Place your bets on the Africa Cup of Nations
When betting on the Africa Cup of Nations, it pays to do your research. Many teams feature players from various leagues around the globe, with travel being a major factor in qualification.
With 24 teams participating in the final tournament, 52 countries compete in the qualification stage. Many teams are difficult to beat in their home country, so it is important for qualifying campaigns that have home advantage.
Look out for players who are improving every match during the final tournament. As the tournament progresses, many key players find their groove and the winners often hit their strike in quarter-finals.
First, it is important to mention that the 2021 edition of Africa Cup of Nations will actually be held in 2022.
AFCON 2021 was originally scheduled to begin on January 9, 2021 with the final being set for February 6. The Confederation of African Football (CAF), however, decided to postpone the tournament due to the current global situation.
Five teams have already secured their spots at AFCON 2021. The host nation Cameroon qualified automatically. There are still 19 spots available, despite the fact that the final rounds for qualifiers won’t take place until March.
This is why betting on the AFCON winner at the moment is difficult and not the best idea unless there are compelling reasons to back a particular nation. We don’t know what to pick at the moment so we won’t be making any Africa Cup of Nations predictions.
