Algeria, Zambia, Cape Verde and DR Congo. The chances that one of these teams will end up victorious in 2017 is rather high, given the Africa Nations Cup history.

General Betting Advice

Try to approach soccer betting as objectively as possible since emotion can cloud judgement and consequently influence accurate decision-making. Soccer betting can be extremely lucrative, and punters who know their teams’ history, statistics, off-field antics, physical conditioning and the form of individual players plus the manager, are highly likely to reap better rewards.
