Man Oman! Danger Game Looming For Socceroos

Oman have been a bogey team for the Socceroos of late with one win and two draws from their last three meetings, but that hasn’t stopped punters from piling the money on Australia in tomorrow night’s Asian Cup game.

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is reporting 99% of the cash has gone on the Australians to make it two from two with $1.40 still on offer for the favourites.

Oman has drifted to $8.00 while the draw is out to $4.60.

“The money trail would suggest an easy win for the Socceroos however we’ve had trouble putting Oman away in recent times. The Omanis looked pretty good against South Korea but Australia’s new-found ability to find the back of the net has punters confident in this one ” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

Even without kicking a ball in anger, Japan has tightened its grip on Asian Cup favouritism. The Blue Samurai are $2.90 ahead of Australia at $3.50.
