Colombia v Bolivia | Free Betting Preview | World Cup Qualifier betting tips

With Colombia playing strong at home, and Bolivia awful away from home, our tipsters are backing a comfortable victory for Colombia at Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez, Barranquilla.

Colombia will look to get their World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign back on track on Thursday evening, and the visit of Bolivia should provide them with the perfect opportunity to pick up 3 points.

Colombia have slipped to 6th spot in what is a highly competitive CONMEBOL qualifying table after just 1 win in their last 5 qualifier matches, yet Bolivia should cause them few problems.

Los Altiplanicos recorded just their second win in 19 qualifiers last time out against Paraguay, although that was at home, with Bolivia's away from home record absolutely dismal. Bolivia have not won a World Cup qualifier away from home since 1993, and their last away from home match saw them thrashed 5-0 in Venezuela.

Bolivia have only scored 1 goal away from home in their current campaign against Paraguay in November 2015, and since then they have lost their 4 away matches by an aggregate scoreline of 14-0.

Colombia are massive favorites with SkyBet offering odds @ 1/7 (1.14) while Bolivia can be backed @ 14/1 (15.00) and the draw priced @ 11/2 (6.50) with Bet365

Bolivia are awful away from home and Colombia are strong at home with Argentina the only side to win a World Cup qualifier on Colombian ground since 2009. There could be some appeal in backing Colombia to win to nil @ 8/11 (1.73) even though they will be without Radamel Falcao who misses out through injury.

In Radamel Falcao's place, Duvan Zapata has been called up, but it is more likely to be Carlos Bacca who is charged with scoring the goals for Colombia. 

This is an important World Cup Qualifier for Colombia who can't afford to drop more points if they want to finish in the top 5 of a tough Group.

When Bolivia lose, they tend to lose by a wide margin and our tipsters think that Colombia can win this match and cover the Asian Handicap.     

We propose a handicap bet and backing Colombia to win at -2 looks good @ 11/8 (2.37) and is certainly a more appealing prospect than backing Colombia to score over 1.5 goals @ 2/9 (1.22).
