Jordan v Uruguay betting tips - Saurez and Cavani to show their class in World Cup playoff

Luis Surez is 10/11 to score on Thursday
Uruguay head to Jordan for the first leg of their World Cup 2014 playoff and they will look to their star strikers Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani to book them their place in Brazil.

Match Odds

Jordan - 14/1 Bet Victor 
Draw - 11/2 William Hill
Uruguay - 1/4 Coral

Jordan have never qualified for a FIFA World Cup. The Middle Eastern nation are, however, just two matches away from reaching Brazil 2014 after beating Uzbekistan on penalties in the AFC qualifying playoff. Those were arguably the biggest matches in the country's footballing history but they are about to be surpassed by a double header with Uruguay, which will determine if Hossam Hassan's side will be heading to Brazil next summer.

Unfortunately for Jordan, Uruguay are a very good side. The South Americans may have only managed to finish fifth in the CONMEBOL qualifying section but they have proven international pedigree, having reached the semi finals of the 2010 World Cup and then won the 2011 Copa America. They have quality all over the field but it is in attack where they really shine.

Manager Oscar Tabarez has two of the best strikers in the world at his disposal in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. The duo scored a combined 16 goals in the group stage and they'll be eagerly anticipating coming up against a Jordan defence that conceded a massive 16 times in the final AFC section.

It's 3/1 at bet365 that Suarez opens the scoring in Thursday's first leg in Jordan or 4/1 that Cavani breaks the deadlock and it's practically impossible to imagine that it won't be one of those pair getting on the scoresheet. They can be covered at 10/11 and 5/4 in the anytime market with the same firm and if stakes are adjusted appropriately then that should result in a small profit if either scores during the 90-minutes. The profits will of course be much bigger if both find the net.

That looks to be the best option for punters as the 1/4 from Coral on a Uruguay win isn't exactly going to make us rich. Stan James go a top price 3/4 on Uruguay covering a one goal handicap with bet365 offering 2/1 on the South Americans winning by at least three but that looks a bit tight. Tabarez has already spoken of his side's need to be careful in the match and his words ring true for punters too:

"If Jordan gives everything it's got in its status as home team, it will make it hard for us, and I'm not being pessimistic or cautious," he said. 
"They don't have any elite football players, but to make a match tough, that's not necessary."

Uruguay, however, do have elite football players so side simply with them on Thursday and just hope that both, rather than just one, is on target.

Recommendations

Back Luis Suarez to score anytime @10/11 with bet365
Back Edinson Cavani to score anytime @5/4 with bet365
