Despite the huge challenges that has beset sports in recent times especially the outbreak of the Omicron variant of the corona-virus discovered in Africa which plunge the world into fear of another lockdown and travel restrictions, we are finally enjoying the spectacle of the African Cup of Nations.
It is amazing how the betting business is enjoying a boom at this time. There are many business minded Nigerians that are visiting www.betkingagency.com to apply to become a Betking agent. Other betting platforms are also opening up shop in a bid to accommodate the huge betting traffic at this time. This is all because there is a huge potential in the permutations for the African Cup of Nations. A lot of Nigerians believe they are very familiar with football in the African continent and can relatively predict the outcome of some of the matches taking place to make some quick bucks at this time.
One of the questions that has fueled this believe among sports enthusiasts is the question of “how far can Nigeria go at the African Cup of Nations competition?” Not only are some people claiming that the Nigeria team is going to be a major flop but they claim that the team may possibly have its worst ever outing in this years competition.
With BetKing creating a special market category for the African Cup of Nations, and even a special market focused on the Nigerian national team with very high odds, it is quite an exciting time for bettors.
So how far will Nigeria go at the AFCON?
It is expected that the team should be able to get out of the group stage that has the likes of Sudan, Guinea Bissau, and Egypt. The strongest challenge for Nigeria at this stage is Egypt and that team is not as strong and invincible as it used to be despite the presence of Mohammed Salah in the team. With Nigeria and Egypt touted as the strongest teams in the group, they are expected to claim the spots for the round of 16. However if Nigeria falls at the group stage, a staggering 17.00 odds is set against them on the BetKing AFCON special platform.
One cannot remember the time that the team failed to make it to the quarter final stage of the competition. The last time out, the were denied a spot in the finals by the eventual champions Algeria and this time failing to cross the round of 16 hurdle will not make bettors happy as the odd for that stage is the lowest at 2.30.
Getting on to the quarter final if the team is eliminated, the odd is 3.50, elimination in the semi final stage carries a 5.50 odd while getting to the final and then missing out on the trophy attracts 11.00 odds. If Nigeria goes ahead to win the competition, the odd is 12.00.
The competition will be fierce indeed as no nation can be regarded as a minion in African football anymore. However, competitions of this nature are always full of upsets and surprises. While Algeria is seen by many as the favorites to retain the trophy, Nigeria, despite the absence of some of their big name stars are no pushovers in Africa and it is expected that the team will at the least make the quarter final mark in this year’s African Cup of Nations.
So get ready Nigeria, the business opportunity is huge. To become a BetKing agent just go to www.betkingagency.com and position yourself for the AFCON business as Nigerians will be coming out in their drove to place their bets on different market options that BetKing affords them.
