Any Wales vs Iran betting tips made at this early stage, will have to be received with an element of caution. However, the Welsh are currently being regarded as favourites for the tie, with an early showing of 2.05, against Iran's 3.75 at William Hill.
This Group B fixture could make or break for both of these outfits, so how they both fair in their opening games - against England in Iran's case, and the USA for Wales - is likely to be a major contributing factor in this match, and affect punters' Wales vs Iran betting picks. Here we take a quick look at some of the markets and opportunities, alongside presenting a brief preview.
This crucial Group B qualifier will kick off at 1 pm local time in the Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, just 14 miles out of Doha on Friday 25th November. The ground has actually been rebuilt on the site of the previous ground, with most of the construction materials reused, and its impressive facade features intricate patterns, representing the culture of Qatar.
Background doesn’t matter. Each game in the World Cup is special, I swear. We want to put other things outside and we just want to concentrate on football. - Dragan Skocic, the Iran national team head coach, after groups were drawn, ESPN
As the middle game for the teams in the group stages, this could be a defining fixture for both of them. Obviously much will depend on how they both faired in the opening matches, so any WC 2022 predictions are tricky, but there is a feeling that a win here would set them both up nicely for their third game, whilst a defeat would bring enormous pressure.
Wales qualified through a delayed and emotional play-off against Ukraine but will fancy their chances here, although taking the Iranian's lightly would be a big error. These two have never met before competitively, but Iran do have more WC tournament experience, appearing here for their 6th time, against just the two for the Welsh. The Wales vs Iran best prediction is to sit on the fence and go for a draw.
Even though each of these teams will have played once in the group before this encounter, leading bookmakers such as Unibet, Bet365, and William Hill have released an early showing for Wales vs Iran winner odds, and as usual, they are very competitive, as these three brands especially, have some of the best offers for any given fixture.
Even though there are only three places between these two in the rankings, it is the Welsh who seem to be fancied the most, with win odds of 2.05, whereas Iran are currently 3.75, and it is 3.25 for the draw. If you are seeking some different markets, why not try the half-time/full-time bet, where a Draw/Wales is 5.0 and the reverse is 7.50. All of these prices are from William Hill.
It is possible to grab Wales vs Iran odds of 11.00 on the correct score of 2-1 to the British team, but if you favour the Iranians then the same scoreline has a price at 13.00. This game has a 0-0 look about it and for that result, there are WC 2022 odds of 8.00, on show.

3. Wales vs Iran Prediction
These two teams seem to be well-matched, so any Wales vs Iran predictions will be made with a lot of caution. Naturally, just how they got on in their first games, will have a strong bearing on approach, tactics, and line-up's for this second match.
Making a Wales vs Iran betting prediction will not be easy, but after overcoming the Ukrainians in an exceptionally difficult situation to get here, the Welsh will probably have that extra fire in their bellies, and might just edge this one. That said, should Iran manage to find a performance and result against England a few days before this, then their confidence levels will be sky high and that could spell trouble for the Welsh.
It is a tricky call, so the safe Wales vs Iran prediction is for a draw, possibly even 0-0. Remember to take a look at our USA vs England betting tips we shared for the other second-round match in this group. After all, its result may be crucial for Wales and Iran ahead of their final group stage matches.
