Saturday Football Tips: Shoot for profit with Wales' James

Cardiff City Stadium
Wales play their final Euro 2020 warm-up game at Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday

After a 12/5 winner on Friday, our football props column has a 4/1 shot for Wales v Albania which has landed in three of the player's last four starts.

"He’s managed two shots on target in three of his last four starts – away to France and home to Czech Republic and Finland – with 10 shots registered in total across those games."

Back James to have 2+ shots on target @ 4/1

Daniel James could be a player to follow in Wales' final warm-up game ahead of Euro 2020.

The Manchester United star has been peppering the target in recent matches and makes appeal in the shots markets.

He's managed two shots on target in three of his last four starts - away to France and home to Czech Republic and Finland - with 10 shots registered in total across those games.

The left winger has a propensity to cut into more central positions and is a natural inter-changer with Gareth bale, who has played the central role more recently of late.

Therefore 4/1 about him landing 2+ shots on target again looks a tempting price.

Albania are no great shakes and Wales should be on the front foot for much of the contest.

Of course, we can't be sure how Wales will line up - the return of the international friendly this week has shown us the problems of trying to predict the starting XIs - but it's fair to say that James has hardly been overworked at Old Trafford this season. There will be greater concern about the workload of other players so I'd expect James to keep his place.

Given the potential for a raft of substitutions, 8/11 about James having 1+ shot on target is a safer option but the 23-year-old was among the players taken off against France in midweek - a game which saw Wales play more than an hour with 10 men - and still managed 2+.

As ever, if James isn't in the XI when the teams are announced, the Betfair Sportsbook gives you the option of cashing out your bet and getting your stake back.
