The Socceroos, despite playing away, are hot favourites and well backed for tomorrow night’s World Cup qualifying match against Syria.

Online bookmaker sportsbet has the Socceroos at $1.70 and Syria $4.80.

Malaysia’s Hang Jebat Stadium will host the match and a drawn result is $3.65.

The Socceroos are riding a knife edge to qualify for Russia 2018 and are currently $1.85 to qualify and the same price to miss the cut.

“This is a huge game for the Socceroos, we expect them to rise to the occasion and so do the punters. By all reports the pitch is not in the best of shape and will probably suit Syria, but even with that hurdle the Socceroos should be too strong,’’ said’s Will Byrne.
