Remember there might be some weak teams in the tournament but Iran isn't that weak and Nigeria as well as not as strong as they could be. That said an Iran win has a higher payout on a game that could be a coin toss. Also both teams don't tend to score a lot of goals so this could be a low scoring affair which means bet under 2.5 goals.
