The countdown to the 2018 World Cup continues and we’re taking a closer look at Group C. 1998 winners France are the odds-on favourites to finish top of this section but behind Les Bleus, it looks suitably competitive. We take a look at some of the best World Cup betting tips for Group C.
France are the 1/3 favourites with Coral to finish top of this section and there is little disputing their position as the best team in Group C.
Australia picked up a decent goalless draw with Colombia at the end of March but even under new management, they look the weakest team here. Denmark are dangerous and Peru are unpredictable which leaves the limited Socceroos likely to prop up the table. 10Bet are offering 21/20 on them to finish bottom of the pile and that looks a superb price.
Denmark and Peru look set to battle it out behind France. Peru were the last team to qualify for the tournament but equipped themselves well in a tough South American qualifying group. They finished about Chile and they have the potential to be dangerous opposition. They shouldn’t be taken lightly. Edison Flores is a dangerous playmaker whilst Yoshimar Yotun is likely to hold it all together in the centre of the park. However, Denmark look a well-drilled side under coach Age Hareide and with the spark of Christian Eriksen in their side, they should be able to qualify for the last 16. 888Sport are offering 7/4 on Denmark to finish second in Group C and that looks a terrific bet.
Antoine Griezmann is likely to steal all the headlines for France at this tournament and he has quite rightly been installed towards the top end of the top goalscorer market at the 2018 World Cup. Olivier Giroud recently scored in a friendly against Colombia and is always sharper on International duty but it could be Kylian Mbappe who makes the biggest impact in Russia. The talented forward scored twice against Russia in a recent friendly and at the prices, he looks a decent bet to finish as top goalscorer for Didier Deschamp’s side at the 2018 tournament. Bet Victor make him 7/1 to finish as France’s top goalscorer and that looks decent value.
France have plenty of firepower but have struggled at the back recently. 888Sport are offering Evens for Deschamp’s men to score over 10.5 goals during the course of the tournament and with defensively suspect Australia in Group C, that looks a decent option.
