What it the best World Cup football betting tip from each Group?
If you are feeling lucky already and want to bet on an early World Cup accumulator, then we’ve asked our World Cup tipsters for their best bet from each group and put them all below. This is a great way to bet on the World Cup 2018 because it should keep your bet alive for the first half of the tournament. You will find the full betting tips for each group in their relevant section – but here is a snippet of our early World Cup 2018 betting tips. In our World Cup tips section, we’ve also predicted the score in EVERY one of the group matches.
For Group A we’re ignoring the hosts Russia and putting our money on URUGUAY to win the group. It should be an easy enough group to win for Suarez and Cavani and co. Russia, Egypt and Saudi Arabia make up the other teams and it’d be no surprise to see Uruguay pick up nine points and book their place in the last 16.
For our Group B bet we’re looking at the bottom of the group rather than the top. Spain and Portugal should dominate this group but our World Cup tip is going to be for IRAN to finish the tournament bottom of Group B. They are certainly the minnows here despite having former Manchester United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz as their boss.
France are expected to cruise through to the last 16 from a group containing Denmark, Peru and Australia, but our Group C prediction is not for France to win the group because our tipster thinks there is very little value in taking the odds of 1/3. Instead, he’s advising a bet on Denmark to finish second in the Group at odds of 7/4.
Argentina are the big guns in Group D and their odds of 4/6 to win the group are good enough for our footy tip here. Their opponents are Croatia, Iceland and Nigeria and although it’s not the easiest of fixtures for them, their attacking players such as Messi, Higuain, Aguero and Di Maria should have more than enough to land this betting tip.
This looks like a group Brazil will not lose. Which is ideal for our World Cup outright winner prediction. But for now, the best bet we can find from Group E to go in our World Cup accumulator is for Costa Rica to finish bottom of the group. They had a fairy-tail 2014 World Cup, but that was exactly that, and will not happen again.
It’s hard to look past Germany for a prediction in this group so we’re keeping things simple and betting on them to top the Group after their three fixtures. Mexico don’t look to be the threat they used to be and Switzerland had a great qualifying stage, but flopped at Euro 2016 and might do exactly the same in Russia this summer.
Do we dare tip England to win Group G? No. Belgium are a realistic threat in this group and despite looking like big underdogs, Tunisia and Panama will be fearless when meeting the big two. England’s last group match against Belgium should decide who tops the group but for our World Cup 2018 betting tip, we’re going for Tunisia to finish third in the group. Panama should end pointless.
The last of the World Cup groups often gets forgotten about and Group H hardly stands out. There is the lack of a real World class side here and it looks a shootout between Poland and Colombia to win the group. The other two nations are Japan and Senegal and it would be no real surprise to see one of them sneak into the last 16. However, our bet tip here is for Poland to qualify and that concludes our World Cup 2018 accumulator tips from the eight groups.
World Cup Winner Prediction
We’re already betting on our World Cup winner prediction and the tournament hasn’t even started yet! The team we fancy to win the Russia World Cup are BRAZIL. They have the star man in Neymar and his back-up is filled with world class players. Gabriel Jesus or Firmino will support Neymar in attack along with Coutinho. There is no real weakness in the Brazil World Cup team and that’s why they’re our selection in the World Cup winner odds at 9/2. Brazil should cruise through their group and are massive favourites in the World Cup odds to win Group E. They were great in qualifying and in Ederson and Allison Brazil are blessed to have two World class goalkeepers. They may be favourites but are the selection for our World Cup tips betting in Russia this summer.
World Cup Top Goalscorer Predictions
We’ve already selected three players for a World Cup top goalscorer bet tip and one of them is a massive 150/1 outsider in the World Cup odds. There is always a shock in the top scorer list and so we think it’s well worth having a few quid on some outsiders. The likes of Dele Alli and Cristian Eriksen are huge in the World Cup odds for a top goalscorer so why not have an each-way bet on one of these? It’s always one of the most exciting markets for our World Cup predictions and one we love to get stuck into. Messi and Neymar are favourites to be top goalscorer, but who will you select from the odds? Will Harry Kane get as many goals as people expect? We’ve found the odds for the Tottenham striker to be top goalscorer at the World Cup and it’s in our England World Cup betting tips section, along with odds for EVERY bet you can place on England this summer.
What are the best World Cup free bets?
The summer will be absolutely teeming with World Cup free bets, so you’d be daft not to make the most of them. Our World Cup free bets page will feature all the best offers across the UK’s top bookies, as well as all the terms and conditions to help you pick the best offer for you. Most bookmakers will give you a free bet when opening a new account, so it’s well worth opening multiple accounts to really make the most of your World Cup bets this upcoming summer. You’ll also find a number of Russia 2018 enhanced odds offers that are well worth taking advantage of.
