The 2018 World Cup continues on Monday with three matches taking place throughout the day. Group H get underway and we will see the likes of Poland and Colombia begin their campaigns. We’ve picked out today’s best World Cup betting tips.
The two favourites in Group H begin their quest to qualify for the knock-out round with Colombia expected to get the better over out-of-form Japan. Poland face a potentially tricky tie against Senegal whilst hosts Russia are back in action when they take on Egypt. The Pharaohs should ask a few questions of Russia.
Colombia vs Japan – (Group H) – Mordovia Arena – 1pm
Poland vs Senegal – (Group H) – Otkrytiye Stadium – 4pm
Russia vs Egypt – (Group A) – Saint-Petersburg Stadium – 7pm
Japan ended a five game win-less streak with a 4-2 victory over Paraguay prior to the tournament but they have been in poor form and are not likely to make an impact in Group H. These two sides met at the 2014 World Cup with Colombia securing a 4-1 victory in the group stage. A similar result is not out of the question here. The Blue Samurai switched managers just two months ago and the change hasn’t had the desired effect. This is the weakest Japanese team in quite some time and they could struggle against a streetwise Colombian outfit. James Rodriguez is the reigning top scorer and will be looking to have an impact on this game. Jose Pekerman’s side are a short price but they should be backed in this clash. Colombia to Win is the first of today’s World Cup betting tips and is 7/10 with Betfred. You can use their free £30 bet on this match, details can be found below.

Poland will be fancied to progress from Group H and they will be relying on the goals of Robert Lewandowski once again. They were one of the more entertaining sides during qualifying and scored two or more goals in nine of their ten matches. They will want to get off to a fast start and will be expected to attack from the whistle. They don’t have the best defensive record and the injury to Kamil Glik does not help matters. Senegal are difficult to beat and they will be looking to create an impression in just their second ever World Cup appearance. They are dangerous in the final third and Sadio Mane provides their main threat. This could be a really entertaining clash between two sides who have an air of unpredictability about them. Both Teams to Score? Yes can be backed at 21/20 with Bet Victor and they are offering a £40 free bet to all new customers to use on the 2018 World Cup.
Russia got off to the perfect start with a thumping 5-0 win against Saudi Arabia. The hosts will be looking to secure their place in the knock-out round with three points from this game with Egypt. Russia looked decent in attack but were rarely tested at the other end and the Pharaohs will provide more of a threat. Hector Couper’s side are travelling over 1,300 miles from their base to Saint Petersburg and they’ve had a days less rest. Mo Salah may get a start in this game after being rested against Uruguay and he will at least give them added impetus in the final third. The hosts come into this tie full of confidence and should be able to make it successive victories. The second of today’s World Cup 2018 betting tips is Russia to Win and they can be backed at 11/10 with Ladbrokes. You can use their £50 free bet to back the hosts.
