World Cup Group C gets underway on June 16 and will see one of the Russia 2018 favourites France line up against Australia. Get a grip with our World Cup 2018 Group C betting tips and predictions.
There’s going to be a real battle for that second spot and the games in which Peru, Denmark and Australia play each other could produce some real exciting football. It’s a group that will ultimately be all about the French in what we expect to be a good tournament for Didier Deschamps’ men.
With the tournament in Russia starting soon, we’ve taken a look at Group C’s latest odds and in this section you’ll find our World Cup 2018 Group C predictions.
France World Cup Odds
France Odds To Win Group C: 2/7
Odds To Qualify From Group C: 1/20
Bet on France to win the World Cup with a £20 free bet at Ladbrokes.
Les Bleus are the third favourite for the World Cup at 11/2 and we’d certainly back them with a free bet to get some added insurance for our World Cup winner bet.
They’ve a fantastic squad with World Cup winner Didier Deschamps at the helm knowing what it takes. We expect them to breeze through the Group Stage and we’d expect Antoine Griezmann to bang in plenty as he bids for World Cup Top Scorer.
First up for them is Australia where they’re 2/11 to win that game. Starting with a bang will be key for France and a 3-0 win looks good value at 5/1.
Peru is next up for France in what could be a potentially tricky tie. The South American side are ranked 10th in the world so can’t be underestimated, although we still expect them to conquer.
The French are 1/ 3 for that tie while a draw at 15/4 could be an interesting place to put your money.
Denmark are last up and we expect the likes of Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe and N’Golo Kanye to be too strong for them. Of course, their opposition have Christian Eriksen, who tore apart Ireland in the play-offs, but France are an entirely different beast and should complete their Group C fixtures with another victory. Is France to win all three group matches the best bet of Group C?
Denmark World Cup Odds
Denmark Odds To Win Group C: 4/1
Odds To Qualify From Group C: 4/5
Bet on World Cup Group C with a £20 free bet from Paddy Power.
The Danish are second favourite to qualify from the group but it could be a tough route to the Round of 16 with both France and Peru tough prospects.
The game against the latter will be the big one for them and it’s their first match on June 16.
Age Hareide’s men are at Evens to win that game but it’ll take a huge effort from star man Christian Eriksen who they’ll be relying on to pull the strings throughout the tournament.
They’ll see Australia as a banker, who they will play ahead of France in the final game of the group.
The Straight Forecast odds are suggesting France/Denmark are the favourites to qualify at 6/4 and should they beat Peru we’d see this as an absolute banker bet for our World Cup 2018 Group C predictions this summer.
Peru World Cup Odds
Peru Odds To Win Group C: 9/1
Odds To Qualify From Group C: 6/4
Bet on Peru at the 2018 World Cup with a £30 free bet from William Hill.
It’ll be Peru’s first appearance in the World Cup since 1982 and are somewhat of an unknown quantity despite being ranked 10th in the world.
They reached Russia 2018 with a win against New Zealand in the play-offs and will face their biggest game in recent history when they go up against Denmark on June 16.
It’ll perhaps be the game they need to get a result in with the Danish their closest rivals for second spot. They’re 5/2 for that game and we’d potentially fancy a shock here. The same could apply against the Australians. They’re a nation that really could go either way, just as Costa Rica did four years ago.
Australia World Cup Odds
Australia Odds To Win Group C: 25/1
Odds To Qualify From Group C: 4/1

The Australians are among the lowest ranked sides in the tournament and are being given little hope of qualifying by the bookmakers.
We’re of course well aware of a number of players expected to board the plane with the likes of Aaron Mooy, Brad Smith and Mile Jedinak all playing for English clubs, while Tim Cahill will also play his last major tournament.
Their toughest game will come up first, taking on France in a tie they’re 14/1 to win. We wouldn’t fancy that however with the French oozing class.
Against Denmark and Peru though there is perhaps a glimmer of hope. They got to the Round of 16 back in 2006, beating Japan and earning a draw with Croatia, so they do have form.
Last World Cup they were given a real group of death, losing every game to Netherlands, Chile and Spain so they’ll be desperate to have a fairer crack at it this time.
They’re 10/3 to beat Denmark in their second game, with a draw perhaps a nice punt at 12/5, while their final game against Peru they’re at decent odds of 11/4.
Last World Cup aside, they do battle hard and pick up results. It is feasible they can do it again and a straight forecast bet of France/Australia at 5/1 is what World Cup free bets are made for.
