World Cup betting tips for Group D where Argentina are joined by Croatia, Iceland and Nigeria. Argentina will be widely expected to win this group but Croatia will fancy their chances of an upset and it’s hard to rule Nigeria or Iceland out of the predictions too.
This looks like one of the few groups where the favourite to win the group is vunerable – despite having one of the best strike forces going to the World Cup, Argentina are very unbalanced and look relatively poor aside from Messi, Aguero, Higuain and Dybala, there is not much in the way of top class talent. Otemendi will be vital to their chances but we wouldn’t be betting on Argentina to top this group at odds of 8/11.
The most interesting markets in the World Cup betting odds for Group D is for who will finish bottom. Our tipster is rather surprised that Iceland are the favourites for this position and in-fact it could be Nigeria to prop up the table. In our Euro 2020 Group D, we have predicted that Nigeria will actually get no points from their three matches and therefore they’ll finish bottom. Nigeria lost 2-1 against England at Wembley and they also lost 1-0 against Czech Republic in their last friendly. It’s not been the ideal preperation for Nigeria and they’re set to struggle in Russia so the first of our World Cup betting tips is Nigeria to finish bottom of Group D. The odds are 13/10 with Betway.
Argentina are expected to qualify but the selection we’re going for here is Croatia. They have a strong midfield and one of their strikers features as a 150/1 shot in our World Cup top goalscorer predictions. He scored 28 goals last season and can fire Croatia above Iceland and into the last 16. They start against Nigeria which should give them three points and some confidence. Their midfield of Modric, Rakitic, Brozovic, Perisic and Kramaric will be one of the best in the tournament. Croatia to qualify from the group is the second of our World Cup betting tips in Group D. The best odds are 8/15 at Coral.
One other bet to take a look at here ties in with our World Cup top scorer bet and we’re having a little punt on Andrej Kramaric to be top Croatian goalscorer. He netted 28 times in the Bundesliga last season and with group games against Iceland and Nigeria he could be well in the mix alongside Mandzukic to be top scorer for Croatia. The odds for this are 6/1 with Betway and that’s the last of today’s World Cup 2018 betting tips in Group D.
