Today’s World Cup Betting Tips for Friday 15th June
The 2018 World Cup is finally underway and there are three matches taking place throughout Friday. Groups A and B look extremely competitive and June 15th throws up a number of fascinating fixtures. We’ve picked out today’s best World Cup betting tips.
Today’s World Cup Fixtures
Group A favourites Uruguay kick off their campaign against Egypt. The Pharaohs will need a late fitness check on Mo Salah with the Liverpool winger a doubt for this opening fixture. There’s an Iberian derby to finish off the day as European champions Portugal take on manager-less Spain and Morocco face Iran in the remaining Group B clash.
Egypt v Uruguay (Group A) – Ekaterinburg, 1pm
Morocco v Iran (Group B) – St Petersburg, 4pm
Portugal v Spain (Group B) – Sochi, 7pm
Egypt vs Uruguay Prediction
Uruguay start as favourites for Group A and they will be expected to get off to the perfect start in Ekaterinburg. They have a two-pronged attack of Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani and an experienced defence which contains the irrepressible Diego Godin. Egypt could be without Mo Salah for this opener and they look a very ordinary side without the Liverpool winger in their XI. Uruguay began the 2014 World Cup with a defeat but they are unlikely to slip up in this game. They scored plenty of goals in qualifying and should be able to find the net here. They are a little short on the outright market so adding in Over 1.5 Goals increases the value. Uruguay to Win and Over 1.5 Goals is priced at 11/10 with Betfair. Use Betfair’s £100 in free bets to back Uruguay dominance in this game.
Morocco vs Iran Prediction
Morocco are widely considered to be the best African side in the tournament and they begin their Group B campaign against Iran. The Asian side were one of the first to qualify and they could be tough to break down but the Atlas Lions should collect three points from this encounter. Their friendly results have been impress and they cruised through qualifying. They are marshalled at the back by the superb Mehdi Benatia whilst they have flair in the final third with Hakim Ziyech coming off the back of an impressive Eredivisie season. They should be able to start with a victory. Use the £50 free bet from Ladbrokes to back Morocco to beat Iran below.

3 If Morocco win, you get £110 in CASH

Portugal vs Spain Prediction
The last of today’s World Cup betting tips comes from the Iberian derby between Spain and Portugal. Spain will go into the tournament without manager Julen Lopetegui who was dismissed ahead of the tournament but they remain favourites for this opening encounter. Portugal are tough to break down with Fernando Santos prioritising results over performances. They didn’t win many games at Euro 2016 yet still managed to triumph in France and they recently held Belgium to a goalless draw. With winnable games remaining for both sides, a draw wouldn’t be the worst result in the world and these two sides have drawn three of their last seven meetings including their latest clash at Euro 2012. It’s 11/5 to end all-square and Betfred’s £30 free bet can be used to back this outcome below.
