Today’s World Cup Betting Tips for Sunday 17th June
The 2018 World Cup continues on Sunday with three matches taking place throughout the day. Groups E and F will see some of the bigger sides begin their campaign and the first matches look mouthwatering prospects. We’ve picked out today’s best World Cup betting tips.
Today’s World Cup Fixtures
2014’s surprise package Costa Rica are in action at 1pm as they face Serbia. Holders Germany start their defence with a game against Mexico. The pair met in Russia 12 months ago during the Confederations Cup with Joachim Low’s youthful-looking side triumphing. Finally, tournament favourites Brazil are in action at 7pm as they take on Switzerland in Group E.
Costa Rica vs Serbia – (Group E) – Samara – 1pm
Germany vs Mexico – (Group F) – Moscow – 4pm
Brazil vs Switzerland – (Group E) – Rostov – 7pm
Costa Rica vs Serbia Prediction
Costa Rica announced their arrival on the World Stage in 2014 by cruising through the group stage and making it to the quarter-finals. They were eliminated in a penalty shoot-out and were incredibly tough to beat. They open up their 2018 campaign against Serbia, who are a side on the up. Both teams have been a bit inconsistent during their warm-up matches with Costa Rica showing very little against England before being battered by Belgium six days ago. Serbia were excellent against Nigeria and Bolivia but slipped up against Morocco and Chile. They look far more balanced with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the side and are far more attacking under Mladen Krstajic. They should be able to produce an entertaining 90 minutes of football and although they should pick up three points, backing goals in this game is probably a safer option. The first of today’s World Cup betting tips is Over 2.5 Goals which can be backed at 7/5 with Ladbrokes.

Germany vs Mexico Prediction
2014 winners Germany begin their campaign against Mexico in Group F. Joachim Low’s side are amongst the favourites for the tournament but they haven’t been particularly popular amongst bettors. They are extremely well-drilled and have been able to leave some top class players out of their 23-man squad. They beat Mexico in the Confederations Cup and will be expected to get off to a winning start here. Mexico have some stylish players but they struggle at the back and they haven’t been helped by the news that Diego Reyes has been ruled out of the tournament with hamstring injury. They beat Scotland 1-0 in a recent friendly but their 2-0 defeat to Denmark has left Mexican fans worried ahead of their Group F campaign. Germany should be able to capitalise on the fragile confidence of this Mexican squad. Germany -1 on the handicap is the second of today’s World Cup betting tips and is available at 7/5 with Betfair. You can use their £100 in free bets to back an easy victory for the holders.
Brazil vs Switzerland Prediction
Brazil will be determined to bounce back from their embarrassing defeat at the 2014 tournament and they look in excellent shape. Tite’s has transformed the team and they look highly efficient and extremely dangerous. The Selecao are excellent in the final third but have also been keeping clean sheets and their successive wins against Austria and Croatia have provoked plenty of support in the outright market. They face Switzerland in their first Group E game and will be keen to get off to a positive start. The Swiss needed a play-off to secure their berth at the tournament but they lack firepower and there is a lot of pressure on Xherdan Shaqiri to deliver at this tournament. They could come up short against a solid Brazilian defence. The South American side kept four clean sheets in their last six qualifying matches and they have yet to concede a goal in 2018. The third of today’s World Cup betting tips is Brazil to Win to Nil which is available at 11/10 with William Hill. They are offering £30 in free bets and regular bet boosts throughout the tournament.
