Group G Betting Tips:

Group G looks set to be one of the closest groups at the World Cup with Germany and Portugal vying for top spot. The Germans are favourites to win the group and have reached four semi-finals in their last four tournaments. They have only lost one World Cup group games since 1986 and scored 39 goals in nine World Cup qualifying matches. However their defence is a weak spot, Sweden put seven past them in qualifying and they concede a lot of sloppy goals. Their opener against Portugal will be key and Germany have won their last seven tournament opening matches. For our World Cup Group G betting tip on Germany bet on them to get over 6.5 points at 9/10. Portugal stuttered in qualifying but look much more solid under their new coach and have a certain Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks. They have a solid tournament record since 2000 and can definitely get out of this group with Germany. 5/1 to make the semi-finals is a bet that has legs but instead Mark is mad keen on the 19/20 for Portugal to pick up over 4.5 points for his Portugal World Cup tip.

Ghana come next in the group and have a settled squad similar to that which were unlucky at South Africa 2010 when Luis Suarez punched a ball off the goal-line and Gyan missed the last minute penalty. They had their best every qualifying but struggle against top nations outside of Africa. Their match vs the USA probably decides who avoids finishing bottom. USA are poor and could struggle to pick up a point. Their squad is the weakest ever at a World Cup and the inexperienced defence could have a really tough time against Germany and Portugal. When Altidore is leading your line you know you are in trouble so for our final Group G prediction go with USA to pick up under 2.5 points at 21/10.

Group H Betting Tips:

Belgium look set to take Group H by storm with their golden generation of players who are all playing at the very top level around Europe. They breezed through qualifying for the World Cup but have not won in their last four matches. Benteke is a big loss and they need to make sure they find a way to get the best out of Edin Hazard. A last 16 match vs Germany or Portugal awaits and that is where we are predicting Belgium will be eliminated at 27/10 with Sportingbet. Russia are second favourites in the betting to qualify but their ageing squad and poor defence means they could struggle.

South Korea come next having only just negotiated qualifying, with goalscoring being their main concern. They are poor at defending set pieces but their pace going forward will trouble defences. Algeria are the final team in Group H and Mark is putting his neck on the line and for his World Cup 2014 bet prediction he is backing Algeria to qualify behind Belgium. They were the fourth top scorers in African qualifying and keep possession well. Their defence is the weak point but if they can iron out their problems at defending set pieces they could go well.
