World Cup 2018 Betting Tips


Tournament Winner – Brazil @ 9/2

  • Best Bookies to use – Betfred
  • Sign-up offer – bet £10 get £30 free
  • World Cup offer – bet £10 on a World Cup winner > get a £10 free bet each time they win a match.

The opening selection for our World Cup 2018 betting tips comes from the tournament winner odds and we’re sticking to our original selection and betting on Brazil. They’re favourites to win the tournament but you’ll still get odds of 9/2 if you use the correct bookies. They have a favourable draw in Group E and if the tournament goes as expected, they’ll face a very winnable match in the last 16 against Croatia, Iceland or Nigeria.

With Neymar back to full fitness and scoring in his two return friendlies, coupled with goals for Coutinho, Jesus and Firmino in those matches, there is very little to put anybody off betting on Brazil to win the World Cup. They strolled through South American qualifying and have one of the best attacking line-ups in the World at the moment, their back-up forwards are Firmino, Douglas Costa and Willian – three players who would get in most world starting line-ups.

Despite being the favourites, we’re confident that Brazil can go all the way and get us the outright winner for our World Cup 2018 betting tips this summer.

Tournament Winner (Each-way) – Uruguay @ 28/1

  • Best Bookie to use – bet365
  • Sign-up offer – up to £100 in bet credits
  • World Cup offer – bet on a tournament winner and get a refund if they get knocked out on penalties

Having an each-way bet on a World Cup winner is always fun and our selection for this summer is Uruguay. They should win Group A ahead of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and hosts Russia, and if they meet Portugal in the last 16 as predicted, then we’d be predicting a Uruguay win here too. They have Suarez and Cavani in their ranks and a young midfield that could shine at the tournament. The defense is build on Atletico Madrid foundations and that is ideal for this type of tournament football.

At odds of 28/1 the bet obviously comes with an element of risk but bet365’s offer of a refund if our team gets knocked out on penalties means this is the ideal bookmaker to bet on Uruguay to win the World Cup. A £10 each-way bet is advised and if you are a bet365 new account holder through this sign-up link, you’d get £20 in bet credits to play with as well.

World Cup Top Goalscorer Tip – Gabriel Jesus @ 16/1

  • Best Bookie to use – Paddy Power
  • Sign-up offer – £20 CASH refund if your first bet loses
  • World Cup offer – bet on a top goalscorer and get a £2 free bet each time they score a goal

The next World Cup betting tip is a top goalscorer prediction and we’re going with Gabriel Jesus here. He has been given the number 9 shirt and goes into the tournement in fantastic form. Neymar is shorter in the top scorer betting but Jesus could get the goals from Neymar and Coutinho’s creativity. If Brazil are to go all the way to the final as predicted, then Jesus will surely bag himself a few goals.

Paddy Power are not only offering the best odds of 16/1 and a risk free £20 bet for their new customers, but if you bet on a top scorer you’ll get a £2 free bet for each goal he scores. Therefore we’d recommend a £20 bet on Gabriel Jesus to be World Cup top goalscorer – if the bet loses you get a £20 refund PAID IN CASH, plus a £2 free bet each time he scores in Russia.

World Cup Top Goalscorer Each-Way Tip – Christian Eriksen @ 100/1

  • Best bookie to use – Ladbrokes
  • Sign-up offer – £50 World Cup free bet
  • World Cup offer – Top price on all World Cup top scorer bets until 4pm Thursday

The next of our World Cup 2018 betting tips is a punt on a huge odds top goalscorer each-way tip. We’re going with Denmark’s star man Christian Eriksen who goes into the tournament on the back of a goal in Denmark’s last friendly. He was the hero in the qualifying play-off against Republic of Ireland when he got a hat-trick and he’s definitely in with a chance of getting a few goals in group matches against Peru and Australia. Last World Cup, the top scorer accolade went to 125/1 shot James Rodriguez so if Eriksen can get Denmark through to the latter stages, we definietly think he can out-run his odds of 100/1, with four places at 1/4 the odds available with Ladrokes.

Get a £50 free bet from Ladbrokes when you open a new account using this Ladbrokes sign-up link and we’d recommend betting on an outsider with it, because it’s a free bet anyway and a risk free chance to get a huge win.

World Cup Golden Ball Betting Tip – Philippe Coutinho @ 33/1

  • Best bookie to use – William Hill
  • Sign-up offer – bet £10 to get £30 free bets
  • World Cup Offer – bet on a winner and get a £5 free bet each time they win a match

William Hill are the recommended bookmaker for this bet because they’re offering the best odds for Coutinho to be the best player at the World Cup. If Brazil do go onto win the tournament like our World Cup betting tips are predicting, then it is likely to be one of their players to win the Golden Ball award. Coutinho is the man to pull the strings for Brazil and his supply line to Jesus and Neymar will be vital for the Samba Boys. If he can get a good number of assists and chip in with a goal or two, Coutinho could be the man picking up the World Cup best player award.

As well as the best odds for Coutinho, you can bet £10 on him with a new William Hill account via this link and win or lose you will get THREE free £10 bets added to your new account. They also give a £5 free bet each time the team you back to win the tournament win a match. They’re our top overall bookmaker for betting on this World Cup.
