Who Will Finish Top of Group A?

William Hill have Uruguay priced at 11/10 to finish top of Group A with Russia available at 6/4 and Egypt third favourites at 6/1. Russia have already lost Alexander Kokorin to injury with the Zenit player joining Viktor Vasin on the sidelines. They were poor at Euro 2016 but have undoubtedly improved under new coach Stanislav Cherchesov but could still fall short. If they sustain any more injures, they could struggle to even qualify for the knock-out stage of the tournament. Despite being hosts, it’s hard to be confident of Russia’s chances of usurping Uruguay at the top of the standings. The South American side boast Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani in attack and should have too much quality. They finished second behind Brazil in the South American qualifying group and shouldn’t be underestimated. There is also very little incentive to finish second in this section as Spain are the likely opponents in the round of 16.

The two-time World Champions were disappointing in 2014 when losing to Colombia but they should have too much for Russia, Egypt and Saudi Arabia and at a price of 11/10, they are the first of our World Cup Group A betting tips.

Group A Tips

It’s a short-price but William Hill have priced Saudi Arabia as the 1/3 favourites to finish bottom of Group A and it’s difficult to see any other outcome for our World Cup Group A predictions. Egypt could be a dark horse and the African side have been drawn into a decent group. They look strong defensively and have players who are capable of individual brilliance. The Pharaohs possess Mo Salah who has lit up the Premier League and Champions League this season and Bet Victor have priced the prolific winger up at a hugely tempting 11/8 to finish as his country’s top goalscorer at the tournament. He is 50/1 to finish as the tournaments top goalscorer and on current form, it’s hard to rule him out.

Group A Fixtures 


Uruguay vs Russia on June 25th appears to be the group decider and it could be a hugely tense 90 minutes. Bet Victor have priced the South American side up as the 29/20 favourites for this game with Russia available at 2/1. It’s 85/40 to finish all square. The opening World Cup fixture is always a spectacular affair but if our Russia vs Saudi Arabia predictions are to be believed, we could have a low scoring stalemate in Moscow.
