World Cup 2018 Betting Tips – Three Best Bets for Group H

World Cup 2018 betting tips

World Cup betting tips for Group H where Colombia and Poland are joined by Japan and Senegal. It’s a fairly open group with no clear favourite although Colombia and Poland will be expected to qualify for the knock-out round. Senegal were exceptional in 2002 and are dangerous to write off whilst Japan are likely to quietly go about their business. 

Following their exploits in Brazil, Colombia were always likely to be fancied in this section. Jose Pekerman’s side can be backed at 6/4 with Betfair to finish above the other three teams in Group H whilst Poland are narrow second favourites at 13/8. Can this dominant pair ease through to the next round? Will Poland’s defence hold firm throughout the group stage? Will Sadio Mane fire Senegal to success?

World Cup Group H Prediction

Colombia were uninspiring during qualifying but they have a hugely talented team and they can make it through to the knock-out rounds. James Rodriguez will be supplying Radamel Falcao throughout the tournament whilst Juan Cuadrado will also be lively from wider areas. At the back, Yerry Mina and Davinson Sanchez should be able to hold firm and they stand a great chance of finishing top of the pile. Poland are strong and they have Robert Lewandowski in their side but their defence is far from secure and they may concede a few crucial goals along the way. The South American side put three past France in a friendly at the end of March and have showed this class in small doses so far but they should have the quality to win this section. Colombia to Finish Top is the first of our World Cup betting tips in Group H. The odds are 6/4 with Betfair. 

Who Will Qualify from Group H?

Senegal ripped up the form book in 2002 and beat the holders in the opening game of the tournament. They’ve struggled to match those performances since but they are close to getting back to their best. Aliou Cisse, who featured prominently in that 2002 side leads his side to the tournament off the back of a hugely successful qualifying campaign and there are enough quality players in the side to progress to the round of 16. Sadio Mane is the most notable player in the side and his pace and power is likely to cause their rivals plenty of problems. They may not be able to progress much further in the tournament but they can equip themselves well in Group H and emerge from this hugely competitive foursome. Senegal to Qualify is the second of our World Cup betting tips in Group H. The odds are 23/17 with Sporting Bet.

Who Will Finish Bottom of Group H?

Japan don’t come into the tournament in good form. They beat a youthful-looking Paraguay side on May 12th but still conceded two goals. Akira Nishino hasn’t had long to work with his squad and that could cause problems for the Blue Samurai in Group H. They are an ageing side who still carry a threat but aren’t particularly convincing. They are reasonably resolute but they lack firepower and they could struggle to pick up many points in Russia. They have a lack of quality up front and may be propping up the section. Japan to Finish Bottom is the third of our World Cup betting tips in Group H. The odds are 11/1o with Ladbrokes.
