Our top predictions

 

In the previous World Cup 2018, we saw an impressive victory for Germany who was literally unbeatable and no other team, despite their efforts, could measure up and cancel the potential of Germans. Despite being tight against the U.S and being drawn with Ghana during the semi-finals, she managed to beat Brazil and Argentina by 1-0.

In the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Germany shocked the world by being eliminated on the stage phase. No one expected that but now, the tournament is way more open. However, Brazil remains one of the favorite and England has clean way up to the semi-finals. Could it be the year for the second star on the Tree Lion’s shirt?

Bet on the final of the World Cup: our predictions, odds and analysis

Our bet: France wins the match

Rating: 19/20 at Bet365

Here we are! The big final is finally coming soon and we know the teams who will fight for the title.

Against all odds, Croatia managed to qualify, eliminating England in a very frustrating match, and winning once again after the 90 minutes. Thanks to a last-minute goal, they managed to avoid the penalty shoot outs. On their last three games, they played every time at least 120 minutes.

It’s also important to notice that they’ll only have 4 days off before the final.

To the  contrary, France managed to win all its match within the 90 minutes, being more consistent each time. Mbappe, if he continues to play at this level, will probably be the man of the tournament and in good position for the Ballon d’Or. Hugo Lloris is also in a really good shape. He saved his team twice, against Uruguay and Belgium with magnificent saves.

Regarding the odds offered on the different websites, France clearly is the big favorite to win this final, and the tournament.

However, the obvious prediction for this game is that France will win the game. if you want a higher odds, you can ad a goalscorer (most probably Griezmann or Mbappe) or a handicap to France’s victory.

Outrights bets

Bet on the best scorer of the World Cup

Leading goalscorers

  • 1st Harry Kane: 1/20
  • 2nd  Romelu Lukaku: 20/1
  • 3rd Antoine Griezmann: 40/1
  • 3rd Kylian Mbappe 66/1

Accurately predicting who is going to be the No.1 goalscorer in this year’s world cup is a challenge and we can’t know for sure but we know already who the top 5 will be.

Harry Kane: The English scorer began his World Cup in the best way he could do. He is now on the top of the scoreboards and, regarding England’s opponent in the next 2 games, he should keep on scoring goals. He is our absolute for the best scorer of the World Cup title.

Lukaku: As Kane, Lukaku enjoyed his games against Panama and Tunisia to score as many goals as possible. And it worked, as he is now one goal behind the English man. With Hazard and De Bruyne, Lukaku has everything’s he needs to keep on going. The battle with Kane will be passionate top follow.

Kylian Mbappe: The young French player is revealing himself to the world during this World Cup. After his astonishing performance against Argentina is the round of 16, Mbappe has now scored 3 goals in his first major international tournament. If he keeps on performing at that level, there’s no doubt France will go far, giving more occasion to score and to join Harry Kane on the top of the scorer’s leaderboard.

Now if you are going to place a stake on the top scorer category, we suggest you don’t go beyond 2.5% (from your bankroll) as these kinds of bets are risky for new betters. You need to predict accurately and precisely to win and we suggest you try your luck on more attractive bets throughout the World Cup.

Top team per continent

Bet365 provides numerous picks for the Russia World Cup and this makes a great catch, as the players can pick the team which is going to perform the best throughout this World Cup. This is safe and easy bet to try out. We anticipate Brasil is going to take the lead for South America and for Europe it’s going to be France, Belgium or England (as the top teams per continent).

Who is going to win the cup?

There is not much doubt that Brazil is most likely to win, even just a few months prior the World Cup begins. The French team is the most likely to win according to Bet365 and the odds given are 4/9. With robust players like Griezmann, Kante or Mbappe this will be an easy option.

Odds Breakdown on leading markets

The bookmakers all aim to provide us with the most lucrative odds, and we better take a closer look to see what the best picks bookies offer, especially in 2 of the highest popular markets. The first noteworthy market is “Outright Winner” (winner or the direct winner of W.C in other words). This marker is among the most lucrative ones as its odds are highly rewarding. In the 2014 World Cup, the bookmakers offered for Brazil 7.00+ odds but other factors contributed to this such as flakey weather conditions and because it’s the nation with the most vivid soccer fans of the globe.

In this year’s World Cup, something similar could take place and weather is not to be underestimated when it comes to affecting the efficiency of the team players–but it won’t be hot and humid like in Brazil, it maybe cold and windy.

After doing an extensive comparison of the two markets, here we present you the results.

Best Goalscorer of the competition

The top goalscorers to win are Harry Kane of course at odds 1/7 Lukaku at odds 10/1, and third, comes Mbappe at odds 25/1. Again, Bet365 comes across as the prevailing bookie that provides the most lucrative odds on the Leading Goalscorer category compared to Ladbrokes and William Hill.

The rest bookies (Betfred, Coral, Ladbrokes) in Britain have kept their odds unchanged currently and some adjustments are anticipated to take place towards the middle of February or till the stage the last games of national leagues start in nations with robust teams like England, France, and Spain.

Expired predictions

Bet on the semifinals of the World Cup: our predictions, odds and analysis

Bet on England v Croatia: analysis, prognosis and odds

Our bet: England wins the match

Rating: 11/8 at Bet365

England and Croatia both make approximatively the same tournament. They realized astonishing performances at the beginning of the World Cup (England won 6-1 against Panama and Croatia won 3-0 against Argentina) but then struggled to maintain this level of performances. England’s defeat against Belgium was a strange game that England clearly didn’t play at 100%.

However, thanks to Germany and Spain being eliminated way earlier than expected, England and Croatia faced opponents who were clearly under their level.

Croatia qualified twice thanks to their goalkeeper during penalty while England managed to succeed against Sweden in the first 90 minutes.

Harry Kane being in a great shape (he is currently leading the scorer board) and Pickford proving is great value game after game, we think the Three Lions should be able to win this semi-final and qualify for the final.

We bet on England with a nice odds of 11/8 on bet365.

Bet on Belgium – France: analysis, prognosis and odds

Our bet: Belgium wins the match

Rating: 21/10 at Bet365

Real achievement, the victory of the Belgians against Brazil may be the trigger that will finally bring Belgium to a first international title. Winner 2-1 with a trio Hazard – De Bruyne – Lukaku who finally manages to shine together in a top match, the Belgians have proved that they were part of the best teams in the world. Thibault Courtois also made an outstanding match. All lights are green before this semifinal.

For its part, France has defeated Uruguay without Cavani. Dominant, Les Bleus have still made some fears against a lower Uruguay team whose best player was unavailable. Antoine Griezmann, although the author of a decisive pass and a goal, always seems to evolve a tone below what he can do. Giroud remains silent since the start of this World Cup.

However, the negative point for the Belgians is Thomas Meunier, who was able to control Neymar during the quarter-finals but will be suspended for this match. This absence could be really disabling for Belgium.

We still think the Belgians are able to repeat the feat of the match against Brazil by winning this semi-final against France. The long-awaited golden generation will finally be able to shine in a World Cup. In addition, this match promises to be a final before the time. The winner will be very clearly a favorite for the final victory.

Although they are not favorites, we bet on a victory of the Belgians with a rating of 3.25 at Bet365.

Semi-Final Qualifications

This stake type is probably the most ideal for new punters that seek something less risky and complex. The semi-final qualification bets are classified as the leading 10 most attractive odds of this year’s World Cup. The most popular teams like England, Brazil and France are most likely to qualify but that doesn’t mean we should ignore some wild horse teams that could change the final outcomes. The following teams are awarded the most tempting odds to make to the quarter-final stage:

  • England 2/5
  • France 4/9
  • Brazil 8/15
  • Crioatia 8/15

Outright odds for the World Cup winner

The three top teams to win according to Bet365 odds, are France at odds 2/1, next comes England at odds 11/4 and Belgium at 11/4. The above odds rank equally in the majority of bookies but things can adjust as the final time of the World Cup comes closer and especially in case, the teams encounter major player injuries and mishaps.

Bet on the quarterfinals of the World Cup: our prediction, odds and analysis

Bet on England v Sweden: analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: England to win the match

Odds: 10/11

if England struggled to beat Colombian, they still better than Sweden. Since the beginning of the World Cup, Sweden appears to be one of the weakest team, practicing a poor football and only counting on defensive mistakes from their opponents. If they surprised everybody beating Mexico 3-0, they should be stopped by the Three Lions in the quarterfinals.

Plus, with Harry Kane striking in every games and Pickford realizing great performances behind, the Three Lions can count on players playing at their better level in this World Cup.

England have a unique chance to reach the final and face France or Brazil in a historical game, they shouldn’t let this chance pass.

Bet on France – Uruguay: analysis, odds ans predictions

Our bet: France to win the match

Odds: 1/1

France and Uruguay both prove that they are among the best nation on earth in the round of 16, beating two major teams: Portugal and Argentina.

However, Les Bleus offered one of the most impressive performance for a long time. Beating Argentine 4-3 after being leaded 2-1 was a great success. Also, Kylian Mbappe showed the world what he can do and that he will be one of the really top players in the coming years.
On the other side, Uruguay beat Portugal 2-1 with an astonishing performance from Cavani. But the Uruguayan striker is injured and will probably not play against France. That’s a very big loss for his team as he was their best player in the competition.

Regarding those elements, our prediction is for France to win the match, even though the final result should be tight.

Bet on Brazil – Belgium: analysis, odds and predictions

Our bet: Brazil to win the match

Odds: 11/10

Brazil is obviously expected to win the World Cup. Tanking into account its players and the fact that Spain and Germany are already out of the tournament, they are now on a highway to the trophy. However, they will have to deal with some of the toughest teams, starting by Belgium in the quarterfinals.

Neymar, Coutinho, Willian, T. Silva, Fernandinho… They have top players on every line.

Facing them, Belgium almost lost against Japan, who was considered as the weakest team in the round of 16. If they started their started pretty well with three victories, the Diables Rouges were much more worrying against the Japanese.

We do not think they can compete with Brazil and predict a victory of Brazil in this exciting match.

brazil v mexico world cup 2018

Bet on Russia v Croatia: analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: Croatia to win the match

Odds: 5/4

If Croatia was expected at this level of the competition, it is a huge surprise to find the Russian here. Their World Cup was already a success as they qualified for the round of 16 but beating Spain was a feat no one expected.

However, they also reach this level of the tournament because of Spain, way below the expectations. Firing their head coach two days before the beginning of the competition definitely wasn’t a great idea.

Croatia struggled to beat Denmark, but they finally succeeded thanks to their goalkeeper during the penalty. With Modric and Rakitic, they should succeed to beat Russia and reach the semifinals for the second time in their history, the second for 20 years.

 

Bet on the round of 16

Bet on England – Colombia: analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: England to win the match

Odds: 3/1

England made two good games before being defeated against Belgium. However, in this very strange game, no one really wanted to win in order to avoid meeting Brazil in the quarter finals. Now that they have what they wanted, the Three Lion have good chances to reach the semifinals if they stay focus. Also, they can count on Harry Kane, who realized tremendous performances in the group stage. He is now leading the scoreboard.

Colombia also has good players. But with James’s injury, they have seen their best players sent off the pitch. A blow for the Colombians, who now count on Falcao to save their team in this game.

We think that it won’t be enough and England should win this match, even if the result will most probably be tie.

Bet on Brazil – Mexico: analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: Brazil to win the match

Odds: 1/2

Brazil is getting stronger game after game, with Neymar being more and more seducing. With Coutinho by his sides, who was brilliant on the first three games, Neymar and Brazil are now the biggest pretender to succeed to Germany on the top of football world. Alison, the young Brazilian goalkeeper know how to keep his defense safe. Also, Thiago Silva is finally playing at his best level. In front of them, Paulinho and Casemiro secure the midfield of the Brazilian team in order to let the stars express themselves with the ball. In other words, everything’s going well for Brazil in this World Cup.

Mexico lost his last game in group stage against Sweden by 3-0. There are really few chances to see El Tri beating Brazil on this game.

Bet on Belgium – Japan : analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: Belgium to win the match

Odds: 2/5

Japan only qualified thanks to a lower amount of yellow cards compared to Senegal whereas Belgium ended first in a group with England, beating all his opponent, every time with convincing performances even though the game against England was strange. But still, Eden Hazard and his partners seem finally ready to be ready to fight with the best nations on earth.

Japan is probably the weakest team is this round of 16 and should not be a serious obstacle for the Belgian.

England made two good games before being defeated against Belgium. However, in this very strange game, no one really wanted to win in order to avoid meeting Brazil in the quarter finals. Now that they have what they wanted, the Three Lion have good chances to reach the semifinals if they stay focus. Also, they can count on Harry Kane, who realized tremendous performances in the group stage. He is now leading the scoreboard.

Colombia also has good players. But with James’s injury, they have seen their best players sent off the pitch. A blow for the Colombians, who now count on Falcao to save their team in this game. We think that it won’t be enough and England should win this match, even if the result will most probably be tie.

Bet on France – Argentina: analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: France to qualify

Odds: 4/6

Both teams reach the round of 16 but aren’t certain of their plays, their coach or their players. If France’s line-up can seem impressive, Didier Deschamp’s team didn’t succeed to accomplish a single match at a satisfying level.

Argentina performed even worst in the stage group, qualifying only thanks to a last-minute goal. Lionel Messi will have to carry his team all along on his own.

However, even if both teams fear each other, we all want to see this match as this is one of the most exciting of this World Cup so far. Both teams are pretty close and it won’t be surprising if there is a draw at the end of the 90 minutes. But regarding France’s line-up and substitutes, they should have the resources to beat this Argentinian team.

Bet on Uruguay – Portugal: analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: Uruguay to win the match

Odds: 3/1

This year, Portugal can count on a splendid Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese is near the top of the lead scorer board and, even if the last match wasn’t as convincing as the first two, there’s no doubt he will want to show the world what he can do. Facing him, a solid and strong Uruguayan team, led by Cavani and Suarez ahead and Godin in the defense.

Uruguay seems more consistent than Portugal, who made 2 draws and was enable to beat Iran to take the first place of the group.

Unfortunately, the last Ballon d’Or should be out of the World Cup pretty soon this year.

Bet on Spain – Russia: analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: England to win the match

Odds: 4/7

Even if Spain fired his head coach 2 days before the beginning of the World Cup, the team didn’t really seem affected and the players can count on Hierro and Sergio Ramos to lead the group. They even finished in the first place in the group stage. However, with two draws and one victory, players could be doubtful before entering the pitch to face Russia.

Even if they play at home, the Russian faced a hard defeat against Uruguay, losing 3-0 in front of their supporters. They show their limits after beating two weak teams as Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Spain should qualify easily for the next step, where they should face Croatia.

Bet on Croatia – Denmark: analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: Croatia to win the match

Odds: 17/20

Croatia is the team who has impressed the most football fans all over the world during the group stage. Modric and Rakitic are showing all their skills at every game and lead Croatian team at the perfection, counting also on a solid defense. Beating Argentina 3-0 was a shocking result for everybody and showed everyone how strong this team is.

The Danish ended at the second place of their group, behind France after one of the worst game of the tournament so far. Eriksen won’t be able to fight alone against the Croatian team. Modric and his fellow compatriot should go to the 1/4 finals easily.

Bet on Sweden – Switzerland: analysis, odds and prediction

Our bet: Switzerland to win the match

Odds: 17/10

It’s certainly the most unexpected round of 16 of this World Cup, as Germany has been eliminated at the group stage against all odds. Switzerland and Sweden will compete for a place in quarterfinals, which will be an amazing result for both teams.

Switzerland looks strong this year, with Xhaka and Shaqiri finally on top in a big tournament. Without Zlatan Ibrahimovitch, Sweden finally plays as a team. It is important to notice that the Swedish has kicked out of the World Cup Nederlands, Italy and now Germany!

We believe that Sweden can beat this seducing Swiss team, playing this particular football they play.

Group Players

These team groups catch the focus of all betting fans and players from the start since they form the category of best odds and betting chances to stack bigger wins.

Group A Odds:

Saudi Arabia (last): 34.00, Egypt: 7.00, Russia: 2.25 and Uruguay (first): 2.10.

Uruguay in this group has the best odds and in Bet365 these are far more lucrative. We are talking about a robust team with experienced players from past European matches and former World Cup Matches. The protagonist of the team will be Luis Suarez (playing in FC Barcelona) and Edison Cavani (Paris Saint Germain). Russia also comes as the No 2. team to win, even though they don’t have many odds to surpass Uruguay and win the group.

Group B odds:

Iran: 34.00, Morocco 17.00, Portugal: 3.00, Spain: 1.50

Despite the winner’s being obvious, we may experience a wild horse win on this group and that is Morocco. This is because the team has shown us that they have the skills to qualify for the World Cup after two decades of being eliminated and this time, their participation makes us have bigger expectations of the team as they haven’t lost a match so far, managed to win the African group of winners and who knows, maybe a Group B victory is up next. We are aware of the everlasting potential of Portugal and Spain and Morocco may surprise us here.

Group C odds:

Australia: 15.00, Peru: 11.00, Denmark: 5.5, France: 1.33

Australia is clearly the “loser” or the least likely to win in the present team group, but this doesn’t outcast their potential to challenge France. France is the most popular to secure victory at odds placed 1.33 and strong players like Kante (Chelsea), Mbappe (PSG), Tolisso (Bayern Munich), Umtiti (Barcelona), Varane (Real Madrid), and Griezmann (Atletico Madrid) to name a few. It is among the best squad teams in the globe with a roster of global famous players. Peru & Denmark follow behind France, with Peru maybe ranking in the second place. France most likely to win the group.

will france win the World Cup?

Group D Odds:

Iceland (last): 13.00, Nigeria: 11.00, Croatia: 3.25, Argentina: 1.61.

This combo is quite unique and Argentina is probably the favourite to win this and earns a place in the semi-finals of this year’s World Cup. Lionel Messi, of course, is the star of the team and with odds placed at 1.61 and this considered a lucrative range in Bet365. Let’s not neglect the potential of Iceland and maybe Nigeria, two countries with risky and robust teams. Iceland, in particular, marks the first entry in the World Cup and it is determined to score and reach as high as possible during the World Cup.  The Nigerian team also looks promising like Croatia. Argentina is still favorite to win, despite some issues with their defence.

Group E odds:

Costa Rica (last): 17.00, Serbia: 8.00, Switzerland: 6.50, Brazil 1.33 (first)

Brazil is the favourite to lead this group undoubtedly but we can’t wait to see Switzerland in action as well since they already showed a great performance over the qualification stage.  They have proved that it’s not only a wealthy nation but a country with skilled players as well. Brazil simply has to come up with an articulate plan to step up their game, though they are most likely to win anyway.

Group F Odds:

South Korea: 17.00, Sweden: 7.00, Mexico: 6.00, Germany: 1.36

This group is a no-brainer as Germany is almost sure to win–not to mention they maybe win World Cup again. Perhaps some teams that are going to make things for this team a tad tougher are Sweden, Switzerland, and Mexico which have already shown their growth. Germany’s defence & attack schemes will be backed-up fast similar to the Swedish team but nonetheless, Germany will most likely rank the top of their group.

Group “G” Odds:

Panama (last): 41.00, Tunisia: 15.00, England: 2.20, Belgium (first): 1.83.

England & Belgium are almost tied in chances to win their group and qualify to the subsequent stage, and thus we can’t make a solid prediction on who of these two will manage to win. However, we can’t ignore that Belgium’s team overall is in a more fit shape. Belgium’s weakness is that the have happed in defence, even though they are already familiar with the English style of play. The thing is, they aren’t going to easily let Panama or Tunisia surpass them. We predict that Belgium is going to win, leaving England a bit behind.

Belgium outright odds

Group H Odds:

Japan: 7.50, Senegal: 6.00, Poland: 2.87, Columbia: 2.25

This a pretty equalised group in terms of power as virtually no team on this particular group stacks against each other and we should carefully examine the strengths and weaknesses of each to draw conclusions. Nonetheless, Columbia carries the big name and reputation of South American stars like Brazil and Argentina, despite passing a somewhat challenging qualification stage. Japan and Poland may try extra hard to compete but Colombians are still tough to beat. Columbia most likely to win here.

Livebet: our top selections

Here we present you with some of the most rewarding bettings picks during the games:

Draw No Bet”: a very exciting betting pick for the ending 40 minutes of that game. The odds remained unchanged in this market–as teams remain in a tie or don’t manage to score any goals,  the level of odds will still remain rewarding and this leaves room for a bit of experimentation.

Totals: This betting category is ideal to use during the initial twenty-five minutes of a match and when a team hits 1-2 goals  (any team of the two or both). The odds will be 3.5 or 2.5 in this case and the forecasts determined at least 2 goals to be achieved if the above requirements are covered.

2X Chance: This betting category is fool-proof for teams which are predicted to take the lead in a specific match. This a form of a “Draw No Bet” though there is no cash back in case of a draw. This a pick that may confuse some players but the options to bet are not hard: “Team 1 or Draw”, “Any Team To Win” and “Team B or Draw”.

Handicap betting: The (Asian) handicaps are not among the best in this selection are they possess a higher level of risk.
