WORLD CUP BETTING: GROUP STAGE

GROUP A

There will be plenty of pressure on host nation Russia to stick around as long as possible at the World Cup, and although they are unlikely to go all the way the bookmakers do expect them to advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. It will not be easy though, with a talented Uruguay side and 2017 Africa Cup of Nations runners-up Egypt also in Group A.

GROUP B

Spain's dominance over international football was brought to an end at the 2014 World Cup, but the bookmakers consider them one of the leading contenders to regain the crown of world champions in Russia. They are firmly expected to advance from Group B alongside reigning European champions Portugal.

GROUP C

France came up short in their quest to win the European Championship on home soil two years ago, but the bookmakers believe they have a serious chance of becoming world champions this summer. Les Bleus are clear favourites to advance from Group C, with Denmark expected to follow them by fending off the challenge of Peru and Australia.

GROUP D

Argentina scraped into the World Cup thanks to the heroics of Lionel Messi and the bookmakers are expecting them to at least make the knockout stage despite an underwhelming showing in qualifying. Croatia are expected to follow the Argentinians out of a group that also includes Nigeria and an Iceland team that enjoyed a good run at the Euros in 2016, ousting England along the way.

GROUP E

It has been 16 years since Brazil last won the World Cup, but if the bookmakers are right Neymar & Co. will end that drought in Russia. The Brazilians are clear favourites to emerge from Group E this summer, and the bookmakers expect a two-horse race between Switzerland and Serbia to determine who who follows them into the last-16.

GROUP F

Germany go into the tournament as the defending world champions thanks to their success in Brazil four years ago, and they are deservedly one of the favourites after a dominant group campaign that saw them win all 10 of their games while out-scoring the opposition 43-4. Unsurprisingly they are odds-on to win Group F this summer, with Mexico and Sweden expected to battle for the runners-up spot.

GROUP G

England cruised into the World Cup in comfortable but unspectacular fashion - the question is how will they fare amongst the big boys in Russia? The Three Lions performed miserable at the World Cup four years ago, crashing out at the group stage, but the bookmakers do not expect Gareth Southgate's side to experience the same humiliation this time around. England are second favourites to win the group behind Belgium, with Tunisia and Panama expected to make a swift exit.

GROUP H

Group H will not be provide the winner of this summer's World Cup, but one look at the odds suggests this is the most wide-open of all the groups. Colombia and Poland are considered the two favourites to advance to the last-16 in Russia, but the bookies are not ruling out Senegal and Japan at this time, so any slip-ups here could prove to be costly.

World Cup Betting Tips Guide: How to bet on Russia 2018

Another World Cup year is here and there are a whole host of ways in which you can bet on Russia 2018, both before the tournament and as it unfolds.

The 2018 World Cup gets underway on Thursday, June 14 and ends on Sunday, July 15, and not only can you bet on every single match that takes place in Russia, you can also bet on a number of outright betting markets ranging from the winner of the tournament itself.

Here is a guide to our favourite betting markets, which we will be using regularly when offering our World Cup betting tips…

Outright World Cup Betting Markets

World Cup Winner

The name of this market says it all – you are simply betting on who will be crowned world champions at the end of the final on Sunday, July 15. The usual suspects are at the head of the betting, but that does not mean you cannot make a healthy profit by successfully backing one of them because the bookmakers do not tend to go short with their odds prior to the tournament. For example, at the time of writing current world champions Germany were being priced up as 5/1 joint favourites alongside five-time winners Brazil, while Lionel Messi’s Argentina were available at a price as big as 9/1. So no matter who you back, a tidy profit is on the cards if you successfully predict the winner before the tournament unfolds. And if you want to wait and see how teams perform in Russia you can because this tournament will be available up until the final itself. However, the odds for the leaders will undoubtedly shorten as the action unfolds. 

Name The Finalists

Perhaps you cannot decide between two teams – so why not back them both to reach the final instead? The ‘Name The Finalists’ betting market is simple, you bet on which two teams will go head-to-head for the World Cup Trophy at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 15. This market offers an opportunity to make a very healthy profit because there is added risk in you needing two teams to reach the final for this to be a winning bet. But if you back a winner, you will give your account a healthy shot in the arm. Even the shortest priced final, Germany v Brazil, is as big as 12/1 at the time of writing. But of course, once the tournament is underway these odds are likely to shorten.

To Reach Final

This World Cup betting market is very similar to the ‘Name The Finalists’ one, but in this instance you only need to select one team to be in action in Moscow on Sunday, July 15. Fancy Germany to go all the way to the final but not completely convinced they will lift the trophy for the second straight tournament? If so then this is market for you. However, the odds in this market are a good deal shorter than those available in the ‘Name The Finalists’ because there is less risk. They are backable though, but just like the two markets I mentioned before they will get shorter as the tournament unfolds.

Group Winner

The first three markets I have discussed will not lead to a pay-out until the very end of the tournament, but if you want to bet on an outright market that pays out before July 15 then the ‘Group Winner’ one is the World Cup betting market for you. It is simple – just pick a group you wish to bet on and back a team to finish top of the table after all three rounds of fixtures have been played. However, if you are looking to make a profit betting on this market you may have to be selective in which groups you bet on because some will have clear favourites and others will be a lot more competitive. For example, Germany are 20/21 favourites to win their group at the time of writing, but over in Group G you can get 10/11 on Belgium to win the group and 6/5 on England to win it.

Top Goalscorer

Again, this is another very simple betting market – you are betting on which player will score the most goals at this tournament. Of all the World Cup betting markets available for Russia 2018, this is one in which you could make a large profit because the big-name strikers have not tended to win the Golden Boot in recent years. In fact, the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar have never managed to be the top goalscorer at a World Cup and that is why their prices in this market range from 10/1 to 14/1 at the time of writing. Germany midfielder Thomas Muller scooped the award for his five-goal haul in 2010 and Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez took the honours four years later with his six-goal showing in Brazil, so if you successfully back a dark horse to be the World Cup’s Top Goalscorer you could be celebrating a major windfall at the end of the tournament.

World Cup Match Betting Markets

Winner

Football betting markets do not come much more simpler than this one – you are simply backing a team to win the game or for the match to end in a draw. This market will be available for every match during the World Cup, but it goes without saying that sometimes it will not offer the most appealing odds. The best chance of making a decent profit in this market comes from what the bookmakers perceive to be a very competitive market – for example, Germany v France or Brazil v Argentina. If a match looks to be one sided then there will be one clear favourite and that team’s odds will not be appealing.

Handicap

The handicap market is very similar to the ‘Winner’ market, but in this instance you are backing a team to overcome a fictional handicap. For example, Uruguay are 3/10 to beat Saudi Arabia on June 20, but that price offers very little in the way of appeal. However, you can still back the Uruguayans to win the match, at a better price, thanks to the handicap market. In this instance, Uruguay -2 to win the match is available at 11/4. So what does the -2 mean? It means Saudi Arabia will start the game with a fictional 2-0 lead and Uruguay must win by three goals in order to erase the deficit and win the match, landing you a winning bet. On the opposite side, you may believe Uruguay will win by a single goal so you could go Saudi Arabia +2, which is available at Even money. That means if Uruguay win the match 1-0 on the field, Saudi Arabia will actually be 2-1 winners in terms of your bet once the two-goal handicap is applied.

Half-Time/Full-Time

Another way to back a team to win at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market is to dive into the Half-time/Full-time market. This market requires you to bet on who you think will be winning at half-time and full-time in the match. So for example, you may believe England and Belgium will be drawing at half-time but fancy England to be in front at full-time. Therefore the selection you would make would be Draw/England, which is currently available at 6/1. This market can offer a great way to make a healthy profit because you need two things to happen for it to be a winner.

Winning Margin

Winning margin is another way to back a team at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ betting market – and just like the previous markets I have mentioned this is straightforward. You are merely betting on how many goals a team will win by – Germany to win by 1 goal, Germany to win by 2 goals, Germany to win by 3 goals more etc. So instead of backing Germany to beat South Korea at 1/4, which is hardly tempting, you may fancy them run out comfortable winners by two goals. Backing Germany to win by 2 goals in this instance would give the world champions’ odds of winning match much more appeal at 11/4.

Total Goals

The outcome of the match does not matter as far as this betting market is confirmed – you are merely betting on how many goals will be scored in total. So for example, if you are expecting to see at least two goals you could back Over 1.5 Total Goals, or you may expect to see three or less so you would select Under 3.5 Total Goals. The prices in this market will obviously vary from match to match, so while it may offer a tempting price in one World Cup game it may not be particularly appealing in another.

Both Teams To Score

Just like ‘Total Goals’, this football betting market is not affected by the outcome of a match. When betting on this market you simply need both teams involved in the game to find the back of the net – it does not matter how many times they both score, each team just needs to score at least once. Of course, just like ‘Total Goals’ the appeal of this market will vary from match to match. For example, the odds on both teams scoring will be bigger if one team has a rock-solid defence that rarely concedes, while the price will be short if the match is features to two teams with leaky rearguards.

Match Result & Both Teams To Score

This market combines two of the previous markets I have mentioned – Winner and Both Teams To Score. It is straightforward though and it does offer another opportunity to back a match outcome at a bigger price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market. In this instance, all you are doing is betting on the outcome of the match and whether or not both teams will score. So for example, you may expect odds-on favourites Uruguay to beat Egypt on June 15 but want a bigger price than 8/11. By going into this market you can get a price as big as 3/1 on Uruguay to win & both teams to score. For this bet to win you just need Egypt to score in a losing effort. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of both teams scoring.

Match Result & Over/Under Total Goals

This is very similar to the last market I wrote about, but instead of backing both teams to score you are simply betting on who will win and how many goals will be scored in the match. For example, when France face Australia on June 16 you may be expecting Les Bleus to win a match that sees at least three goals. Therefore you would back France/Over 2.5 in this market at odds of 21/10. It does not matter if France win 3-0, 2-1 of 10-0 – as long as they are victorious and three total goals are scored then your bet would be a winner. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of goals being scored in the match. 

First Goalscorer

First Goalscorer betting remains one of the most popular forms of betting when it comes to football matches. This market will be available for every single World Cup match and it offers a great opportunity to make a healthy profit because you are simple betting on who will break the deadlock with the game’s first goal. With 20 outfield players on the pitch when the match gets underway, there are plenty of players to choose from and that means even the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will be available at backable prices. But perhaps you like the look of a goal-scoring midfielder – his odds could be rather sizeable and if he does break the deadlock you will enjoy a very tidy return.

Anytime Goalscorer

Odds in this market are shorter than the First Goalscorer market because you are merely betting on a player to score in the match. It does not matter if he nets first, second, third or last – as long as he finds the back of the net your bet will be a winner. Big name players are usually at short odds in this market, so you often have to be a little creative when picking out a goalscorer. Perhaps one team is excellent at set-pieces, bringing a defender into play in this market at a big price? Or perhaps a side has a midfielder with a knack for ghosting into the box and grabbing a goal here and there? This market can offer good rewards when you successfully back a player that is not exactly prolific in front of goal.
