How it works
In order to win this bet, your team must reach the Semi-finals of the World Cup. Firstly, the team must finish in the top two in group stages to further advance in the tournament. The group stage will end on June 28. Then they will need to win a Round of 16 match and a Quarter final to reach the Semi-finals. The first Semi-final will be played on July 10 in Saint Petersburg and the second final will be played in Moscow on July 11.
Quick guide to betting
Form – There is a number of lead up matches that can be useful for betting on the World Cup. Teams with winning form coming into this tournament will be a smarter bet compared to a team that is struggling to win matches. So it’s a good idea to view International friendly results before the Cup starts.
Group Allocation – Before the tournament begins, it’s a good strategy to look over each group and find the teams with an easier run. In our opinion, Brazil and Germany have the best opportunity to finish first in their group. Argentina is also a darkhorse for the Semi Finals as they play in an easy group to start with.
History – Looking at the last few World Cups, the semi-final is mainly dominated by the top sides. For example, Germany has reached the semi finals in the last four World Cups. So they are a safe bet in this market. There are also opportunities for upsets. Such as Uruguay making the semi-finals in 2010 and Turkey in 2002. So in 2018 Poland, Belgium and Argentina are three teams outside the top four favourites that could be dangerous.
Other possible bets
Apart from Semi-finals betting, you also have the ability to bet on other future betting markets. This includes the quarter-finals, overall winner, each group winner and top goalscorer. These markets are available now at popular sports betting sites in Australia, such as Sportsbet and William Hill.
