Quick guide to betting
Group Allocation – A major factor in reaching the final is finishing first in the Group stage. This means a team will face easier opposition in the next round of the Cup. So in 2018, Germany and Brazil have an easier run compared to Spain as they play Portugal in the group stages. France also has a very tough group stage against two sides ranked inside the top 12 in the World (Peru, Denmark).
History – Generally in the history of the World Cup, it is very rare for a team ranked outside of the top 10 to reach the final. That’s why the likes of Brazil, Germany, France and Spain are expected to reach the final in 2018.
Injuries – Injuries can hurt any Soccer team and it’s even more important to watch in the World Cup. Teams with more injuries will struggle for form and consistency, therefore it’s best to avoid these sides.
Other possible bets
Apart from betting on the final, you can also bet on future markets for the Quarter-finals and Semi-finals. There is also better odds for the overall winner compared to the reach final betting markets. In addition, the top goalscorer betting market is another popular option for sports betting on the Cup.
