2018 World Cup Tips - 3 best bets for the World Cup

  • 2018 World Cup Betting Tips
  • Can the Socceroos win a game? 
  • Who will make the final? 

There is no bigger competition in soccer than the World Cup and the 2018 instalment is set to take place in Russia between June 14 and July 15, with 32 national teams from across the globe aiming to lift the famous trophy.

We preview the 2018 World Cup and give our best bets for the tournament. 

World Cup Winner 


Germany is the second most successful team with their 4 World Cup trophies, and we believe they can make it five in 2018. The Germans dominated the European qualifiers and were the only team to go 10-0-0. They looked a cut above the rest, with an incredible +39 goal differential after ten matches. The Germans have been a model of consistency in recent World Cups. They have made it to the semi-finals in every World Cup since 2002, including winning the title in 2014 against Argentina. Germany is looking to become the first team to win back-to-back World Cups since Brazil won twice in a row in 1958 and 1962. With their consistent performances on the biggest stage, there is no reason to suggest the can’t repeat their 2014 performance. This German squad has performed so well since Joachim Low took over in 2006. They average 2.49 goals per game and concede only 0.95 per game with him in charge. At almost 6/1, I’m happy to be with Germany to win the 2018 World Cup.

To Reach The Final 


I’m siding with Germany to win the World Cup, however, because Brazil does look a serious threat, I’m also backing the Germans to make the final. They have reached the final in six of the last 11 World Cups and have reached the semi-finals in seven of the last nine World Cups. The Germans only have to deal with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in the group stage before the knockout stage begins. With the likes of Timo Werner, Thomas Muller, Toni Kross and Ilkay Gundogan, this German team looks extremely likely to find themselves in the final of the 2018 World Cup.

Will The Socceroos Win A Game?


I take absolutely no pleasure in saying this, but Australia looks very hard pressed in Group C, against France, Denmark and Peru. Australia didn’t look convincing in World Cup qualifying, defeating Syria 3-2 on aggregate after extra time, before defeating Honduras 3-1 thanks to a hatrick from Mile Jedinak which punched Australia's ticket to the 2018 World Cup. The Aussies haven’t had much luck with Group pairings since their cinderella run to the last 16 in 2006. In 2014 the Socceroos were drawn with Spain, Chile and the Netherlands. The Socceroos are still led by veteran Tim Cahill, who is now 38-years-old. Other players to watch include Mile Jedinak and Aaron Mooy. The Aussies play France first-up, a powerhouse team who are third-favourites for the World Cup title behind Germany and Brazil. Our two chances at possibly winning a game are against Denmark and Peru who both look stronger on paper. We haven’t won a game in the World Cup since 2010 and I expect that to continue in 2018.
