Betting Picks For The World Cup, Midway Stage
If you head to the sportsbook of a real money casino USA, looking to place some bets on the World Cup winner, you are going to see some very different odds than you would have found at the beginning. We have just one group stage game left and such have been the results so far, we’ve seen quite a lot of movement.
This is the biggest betting event in the world and we know how much you guys have been loving the action so far. Those who usually play casino games or ace pokies online have been making the change, and here are some picks for all of you at this midway stage.
England To Win
England was relatively short going into this tournament, at around 4/1. After a convincing 6-2 performance against Iran in the first game, these odds shortened even more. Despite this, however, England was terrible in the next game against the USA, and that has pushed things back somewhat. Currently, England is 10/1 and we think there could be some good value there. Teams struggle from time to time at a World Cup, but class is permanent and this is a very good England side.
Spain For The Win
If you don’t fancy England at 10/1 then another good option could be 7/1 Spain. The 2010 World Cup winners have been in fine form and looking scintillating in the 7-0 thrashing of Costa Rica. Spain also looked very good against a desperate Germany this week, although did learn lessons about game management in that match-up. If Spain can learn those lessons then 7/1 looks like great value. The Spanish also have a great potential to run to the semi-finals, making them a tasty bet for those looking to chance their arm.
Croatia to Reach Semis
Croatia has been playing very well so far and despite many worrying about an aging side, they have shown that they have plenty of youth in that national team. The Croats are so far unbeaten in the group stage and we fancy that the side could certainly make it as far as the semi-finals, just like they did in 2018. They are currently 14/1 to reach this stage, which is a great price for those who fancy a flutter.
As many expected, the top scorer odds have drastically changed since the opening day of the World Cup. Whilst some names usually stay at the top, many will fall away and that is what we have seen so far. Kylian Mbappe is still a favorite for this, having scored 3 goals already, and France looking very good indeed. We however think that second favorite Lionel Messi may be the man who completes this incredible individual goal. Messi has scored 2 already and Argentina looks hungry to reach the latter stages of the tournament. Given that Mbappe isn’t offering much value at 5/2, the Argentine maestro is a much better bet at 9/1.
How do you see things panning out for the rest of the tournament?
