World Cup 2018 Betting Thread

Scrap this if there’s already one set up.

The top goal scorer one is intriguing. You’re generally looking at the group stage here, a weak group where a team can be hockeyed and a reasonable last 16 game can give you 5 matches for a player to do the business.

Group A and Group G are certainly the weakest with Saudi Arabia in Group A as the whipping boys and Russia and Egypt could cough up a few also. Group G has Panama and Tuinisia.

Uruguay and Belgium look to have a good shout at the quarter finals so I’d be looking at Lukaku and Cavani/Suarez here.

Players I will back will be

Lukaku - 19/1
Suarez 28/1
Cavani 31/1
Falcao 70/1
Mertens 84/1

Mertens?

Talk us through this please.


#3

Belgium have a nice path, they’re likely to top their group with Panama, Tunisia and England and should have enough to overcome the likes of Senegal/Poland/Japan in the last 16.

Mertens himself has been in tremendous form at club level over the past two seasons bagging 56 goals.

What role he will play for Belgium is the biggest question mark but I think Belgium’s nice path through to the QF combined with his goal scoring potential make him a value bet at 84/1.


#4

Interesting, who are top prices here? He’s 50/1 with Bet365


#5

You can get him at 84/1 on Betfair Exchange.


#6

I’m considering laying Germany to get out of their group at very short odds.

They seem to be in a bit of disarray at the minute.


#7

Ahmed Heghazi to be Egypt’s top goalscorer
66/1


#8

Sisto Denmark top scorer 14/1
Di Maria Argentina top scorer 14/1
Savic Serbia top scorer 12/1

Three bets I’ve had and a little trixie on them.


#9

Russia to make quarter finals 12/5

Russia to make semis 7/1

Vlad will see it home.


#10

very short odds?


#11

Correct.


#12

Jesus to be top goalscorer from the Prem - 50/1


#13

how short. you can lay them at 1.3 on matchbook to not win the group.

that’s a horrendously stupid lay. sweden south korea and mexico… sure mexico are fucked themselves, literally, and the other two are shit.

the Germans could field a team of Turks and beat the pick of them


#14

The Germans are not in good form.

I’ll be laying them at 1.08 to get out of their group.

I think it’s a tough group and their recent form is not impressive.


#15

unbeaten in competitive matches since the euro semi finals. won all their qualifying games handsomely and won the confederations cup. friendlys don’t matter a fuck to the Germans.

They’ll perform, they’re Germany. Semi finals at least.

Save your money pal. You’ll be cleaned


#16

I trust my track record.

I’ll try and make myself some money.


#17

Terrible odds


#18

With who?


#19

Fuck that’s a great bet, some odds


#20

Where did you see this, kid? That’s a ridiculous price.
