2018 World Cup Predictions

All the debates are now taking place around the world as everyone turns into a soccer pundit. Many are looking at making money off the bookies to soften the blow of watching their favourites get beaten by one of the unfancied countries.

It can be worthwhile placing your bets for this year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia before it kicks off, as the odds are higher. With all the 32 squads being named on 1st June, the date of this article being written, now is the time to check the fixture schedules and see who will progress to the later stages.

If you don’t know how to go about placingĀ World cup bets online, then there are a whole host of sites out there giving you that information. One thing you will need though is an account with one or more online betting companies. The vast majority, if not all of them now, will offer you incentives to sign up with them usually by way of them matching your first bet up to a maximum value; this will be offered as ‘free bets’ and is definitely a good way to start.

You’ll then be asked to deposit funds to your account by using a credit or debit card, and the bets you place are obviously taken from this deposit, After your first bet is finished, you will be credited with the amount of that bet as per your sign up offer. This can then be used in future bets, either immediately or another day.

Using the 2018 World Cup as a topical example, you can just place a simple bet on the outright winner or you can go into much finer detail, such as who you think will qualify for the quarter finals, in which game will the first red card be shown and so on. For those more detailed bets, you need to keep up to date with as much information you can with regard to player suspensions and injuries as they will weaken teams as the tournament progresses.
