World Cup Betting Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm waiting for the usual make a pre tournament bet on winner/top scorer offer.

Not had a real look about but I'm hoping for another over x tournament goals one as that was quite lucrative in the euros

Think Neymar will be my main bet for top scorer. Salah at 40/1 is worth a bet as an outsider.

Liking WH's offers

Quote

 

Bet £10 on a team to win the World Cup and get a £5 free bet every time that team wins a game in the World Cup

Bet a total of £10/£5 Each Way or currency equivalent or more on the World Cup Outright, and receive a £5 or currency equivalent free bet every time your team wins in 90 minutes.

Bet £10 on a player to be the Top Goalscorer at the World Cup and get a £5 free bet every time that player scores a goal during the Tournament.

Bet a total of £10/£5 Each Way or currency equivalent or more on the World Cup 2018 - Top Goalscorer market, and receive a £5 or currency equivalent free bet every time that player scores at the World Cup excluding penalties shoot-outs.

 

I'd typically be a smart ass with the golden boot but on that offer Neymar and Jesus are tempting at lower odds.

Pulled the trigger on Giroud e/w and boosted it to 44/1

Now that is a proper gamble as Deschamps probably doesn't know who his starting strikers are and it is either Giroud/Griezmann or Giroud on his own or Mbappe and his own.

Even coming off the bench, Giroud is the type who can score goals. With the group France have, it's a solid bet.

Backed Salah around a month ago for top scorer at 60s

Could have done without Ramos putting him in the crippler crossface last night obviously

I just saw my emails and came to post that, both fantastic offers that I'll definitely be taking advantage of!

I'm yet to look at the group's properly but Germany as winners and Neymar as top scorer both sound like bets that can win outright and should return a decent amount in free bets as well.

Also like look of Cavani/Suarez at 26s and Muller at 34s.

Latter seems a bit off pricewise for Bet365, certainly wouldn’t expect him to offer such good e/w value given his record at world cups

Sky bet are doing a free hit on overall winner. Max £10 but you get it back as a free bet if it loses.

With the group they have Suarez sounds decent to me at 25/1. I know his best days are behind him but he could easily get 4/5 in that group.

I can personally vouch for this being a really worthwhile investment - well over 500 hours have gone into this. I think on my own I'm very close to triple figures. A lot of hard work from @paz, myself and our 3rd editor Kieran. Along with a team of contributors, and an army of proof readers.

 

Please share the link far and wide and dig deep to donate and enjoy the magazine everyone :)

Can't be long now. Not sure it will be as many words as the 40,000 word preview that we've put together at www.justgiving.com/savethepunter

Pretty sure I donated a week or two ago, should I have received the preview or is it not quite released yet. 

 

Saw it got a retweet from matt le Tissier earlier! Good going!

One bet I absolutely love is Panama to score zero goals at 6.50.

What bookie is this?  Can only see 9/2 but I like 11/2 too.

Outright winners don't have much value

 

Argentina at 9/1 or 10/1 seems to be the best value.

I would be leaving Argentina well alone in this tournament. Personally think they have a chance of even getting knocked out in the group stage.

3 managers, 48 players during qualification, scraped in on the last day thanks to Messi heroics. Battered by Spain in March 6-1 with an almost full strength side.

both good for preparation. I have found out the Racing Post with the world cup supplement is out on Thursday. So it'll be savethepunter vs the racing post world cup supplement for tips!

Agree with RFM here Argentina are far far too short for me. Outside of the frontline they lack quality.

The SkyBet RABs for the world cup offers up some interesting bets. I have backed Uruguay, France, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Belgium, England and Colombia each to score 4+ group goals at 5/1 for some interest whenever one of these scores.

Iran, Saudi Arabia, Panama all to finish 4th in their group 3/1 looks good.

I'm also contemplating Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Spain and Portugal to score 5+ goals across the tournament at 4.33 - little unsure on Portugal so waiting to find something better. If anyone sees any other good goal bets please let me know as these entertain me.

SkyBet gave a random 2 quid free bet, so I've stuck it on Brazil, France, Germany and Spain to win all their group games at 66/1 for a laugh

I've used Skybets offer to back Argentina @ 9/1, I've then used the two William Hill offers on Spain to win and Lukaku as top scorer, expecting both of those to give a few free bets and both have a decent shot at winning as well I reckon.

Are there any more worthwhile pre tournament offers around?

There’s a disappoint lack of offer, the only really good one is WH and the only other promos I’ve seen are predictions to win money.

Added Brazil/Spain final 18/1 to my locker

I've got a feeling that's it for decent offers the only ones that will come out now will be ones to sucker in new customers.

I really fancy Giroud @ 40s. Relatively easy group, just a bit worried he might not start.

Not as good an offer but Paddy power are doing place £10 on top goalscorer and receive a £2 free bet for each goal scored, I won't be doing it but I suppose it may be useful for some.

Gone with Spain with the Skybet offer off money back as a free bet , and put money on Neymar, Cavani, Suarez e/w top scorer as well. Put a little bit on Mane as well as my outsider. Might have a look through and see if there's any other long shots that I like the look of.

Scored a hat-trick last night, and has been in form for months. I think that's a solid punt :thup:

Skybet boosted France top tournament scorers to 8.5 which is tempting me. Were top scorers at Euro 2016 and can see them grabbing 6-8 in their group, then dependent on how the groups games go should have a decent shot at that title. Main fear would be Brazil, outside of them I think they'll likely outscore everyone else.

Betway have up to £30 in free bets available across this WC

There is 48 group matches, on average, 0-0 occurs about one in seven times. We should see roughly 6 or 7 0-0's. 1000/1 sounds probably about right, although a great bet for a quid just to have a rooting interest in every match till there's a 0-0!

Odds on the final one don't look great but from a glance I like the rest.

I'll take approval on 5 out of 6 :brock: assuming you mean the Brazil/Spain one I wouldn't be recommending that to anyone, just a hunch with a spare fiver in the account. There was another couple I forgot I'd put down as well, has just dawned on me how much I've gone overboard in excitement for this :D but not playing with massive stakes over here so all good for entertainment purposes.

Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Croatia, France, Germany, Spain and Uruguay all to qualify from their groups 10/3

Korea Republic, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Peru, Senegal, Serbia, Switzerland Uruguay to score 2+ goals each 6/1

 

Korea (and potentially Morocco?) iffy on the last but as it was only a free tenner I'm happy enough with only needing 2+ at the odds, more interest for some smaller sides.
