Odds for penalties at the 2018 World Cup
The World Cup will feature a number players notorious for their violent or reckless behaviour on the pitch. Just think of Diego Costa, aka the ‘Butcher’ (Spain). Or Pepe (Portugal).

Odds for England coach Gareth Southgate to be fired after the 2018 World Cup
The Three Lions are in a group with Panama, Tunisia and Belgium. Seems like a piece of cake, but we are talking about a team that got knocked out by Iceland at the Euro 2016. Or scored one miserable single point in the previous World Cup. Weird football bets worry about the future of managers as well. Will Gareth Southgate’s young team be a total disaster? If yes, it’s all over for Gareth Southgate. Check out the odds on England reach the round of 16 on 1xBet Sportsbook.
Weird World Cup bets: Will Luis Suarez bite again?
Suarez bit in 2010. Then in 2013. At the 2014 World Cup, it seemed that the Uruguay striker had learned his lesson and calmed down. Bookmakers even offered 175 to 1 if he was to bite again. Then he bit Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini, earning a small fortune for over 150 bettors who trusted his unconventional way of earning respect on the field. If you are not sure if The Vampire will bite again, check out the odds on 1xBet Sportsbook for Uruguay to qualify from their group.
