One of the most important questions of Group C in the World Cup Qualifications is whether or not the Czech Republic will qualify for World Cup 2018?
One of the most obvious opinions of online betting news in Czech Republic is that the national team has no chances of winning Group C in World Cup 2018 Qualifications. Unfortunately for them, they are drawn together with World Cup 2014 holder Germany, who are not only the biggest favourites of the group, but they are also among the top favourites to win the most prestigious football tournament in 2018.
Betting on the Nationalelf could be your safe bet
If one wants to bet on Germany to win Group C, one shall not hope for too much money to win. The odds are quite low for this market as not only Germany has been the biggest favourite from the very beginning, but they are performing as real winners after 4 qualification games: they won all their games, already have a 5 point advantage over the second placed and are sure to win Group C.
Nobody even managed to score one single goal against them, while they have hit the net on 16 occasions so far. Germany’s odds to win the group are 1.02 (1/50) at Bet365, but their World Cup 2018 outright odds are quite good as well. In addition, online sportsbooks also expect them to do well in Russia: the odds for Germany to win World Cup are 6.50 (11/2) at Betway. Betting on Germany is the safest bet one could make as apparently online betting sites believe they are the strongest national team as of today.
It’s gonna be a tough job for Czech Republic to qualify for World Cup 2018
As mentioned above, Czech Republic is drawn together with the same qualification group as Germany. It gave them a huge handicap from the very beginning, at least in regards of their chances to qualify for World Cup 2018. Based on the names, in the very beginning, they have been regarded as the number 2 favourites for Group C. However, that’s not how things have been going on lately for the Czech.
As of today, the Czech Republic, surprising every single one of the online sportsbooks in Czech Republic, is standing only in the 4th position. They have advantage ahead of Norway and San Marino. Both Azerbaijan and Northern Ireland have been better than them so far and the Czech have collected a 2 point disadvantage in only 4 games. In fact, they’ll need to avoid humiliating defeats like this if they aim for second position and World Cup Qualification:
However, they still have a lot of time to get better results and most betting sites expect them to do so: while Coral Sportsbook gives 3.50 (5/2) odds for Northern Ireland to qualify for World Cup, but other sites are of different opinion: BetVictor believes that Czech Republic will end up in the top 2 next to Germany. Their odds for that are 2.38 (11/8). Should they win the group ahead of Germany, which is not very likely but as we know: impossible is nothing, bettors could gain 15.00 (14/1) times their stake.
