With Group F being the closest thing to a Group of Death at this year’s World Cup, we expect fierce clashes to take place from the Matchday 1. Here is our World Cup 2018 Group F betting predictions.
According to online sportsbook news in Russia Group F will gladly kick off on June 17, by the defending champions Germany taking on Mexico in their starting fixture. Solid Germans are of course the hot favourites to win this match, and to finish at the summit. On the following day, Sweden and South Korea will effectively fight for potential second-place behind Germany. According to our World Cup 2018 Group F betting predictions, Sweden look in a much better shape to see it through and collect the precious three points.
World Cup 2018 Group F Betting Predictions: Germany v Mexico
Although many online sportsbooks in Russia predict this match to be Germany’s hardest game in group-stage, it is difficult to see Mexico having a chance to cause a serious upset. Before Mexico’s seventh consecutive World Cup participation, they have lost 2-0 to Denmark in a recent friendly, which gives quite a strong sign that they are not on a level to threaten top teams.
German squad for Russia looks very similar to the one, which lifted the trophy four years ago in Brazil. During the qualifications, Germans recorded a perfect record of ten wins. No doubt with such strong talent the Mannschaft will score a winner with (1.520) odds, according to Pinnacle Sports. The odds for a draw are (4.350), and (7.500) for a win for Mexico.
Sweden v South Korea (Monday, June 18)
Sweden and South Korea will enter this match knowing that a loss will practically end their chances of progressing to the round 16. Therefore, in our World Cup 2018 Group F betting predictions, we expect it to be a tight match. Thus, ultimately Sweden will have their final say on the three points. They have shown to be highly motivated to fight in the finals, after dominating Netherlands and Italy during the qualifications.
On the other hand, South Korea have not had great results leading up to the tournament. They look like the weakest team in their group, so it is safer to go for Sweden to edge this one. At Pinnacle Sports, Sweden are the favourites with (2.090) odds, a draw (3.300), and (4.170) odds for South Korea to win the match.
