July 9, 2018 July 9, 2018 David Nugent

You do have enough time to place bets and wagers on this year’s World Cup Semi Finals, but I would urge you to think long and hard regarding just which bets you do place, as there have been plenty of unexpected results so far in this soccer tournament!

Many sports bettors that tend to pick just the favourites to back and bet on in sporting event such as soccer matches will have been stung quite badly financially so far in the FIFA World Cup, so always consider backing a team that may not initially appear to have a chance of winning any match!

There are of course just four teams left in the World Cup and those teams are going to be playing their Semi Final matches on the 10th and 11th of July, the first one being the match between France and Belgium

France are the favourites to win that match at odds of 6/4 and Belgium can be bet on at odds of 21/10 the draw after ninety minutes of play is also available at odds of 11/5 too, and all online and mobile betting site will be offering you a plethora of additional betting opportunities on the France vs Belgium match too of course.

Croatia vs England Match

It will be on Wednesday of this week that we will get to learn whether it will be Croatia or England that will be making their way through to the final game, and from a betting point of view it is England who is the favourites to do just that.

You are going to find odds available on an England win or 11/8 at most betting sites, however my advice as always is to shop around as different betting site will be offering you different betting odds of course. The odds on a draw after 90 minutes of play are 11/5 on that match and the odds on offer to punters on Croatia winning that match are quite high actually at 12/5.

To Win the World Cup

Another range of betting opportunities exist on this year’s World Cup and you may fancy instead of backing one team to win either of the two above Semi Final matches, prefer backing a team that you think will win the World Cup outright.

If that is a betting markets you fancy making use of then you are not going to find odds much higher than 2/1 on France winning the World Cup this year as they are not the favourites to do so.

England are currently the second favourite team to win the World Cup this year and their odds of doing so are 5/2, if you fancy the chances of Belgium they are 11/4 and the current outsiders to win the World Cup in Russia in 2018 are Croatia at 4/1.
