Big Bets Being Placed on 2nd Round World Cup Matches

July 2, 2018 July 2, 2018 David Nugent

Having seen plenty of short odds-on favourites losing their matches in both the Group Stages and the last few 2nd round matches that have been played, many punters have decided their best chances of winning big are to forget betting on the favourites to win the next second round matches, and instead back the outsider to win those matches!

As such many betting sites are reporting some huge amounts of cash being played on the teams that are not expected to win their second round matches, and that may be something that you are going to be doing too.

If so then I think its best that I give you some pointers as to which of the four second found group matches that are being played today and tomorrow and let you know what odds are available on the three possible outcomes of each of those games too.

The first match which is kicking off this afternoon is of course the Brazil vs Mexico match, and Mexico are on offer at 7/1 to win that match with Brazil being the favourite to win it at odds of 1/2, and the draw if you think it will end in a draw after 90 minutes can be had at odds of 16/5.

Can Japan Beat Belgium?

Later on this evening many outsider backers will be hoping and praying that Japan can win their match against Belgium even though the odds of them doing so are stacked against them, but anything could happen in that match, so let’s not forget that!

As to the odds you are going to be able to secure and make use of in that match it is Belgium who are the favourites to win it at 4/11, the draw is available at most betting site at odds of around the 4/1 mark and if you want Japan to win you will not be disappointed with the odds of 9/1 you can get on them doing so!

Tomorrows Second Round Matches

If you fancy backing some outsiders to win their second round matches in the World Cup over in Russia tomorrow then you have two matches to pick from!

Regarding the first match that will be playing off tomorrow it is Sweden that are the ever so slight outsiders to win their match against Switzerland, and the odds on that match after 90 minutes of play is 21/10 on a Sweden win, 2/1 on the match ending in a draw and you can get odds of 17/10 on Switzerland winning it.

The Colombia vs England match is another interesting match being played tomorrow and if you do fancy the chances of the outsiders that being Colombia to win this match they are the outsiders and their odds re 3/1, the draw odds are 23/10 and if you think that England are going to win the match, which many people are convinced that they will do their odds of winning it are 11/10.
