World Cup 2018 Betting Predictions

While we await kick off on Wednesday for the England v Croatia World Cup qualifier, there are some interesting Special Bets around which may take a punter’s fancy. England have won every game in the qualifying group so far, and who is to say that they cannot complete the full task, by being victorious in each of their remaining three games. Certainly a victory is needed on Wednesday, but once qualification is assured, who knows which England will turn up for the remaining two matches.

However, if you fancy a bet on England keeping up their form, or failing, come to that, here’s where to look, visit SkyBet for all of these odds.
England to remain Undefeated – 4/9
England to win every match in the group – 2/1
First Defeat to Ukraine – 13/5
First Defeat to Croatia – 4/1
First Defeat to Belarus – 25/1

England striker Wayne Rooney has been banging the goals in during qualifying (in fact he’s netted eight goals in the last 10 England matches) and should have had a hat trick in the friendly against Slovenia on Saturday. His eight goals realistically should be added to in the next three games, but will the misses on Saturday have dented his finishing touch? Will Jermain Defoe continue to steal the goal scoring headlines?

For a bet on Rooney’s qualifying goals total, head to SkyBet again…
Rooney under 9.5 goals at 1/3
Rooney over 9.5 goals at 9/4

Who will make the England World Cup Squad?
There are some no-brainers in this market, all barring injury, the likes of Beckham, Defoe and Rob Green are going to be in South Africa. However, there are a lot of players scrambling for places, and that gives the chance to pick up a small bet here and there. Check out the squads for the previous few games and you should have a good idea of who Capello is favouring. Of course there is an entire domestic season to get through between now and then, but some of these names should be worth a punt. Here are some of the more interesting prices to be taken right now.

The Republic of Ireland find themselves in a similar position. They are scrapping it out with Italy for top spot, but do have a little breathing space between themselves and third placed Bulgaria.

In what would be one of the greatest escape acts of all time, Scotland have taken their qualifcation hopes down to their last game. Unfortunately it is against a strong Dutch side in a game they have to win, but the Scots have a home crowd and plenty of heart to do what they need to do. They also need to rely on other group results though.
Scotland to qualify for World Cup 2010?
No – 1/4 at PaddyPower
Yes – 4/1 at Boylesports
