World Cup 2018 Betting Predictions

France can deliver a hammer blow to the rest of the group if they go out and take a win in this game. Doing so they would open up a six-point lead over Sweden who start the game in second place and that would put France in a much stronger position to win the group. Sweden can pull level on points with the leaders then if they can find a way to win this home game. At the very least they have to try and avoid defeat in this one with Bulgaria and the Netherlands still in contention for second place.

Sweden vs France Betting Tips

This should be one of the better qualification matches over the weekend. Both are carrying decent form and Sweden are proving to be no pushovers on home soil. They have gone W3 D1 in their last four games on home soil and have scored eleven goals and conceded just the one in that sequence. In their qualification group, they have taken home wins over Bulgaria and Belarus, while they were held to draw by the Netherlands. So on the evidence of their home form, they should be able to compete well against France and this is their chance to put some pressure on Les Bleus for the top spot.

However, Sweden are well behind in the head to head with France and have won just one of their last fourteen games against the French (D5 L8). Both teams to score at Bet365 looks some value at a price of 21/20 and that happened in the previous match between these in the group, when Sweden lost 2-1 in Paris. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a quote of 23/20 and there is some weight to that as France have kept only two clean sheets in their last seven away games.

France are yet to taste defeat in the qualification group and having banked away wins over the Netherlands and Luxembourg, but they were held to a 0-0 draw by Belarus, which may suggest that Sweden can get something out of this. France have just had a couple of wobbles with form lately, playing out a draw with the Ivory Coast and losing against Spain in a stretch of W2 D1 L1 form in their last four played. But they are too good to keep down and they thrashed Paraguay 5-0 in a warm-up recently, with Olivier Giroud netting a hattrick. He is an 8/5 anytime goalscorer option in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market, with Antoine Griezmann as 11/10 outright favourite.

This should be a competitive game and the 1-1 draw is a tempting 6/1 option in the bet365 correct market. France just won’t want to lose and Sweden can make a pretty solid go of this and a Sweden-Draw Double Chance at 13/10 may be one of the bets of the weekend.
