World Cup 2018 Betting Predictions

Bulgaria took a surprise 3-2 home win over Sweden on Thursday night and that boosted their own chances of making it to the World Cup next year. What it also did is help out the Dutch who were beaten heavily by France. If Bulgaria would have failed to have won that game against Sweden, the Swedish would have been comfortably in second place and the Dutch would have almost been out of the picture. As it is the Dutch are three points back of second placed Sweden only, but they are still two adrift of third placed Bulgaria as well. There are a huge three points on offer in this one.

Netherlands vs Bulgaria Betting Tips

The Dutch have some serious work now left to do over their last three qualification games and this could be the make or break one for them. The Oranje were hammered 4-0 by France on Thursday night and will return home to try and make some amends for that by beating Bulgaria. Even that could still leave them struggling to make it into the top two. What kind of mental resolve do they have now to get over that bruising loss and collect a victory? The Dutch have taken easy victories over both Belarus and Luxembourg at home as was expected of them, but they did suffer a home loss against France in the group. Bulgaria have a lot to play for in this one, so this should be a tough game for the Dutch. In the bet365 correct score market a Netherlands 2-0 result is the shortest option at 5/1, so the home side are expected to win this one. That having been said though, they have lost their last two against the Bulgarians, going down 2-0 against them in Sofia earlier in the group campaign, which followed a home friendly defeat against them back in 2012.

So the Dutch aren’t making life easy for themselves and are now under pressure from Bulgaria as well in the race for second place, which Sweden truculently holds. Bulgaria landed a big 3-2 win over Sweden on Thursday which was actually helpful to the Dutch in a way to stop the Swedes extending an advantage over the Netherlands. But now the Bulgarians are in the mix and they are starting this game one point behind the second-placed Swedes and two ahead of the Netherlands. So a point would keep the Dutch behind them, but if they want to overhaul the Swedes a win would get them closer to achieving that. Bulgaria have won all four of their home games in the group and on the road they have lost all three of their away games. So that is the concern for them, their lack of away form. But Bulgaria have been scoring well and both teams to score at bet365 doesn’t look a bad punt at all for a price of 11/10. This is a huge game for both of these.
