Today, we are offering tips on how best to bet on the 2018 World Cup.

The Fifa World Cup 2018 is almost upon us and we couldn’t be more excited. There are so many betting opportunities for everybody that it boggles the mind.

In fact, there are too many to count so it wouldn’t surprise us if every player that chooses to place a bet wouldn’t get overwhelmed by the sheer number of bets they could make.

That’s where we come in. Our objective today is to provide you a number of tips before making any World Cup 2018 bets. Trust us, you’re going to need them.

How Does the World Cup Work?

Before we get to the more important part, let’s first of all recount what the Fifa World Cup is all about. The 32 countries are divided into 8 groups of 4 and each country faces each other at least once to determine who will be going into the next round.

Here are all eight groups in order and their respective countries:

  • Group A — Russia, Egypt, Uruguay, Saudi Arabia
  • Group B — Spain, Portugal, Iran, Morocco
  • Group C — France, Denmark, Australia, Peru
  • Group D — Argentina, Croatia, Iceland, Nigeria
  • Group E — Brazil, Switzerland, Costa Rica, Serbia
  • Group F — Germany, Sweden, Mexico, South Korea
  • Group G — Belgium, Tunisia, England, Panama
  • Group H — Poland, Columbia, Senegal, Japan

Once the winning teams are successful, they will move on into the next round and face off with tougher competition. They will be, however, one step further to claiming the World Cup title.

TL; DR — Each Country is split into groups of four and the winning teams get to move on into the next round.

With all this in mind then, you’re probably curious as to how exactly you can make bets based on this grouping system. Well, let’s take a closer look at the potential betting options you can make based on this system.

Bet on Individual Teams

The first and most obvious bet you can make is on individual countries either winning their respective matches or going onto the next round.

Here are some advantages to doing this:

  • The bet is more precise and will be of higher risk, depending on which team you bet on, meaning higher returns.
  • Gives you a focus as opposed to betting on a random team winning the world cup.
  • Easier to check odds on individual teams than it is on any other kind of bet.

Bet on Match Outcomes

Rather than betting on specific teams, sometimes it’s better to bet on the outcomes of each match as they happen. Here are a few reasons as to why:

  • Dispenses you of any kind of loyalty which could potentially blind your better judgement.
  • Leaves you more unbiased and able to make bets that would be better for your budget.
  • Even more laser-focused than just betting on individual teams.

Bet On Continent Majority

The more unusual kind of betting but putting money on which continent will come through into the next round is the safer bet for sure. In our opinion, you’re best off either betting Europe or South America will survive the next round.

TL; DR — There are different approaches you can make depending on which way you want to go about betting on the World Cup.
