Oct 7: World Cup Betting Preview


FRANCE made a stuttering start to their World Cup campaign with a draw in Belarus but should get back on track.

The hosts were probably suffering from a Euro hangover after their loss to Portugal on penalties in the Final.

All the big guns are available for tonight’s home tie against Bulgaria but striker Olivier Giroud is a doubt.

Antoine Griezmann will start up front and the Atletico Madrid star is always worth a goal. He is 17-5 at McBookie to net first and 21-20 at Coral to score.

He’ll be supported by the likes of Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Raphael Varane and Kingsley Coman while Dimitri Payet will be looking to add to his special tally of goals after that stunner against Middlesbrough.

Payet is 5-1 at McBookie to break the deadlock and 7-5 to net at any time.

France are a short price to win at 1-7 with McBookie and you can see why. Before the Euros they’d won six in a row at home, scoring 18 and conceding five.

Even France minus one is short at 2-5 with bet365 so the value could be with France minus two at 11-10 at Paddy Power.

Belgium bombed at the Euros and with Roberto Martinez at the helm won their opener 3-0 in Cyprus.

Martinez’s men will be more seriously tested at home to Bosnia and best bet here could be both teams to score at 19-20 with bet365.

The Belgians look a little short at 11-20 with McBookie but they’ve lost just one of their last 11 at home.

Romelu Lukaku hit a double in Cyprus and is good form for Everton. Back him to score at 21-20 with Ladbrokes and to net first he is 19-5 at McBookie.

Portugal are ridculously short to beat Andorra at home but Cristiano Ronaldo may be worth a punt to score first at 17-10 with 888sport. In fact if he’s in the mood he could hit three but I wouldn’t waste my money at a paltry 6-4 with bet365.

Holland have kept faith with Danny Blind as they bid to get back to qualifying ways. It won’t be easy for them and it could be a case of Blind faith.

Their form has improved since they failed to make it to France but incredibly they lost five in a row in front of their home fans.

The Dutch should end that sequence but at 2-7 can you back them against a Belarus side who battled to a 0-0 draw with the French. Belarus have beaten the Dutch twice so I’m leaving this one well alone.

I’ll add to this preview if I get time but my focus on Friday will be finishing my Daily Record columns for Saturday.
