World Cup group multiple and accumulator betting

Group stage affords good bet building opportunities

World Cup 2018 Betting

We look at some of the World Cup group accas that can be placed for a big return

We’ve gone through each of the 2018 World Cup groups and identified the best bets for the section, although there are also punting opportunities in the form of a multiple bet.

The first port of call is to identify which teams look like bankers to win their groups and we think that the following fit the bill:

Uruguay – Group A
Spain – Group B
France – Group C
Brazil – Group E
Germany – Group F

You can get odds of around 6/1* (betting odds taken from bet365 at 3:28 a.m. on June 13th, 2018) that these five teams win their respective sections, with the countries likely to be motivated in a bid to avoid a difficult last sixteen clash which would be more likely if a side finishes runner-up.

For those wanting to add Argentina (Group D) and Belgium (Group G) into the above, it would turn your acca into odds of 20/1* (betting odds taken from bet365 at 3:28 a.m. on June 13th, 2018), although seven selections in any multiple bet is always a risky business.

If you want to place a World Cup group acca involving Spain, France, Brazil and Germany, then odds of 5/2* (betting odds taken from Paddy Power at 3:28 a.m. on June 13th, 2018) are generally available and these look like the four bankers although bear in mind that Spain wobbled at the 2010 World Cup and will face Portugal in their Group B opener.

To Quailfy Options

There is also the option to combine a number of World Cup teams to qualify for the last sixteen and we thought the following would provide some interest:

Denmark – Group C
Croatia – Group D
Serbia – Group E
Mexico – Group F
England – Group G
Senegal – Group H

An accumulator on these teams to qualify can be backed at 30/1* (betting odds taken from bet365 at 3:28 a.m. on June 13th, 2018) with most bookmakers and this should provide excellent value for money and hopefully a decent return.

Failures can deliver a positive

Alternatively, you can try and profit from teams that you don’t think will fare particularly well. We thought we would try these countries to finish bottom of their section:

Saudi Arabia – Group A
Nigeria – Group D
South Korea – Group F
Panama – Group G
Japan – Group H

Interestingly, there are odds of over 20/1* (betting odds taken from bet365 at 3:28 a.m. on June 13th, 2018) available about the above teams finishing bottom and they might all be out of their depth against higher quality opponents.

Dual Forceast Accas

Finally, if you’re feeling really adventurous, then you can bet on a number of teams in a Dual Forecast accumulator. This is great if you fancy two teams to qualify like Belgium and England from Group G.

Here are some groups that we think could be worth pursuing:

Group C: France and Denmark
Group E: Brazil and Serbia
Group F: Germany and Mexico
Group G: Belgium and England

You can get odds of 14/1* (betting odds taken from bet365 at 3:28 a.m. on June 13th, 2018) about all of the above teams going through from their qualifying section and it could be a bet that goes close!
