World Cup Group C Betting Preview

Up next in our series of 2018 World Cup betting previews we take a look at the World Cup Group C betting odds and tips which contains France, Denmark, Peru and Australia…


FRANCE (8/1 to win World Cup 2018 with 888Sport)

France travel to Russia as one of the betting favourites for World Cup 2018, with a squad that’s the equal of any in terms of depth and quality.  It’s also one of the best balanced squads at the finals, with the likes of Hugo Lloris, Raphael Varane, Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann giving Les Bleus realistic hopes of challenging for the trophy.

Although there are no whipping boys as such, France should navigate Group C without too many problems. The likelihood would appear to be that Denmark should qualify alongside them, making the France/Denmark straight forecast a decent punt at 7/5 with BetStars.

Griezmann looks a solid bet at 2/1 with SkyBet to finish as Top France Goalscorer, particularly as he looks the only certain starter among the forwards at this stage.


PERU (500/1 to win World Cup 2018 with William Hill)

Peru unexpectedly qualified for the World Cup finals for the first time since 1978, although they owe their place in Russia in part to a huge slice of good fortune.

The turning point in their campaign came when they were awarded a 3-0 victory away to Bolivia after initially losing the game 2-0, only for their hosts to be penalized for fielding an ineligible player.

The news that captain and centre-forward Paolo Guerrero will be allowed to play at World Cup 2018 after winning his appeal.  The Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) temporarily lifted a 14-month suspension imposed after the 34 year-old was banned after failing a drug test.  The country’s all-time record scorer is a key player and worth an interest at 5/2 with bet365* to be Peru’s Top Goalscorer in Russia.  

Peru are not great travelers and given their lack of recent experience at this level, the 2/5 available at William Hill on them not to qualify from Group C looks worth backing, as does the 23/10 with 888Sport on them to finish bottom of the group.


DENMARK (100/1 to win World Cup 2018 with SunBets)

A Christian Eriksen hat-trick in Dublin was decisive in seeing off Ireland in the play-offs and the Tottenham Hotspur man will be crucial to Denmark’s ambitions in Russia.  

There are concerns as to where the goals will come from if Eriksen doesn’t supply them and the Danish talisman is a worthy 13/10 favourite with BetStars to be his country’s Top Goalscorer in Russia.

Norwegian Age Hareide was a surprise and far from universally popular choice to replace long-serving predecessor Morten Olsen back in 2016, but has impressed in his spell in charge to date.

The squad looks to have a nice balance to it and there is plenty of top-flight experience from Europe’s major leagues in Hareide’s squad.  Qualification from Group C alongside France should be well within their capabilities and the France/Denmark straight forecast at 7/5 with BetStars could be a profitable punt.  Likewise, Denmark to finish 2nd in Group C at 17/10 with 888Sport looks fairly attractive too.  


AUSTRALIA (750/1 to win World Cup 2018 with William Hill):

Australia played 22 games to qualify for the finals of Word Cup 2018, the most required of any nation in history, coming through play-off ties with Syria and Honduras to finally secure their place in Russia.

Having navigated the aforementioned play-offs, coach Ange Postecoglou promptly resigned to be replaced by Dutchman Bert Van Marwijk, who had himself left his role as Saudi Arabia coach having guided them to Russia.  Van Marwijk has a wealth of experience, with the highlight having been taking his native Holland to the World Cup Final in 2010.

This Australian team is likely to be hard-working and difficult to beat, but they lack the star quality of previous generations. Aaron Mooy and Tom Rogic are the main creative talents, but there are concerns as to who will actually put the ball in the back of the net.  Should he make the final cut for the squad, even as a bit-part player from the bench, 38 year-old Tim Cahill could still represent value at 13/2 with bet365* to finish as Australia’s Top Goalscorer.

Qualification from Group C isn’t impossible, but a 3rd place finish might be a more realistic at odds of 21/10.
