World Cup Group F Betting Preview

GERMANY (5/1 to win World Cup 2018 with BetVictor)

Defending world champions, Germany eased through the qualification process in superb form, winning all 10 matches with a goal difference of +39.

The squad is built around a core of players who won the trophy four years ago (although there’s no place for World Cup final match-winner Mario Gotze), with those numbers boosted by the availability of Manuel Neuer after having missed the majority of the season with a broken foot.

With the likes of Mats Hummels, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller in addition to Neuer, there’s a formidable looking spine to Joachim Low’s team.

Timo Werner is 2/1 with William Hill to be Germany’s Top Goalscorer, which looks a reasonable World Cup bet given that he would appear to be the likeliest to lead the line.  The 16/1 with Betfair on Werner to be overall World cup 2018 Top Goalscorer isn’t without some each-way appeal either.

Germany can be backed at 7/4 with SunBets to win all three of their Group F games.


MEXICO (100/1 to win World Cup 2018 with bet365*)

Mexico came through qualification in CONCACAF with little problem, which certainly hasn’t always been the case.

After six consecutive exits from the competition in the last 16, the aim for Mexico this year is to break that hoodoo and go at least one round further.  Colombian coach Juan Carlos Osorio has a talented and experienced squad at his disposal, although the injury that rules out highly-rated centre-back Nestor Araujo is a significant blow.  

His 23-man roster does include 39 year-old Rafael Marquez, making his fifth appearance in a World Cup finals, despite US government claims that he was a front man for organized crime.  

After an impressive first season in Europe with PSV Eindhoven, Hirving Lozano looks better value at 6/1 with BoyleSports than Javier Hernandez to finish as Mexico’s Top Goalscorer.  


SWEDEN (200/1 to win World Cup 2018 with Betfair)

The Swedes certainly didn’t have an easy route to Russia, finishing above the Netherlands in their group and winning at home to table-topping France, before eliminating Italy in the play-offs.

There might be no Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Henrik Larsson these days, but Sweden still  provide tough opposition with a well-organized team that’s difficult to breakdown (as seven clean sheets in qualification will testify).  There might not be any star names, but in terms of the current Sweden squad, the whole is certainly greater than the sum of the parts.

A winning start against South Korea looks imperative, with the likelihood being that they will be in a straight fight with Mexico for second spot and a place in the last 16 behind the Germans.

Emil Forsberg is the creative force in the team, with Marcus Berg and Ola Toivonen as the regular strike duo.


SOUTH KOREA (750/1 to win World Cup 2018 with bet365*)

South Korea qualified for World Cup 2018 behind Iran from their final group stage in Asia, but won just two points from five games on the road in doing so.  That doesn’t bode well for Russia.

Shin Tae-yong was appointed to succeed Uli Stielike when qualification was looking in doubt, but question marks remain, particularly from a defensive viewpoint.  Toni Grande, a former Spain and Real Madrid number two, was appointed as assistant coach to provide some experienced foreign know-how.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min is the star man for the Taeguk Warriors and to who they will look for their main source of goals.  He’s 11/4 with bet365 to be South Korea’s Top Goalscorer, which would look attractive were there not doubts as to his team’s ability to score more than a goal or two in total anyway.
