Expert 2018 World Cup Betting Preview for Day 15

Japan vs. Poland

  • When: Thursday, 10 AM ET
  • Where: Volgograd Arena, Volgograd, Russia
  • TV/Stream: Fox Sports 1/Fox Sports Go
  • 2018 World Cup Betting Odds: Japan +153 / Poland +180 / Draw +215 (total 2.5)
The surprise here is that it is Japan with the shot at moving on, while Poland has already been eliminated. Japan made the most of playing with 10 men in their opening game 2-1 win over Colombia, and they twice came from behind to earn a 2-2 tie with Senegal. A win will see them through here, and a draw may even be enough.The biggest question here is whether Poland can finally play well after struggling in their previous two games. There is sure to be a lot more urgency from the Japan squad, which is why I think they get the win.Score Prediction: Japan 2 – Poland 1

Colombia vs. Senegal

  • When: Thursday, 10 AM ET
  • Where: Samara Arena, Samara, Russia
  • TV/Stream: Fox/Fox Sports Go
  • 2018 World Cup Betting Odds: Colombia +117 / Senegal +295 / Draw +245 (Total 2.5)
For me, this is without a doubt the game of the day. The winner of this one stays alive and moves on to the next round. Colombia needs that win, but Senegal knows that they can go through with the tie. Colombia looked like the team we expected prior to the start of this tournament when they beat Poland 3-0 in a do or die game.Senegal surprised Poland in their opener but will be a little upset that they were not able to take out Japan after twice being ahead in that game. Both teams are going to come out and go for it, which means we are probably going to see some goals.Score Prediction: Colombia 3 – Senegal 2

Belgium vs. England

  • When: Thursday, 2 PM ET
  • Where: Kaliningrad Stadium, Kaliningrad, Russia
  • TV/Stream: Fox/Fox Sports Go
  • 2018 World Cup Lines: England +159 / Belgium +17 / Draw +210 (Total 2.5)
Both teams have already booked their passage into the next round, so they are playing for top spot in the group in this one. These two have been banging in the goals, with both of them hammering in 8 goals in their opening two games.Belgium comes in as the 2018 World Cup Betting favorite against England.Belgium is likely to be without the services of Romelu Lukaku, who has 4 goals through the first two games, as he took a bit of a knock against Tunisia last time out. While this might suggest that England are now the favorites, I don’t see it that way. Belgium has plenty of depth on the bench, and I like them to win this one.Score Prediction: Belgium 2 – England 1

Panama vs. Tunisia

  • When: Thursday, 2 PM ET
  • Where: Mordovia Arena, Saransk
  • TV/Stream: Fox Sports 1/Fox Sports Go
  • 2018 World Cup Betting Odds: Tunisia -123 / Panama +310 / Draw +245 (Total 2.5)
Not every team who goes out in the opening round is truly deserving of their fate. Panama is certainly one of the teams who deserve to be out, but the same cannot be said for Tunisia. Panama has been pounded in both their games thus far, giving up 9 goals in the process.Tunisia has lost both games, too, but they have been attack-minded and fun to watch. They were probably a little unfortunate to lose to England, and they did not lie down to Belgium. With that in mind, I think Tunisia will get the win that their positive play deserves.Score Prediction: Panama 0 – Tunisia 3
