Expert 2018 World Cup Betting Preview for Day 13

Written by on June 25, 2018

Tuesday will see the arrival of Day 13 of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and it’s a day that is going to be unlucky for 4 teams. We are now officially in Matchday 3, the last games in the group stage, with the fates of the teams in Group C and Group D, decided on this day.We are in for some serious drama in these final games, as they are played simultaneously, which means that the fortunes of each team can change with each passing minute and goal. Only 2 of the 8 teams involved in these two groups are ensured of a spot in the next round, so it’s all to play for here. Let’s take a look at the latest MyBookie Sportsbook Odds to win and advance.

Expert 2018 World Cup Betting Preview for Day 13

Australia vs. Peru

  • 2018 World Cup Odds: Australia +209 / Peru +134 / Draw +238
The Aussies are still alive by the skin of their teeth, but they need to win here and get some help from France in the other game. This could be a tough one for Australia, though, as Peru has been a very fun team to watch, although their inability to score has cost them dearly.Peru is already out of the tournament, but this is a team with a lot of pride, and they are going to come out and have a go here. While Australia has scored twice, both goals have come via the penalty spot, so they too have had issues scoring from open play. I think we will see some goals here, and I think Peru will edge it.

Possible Line-Ups

Australia
  • 1-M. Ryan
  • 16-A. Behich
  • 20-T. Sainsbury
  • 19-J. Risdon
  • 5-M. Milligan
  • 15-M. Jedinak
  • 7-M. Leckie
  • 13-A. Mooy
  • 23-T. Rogić
  • 11-A. Nabbout
  • 10-R. Kruse
Peru
  • 1-P. Gallese
  • 2-A. Rodríguez
  • 15-C. Ramos
  • 17-L. Advíncula
  • 6-M. Trauco
  • 19-Y. Yotún
  • 8-C. Cueva
  • 23-P. Aquino
  • 20-É. Flores
  • 9-P. Guerrero
  • 18-A. Carrillo
Score Prediction: Australia 1 – Peru 2

France vs. Denmark

  • 2018 World Cup Odds: France +114 / Denmark +385 / Draw +170
The French have already punched their ticket into the next round after winning their opening two games, but they have not been entirely convincing. Word is that the French may use this opportunity to give some of their big-name players a rest, which may just open the door for Denmark.A point would be enough for the Danes to move on, although they can also still lose and get into the knockout stage if Peru gets any kind of result against Australia. I think we are in for a low-scoring game here and a France win.

Possible Line-Ups

France
  • 1-H. Lloris
  • 4-R. Varane
  • 5-S. Umtiti
  • 21-L. Hernández
  • 2-B. Pavard
  • 14-B. Matuidi
  • 6-P. Pogba
  • 13-N. Kanté
  • 9-O. Giroud
  • 7-A. Griezmann
  • 10-K. Mbappé
Denmark
  • 1-K. Schmeichel
  • 4-S. Kjær
  • 14-H. Dalsgaard
  • 17-J. Larsen
  • 6-A. Christensen
  • 19-L. Schöne
  • 8-T. Delaney
  • 10-C. Eriksen
  • 9-N. Jørgensen
  • 20-Y. Poulsen
  • 23-P. Sisto
Score Prediction: France 1 – Denmark 0

Nigeria vs. Argentina

  • 2018 World Cup Odds: Nigeria +573 / Argentina -201 / Draw +336
No player came into this tournament with more pressure on their shoulders than Lionel Messi. He has not handled that pressure particularly well, although he is getting very little help from his supporting cast. Argentina is now on the brink of elimination, and reports suggest that there is a rather large divide in the dressing room, too.Argentina comes in as the favorite at the 2018 World Cup Betting Odds against Nigeria.They are not going to get a lot of help from a Nigeria side that can potentially book passage to the next round with just a draw. I think it will be a tight game here, and I believe it will end in a deadlock.

Possible Line-Ups

Nigeria
  • 23-F. Uzoho
  • 6-L. Balogun
  • 22-K. Omeruo
  • 5-W. Troost-Ekong
  • 2-B. Idowu
  • 10-J. Obi Mikel
  • 11-V. Moses
  • 4-W. Ndidi
  • 8-O. Etebo
  • 7-A. Musa
  • 14-K. Iheanacho
Argentina
  • 12-F. Armani
  • 14-J. Mascherano
  • 2-G. Mercado
  • 17-N. Otamendi
  • 3-N. Tagliafico
  • 15-E. Pérez
  • 16-M. Rojo
  • 7-E. Banega
  • 10-L. Messi
  • 11-A. Di María
  • 9-G. Higuaín
Score Prediction: Nigeria 1 – Argentina 1

Croatia vs. Iceland

  • 2018 World Cup Odds: Croatia +116 / Iceland +253 / Draw +236
Croatia came into this tournament as a dark horse, but after two games, they might well be among the favorites to win it all. They put in a workmanlike performance in a 2-0 win over Nigeria and then showed their class with a 3-0 rout of Argentina.Croatia is already safely into the next round, so expect to see some changes in their line-up. Iceland was not able to build on their opening game point against Argentina, losing 2-0 to Nigeria in their second game. They can still sneak into second but need a win and some help to do so. I just don’t see them getting anything out of this one.

Possible Line-Ups

Croatia 
  • 23-D. Subašić
  • 21-D. Vida
  • 3-I. Strinić
  • 6-D. Lovren
  • 2-Š. Vrsaljko
  • 10-L. Modrić
  • 7-I. Rakitić
  • 4-I. Perišić
  • 11-M. Brozović
  • 17-M. Mandžukić
  • 18-A. Rebić
Iceland
  • 1-H. Halldórsson
  • 6-R. Sigurðsson
  • 2-B. Sævarsson
  • 18-H. Magnússon
  • 8-B. Bjarnason
  • 14-K. Árnason
  • 17-A. Gunnarsson
  • 10-G. Sigurðsson
  • 19-R. Gíslason
  • 11-A. Finnbogason
  • 22-J. Böðvarsson
Score Prediction: Croatia 2 – Iceland 0
