2018 World Cup final betting preview and tips


We started the 2018 World Cup with thirty-two teams and the field has now been whittled down to two, with France and Croatia locking horns on Sunday afternoon in what should be a captivating encounter.

Didier Deschamps’ side have won all five of their matches in this tournament, with the reserve team drawing 0-0 with Denmark although the other games have seen Les Bleus triumph in different ways.

Most of the methods have relied upon running a tight ship with the exception of a 4-3 win over Argentina which didn’t accurately tell the story of French dominance for the vast majority of the game.

Wins over Uruguay and Belgium have been subsequently won in a more typical fashion, with France trading at 1.91 with bet365 to get over the line in normal time and they look like the best team in the competition.

The goalkeeper is excellent, the centre-halves are like solid oak trees and N’Golo Kante is once again demonstrating that he’s the best defensive midfielder in the whole world.

Then we have the wonderful Kylian Mbappe who shows an exquisite turn of foot and he’s accompanied in the dangerous attacking positions by Antoine Griezmann who is ready to play on the big stage again.

Croatia are 5.00 with bet365 to win in normal time and it’s something they managed three times during the group stage but failed to do in any of their knockout matches to date.

However, they have managed to draw each match and find a way to win against Denmark, Russia and England, with bet365 going 3.30 about the match ending all square.

France are 1.40 to lift the trophy, with Croatia 3.00 to win their first ever World Cup and the Blazers will feel as though destiny is calling.
