  • Betcris.com No group is more wide open than Group H at the 2018 World Cup. This is the only one of the eight groups where there is no team that is listed as an odds-on favorite according to the oddsmakers, and the only one without a team that is 10-1 or higher.   More

    World Cup 2018 Group G Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.comAll the experts are calling for Belgium and England to come out of this group. The two teams are close to even odds to win the group and this is largely seen as a situation that is 1A and 1B.  More

  • Betcris.com The defending World Cup champions are the strong favorites to win Group F. Germany has been the best team in the world over the last four years and has won two of the three major international tournaments. After winning the 2014 World Cup, Germany were the favorites to win the 2016 European Championships but fell to host France in the semifinals despite controlling most of the game. However, Germany bounced back and won the 2017 Confederations Cup with relative ease to prove that they are once again the team to beat.   More

    World Cup Group E Betting Odds

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com After its failure at home four years ago, Brazil is out to prove that its performance at the last World Cup was an anomaly. Then, Brazil showed that it lacked offensive explosiveness without Neymar. After the superstar was hurt in the Quarterfinals, Brazil tried to play its typical style of football, but quickly realized that was a mistake in a humiliating 7-1 defeat at the hands of eventual champion Germany.   More

  • Betcris.comArgentina are the favorites to win Group D, but it’s not by the margin you might be expecting. This is a dangerous group with many analysts expecting big things out of Croatia, and others considering Nigeria and Iceland to be dangerous sleepers. The Argentines cannot afford a mistake if they want to win the group and avoid a potential match with France in the Round of 16.  More

    World Cup Group C Preview Betting Odds

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.comWhich France will we see at this World Cup? The underachieving side that has embarrassingly crashed out of two of the last four World Cups without a win in the Group Stage, or the burgeoning giant that finished runners-up at the 2016 European Championship. There’s no doubt that this is one of the most talented teams at the World Cup, but whether or not they live up to the hype is another story. There are some dangerous teams in Group C that could give France a run for its money.  More

    World Cup Group B Betting Odds Preview

    By Anonymous

    Betcris.comThis is the most clear-cut group at the World Cup according to many analysts. Portugal and Spain are expected to breeze past their competition and move on to the knockout stages without much of an effort. However, the World Cup has always been known for its surprises. There are always favorites that crash out and darlings that capture the world’s attention after a big upset. Morocco and Iran will see if the slipper fits in June.  More

    By Anonymous

    Betcris.comThe host nation will kick off the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and you can be sure people from around the world will be tuning in to see Russia square off against Saudi Arabia. Russia and Uruguay are considered the favorites in this group because of both their talent and their track record, but this might be the most talented Egyptian team yet, and Saudi Arabia has pulled off surprises at the World Cup before. This should be an interesting group to watch.  More

    World Cup 2018 Odds First Look

    By Anonymous

    Betcris.comEvery four years, the most anticipating sporting event in the world takes place. No, it’s not the Olympics, but the World Cup. Billions of people from across the planet will tune in to watch 32 teams vie for global supremacy, but only one team will be able to crown itself champion after the month-long tournament. Familiar names like the United States, Chile, Cameroon, Ghana, Italy, and the Netherlands failed to qualify, while other teams are making their first appearance. That will help make for a very interesting World Cup.  More

  • Betcris.comThe field for the 2018 World Cup in Russia is just about set. Over the weekend, Senegal, Morocco and Tunisia all locked up their bids to the biggest soccer tournament in the world out of Africa while Switzerland and Croatia raced through their European playoffs to punch their tickets.  More

  • Betcris.comThere are just nine spots left in the World Cup in Russia in 2018. Over the course of the next several days, those slots will all be filled, and the field for the biggest soccer tournament in the world will be finalized.  More

  • Betcris.comWe're officially at business time when it comes to World Cup qualifying. Eight of the 32 slots for the World Cup have been filled, as Russia, Brazil, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Belgium, South Korea and Saudi Arabia have already booked their slot in the biggest international competition in the world. Of the other 24 slots available, at least some of them will be filled up by the time we're done with the matches that are coming up at the end of the week in qualifying.  More

  • Betcris.comThe 2018 World Cup is starting to really take some shape, and matches on Friday and Tuesday, particularly in CONCACAF will finally start to tell the tale of who's going to be playing in Russia next summer.  More

  • Betcris.comQualifying for the 2018 World Cup is about at its end, and in Asian, the action over the course of the last two match days is going to be brutally intense. There are still eight teams who are vying for four spots to the World Cup and one spot in the intercontinental playoff, and these last two matches held at the end of August and the beginning of September will separate the teams.  More

  • Betcris.comThere's still four matches left to be played in World Cup qualifying in Europe, but there are already some teams that have to be wondering if they're ultimately actually going to get to Russia or not.  More

  • Betcris.comThere's still a long way to go in World Cup qualifying, but the Hex is starting to really take shape in CONCACAF. Mexico and the United States played on Sunday night instead of on Tuesday to give the Mexicans time to get to Russia for the Confederations Cup which starts this weekend. The draw didn't really feel all that satisfactory for either side, but if we're being honest about the whole thing, it's a result that neither club should be all that unhappy with in the end.  More

  • Betcris.comThe argument could be made that the U.S. Men's National Team held onto Jurgen Klinsmann far too long. Klinsmann was a disaster at the end of the Copa America Tournament, and that probably should have been the last straw after a terrible Gold Cup in which the team finished fourth. In fact, the Americans barely made it out of the fourth round of World Cup qualifying, needing wins over Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad & Tobago in the last round of qualifying just to get into the Hexagonal.  More

  • Betcris.comWe're just a few short months away from the end of World Cup qualifying, as 32 teams will finally finishing earning the right to play in Russia for the biggest soccer tournament in the world. Here's a brief analysis of how qualifying is going across the globe.  More

  • Betcris.comThe host nation knows that it's going to the World Cup years and years in advance of the event. But rare is the team that is already qualified more than a year out. Oh sure, there are teams who effectively always reach the highest level of international soccer, but what Brazil was able to do against its mates in South America over the course of the last two years of qualifying has been outrageous. The team is 10-3-1 and is the first to qualify for the World Cup out of South America and the second to do so overall. There are three automatic spots left to hand out and one more to the intercontinental playoff, and there's four matches left for teams to make their moves.  More

  • Betcris.comWe're only through four of the 10 matches to be played in the Hexagonal, the last round of World Cup qualifying in CONCACAF, but after some odd matches last November, the cream is starting to rise to the top. It's becoming fairly clear that the top three teams are going to survive and reach Russia in 2018, but the gap is still small enough between the top and the bottom that no one is firmly safe, while no one is anywhere near finished yet either.  More

  • Betcris.comQualifying for the World Cup in South America is about as tough as it gets. Not only does your squad have to be good for the short run, but it's going to have to play competitive matches for over two years to determine if it's going to ultimately get the chance to play in the World Cup. This year, there are four automatic qualifying spots and one more that will move on to the Intercontinental playoff to face off with the Oceania winner, a home-and-home fixture set that the CONMEBOL side will be heavily favored to advance from.  More
