The final group of eight is tough to predict as every team in this group H have a chance to go through. At the first impression, this group is a pleasing continental spread, as there are teams from Europe, South America, Africa and Asia. The group is wide open with Poland drawn alongside Senegal, Colombia and Japan. Poland are the top seed, but the Colombians have big experience and a strong lineup. Feel free to check our World Cup 2018 betting preview, where you can find the best odds available, outright winner tips, free bets, enhanced odds and new customer offers.

Poland Betting Odds

Poland had no problems throughout the qualifying, as they finished top of the group table with five points more than Denmark. However, they are very dependent on Robert Lewandowski’s game. Bayern Munich’s striker was the the qualifying’s top scorer with 16 goals under his belt. Poland are a very well-organized team, but they suffered two disappointing results on the road throughout the qualifying, drawing 2-2 in Kazakhstan and losing 4-0 in Denmark. Poland should be able to qualify from this group, but we’re not sure that they have enough to win the group.

Colombia Betting tips and Odds

Colombia are the bookies’ favourites to win this group H and that’s mainly because of their talented squad. They boast the likes of Radamel Falcao, Carlos Bacca, James Rodriguez, Cuadrado, Mina, etc, and were one of the surprise packages in 2014. Colombia managed to reach the quarter-finals in Brazil four years ago, where they lost 2-1 at the hands of the hosts. Colombia managed to book their place in Russia following a controversial draw against Peru on the final matchday, leaving Chile at home. Colombia are our favourites and also the bookies’ favourites to top this group H.

Senegal Odds and Chances

Senegal boast a number of Premier League stars in the shape of Sadio Mane, Diafra Sakho, Cheikhou Kouyate and Idrissa Gueye. Their sole appearance at the World Cup finals was a memorable one, as they managed to reach the quarter-finals of Korea/Japan 2002. During that unbelievable run, Senegal managed to beat World Champions France in the group stage and Sweden in the first knockout stage. Senegal are definitely one of the strongest African teams qualified for this tournament and it will be interesting to see if they can repeat the 2002 performance.

Japan Odds and Tips

As for Japan, they finished top of their qualifying group table for the World Cup, one point clear of the 2nd-placed Saudi Arabia. The Japanese looked solid at the back throughout the qualification process, as they had the best defensive record in the group with just seven goals conceded in ten games. Shinji Okazaki and Shinji Kagawa will both play a crucial role in manager Vahid Halihodzic’s plans and both are more than capable of scoring goals.
