World Cup 2018 Group C Predictions

You are here

Teams: France, Australia, Peru, Denmark

It’s no surprise France is the favorite to win this group with the obvious talent that fills this squad’s ranks. They also make France among the favorites to win the 2018 World Cup having a +650 moneyline ($100 wins $650).

Hopefully, this doesn’t give them a false sense of security though which could lead to disaster and an early exit from the World Cup. Since failing to win the Euro Cup on their home soil, this team has yet to prove they can win a title let alone a World Cup.

Coach Didier Deschamps has been responsible for turning France into a formidable opponent and he’s expected to make it to the semifinals at the very least, anything else would be unacceptable.

There’s an interesting battle for second place with opponents who could end up raising many eyebrows.

It’s Australia’s fourth consecutive World Cup; the current team is mostly the same as the one that went to Brazil four years ago and helped the country win their first Asian Cup title in 2015. There are open questions regarding who will lead Australia as Ange Postecoglou quit as coach a week after Australia secured their place in Russia, and is yet to be replaced.

Peru edged out strong competition in their region, beating giants Chile, Ecuador, and Paraguay for South America’s fifth spot in the World Cup. Notable include Flamengo player and team captain Paolo Guerrero, who scored six goals in qualifying but is now questionable for Russia while a FIFA doping ban is being appealed.

Denmark is among the up-and-coming teams in Europe and could be this World Cup’s dark horse. Though they haven’t played in a major tournament since the 2012 Euro Cup, they head into this competition with an 11-game winning streak. Playmaker Christian Eriksen is Denmark’s standout at scoring goals. His form can decide Denmark's passage in Russia 2018.

Predictions: France is the -350 favorites to win the group and the best bet at that. Denmark has a solid shot at earning the second spot at -145, but expect strong fights from Peru and the Aussies.
