The top two teams in Group C square off in their final opening-round fixture on Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET in the 2018 World Cup. France enters this 2018 World Cup match in first place in Group C with six points, while Denmark sits two back with four. France is posted at +130 on the money line for Tuesday’s fixture, meaning you would need to wager $100 on a French victory to win $130. Denmark is at +355, while a draw is +155. The over-under on total goals scored in this 2018 World Cup match is 2.
Before you lock in your 2018 World Cup picks, you need to listen to European football expert David Sumpter. He is an applied mathematician who wrote “Soccermatics,” a book that explains how math works inside the sport. Together, with other experienced analysts, Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.
The Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In nearly three seasons since its inception, the Soccerbot is up an incredible 1,800 percent on bookmakers’ closing odds.
The Soccerbot has already nailed draws for Argentina-Iceland (+385) and Brazil-Switzerland (+360). It also correctly predicted Senegal upsetting Poland at +220, just to name a few of its big calls. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
The Soccerbot has analyzed every angle of France-Denmark and generated a strong money-line selection that is available only over at SportsLine.
The model knows these clubs are well matched at Russia 2018 and will be highly motivated to top Group C.
Denmark’s national team knows a draw against France will secure it a place in the Round of 16. However, a loss to France and an Australian victory over winless Peru would see the Danes’ hopes of advancing past the group stage go down to a total-goals tiebreaker.
Meanwhile, France enters this World Cup 2018 match with a pair of one-goal victories in Russia. France defeated Australia, 2-1, in its opening match and secured a 1-0 victory over Peru thanks to Kylian Mbappe’s tap-in goal. Mbappe became France’s youngest goalscorer at a major tournament at just 19 years and 183 days old.
