World Cup betting

A number of our readers are interested in goal betting. We’ve written about goal betting in various forms before, including correct score goal betting and over goals betting. This post takes a quick look at some World Cup goal betting tips.

With 16 days until the World Cup with lots of attacking football on the cards goal betting is back on the agenda. Lets look at an interesting England goal bet. Check out England’s recent form against Mexico. Three goals in total. In fact since 2007 England have been scoring quite a few goals. Possibly due to the opposition not being up to scratch. A quick look at England’s friendlies over the last couple of years shows the sort of teams England scores most goals against. Before Mexico England beat Egypt 3-1 against.

On to the FIFA World Cup 2010. England games have produced more than 2.5 goals in 80% of their games since 2007. Considering Fabio Capello wants more aggressive football during the tournament this trend may well continue. Exclude the likes of Brazil, Portugal, and Spain, and World Cup goal bet must be worth considering.

What is an over goals bet? The bookmaker provides odds that there will be more or less than 2.5 goals. This basically means three or more goals for ‘over’ and two or less goals for ‘under’.

For correct score betting don’t gamble on a clean sheet for England because they have only managed that in 3 of the last ten games. A better choice would be Portugal. Portugal haven’t scored a goal in their last 7 games. Portugal to keep a clean sheet would have paid out in 80% of their games.
