The reigning world champions, Germany, start their quest for a presence in the final 32 of the 2018 World Cup away from home against Norway.
After a rather disappointing semi-final exit at Euro 2016, the Germans are eager to be the first team to defend their World Cup title – although they are more than aware they have to change a thing or two in order for this dream to become reality.
World Cup 2018 Qualifying: Betting Prediction, Odds & Tips
Norway vs Germany – 4th September
Betting Odds: Norway 7.00 or 6/1 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 Germany 1.45 or 9/20
But let’s speak about their adversaries first. Norway are one of the candidates for 2nd place in group C, in direct competition with Northern Ireland and the Czech Republic.
They haven’t been exactly impressive in recent times, lacking individual quality as well as club results and even failing to qualify for Euro 2016.
Their current generation doesn’t seem provide many signs that their fate will change in the near future and fans are a bit pessimistic regarding their qualification chances – especially from a group with Germany.
On the other hand, Joachim Low remained to coach Germany for 2 more years and is bound to make some changes to their squad, leaving out players who are clearly unable to perform at top-tier level and making room for new talent.
The under-23 squad won a silver medal in Brazil, only losing on penalties against the home side, so the coach has plenty of new talent to mix with his experienced players. Germany will surely be a force in the final tournament and is expected to qualify with ease from this group.
Norway vs Germany Betting Prediction & Tips
Of course, considering the things highlighted above, we back Germany to do well in this game. We at least expect them to not lose, but we think an over 1,5 goals scored by the Germans or a solo away win are bets with goods odds and good returns. They will do a professional job in their first game of the new qualifiers – the scoreline is the only doubt.
Germany Over 1.5 Goals: 1.57 or 4/7
Germany To Win & Under 3.5 Goals: 2.25 or 5/4

Brazil is one of the biggest country in the world, which has a great significance for the whole South America and Latin America regions. It is the largest economy in the area, but overall you cannot say that the people there are generally wealthy.

Which teams will be promoted to Premier League for 2018-19 season? In many ways, the EFL Championship is the world’s most competitive and fierce domestic league – and to think that it’s actually England second division. The opportunity to take part in the financial recipe of the English Premier League is nothing short of immense. Alongside significant economic gains, the glory that awaits teams who will duel Manchester United, Chelsea, City or Arsenal is another great prize. The league itself is also setup for greatness: 24 teams, three who just failed to cope with the rigorous Premier League, other three which have emerged as the best teams in the League One. With so many differences, both in style as well…
