Best Soccer Bets Today & Betting Tips

Today's Soccer Selections

Published 12:45 Thursday 8th December 2022

Each Team to Receive 2+ Cards Croatia vs. Brazil - World Cup 5/2
Netherlands to qualify Netherlands vs. Argentina - World Cup 7/5
Bukayo Saka over 1.5 shots England vs. France - World Cup 11/10
Portugal to qualify, Fernandes to assist or score Morocco vs. Portugal - World Cup 5/4
Selection 1 - Each team to receive 2+ cards
Croatia vs. Brazil - World Cup, 15:00 (Friday) UK Time
Current Best Price 5/2 | 3.50 | +250

A total of six yellow cards for these teams combined in the tournament so far doesn’t inspire confidence in this bet landing, but there’s cause for optimism. We’re now into the business end of the tournament, where tensions will be running high. It’s a time when winning players will be keen to make the game scrappy and losing players will be frustrated as they face World Cup exit. 

Yellow card accumulation is wiped after the quarter-final, so players who haven’t yet been booked at the World Cup have one up their sleeve, so to speak. With combative players like Casemiro, Richarlison, Kovacic and Barisic all expected to be in the lineups, there’s a clear path for each team to receive two or more cards.

Selection 2 -  Netherlands to qualify
Netherlands vs. Argentina - World Cup, 19:00 (Friday) UK Time
Current Best Price 7/5 | 2.40 | +140

This game revolves around one man, and there are no prizes for guessing the man in question - Lionel Messi. He has single-handedly carried Argentina to this stage of the competition with inspired performances against Mexico and Australia. However, it remains to be seen how long this can carry on. 

Argentina are going to be underpriced across soccer betting sites due to the presence of Messi in their team. This is going to give us bigger odds on a more well-rounded Netherlands side to progress in either 90 minutes, extra time or penalties. The Netherlands look like a value bet to progress against a one-man band in Argentina. 

Selection 3 - Portugal to qualify, Fernandes to assist or score
Morocco vs. Portugal - World Cup, 15:00 (Saturday) UK Time
Current Best Price 5/4 | 2.25 | +125

Morocco's progress to the quarter-finals has been one of the stories of this World Cup, and there have been a fair share. As if finishing top of a group that included Belgium and Croatia wasn't enough, they sent Spain packing after a penalty shootout in Tuesday's Round of 16 tie. Of the eight teams remaining, Morocco are the lowest scorers with four while Portugal are the joint highest scorers with England on 12 goals.

Portugal start this quarter-final as favorites and in Goncalo Ramos, they have a star for the future. Ramos will hope to add to the hat-trick he scored after replacing Cristiano Ronaldo for their 6-1 win over Switzerland. Bruno Fernandes is the only player at this World Cup to have three assists and he has also scored twice. We expect Portugal to book their place in the semi-finals with Fernandes either providing an assist or scoring a goal.

Selection 4 - Bukayo Saka over 1.5 shots
England vs. France - World Cup, 19:00 (Saturday) UK Time
Current Best Price 11/10 | 2.10 | +110

England take on France in the final quarter-final of the tournament, and it promises to be the match of the round. England have scored more than any other team in the tournament while conceding just two. France have scored 10 (two fewer than England) and conceded three.

We can expect plenty of attacking play from both teams. Bukayo Saka has three goals in the tournament thus far and looks set to start once again. In two of his three games, he has over 1.5 shots, and in an attacking game to have the 1.5 line in positive odds is a steal to be taken advantage of.

What Types of Soccer Betting Tips are There?

The best soccer betting tips involve finding a betting angle where our team are confident of getting the edge over a bookmaker. Therefore, it can sometimes pay to look away from the obvious but it all comes down to whether the price looks too big compared to the probability of a selection winning.

Match Winner: you can either back a soccer team to win in normal time or to win a particular cup final or cup tie instead. There are soccer betting tips that might even predict that the draw would happen in ninety minutes. If you want greater value, then why not try and predict the correct score at the end of a certain game.

Draw No Bet: Sometimes our best soccer bets today could involve playing things slightly safer and wagering on the Draw No Bet market. It means you have the insurance of money back if the game ends all square although you will get shorter odds about the team you back.

Winner + BTTS:If you have a free bet to use and you want more juice when it comes to the soccer odds about your soccer betting predictions, then you can consider backing a team and both sides finding the net. Alternatively, you could bet on a soccer team to win to nil by going for the BTTS No option.

Multiple / Accumulator: Sometimes the soccer betting picks involve putting selections in a soccer accumulator bet. You can add bets from the English Premier League to La Liga or Serie A to European ties from the Champions League and the Europa League. This means that the odds for each selection are multiplied together and can create a big potential return from a small stake. Don't forget, you'll find the best football accumulator tips right here at with our excellent tipsters.

What are the Most Popular Soccer Betting Tips?

Full-Time Result - some of the best soccer betting sites will focus on Team A to win their respective match. This is generally a three-way market where you choose the home side, the away side or the draw if you think the clash will end all square. Both Teams to Score - this is a popular two-way betting market and some of the soccer betting predictions will simply involve forecasting whether both sides will find the net. This can be combined with Full-Time Result if you think a team are going to win and their opponent will also find the net.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals - this is a popular betting option should you want to simply focus on the number of goals scored irrespective of the team that finds the net, this can be an interesting market. The best soccer betting tips might include a prediction that there will be Over 2.5 Goals (three goals or more) or Under 2.5 Goals (two goals or less).
