Today's World Cup Picks

Senegal Senegal vs Ecuador Ecuador
Pick - DRAW
Senegal vs Ecuador -Draw- (+205)

Question marks over Valencia’s fitness are another reason to take a long look at the draw here. Both teams may be short on cutting edge in the final third, so look for the defenses to be on top throughout. If the score is tied at the hour mark, it’s hard to believe that Ecuador will push too hard for a winner – instead, look for defensive substitutions to grind out a result. Senegal showed signs of life against Qatar, but this Ecuador team is fearless and well-organized. I like Gustavo Alfaro’s side to get the point they need on Tuesday.

Qatar Qatar vs Netherlands Netherlands
Pick - PROP
NED Netherlands Cody Gakpo to score (+150)

Having scored twice already in Qatar, and scoring nine Eredivisie goals for PSV this season in just 14 games, there’s no way that we don’t see Gakpo continue to start in an advanced position for the Netherlands. This is a game that’ll suit him. They’ll dominate possession and he’ll have plenty of opportunities to showcase his movement and creativity against a poor Qatari backline.

USA USA vs Iran Iran
Pick - PROP
USA vs Iran Both teams to score — No (-125)

I could see this match playing out in a variety of ways, none of which I’m comfortable enough with to bet on. The one scenario I keep coming back to again and again is that only one of these two teams — if either at all — is going to find the back of the net. Either we see a scoreless draw or we see a win with just one team scoring. Take both teams to not find the back of the net as your best bet for what should be a truly cagey affair.

England England vs Wales Wales
Pick - SPREAD
ENG England -1.0 (+120)

Wales can only qualify by thrashing England in this game, so they have to go out and attack from the start. That’ll play into the hands of England, who can soak it up and hit them on the break. England’s team is blessed with pace and that should be enough to help them win this comfortably.

Denmark Denmark vs Australia Australia
Pick - MONEYLINE
DEN Denmark Draw/Denmark (HT/FT) (+300)

At this World Cup, we’ve seen a lot of games going into halftime at 0-0 and I expect this one to be the same. Denmark haven’t had a first-half goal in either of their two games, so I’m backing a draw at halftime with Denmark winning at full-time, available at +300. Australia will look to hold their place in the next round but they won’t be able to keep Denmark at bay as they lay on the pressure in the second half.

France France vs Tunisia Tunisia
Pick - TEAM TOTAL
FRA France France o1.5 goals (-133)

If Mbappe, Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann all start, that combination should be too much for a Tunisia team that allowed nine shots on goal in their 1-0 loss to a limited Australia attack. If France shuffles the deck, there’s a major incentive for backups like Kingsley Coman, Marcus Thuram, and Randal Kolo Muani to make an impression.

Argentina Argentina vs Poland Poland
Pick - PROP
ARG Argentina Lionel Messi anytime goal (+120)

Messi has scored in six straight matches for his national team, and his goal against Mexico was an example of him simply finding a way to put the team on his back, and with a victory almost necessary, I can see him doing it once again.

Mexico Mexico vs Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia
Pick - SGP
Mexico vs Saudi Arabia Both teams to score + o2.5 (+115)

The conditions for this matchup are ripe for an Over. It's easy to envision a game that may start slow but will quickly open up. Both sides will open themselves up for attackers because they know they need to score and win. Two teams attacking with little to no regard is what you want when backing the Over, and we're more likely than not to get that here.
