2018 FIFA World Cup Final Odds & Betting Prediction
The greatest sporting event in the world is about to draw to a close for another 4 years, as the 2018 World Cup in Russia is now down to just two teams. We will have the third-place game played on Saturday between Belgium and England, but it is the final, which will go on Sunday, that everyone is really waiting for.
Not only is the World Cup Final the most watched sporting event around the globe, it’s also one that is going to generate an awful lot of wagers. There are certainly plenty of different options open to you, and we are going to take a look at all of them today.
So let’s focus on the main bets for the big game and review the betting odds released by YouWager.eu.
World Cup Final Money Line
It’s probably no real surprise that France are in as the favorites at betting odds of -115. They have had the toughest road possible to the final and have made it there without suffering any major scares along the way. That they have not always played exciting football along the way is secondary, because it really is only winning that matters.

Croatia have now had 3 extra-time games in a row, which makes you wonder just how much gas they have left in the tank. You add those extra minutes up and you see that they have basically played one more game than France in the same span of time. Croatia are a rather hefty underdog at +385, mostly because they need to win in regulation time if you are to cash that winning ticket.
It is the draw, which comes in at odds of +220, that may be the way to go here. Croatia have made a habit of needing that extra-time to move on, so why not once more?
World Cup Final Spread
If you fancy France to hoist the World Cup for the second time in their history, the good news is that they do not need to win big in order for you to cash a spread ticket. France are favored by a ½ goal at odds of -115. Croatia are in at + ½ at the same odds as the French. A 1-goal win will do it for France, and oddly enough, that is how I think the final result will go. These two teams somewhat cancel each other out, so I imagine it is going to be a tight victory that carries the day.
World Cup Final Goal Total
The goal total for the final has been set at 2, which is more than fair given how things have gone for these teams. France did have a 4-goal outburst against Argentina, but it has been 1 or 2 goals per game for them, with very little given up defensively. Each of Croatia’s last 3 games have landed on 2 goals in regulation time, so I think the UNDER might be the way to go here, although we may see a push.
As far as prop bets go, I like the Croatia to win or draw double chance wager at odds of -115. This is a team that has found a way to win, or at least get it to extra-time, all through this competition, so why not again in the final?
