Eight teams from groups E and F play their 2022 World Cup games today. Excluding Canada, all of them still have a chance to book a ticket to the knockout phase. Knowing this, it’s guaranteed that these four games will be super-fun for the viewers. Will they be fun for bettors as well?

The answer is yes because the Vegas odds for the Moneyline markets are great. This is especially true for the two Group F games, both of which kick off at 10 a.m ET.

The 2018 World Cup runners-up (Croatia) are locking horns with the team that won third place in that tournament (Belgium). Ahead of the third round of the group stage, Croatia are sitting top of the group with four points. Belgium are two spots below with a point fewer.

What this means is that in order to seal a place in the knockouts, Croatia need a win or a draw. A draw would work for Belgium as well, but only if Morocco got blown out by Canada. Roberto Martinez’s men must assume that won’t happen. Instead, rather than thinking about the other game, they need to focus on their own and try to beat Croatia.

The bad news for their fans is that things don’t seem to be great in the Belgium locker room. Rumor has it that there’s beef between some players.

Canada are going home after this match. With zero points after two rounds, they stand no chance of advancing to the playoffs. Morocco, on the other hand, do stand a chance to get there. In fact, their chance is very good.

As they got one point more than Belgium, a win over Canada would get them to the round of 16 no matter what happens in Croatia vs Belgium game. That seems like good enough motivation for the Atlas Lions to give their utmost today.

As Lineker famously said, soccer is a game in which 22 players run after the ball, and Germany win in the end. Not this time, Gary! After two rounds of the 2022 World Cup, Die Mannschaft are still without a single win.

Hansi Flick’s men lost to Japan in the first round, then played a draw with Spain. As a result, they now need to get a big win against Costa Rica. Luckily for them, it seems very likely that scenario will play out.

For Spain, it would be better to finish second in Group E. Why? Because it would mean avoiding Brazil and Argentina on the road to the 2022 World Cup Final. However, Luis Enrique and his men aren’t like that – they’re not afraid of a challenge.

Plus, in order to finish second in their group, they would need to lose to Japan and hope that Germany don’t blow out Costa Rica. Knowing all this, it’s almost 100% certain Spain will go for a win against Japan.
