We look at the two World Cup Semi Finals this week to find the best bet in each game. The action starts on Wednesday morning in Saint Petersburg.

World Cup – France vs Belgium

11 Jul, 4am
France $2.40, Belgium $3.10
France and Belgium meet in the first Semi Final as both sides look to reach the World Cup Final. France easily accounted for Uruguay in their last knockout game and will start as $2.4 favourites. They’ve scored 6 goals in the Knockout stage so far and will be confident up forward. On the other hand, Belgium has been one of the more surprising teams in this World Cup. Having not made the final in their history, they’ll be desperate to end the drought this Wednesday morning. Last game, they knocked off the World Cup favourites Brazil in a 2-1 result. With that win under their belt, they will take massive confidence from beating one of the favourites. So in this matchup against France, I can see both team’s having success in front of goals. With Griezmann and Mbappe in goal scoring form for France, they should continue their run of form against this Belgium defence. They’ve conceded 3 goals in their last 2 games and the over total goals has saluted in 4 of their last 5 World Cup games. Meanwhile, Belgium should have success against the French defence which gave up 3 goals to Argentina a few games ago. So in the end, I suggest backing the over total goals as this game will be hard to pick in terms of a winner.
Best bet: Over 2 goals $1.95

World Cup – Croatia vs England

12 Jul, 4am
England $2.30, Croatia $3.40
In the second Semi-final, England and Croatia go to battle in Moscow. Both sides were probably not expected to reach this stage so they’ve achieved a great deal so far. But the weight of their fans will make them desperate for victory. England haven’t reached the final since 1966 and Croatia has never played in a final. Their best result coming in 1998 when they also reached this stage. During the knockout stage so far, Croatia’s path hasn’t been easy. They’ve played in back to back penalty shootouts against Denmark and Russia. Knocking off the host nation was a huge effort as well. Meanwhile, England survived a shootout against Colombia then dominated Sweden in a 2-0 victory to reach this matchup. So they will start as favourites in this contest. They have a dominant record over Croatia having won the last 2 by a total of 9 goals to 2. However, at the moment both sides are having success in front of goals and I can see value in the both teams to score market. England has scored in 4 of their 5 games so far and I wouldn’t read into their 1-0 loss against Belgium. Croatia has scored in every game of this World Cup and has been tough to stop in attack. Also, in the 7 meetings between the two countries, the both teams to score bet is 5-2 and 3-0 since 2007.
Best bet: Both Teams to Score $2.10
