World Cup Odds and Best Bets: Croatia v Brazil Bet Builder – December 9

The latest free bets, betting offers and tips ahead of the Croatia and Brazil World Cup quarter-final meeting.

World Cup favourites Brazil were simply stunning the first-half of their last 16 tie against South Korea, laying out their credentials for a sixth World Cup win with a 4-1 win.

All their goals came in a brilliant first-half performance, with key attackers Neymar, Vinicius Jr and Richarlison all on the scoresheet, showing how ready they are to kick into gear at the business end of the World Cup.

They look set to be punters’ favourites in the next few rounds and with Neymar at full fitness, they could continue to plunder goals against a leggy and uninspiring Croatia side that limped past Japan into the last eight.

They triumphed in a poor penalty shootout, but in truth it looked as though it was a tournament too far for the likes of Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic, who were both substituted with the game on the line.

Despite that, don’t be surprised if they manage to drag the game into stoppage time and potentially penalties.

This World Cup has been a great one to take advantage of with some of the best free bets and World Cup betting offers around, so why not get in on the action and sign up with one of 101 Great Goals betting offers?

Bet Builder of the Day by TipMan

Morocco Vs Spain – 15:00 Tuesday 6th December

Sofyan Amrabat to commit 1 or more fouls

Over 2.5 Morocco corners

The African side have been backed with a huge following in Qatar and they are sure to make it a hostile atmosphere for their opponents Spain.

Morocco have plenty of attacking options and Spain proved against Japan that they can be suspect defensively so the likes of Ziyach and Boufal will fancy their chances of causing Spain plenty of problems. Morocco average 3.5 corners earned per match while Spain concede on average 3.4 corners per game so the angle of Morocco picking up a few corners at a decent price looks a solid selection here.

Sofyan Amrabat, Moroccos anchor in midfield is sure to be an important player here and have his hands full with some technically brilliant Spanish midfielders. This season in Serie A he has committed 23 fouls and has averaged 2.53 fouls per game, he has committed at least one foul in 95% of his games. With his important role of breaking up play and the quality Spain have its hard to see him not making at least one foul here.

Portugal Vs Switzerland – 19:00 Tuesday 6th December

Over 2.5 match cards

Manuel Akanji to commit 1 or more fouls

Over 6.5 match corners

Portugal and Switzerland play it out in this round of 16 match in what proved to be an entertaining game. Both sides have been involved in some thrilling matches this season and it’s hard to think we’re not in for another great game here today.

Portugal will be the favourites here but this Switzerland side are by no means an easy team to beat, they have quality throughout the side and were narrowly beaten by Brazil in the group stage by 1 goal.

One thing that does look nailed on is cards, both teams have poor discipline records and have racked up the cards already in this tournament. Both teams average over 2 cards earned per match and Mexican referee César Arturo Ramos has given out on average 4.7 cards per game in his last 159 games.

Manuel Akanji recently signed for Man City averages 1.08 fouls per game this season but taking in to account he’s playing in a City side who absolutely dominate most teams they play you would expect him to be put under more pressure by the attacking players of Portugal here.

In terms of corners and similar to cards both teams have been busy with both corners earned and corners conceded this tournament and just in general. Portugal average 5.5 corners earned per game whilst Switzerland average 4.7 corners earned per game. Over 6 corners have landed in 80% of their games and both teams concede between 4 and 5 corners per game in recent times
