World Cup Odds and Tips for Today - December 2

A selection of the best World Cup tips and free bets offers ahead of day 11 of the World Cup in Qatar.

Thursday provided the biggest day of drama and upset of the World Cup yet, with Germany and Belgium both crashing out at the group stages, and Spain progressing despite a shock defeat to Japan.

A controversial goal for Japan helped them snatch a 2-1 win over Spain having come from behind in the second half - just as they did against Germany - to send Hansi Flick’s side packing, who themselves were losing to Costa Rica only to recover and win 4-2.

Had the South American nation finished on top, there could have been dramatic eliminations for Spain and Germany to really open up that side of the draw, but Luis Enrique’s side managed to sneak through despite failing to live up to the lofty standards set by their opening game demolition of Costa Rica.

Croatia confirmed their place in the last 16 with a goalless draw with Belgium, who again disappointed and head home with just one win in their three games after Romelu Lukaku suffered a nightmare in front of goal, missing several clear-cut opportunities to be the hero for his side.

With all but two of the qualifiers now determined - Portugal and Brazil are already through - Friday sees the final day of the group stages, with Serbia, Switzerland, Ghana, Uruguay, Cameroon and South Korea all with a chance of finishing second in their respective groups.

With a number of surprises already in this World Cup, there has never been a better time to take advantage of the best World Cup betting tips, offers and free bets offered by our trusted operators.

Serbia Vs Switzerland - Friday 2nd December 19:00

Over 3.5 Serbia corners ☑️

Over 2.5 Switzerland corners ☑️

Serbia and Switzerland lock horns in a huge match in group G with both sides knowing a win should see them qualify for the next round, exactly as it did in the last World Cup.

This should make for a good game with both teams having to go for the win, especially in Serbia’s case who will be massively disappointed having thrown away a 2 goal lead against Cameroon in the last round of games.

Both sides average 5 corners for per game and with the magnitude of the game it’s hard to see either side not living up to those averages. It’s a very closely matched game which should make for an exciting match with both sides having to go for the win.

Switzerland have had 3 or more corners in 80% of their matches while Serbia have had 4 or more in 60% of their games but we can expect a few more for Serbia with the majority of pressure on them having to win the game.

Ghana Vs Uruguay - Friday 2nd December 15:00

Over 3.5 Ghana corners ☑️

Over 3.5 Uruguay corners ☑️

Ghana and Uruguay do battle in Group H and it’s another huge game with progression on the line and the African side holding all the cards after their win against South Korea in the last match.

Uruguay have been massively disappointing so far, but this is it for them now and a last chance to turn up. Ghana have been involved in exiting games losing 3-2 to Portugal and winning by the same score line against South Korea.

Both sides have exciting attacking players and can chase problems for anyone, but Uruguay look a more solid defensive unit.

Ghana have averaged 6.3 corners for in recent games whilst Uruguay have averaged 4.4 corners for in recent games. With all the pressure on Uruguay who have to win the game you can expect them to mount some pressure which will hopefully result in a few corners at the very least.

Both teams have averaged 4 or more corners for in 65% of their games but with the magnitude and importance of the game you can expect that to be matched at least here.

Serbia v Switzerland

Switzerland or draw

Four years on from Switzerland eliminating Serbia from the World Cup in the final group game with a 2-1 win, they find themselves in the same position again. That day, Mitrovic put Serbia ahead early but Switzerland fought back with goals from Xhaka and Shaqiri, 3 players that will feature heavily again here. Switzerland have the advantage here with 1 point likely to be enough to progress, Serbia will need a win to have any chance. The Swiss are always strong defensively and have conceded 1 in 2 games here. We think Switzerland will have enough at the back to hold onto at least 1 point here and progress to the knockout stages.

Ipswich v Fleetwood Town

Ipswich to win

Promotion chasing Ipswich host Fleetwood Town on Friday night. Ipswich have a good home record this season but are up against a Fleetwood side that have proven tough to beat away from home. Ipswich do however have the upper hand in the head to heads, winning all 3 games last season against Fleetwood. Both sides lost their last league games and will be looking to bounce back, but we expect title chasing Ipswich to have the quality to seal the 3 points here.

Plymouth v Port Vale

Plymouth or draw

League 1 leaders Plymouth host Port Vale at Home Park which has been an absolute fortress for them this season winning all 9 home league games, scoring 19 and conceding just 5 goals. Port Vale have struggled defensively away from home conceding 2 goals per game. Port Vale will be desperate not to lose here to keep in touch with the playoff places but with Ipswich right on Plymouth’s tail and their strong home form, we can’t see how Plymouth go from winning every home game to losing here.

Bolton v Bristol Rovers

Bolton or draw

Bolton take on Bristol Rovers carrying in confidence from their 3-2 win over Barrow and 2-1 away win at Fleetwood. Bristol however suffered FA Cup shock at home falling 2-0 to Boreham Wood. Bolton have been strong this season at home picking up 19 points in their 9 league home matches whilst Bristol have struggled to find any consistency away. It will be a close game but one we cannot see Bolton losing.
