World Cup Odds and Tips for Today - December 5

A selection of the best World Cup tips and free bets offers ahead of day 15 of the World Cup in Qatar.

England and France made it through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup with stylish wins on Sunday, beating Senegal and Poland respectively as the business-end of the tournament clicks into gear.

The two sides have arguably been the most impressive in Qatar so far, but the pre-tournament favourites, Brazil, return to action on Monday against South Korea in what promises to be an intriguing clash between two contrasting styles while underdogs Morocco will hope to cause an upset against Croatia.

The biggest news of the day surrounds the fitness of Neymar, with the Brazilian talisman expected to return to the XI after suffering an injury against Serbia. His return could inspire the Brazilians to improved performances after a couple of struggles and will be among the favourites to score first against an admirable South Korea side.

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, odds, offers and free bets offered by our trusted operators.

Japan v Croatia – Monday 5th December 15:00

Over 2.5 Match Cards ☑️

Over 7.5 Match Corners ☑️

Japan and Croatia meet in the last 16 of the World Cup. Japan finished top of Group E above Spain and Germany and beating both of the aforementioned giants but losing to Costa Rica. Japan had a record low of 18% possession in the 2-1 victory over Spain.

Croatia qualified 2nd in Group F behind Morocco and ahead of Belgium and Canada, and conceded just 1 goal in their 3 group games.

The 2 sides average 8.9 corners per game but with both sides pushing for a win and fancying their chances of progression here, we expect over 7.5 corners to land with ease.

The sides average 2 cards per game but with all to play for here and neither side wanting to lose, expect plenty of heavy challenges and cynical fouls preventing counter attacks. The game will be officiated by American referee Ismail Elfath who has dished out 11 cards in his 2 world cup games and 1 red card.

Brazil v Korea Republic - Monday 5th December 19:00

Over 2.5 Match Goals ☑️

Over 6.5 Match Corners ☑️

Brazil face South Korea in a favourable last 16 draw for them. They head into this knockout game a huge 1.25 odds on favourite. South Korea do attack well though, and fast, scoring twice in their previous 2 group games and beating Portugal 2-1 to seal qualification.

The 2 sides have average 3 goals per game, but Brazil are creating and conceding plenty of chances. South Korea have to fight here to stay in the competition and will fight for all 90 minutes.

Brazil rested many key players in their 1-0 late defeat to Cameroon and we can expect most to come back into the starting 11 and will be fighting for a place in the Quarter-Final team, should they progress. They will be facing a tired and leggy South Korea who beat Portugal to progress just 72 hours prior.

The sides average 10.5 corners and over 6.5 offers great value here and should land with ease. We expect Brazil will go close to 7 corners alone. South Korea do play on the counterattack and may force a few corners themselves. Also, if the game is close and Brazil have a narrow lead, or if South Korea are still in the tie, we can expect plenty of clock running in the corner

December 05, 2022

Brazil v South Korea

Over 1.5 Brazil goals

Brazil face a favourable last 16 tie against South Korea, who scraped through Group H after beating a much-changed Portugal side 2-1. Brazil qualified top of Group G and made 9 changes in their 1-0 late defeat to Cameroon. They now face South Korea who haven’t Impressed much so far. They drew with Uruguay 0-0 and lost to Ghana, but qualified after beating a heavily changed Portugal side, slightly against the run of play. Brazil will be fresh after resting most of their key players, and we expect Brazil will dominate the ball and have lots of chances. South Korea also now have to play for the win, which may leave them open at the back.

Çaykur Rizespor v Pendikspor

Over 1.5 Match Goals

Çaykur Rizespor host Pendikspor for the first time in this Turkish league clash. Both sides are in good form and fighting for promotion. Both sides average 2.11 goals per game this season. There have been 14 goals in Pendikspor’s last 4 away games, and 11 goals in Rizespor’s last 4 home games. Both sides will push for a win here and we expect plenty of chances and goals.

Ponferradina v Burgos

Burgos or draw

Ponferradina host Burgos Monday evening in this Segunda División clash. The home side are stuck in a relegation battle currently whilst Burgos are 3 points from the automatic promotion places with a game in hand and superior goal difference. There are never many goals in Burgos games, with only 6 goals in all 8 away league games this season, conceding just 2. They have conceded 6 in 17 league games this season and are a very difficult side to break down. Meanwhile Ponferradina average 1 goal scored per game. We cannot see Burgos losing here but happy to take the double chance to cover the bore draw.

Pescara v Taranto Sport

Pescara to win

Pescara are great value to win here as part of an acca at 4/9. A very strong home side averaging 2 points per game, hosting a relegation threatened Taranto Sport who have picked up just 1 point on the road so far this season, scoring just 3 and conceding 19. Taranto have won just 1 of their previous 11 head to heads.
