What kind of betting tips ca we recommend for Denmark’s matches at the World Cup 2018?
Given the tournament goes as expected the second place in Group C at the World Cup 2018 will be decided in a duel between Denmark and Peru. The bookie betfair has odds of 1.66 on Denmark making it to the knock out stage, which is slightly higher than the odds on a corresponding bet on the South Americans. The direct comparison of both teams will be the deciding factor in our opinion, but in this duel a tip on scored goals might be an interesting option for this duel at the World Cup 2018. While Peru was very dangerous on offense in the course of the qualification, Denmark always was able to rely on a steady defense on the way to the World Cup 2018. Therefore it’s quite possible that this that this match at the World Cup 2018 will be decided by one single goal. The bookmakers at Tipico also believe that this is a quite probable scenario: Odds on less than 1.5 goals in the match Denmark versus Peru are lucrative 2.8 there and they promise high chances of winning.
With only 8 received goals during the qualification the Danes make for some more exciting betting options on received goals at the World Cup 2018. Especially against the lame offense of Australia Intertops has a remarkable betting opportunity with odds of 2.10 on Denmark keeping a white vest. This is not only due to the fact that the “Socceroos” need to rely on the principle hope and that they will probably not be able to make Denmark’s strong defense struggle at the World Cup 2018. Additionally one shouldn’t rule out a classic 1-X-2 bet on a Denmark victory in this match, which has odds of 1.80 at Bethard. Last but not least we want to present a daring tip with participation of Denmark for risky bettors at the World Cup 2018: bet-at-home lists a Denmark win against title favorite with odds of 5.5. Such a victory will probably only be possible, if France has a bad day.

Which roster does Denmark send to the World Cup 2018 in Russia?
The Danish national team, which is also called “Danish Dynamite” wants to justify its nickname at its fifth World Cup final round participation and provide some explosive performances, after only being a spectator of the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. After long-time success coach Morten Olsen stepped down, new head coach and former Malmö Coach Age Hareide was able to provide the team with a new spirit and the roster underwent some overdue changes. Hareide is now able to rely on a promising roster in the group stage that has a good mix of young wild players and successful experienced players. Many names on the Danish roster are known from Europe’s top leagues: Players like Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur), Simon Kjaer (FC Sevilla) and Jannik Vestergaard (Borussia Mönchengladbach) have been able to establish themselves at international top addresses and are to right pillars of their respective club teams.
The Danish player pool is complemented with hopeful young talents like Andreas Christensen, Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg or Pione Sisto, that are continuously gaining experience in Europe’s top leagues. In the case of Chelsea defender Christensen they even already take a lot of responsibility too.
Against which teams was Denmark able to prevail in the course of the qualification for the World Cup 2018?
The World Cup odds of numerous bookies list Denmark as the most probable group second and according to our analysis this listing is justified after impressive performances in the qualification: In an unpleasant qualification group with Poland, Montenegro and Romania Hareide’s team was able to finish second behind a strong Polish team around Robert Lewandowski. Denmark later succeeded over Ireland in the play off. Denmark’s biggest strength is their defense. They only received a total of 8 goals in the course of the qualification.
With captain Simon Kjaer from FC Sevilla and Andreas Christensen from Chelsea on inside defense parts of the Danish defense read like a “Who is Who” of the defensive lines of international top clubs. Even Bayern star Robert Lewandowski struggled, when Denmark beat Poland 4:0 in the retour match of the qualification round for the World Cup 2018. In this match Denmark’s offense also performed very well. Given a “form high”, one can expect some surprises from the “Danish Dynamite”. So Denmark should be able to provide some explosive power for certain betting tips at the World Cup 2018. Some people even mention Denmark as a secret title favorite. Recently Portugal proved at the EURO 2016 that a disciplined defensive performance may be sufficient for such a mission.
How did Denmark do at past World Cups?
Denmark already participated in four World Cup final rounds. Making it to the quarter final in 1998 was Denmark’s biggest World Cup success so far. There the “Danish Dynamite” barely got eliminated by the later finalist Brazil. Denmark was able to win one title at great events in the past, however: In 1992 the Danish national team won the European Championship for the first time in history.
