Finally. It’s the World Cup Final and with it, 4 years of global bragging rights are just 90 mins away! And just like the semi-finals, the world is watching as the European’s battle it out for supremacy. Watch on as France and Croatia battle it out for the ultimate prize.
And of course, BetSharper is here to give you some free expert sports-betting advice. Read on to find out how you can play France vs Croatia Odds to predict the game outcome. And beat your bookmaker.
France vs Croatia Chance of Winning
Croatia went through Group D undefeated, a feat which also included a powerful 3-0 demolishing of Argentina. In the knockout phases, Croatia beat both Spain and hosts Russia in lengthy matches that needed both extra time and penalty kicks. The semi-final win over England also needed extra time. Their resolve is without question. But will those extra minutes on the pitch catch up with them in the Final?
And speaking of France, they had a low key progression through the group stages. But turned on the power in regular time wins over Argentina and Uruguay to setup a semi-final tie with neighbors Belgium. Compared to Croatia’s semi, the French had an all together less stressful Quarter Final tie. They edged out the Belgian’s in what was essentially an international derby match. This youthful French shows no signs of succumbing to the pressures of the big time. Could this be their year?
So how are the game stats looking?
If nothing else, the stats represent the amount of energy expanded over the knock out phases with the Croats requiring three extra time periods and two penalty shoot-out wins to make it to the final. Can Modric and co summon enough energy to make up the difference?
And what about the poor camera man!

I suspect selling those extreme closeups compensated him for the manhandling! Kudos to him for staying focussed on capturing world class sporting moments! And speaking of focus, we have a game to cover…..
France vs Croatia – The Banker
The Croats have had a wonderful World Cup and their determination to win and fitness levels cannot be questioned. However, they have burned 90 mins more game time on the pitch than France in the finals (not to mention 2 sets of stressful penalty kicks). The average age of their squad is 27.9 with main man Modric coming close to veteran status at 32 years.
Whereas France appear to be peaking at the right time. All their wins have come in regular time and they have the uncanny knack of tactically and physically doing enough to win. BetSharper expects France to have more gas in the tank. And with an average squad age of 26 (the third youngest) and top players like Mbappe at 19 (!), have more youthful energy on their side.
This is why BetSharper expects placing a bet on France to Win the World Cup should result in the best chance of a win.
And the most recent bookmaker odds on ‘France to Win the World Cup‘ seem to be giving away solid value. Placing a $10 bet on this banker, will return you $14.00.
For those looking to balance risk and reward, wagering as little as $10 can help you build your bankroll for upcoming sports. After all, football season is just around the corner!
France vs Croatia – The Money Maker
The Golden Boot is perhaps outside even the considerable talents of Mbappa and Griezmann, both have 3 goals to Harry Kane’s 6. However, the best teams have internal competition and both strikers will be looking to finish the tournament as France’s top scorer.
BetSharper has witnessed the coming of age for young Mbappe who already has the knack of scoring goals in the biggest of games. Just witness his double against Argentina as World Cup evidence for this.
BetSharper’s Money Maker prediction is for Mbappe to score the first goal. The most recent bookmaker odds on Mbappe to score first are giving great value. Placing a $10 bet on this outcome will net you $60!
$60 returns in your pocket, and 4 weeks of wonderful World Cup action helping to keep our summer full of sports, life is good:) Kudos for using your new source of sharp advice (BetSharper), to win big.
