Today we will be taking a look at Japan’s World Cup odds and bets. We will take a look at the odds on Japan winning 2018 World Cup, — we know, not likely – as well as odds in a few other betting markets.
Japan have played at every World Cup since 1998 and have become a familiar country at the World Cup. They have reached the first knockout stage on two occasions, in the 2002 World Cup which they hosted with South Korea, and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
In this summer’s tournament they find themselves in a competitive group which includes Senegal, Colombia and Poland. Group H is arguably the tightest group in the competition. Japan are the underdogs in the group and they will probably struggle to qualify for the knockout stages. Still, the draw could definitely have been unkinder to them.
Japan World Cup 2018 Prediction
Japan kick off against Colombia on the 19th June which could be their toughest match of the group. Most people expect Colombia to win this match pretty comfortably and we agree. Next up is Senegal. This will probably be quite an evenly matched contest, and this is the match that the Japanese will be targeting to pick up points in.
Japan’s last game is against Poland on the 28th June. This will be another difficult match for Japan. The likes of Robert Lewandowski may prove to be too much for Japan to handle over ninety minutes. Japan will need to perform extremely well to get something from the game.
We predict that Colombia and Poland will progress from Group H. Unfortunately, Japan don’t appear to have the type of quality that is needed at this very high level.
