A champion will be crowned when France battles Croatia in the 2018 World Cup final on Sunday at 11 a.m. ET. Sportsbooks list France as a -110 money line favorite (after 90 minutes of play), meaning you'd need to wager $110 on a France victory to win $100. Croatia is going off at +360, while a draw returns +225. To simply bet on which team wins, France is -210 and Croatia is +175. The Over-Under for total goals scored is 2.
Before placing any bet, you need to see who European football expert David Sumpter is picking. Sumpter is an applied mathematician and author of "Soccermatics," a book that explains how math works inside the sport. Along with other experienced analysts, Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.
Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In nearly three seasons since its inception, Soccerbot is up an incredible 1,800 percent on bookmakers' closing odds.
The model is crushing the World Cup knockout stage. It strongly recommended Croatia as an underdog at +135 against England in the semis. The result: Croatia stamped its ticket to the final with a thrilling 2-1 victory.
It correctly predicted draws in regulation for Spain-Russia (+280), Croatia-Denmark (+225) and England-Colombia (+215) and was all over France beating Uruguay in regulation to reach the semifinals, not to mention Brazil and Belgium cruising in their Round of 16 matchups. Earlier, the model nailed draws for Argentina-Iceland (+385) and Brazil-Switzerland (+360) and predicted Iran upsetting Morocco at +275, just to name a few of its big calls. Anyone who has followed it is way, way up.
The Soccerbot has a STRONG money-line play locked in for France-Croatia. Anyone who backs it could hit it BIG.
