World Cup 2018 predictions are live for every team still eligible to qualify! We will update this page throughout the qualifying process as teams are eliminated, quality, and everything in between. We will look at each confederation, categorize every single team, and keep a running “FINAL 32” of projected finalists. Let’s go.
World Cup 2018 Predictions last updated: March 22, 2017
Group A looks like 3 teams for two spots. Korea Republic, Iran, and Uzbekistan are all in it, while Qatar and Syria could be in some trouble. China is just about finished.
Australia has stumbled a bit with Saudi Arabia steadily on the climb. Japan not clear yet, but they still look OK. Iraq and Thailand are all but cooked.
Congo DR and Tunisia look like they’ll battle til the end in Group A
Group B is by far the strongest group. We favor Nigeria, but AFCON Champs Cameroon will have something to say about that.
Ivory Coast and Morocco are both very strong teams in Group C. While the Ivorians are the favorites, it’s gonna be fun.
South Africa, Senegal, and Burkina Faso are all going to keep this wide open group interesting.
After an impressive showing, it’s Egypt’s to lose at this point.
Dreadful start for the USA. There’s a lot of competition here. Trinidad looks like they are a longshot, but the other 5 certainly can reach the World Cup. The Hex is about to heat up.
It’s been a roller coaster in CONMEBOL. Brazil are all but in, and Uruguay should follow closely. Chile has finally righted the ship at the expense of Colombia. Should be 4 teams for 3 spots at this point.
One of 6 teams will reach the playoffs. It looks like New Zealand, but it’s certainly not settled.
New Zealand: 56.0%
Papua New Guinea: 12.8%
New Caledonia: 11.2%
Solomon Islands: 0.9%
Group A is France’s to lose. The Dutch could put some heat on them, but Les Bleus are the team to beat.
Will be very interesting between Switzerland and Portugal. Huge win to start the campaign. Hungary could be in the mix.
Germany is practically in. Should be tight for 2nd with Northern Ireland and Czech Republic
Ireland, Wales, Austria and Serbia are all in play for top spot, but Ireland currently has the edge.
Poland has a massive advantage and is right behind Germany with highest odds. But great battle between Denmark, Montenegro, and Romania.
England also is in cruise control. Slovakia, Slovenia, and Scotland are all still in OK shape.
Italy is good, but Spain has the edge at the moment. It’s clearly one of the two.
Belgium has seized control of Group H. Greece appears to have risen to challenge Bosnia.
The closest group top to bottom. Turkey, Croatia, Ukraine, and Iceland are all good teams. They all have a shot.
The World Cup 2018 odds are up. It’s time for our final 32, including hosts Russia (1)
