Football Accumulator Tips: 25/1 Four fold for Day Three at the World Cup
The first day of the 2022 World Cup with a full book of four games comes our way on Tuesday, with a quartet of intriguing encounters set to take place from Groups C and D. Big hitters Argentina kick things off against Saudi Arabia, while the last game of the day sees defending champions France begin their quest to go back-to-back with a game against Australia. Here at BettingOdds we've attempted to put together an Acca covering all four games, which pays out just over 25/1 at the time of writing with bet365...
Lautaro Martinez to score anytime - 6/5 - bet365
Argentina are one of the most fancied teams to lift the World Cup on December 18th and they should get off to a fast start here against a weak Saudi Arabian side. The Argentinians, two time world champions, always seem to bring a set of attacking players the envy of most of the footballing world to the World Cup and this year's group is certainly no exception.
Of course Lionel Messi is the star of the show, and is favourite for the Golden Ball award as the tournament's best player,. but he is by no means operating alone for the second favourites to lift the trophy. Expected to start up top with him in a formidable looking attack is Lautaro Martinez, the firecracker Inter striker who has been rumoured to be on the radar for all of Europe's top clubs for years.
Saudi Arabia could end up focussing too much on Messi and leaving space for his teammates in this game, and we think this can play into the hands of Martinez. At a shade over evens he is a cracking price to find the net anytime and is the first leg of our Tuesday four-fold.
Denmark to win to nil - 6/5 - bet365
The Danes are one of the most popular selections by fans and pundits alike as 'dark horses' to advance deeply into this tournament after an impressive performance at Euro 2020 and in the qualifying for Qatar. They boast established top level players such as Kasper Schmeichel, Simon Kjaer, Andreas Christensen and star man Christian Eriksen while the presence of Spurs enforcer Pierre-Emile Højbjerg adds steel as well as quality to the midfield.
Denmark are a well organised side and are heavy favourites to claim three points in this game against a solid but unspectacular Tunisian outfit. Sunderland fans may remember Wahbi Khazri, and indeed may be amazed he's still going, but his presence in the Tunisian attack shows their lack of options (cue a Kazri hat-trick and man of the match performance). Backing Denmark to win to nil pushes the odds up considerably compared to just backing them to win and we think this is worth adding to our Tuesday Acca with bet365.
Robert Lewandowski to score anytime - 2/1 - bet365
He may be the wrong side of 30 now, but Robert Lewandowski is still one of the elite strikers in world football. Barcelona's latest star recruit has picked up where he left off at Bayern, with 13 goals in 14 La Liga games and 5 in 5 in the Champions League proving his class.
Poland are set up with one purpose and one purpose only, to feed Lewandowski. He is their all time top goalscorer, their talisman and a totemic figure in Polish sports. He will be on penalties, which is always a bonus at international tournaments, and although Mexico will put up a stern test and we are by no means confident the Poles will be victorious, Lewandowski's anytime scorer price when factoring in his record this season and through the years is too big to ignore.
Kylian Mbappe to score anytime - 5/6 - bet365
It seems a lifetime ago that Kylian Mbappe announced himself on the world stage with his frightening speed and fantastic finishing back in Russia in France's successful 2018 World Cup campaign. Since then the PSG striker / director of football / part owner and god knows what else has cemented himself in the conversation as one of the best players in all of football through some stunning goals for both club and country
The French star has lost popularity in a lot of quarters due to his seemingly poor attitude and huge new contract in Paris, but his quality is undoubted. Australia are regulars at World Cups in modern times but this looks one of the weaker squads they have brought to a tournament. Mbappe will be licking his lips at the prospect of terrorising some poor defenders and as one of the Golden Boot favourites will be eager to get his campaign off to a flyer. Backing him to find the back of the net completes our four-fold for Tuesday's action.
Best of luck if you're following these selections and as always, please gamble responsibly.
