Day 2 of our World Cup Free picks saw a scatter of different results and nearly all of them swung late. Egypt blew a late draw to Uruguay with Mo Salah watching from the bench. The Portuguese couldn’t defend well enough to beat Spain as the Iberians drew 3-3 with their neighbors despite a hat trick from Christiano Ronaldo. Our lone victory came at nearly 3 to 1 with Iran knocking off Morocco. We finished right around .500 on the day and look to improve today with two best bet World Cup fixtures on Day 3.

For today’s World Cup picks and parlays, we take a look at Denmark vs. Peru and Croatia vs Nigeria. Let’s hop right in.
Eriksen and Denmark have high hopes for advancing out of Group C.
This Denmark squad is for real and is anchored by Christian Eriksen. Forget Harry Kane, this Tottenham man is playing on another level for both club and country and his efforts have Denmark in a great position as they enter the group stage. He’s on another level, and like Mo Salah and Christiano Ronaldo, his presence changes his countries lineup. They’ll need that lineup changed for the better Saturday morning.
This contest won’t be a walkthrough for Denmark and they are barely favored by Vegas bookmakers as a result. They’re getting odds because this one is so finely perched and the draw is very much in play. The Peruvian squad lining up against the Danes is a strong one full of international talent and it’ll be more than up to the task in keeping this close. In terms of the result, this will likely decide the fate of who goes through in Group C.
If either of these countries are to fall short and not achieve the draw, a win against France will become necessary but unlikely to advance. It’s all but certain that France will advance given the generational talent on the current roster creating a must win scenario for a successful venture to the knockout stage.
Peru, while strong, has not been to the world cup stage since 1982. They made it by getting through a play off with New Zealand 2-0 and were one of the final teams locked in to the World Cup Field. They’ll be relying on their offense in this one with Edson Flores, Christian Cueva, and star Jefferson Farfan providing a bulk of the offensive chances. They’re capable of causing problems for any team, but they are up against it with how little support they’ll receive at the back against tougher competition. These Center Half’s are untested.
You’ll recognize a lot of the players on the Denmark roster and so will Peru’s defenders. Eriksen deserves your circling and Kvist provides good support in midfield. You’ll be impressed by Casper Schmeichel the longtime Leicester City Goalkeeper who is known to make flashy saves that change games. Kjaer anchors a backline that is regimented and ready to compete. A name that could emerge as a star in this world cup is Martin Braithwaite who could see time off the bench and be a game changer. The Bordeaux man offers a set of skill and pace that is rarely seen at the world football level. With a good tournament, he’s one you could see pick up some heat in the transfer window.
Nigerian youth comes of age in the 2018 World Cup.
Croatia vs Nigeria is an interesting competition if only because of how Vegas is responding to the fixture. Croatia are -133 which makes them a favorite, but not as big of one as you’d typically expect. Africa is 16-22-42 against Europe all time and the Croatians would seem to be the much more talented team on paper. The club features Real Madrid star Luka Modric as well as Ivan Rakitic, Ivan Perisic, and Dejan Lovren who you will likely recognize as a common fan.
Don’t doubt the Nigerians. They’re one of the most successful teams in African world play. Nigeria has produced 5 of Africa’s 16 wins against the European continent and will be hoping to add to the tally with this one.
This is the first time Nigeria has faced Croatia in world football. It’s also the first time that many of their 2015 Under 17 World Cup champions have come of age. One of those is striker Kelechi Iheanacho who plays for Leicester City. He has a buyback clause with Manchester City in the Premier league. Alex Iwoki and veterans John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses give Nigeria a very deep roster for the Nigerians (who have the coolest kits in the World Cup).
