Russia vs Saudi Arabia Betting Preview

At the time of writing, Russia are massive favourites to win the match at odds of 1/3, the draw is 4/1 and Saudi Arabia are 11/1 to shock the world and spoil the opening night party. Saudi Arabia are actually ranked one place higher than Russia in the current FIFA World Rankings, but they face the enviable task of kicking off their World Cup Group A campaign in the lions den, at home to the hosts.

In the correct score odds, Russia to win 1-0 is favorite at a very short 7/2. A 2-0 victory is priced at 9/2 and 2-1 is 9/1. If you think the hosts won’t get the three points then the 0-0 draw is 9/1 or 1-1 is the same odds. The shock Saudi Arabia 1-0 victory can be backed at odds of 21/1 or a 2-1 win is a massive 45/1.

Russia vs Saudi Arabia Predictions

This really could be a tight affair. There is not a chance I would be starting off our World Cup 2018 betting tips by predicting a Russia win at 1/3. The teams are ranked 63rd and 64th in the world and the pressure of hosting a tournament gets to even the best teams – remember France in Euro 2016?

Last summer Russia hosted the Confederations Cup and the hosts beat New Zealand 2-0 before losing to Portugal and Mexico. They’ve had some decent friendly results since then, beating South Korea 4-2 and drawing with Spain.

For my Russia vs Saudi Arabia predictions at the World Cup, the first bet I am predicting is under 1.5 goals. This means if there are no goals or just one goal, our bet is a winning one. The odds for this are 2/1 at Betfred. Both sides will not want to lose this match and that’s why I’m predicting a low scoring game.

If you want to have a correct score bet in this World Cup Group A opener, then there is nothing to put you off backing a 0-0 draw. It is bound to be a cagey affair with the Russians understandably nervous about letting their country down at the first stage. This is the easiest match of their fixtures on paper so they will be under pressure to get a win. Saudi Arabia will be delighted with a draw. The odds for the 0-0 score are and that’s the second of our Russia vs Saudi Arabia predictions for this first World Cup 2018 fixture.

Russia vs Saudi Arabia Head to head

Russia and Saudi Arabai have faced each other just once, with the World Cup hosts losing a friendly 4-2 back in 1993.
