Default **WC POD 14/06/2018**

So it finally starts!
I am opening this thread earlier today, so that we can give it a good start. Here are main rules, you will find others here:

http://forum.bettingadvice.com/showthread.php?t=110009

Price booty will be a bit higher than for regular POD, 1st place will be awarded with 150 EUR, second place with 100 EUR and third place will bring 50 EUR!

Here are the rules:

The Competition

The competition has the purpose to gather the best bets of a certain day of WC 2018. It's for fun, but the competition can also be a good place for tipsters to find picks quicker than browsing all pages. You can place your Pick of the day and score points if it satisfies the conditions that are stated below. The competition lasts one month and in that period, a contestant must give exactly 8 picks. YOU CAN ENTER THE COMPETITION UNTIL IT IS POSSIBLE TO PICK EIGHT POD-s. It means, entering competition after only 7 days of the WC left, is not possible. Every missing pick till 8 at the end of the month will be punished with -100 points per missing pick.
You must be a registered user of this forum to participate. You must have a unique IP address, not more than one competitor can use the same address.
Odds must be between 1.50 and 3.50 and only odds taken from these 3 bookmakers are allowed:

Bet365
Pinnacle
SBOBet


You must write arguments for your pick or at least give a link to a prediction on BA main page, written by yourself.
About the conditions

You can only give one pick per day. Your pick must be different to all other placed picks, but you can back another team/player in the same game as someone else has taken. For your pick to count, it must be posted at least 1 hour before the event starts.

You cannot back the same team/player as someone else even if you take a different bet type (for example handicap bet, different game total etc.). But this rule applies only for quarterfinals/semifinals/finals of the WC!!! In the group phase of WC and in 1/8 finals you can take picks that were already taken by other users!!!

You can take these bet types (but only inside allowed odds from 1,50 to 3,50!):

-Asian handicap bets (final or HT)
-European handicap bets (final or HT)
-Over/Under bets (Game total) (final or HT)
-Home/Draw/Away bets (final or HT)
-Double Chance (1X,12,X2)
-Both teams to score (Yes/No)
-Half time/Full time
-Player to score (anytime scorer, first scorer)
-Number of corners (final or HT)
-Number of cards
-First team to score (Yes/No)
-Second team to score (Yes/No)
-number of goals scored team 1/team 2


You must write the correct bookie and correct odds in the time of your posting.

Scoring

A pick that was wrong will cost you 100 points. When you've made a correct pick, and it satisfied the conditions, you will gain 100 (Odds-1) points. For example, a successful pick @ 1.85 will give you 85 points. This is the net profit if you had staked 100 units. Asian Handicaps will be calculated accoringly to the net profit. It is not allowed to pick odds below 1,50 and above 3,50.
The contestant that scores the highest number of points with 8 picks, will win the monthly competition. In case he fails to give 8 picks, 100p-for every missing pick- will be deducted from his score.
To win Special WC POD you MUST make 8 bets ! Hopefully we will have time to update the standings everyday, but there may be some delays from time to time.

Good luck to all!!!!!

Pick #1
So far 0/0/0

Russia v Saudi Arabia, take Over 2,5 goals @2,35 Pinnacle

Well, finally it is here: World Cup.
A lot was said about this match, Russians of course are favoured and honestly if they don`t win this they can not hope for the second stage. On the other side, we saw Saudis against Germany, they are very interesting in front, their players are used to play attacking football but behind they are terrible.
So, what we should see here is Russia with better defence and solid attack, playing an open match against leaky Saudis.
Statistics is also interesting, all the last 10 games Saudi Arabia played yielded at least 2 goals. Last three in preparations were all overs. As said, it was visible their defence is poor, but they have technical players in front that can score easily.
Russia on the other side, played very tough friendlies in recent months, their defence suffered, attack was so-so, but as said they will play against defence which they simply must penetrate. A lot of space, always.
My call is 3-1!
GL
5-0 Pick won!

Pick 1
Russia vs Saudi Arabia
Pick: HT / FT (X-1)
Odds: 3.50
Bookie: bet365

Finally, the World Cup. Group A. The hosts are a big favorite in this match. Of course, the whole world will try to make a small odd 1.40-1.45 for hosts. No doubt, they will try to show their first skill in the first match. However, they will be under great pressure. This is the first game, and it's very often that both sides are very careful. Nevertheless, Group A is actually very interesting and in some ways very difficult. Uruguay and Egypt can count on one of the first two places at the top of the table. So, hosts will try to pick up all three points in this game and they will not calculate. Of course, it will not be an easy job. Luzhniki Arena will be filled, and the hosts will have strong support.
On the other hand, S. Arabia is the average team. Of course, they will give maximum resistance to this match. In the past five games, in the warm up phase, they had solid results against relatively strong teams such as Germany, Italy, Peru, Greece and Algeria. In any case, Al Shehri, Al Al Jassim can be very unpredictable, and they are able to score a goal.
All in all, I expect a very tense match with lots of neuroses on both sides. Visitors will try to stay without a ball in the net in the 1st Half. But, they should fall into the 2nd Half.
GL!
2-0, 5-0 Pick lost!

#1
Russia - Saudi Arabia

Over 3.0 goals @ 3.30 (bet365)


Well if Russia can't score multiple goals against Saudi Arabia then they can exit the tournament immediately....this is their chance to play against poor and weak defensive team from Arabia and score 3-4 goals against them. Russia are hosts of this tournament and they can give their fans something to look forward to with a nice, big win in the opening game and round.

Saudi Arabia obviously are big underdogs so they should go for goals themselves because Russia been struggling in football for years, they don't have strong names, strong players on some position or any starts and most importantly, they don't have good defense.

I think that score like 3:1 is very possible for Russia, they simply must win this first game and WC opening against such poor opponent. Good opportunity to get first 3 points, confidence and good goal ratio. Arabia have nothing to lose and they can strike back.
5-0 Pick won!

Pick #1
Russia - saudi Arabia
draw at halftime
bookie: bet365@2,20 odds

We have here the openingsmatch of wc 2018
Yes Russia is here the clear favorite but i expect Saudi Arabia to defend
and they will do against Russia as well
Russia can do it ofcourse but as most openingsmatches it will be alot of nerves and wasted oppurtunities
0-0 at HT is very possible(i think 80% possibility)
so therefore go for the draw at halftime
2-0 Pick lost!
