Cape Town - The 2018 Soccer World Cup has already gripped the imagination of the nation. 

The football might be taking part halfway across the globe, but the Russia tournament is dishing up high octane football and surprise results.

And we’re not even finished the first round of group matches!

BET.co.za brand ambassador Jimmy Tau has been watching and he’s put together his ‘Tau’s Tips’ for the next nine games. 

Let’s see what he’s got to offer.

Tau’s Tuesday Tip

Draw (Colombia v Japan) x Senegal x Russia | Was 21.30 | Now 27.00

Jimmy interestingly opts for a draw in the Colombia v Japan game which kicks off today’s games.  He’s even calling a 1-1 draw if you’d like to get on his correct score bet. The big call of the day is Senegal to beat the fancied Poland. Finally he’s calling Russia to back up their bright start to the tournament by beating Egypt in the final game of the day.  

The inclusion of the Senegalese underdogs sees attractive odds of 27/1 on offer for this treble!

Tau’s Wednesday Tip

Portugal x Uruguay x Spain all to win by 2 or more goals | Was 5.62 | Now 7.00

Jimmy’s Wednesday tips are slightly more straightforward with heavy favourites to the fore. If you just took a treble on Portugal to beat Morocco, Uruguay to beat Saudi Arabia and Spain to beat Iran you’d be looking at very short odds. 

That’s why Jimmy has opted to go for all those teams to win by at least two goals to make this BET Boost pay. Expect some big scores on Wednesday and cheer home the goals and this 7/1 tip.

Tau’s Thursday Tip

Denmark x France x Argentina all to win | Was 3.95 | Now 5.00

Jimmy’s playing it safe on Thursday with three favourites all to win. With a very kind boost from the BET.co.za team, you can get 5/1 about Denmark, France and Argentina to pull off a treble.
