World Cup Soccer Predictions


The Predictor was designed to use computer estimates from the Inference Index to predict future World Cup soccer games. The Predictor does NOT account for injuries, or any other factors that may be cause the outcome to be swayed in one direction or another. See my disclaimer page for more on the benefits/downfalls about these predictions: Predictions Disclaimer

Also note, that the Predictor should be used for entertainment purposes only. However, if you do wish to gamble (at your own risk), then I highly suggest reading my blog post: The Top 5 Online Sportsbooks for U.S. Players.

All upcoming World Cup money line predictions are listed below along with the Index’s picks for the odds to win each of the World Cup games straight-up (SU).

For the current odds to advance for each team, see:
For our UEFA World Cup projections, see: UEFA World Cup Qualifying Projections.
For our CONCACAF World Cup projections, see: CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying Projections.
For our CONMEBOL World Cup projections, see: CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying Projections.
