GERMANY vs. SWEDEN – FIFA World Cup Preview,
Odds and Picks 6/23/18

The tilt between Germany and Sweden will be played at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi on June 23rd. The Blue-Yellow didn’t impress in the game with South Korea but they got what they needed and that’s three points, while Die Mannschaft was stunned by the resilient Mexicans who cause one of the biggest shocks at the World Cup thus far with a minimum win.

Germany vs. Sweden

Three-Way: 1: Germany -200; X: +350 Draw; 2: Sweden +650

Spread -1: Germany -111; Sweden +102

Total 2.5 goals: Over -110; Under -110


The Germans were the big favorites at -200 to beat Mexico, but the Tricolor showed more desire and willingness to get three points, which they did with an excellent solo move from Hirving Lozano in the 35th minute. Germany tried everything to score and Toni Kroos hit the crossbar only three minutes later, while every other shot on target, nine overall, couldn’t get past a fantastic Guillermo Ochoa, so Joachim Löw’s side was left empty-handed.


The Blue-Yellow was a better team in a clash with uninspiring South Koreans who failed to attempt a single shot on target, while the Swedes patiently waited for their chance and troubled the Asians from set-pieces. Marcus Berg had a couple of opportunities in the first half that ended scorelessly, but he was the one who forced a penalty kick in the 65th minute, and after the help from VAR, the referee awarded a penalty to the Swedes. The captain Andreas Granqvist didn’t have a problem to convert it and make it 1-0, which proved to be a final score, so if you backed Sweden at +125, you must be pleased with the money you made.

Match Prediction

The Germans are desperate for three points here, and although they could be alive with a draw between Mexico and South Korea or Mexico’s win and their draw with Sweden, I have no doubt that Die Mannschaft will play an attacking football from the very start. That’s why I am backing them to win with two goals difference and even in case they win by one, you will get your stake back.

The Pick: Germany AH – 1 (-111)

Match Prediction – Total Goals

Sweden will focus on the defense rather than attack the Germans, but if Germany scores an early goal, the situation would change entirely. Although the Swedes showed they can keep their net intact in two games against Italy in the playoffs, I don’t think that will be the case here and they could concede two or three, so backing over 2.5 goals at -110 might be a solid option to bet on.

The Pick: Over 2.5 goals (-110)
