Qualifying for the World Cup is hard, although for England, Spain, and Germany it doesn’t seem that way as they sit comfortably in qualification spots. European qualifying at times seems like a predetermined script where the big teams win enough games to qualify but surprises do happen and that is what betting on these games provide.

England and Germany won their first two games while Spain won and tied their opening two games. England will suit up against Poland in a difficult match at home, while Spain and Germany have it a bit easier with games against Kosovo and North Macedonia respectively.

At Fanduel the odds for these three games are overwhelmingly in favor of the traditional powers, so the key to betting on these games comes down to certain types of bets and parlays that will make it much more fun to watch.

How to bet on Germany, England, and Spain World Cup Qualifying matches

For England vs Poland the only real outright bet would be a straight win for Poland and at +1000 the polish team has the talent to get a win in England. Although without Robert Lewandowski that win looks unlikely. A draw at +430 could be an interesting bet as well as picking the correct score with a 2-0 England win pays out as high as +480 or England 2-1 +750.

For Germany, the odds are even more lopsided. A proper bet for this match is the correct score or over/under. A correct score of 4-0 pays as high as +700 or if you want to risk it a 6-0 result in favor of the Germans pays out a tempting +2700. The over/under of 3.5 is at +112, which could be a safe bet.

For Spain, the over/under of 3.5 is at +122. A correct score of over 3-0 win for Spain pays out +550, 4-0 +900, and 5-0 +1800 respectively. The key for these lopsided matches comes down betting on other options or live betting as the match progresses.
