Denmark v Australia Betting Tips
While Denmark look a pretty solid side the one question mark over them was whether or not they were going to be able to produce in front of goal. They got a 1-0 win over Peru in their opener at the 2018 World Cup and that was just their fourth goal in their last six games played. So under 2.5 goals for your Denmark v Australia betting tips have to be top of the list and that is at a price of 8/15 odds at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.). It’s hard to see them getting enough on the board to drive this above the goal line. Because this is expected to be a low scoring game it cuts down the options in the bet365 correct score market where a Denmark 1-0 is the shortest-priced option at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.) and we think that is an option well worth looking at.
Denmark have not conceded a single goal in their last six games although they were lucky to get away with a clean sheet against Peru. Keeper Kasper Schmeichel pulled off some good saves as they were carved open at times and Peru almost missed from the penalty spot. But they survived somehow and Denmark to win to nil is at 7/4 odds or you can snap a price up of 10/11 on them to get just get a clean sheet in the game* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.). With the three points in the bag from the first game, they don’t have to get crazy in this one and chase anything. They just need a good solid performance and a point at the end of the day wouldn’t likely be a bad result in terms of trying to qualify for the knockout phase. A win though would set them up for a big challenge for top spot against France in the final round of group stage matches.
Australia were unlucky not to have gotten a point out of France. They deserved one really for a really good showing in a game where they were given little chance. They capitalised on some poor French defending to get themselves a goal and then a VAR decision against them at the death gave France the win. But they stuck in there well, competed hard and will still have plenty of belief. However, that game will have taken quite a bit out of them which will make things difficult now going forward. Australia have won two of their last three games, beating the Czech Republic and Hungary in their final warm-up matches, and need a big upset in this one. They may well find the route to goal a tough thing to serve up against an organised Denmark side. For our Denmark v Australia betting tips we can see them coming up short, but there is some appeal in backing Australia to keep things tight and a Denmark to win by a one goal margin at bet365 is at 12/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.).
Denmark v Australia Head to Head

Who will win – Denmark v Australia Predictions
The concern about Denmark was over their lack of scoring threat and they were really troubled by Peru. This is likely going to be just as tight, but we can see the same thing happening again for the Danes, so our Denmark v Australia prediction is Denmark to win by a one-goal margin.
