  • About World Cup Picks at OLBG  

    OLBG has a wide variety of World Cup picks from a wide range of soccer tipsters.

    Unlike many websites that only provide one side of an argument when it comes to tipping on an event OLBG publish all the quality pick write-ups that are submitted on each event, whichever outcome they favour.

    This gives you the power to make an informed decision. You can read different angles and opinions about each outcome to decide what you want to wager on. 

    You can simply go with the outcome that has a higher percentage of picks in its favour or you can follow a particular tipster because you agree with their pick comment or are impressed by their tipping stats.

    OLBG believe in transparent picks and tipsters which is why for each tipster you can see how many profitable months they've had in the past 6 months.

    As well as their 6-month level stakes profit, their 6-month strike rate percentage and a variety of other statistical data in their profile. If you really like the look of a tipster you can even follow them and get alerts when they make a pick!

  • Who are the best World Cup tipsters?  

    The World Cup only lasts one month so that's a very short time period in which to determine who the best World Cup tipsters are.

    There are many great soccer tipsters on OLBG who have profitable records that go back seasons and they are very much expected to continue their fine form into the World Cup.

    Some of the criteria in picking the best World Cup wagers can differ slightly from domestic soccer but the core principles remain the same.

    Once again selecting a wager comes down to your preferences. Whether you want to follow the majority, a particular comment or tipster or a collection of tipsters who are all in favour of the same outcome.
