Croatia vs Canada Betting Lines
Experienced side in Croatia
Before the start of the Cup, Croatia were tabbed to go to the round 16, alongside Belgium, They did enter playing quite well. Placed in a Nations League group with Denmark, France and Austria, Croatia had four wins in six games while finishing first, securing a spot in the semifinals.
A finalist at the 2018 World Cup, Croatia did begin their campaign with an uninspiring goalless draw against Morocco, Now, they could find themselves shocked by an energetic Canadian side Sunday. The Croats were surprisingly toothless in the final third. They lacked ideas and only had a single proper opportunity throughout the 90 minutes of play. Croatia didn’t allow the Moroccans to get much at the opposite end, either. It was a mediocre performance.
Nikola Vlasic is unlikely to be featured against Canada. He limped off with an injury in the Cup opener. Ivan Perisic’s long-range shooting makes him a threat to the opposition, and the Spurs’ star came close to breaking the deadlock against Morocco. They’re the better team “on paper,” and the more experienced side as well. We can’t trust them sufficiently to include them in our soccer picks and parlays

Skilled side in Canada
Canada stunned the world of football, topping the CONCACAF section and making just their second Cup. Englishman John Herdman led them to this achievement, and they also possess other great players such as Bayern Munich‘s Alphonso Davies, Lille’s Jonathan David, Club Brugge’s Tajon Buchanan and Toronto FC’s Richie Laryea.
This group could well go down to the wire, especially with Canada looking capable of ruffling a few feathers in their first appearance at a World Cup since 1986. Despite 22 shots at goal, Canada couldn’t find a way past Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois. Despite losing, 1-0, their performance was impressive, and will fancy their chances against Croatia.
In the shot count against the No. 2-ranked Belgians, it was Canada, 22-9, They missed a first-half penalty, and had two very credible penalty shots waved off by the referee. They had frantic energy in their attack which made Belgium’s life very uncomfortable. They may repeat that against Croatia, but they seemed deflated in the second half. If you’re betting online, expect them to find the back of the net in Sunday’s match.

Croatia vs Canada Picks & Prediction
- Worth the Moneyline?
Croats failed to impress in the Group F opener, creating no more than one goal-scoring opportunity. They’re still seen as slim favorites to beat Canada in Doha, priced at +110 on the three-way moneyline, according to the latest soccer odds. Canada are priced at +265. It’s must-win on both sides, so they’ll both have an attacking approach. Given the way Canada performed on matchday 1, expect the side to earn at least one point. Back the draw at +235.
- Worth the Spread?
The value is on Canada to cover the +½ spread. Deserving of at least a draw against Belgium, they did make a good impression in a losing effort. More than capable of hanging around with Croatia. If the Canadians can replicate the daring approach that so nearly paid off against Belgium, perhaps they can beat the Croats. We’re not going that far.
- Worth the Totals?
Both haven’t scored their first goal in the tournament, and will definitely be fully focused on taking as much as possible. It would be surprising if one side stayed passive here, as they both need the points. Goal line is set at 2½. Expect this clash to have at least three goals on the scoresheet, at +115.
