Qatar vs Ecuador World Cup Prediction and Betting Picks
Ecuador has been in poor form lately, as they have drawn four of their last five games. Their only win came over Cape Verde Islands. Qatar, on the other hand, has won all of its last five matchups and is on a roll. Ecuador is better on paper than Qatar, but World Cup matchups often go against what’s on paper.
In 18 World Cups that have had the current group stage format, the host country has never lost its first game. While most of this is due to the World Cup being held in countries with good soccer teams, 18 games with no losses is no coincidence. The atmosphere will be buzzing and Qatar will be flying around the field from the opening whistle. While there is no guarantee they’ll win, it would be quite the anomaly for the host country to not at least tie. For that reason, feel safe picking Qatar to cover the spread.
Our Qatar vs Ecuador World Cup prediction tonight will be QATAR +0.5 at BetOnline.
