Understanding World Cup Team Stats

FIFA World Cup squads get no points for a loss, one point for a draw and three points for a win in the Group Stage. World Cup stats by team are widely available, especially in the standings and individual game recaps. Some of the most common stats are goals/goals against, points, goal difference, possession and shots. 

Goal difference is one of the most important of the bunch. It’s calculated by subtracting the goals a team allows from the goals it scores. GD comes into play in the World Cup knockout stage race as it’s the initial tiebreaker when two or more teams have the same number of points through three games. 

There’s no shortage of soccer team stats relevant for betting. Teams who keep a lot of clean sheets are typically solid defensively and unders may be more likely as a result. Yellow and red cards should also be tracked for suspension reasons. Check out the latest FIFA World Cup news and betting analysis.
