Russia and Saudi Arabia got the World Cup underway but Friday's fixtures promise plenty more action.
With three matches across the day culminating in the Group B clash between Portugal and Spain, punters will be spoilt for choice in terms of their potential wagers.
dabblebet have boosted the price on over 6.5 goals being scored across the trio of group stage contests at Evens (2.00). This market will be settled as a winner if there are seven or more strikes in the three games combined.
The action gets underway with Uruguay facing Egypt who look set to welcome back Mohamed Salah. The Liverpool forward was in incredible form at the end of the campaign, netting 32 times in the Premier League.
Given that the South Americans boast a forward line of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez, it would be no surprise if the Group A match is a high-scoring affair and kick-started the goal tally.
Morocco and Iran then get underway in Group B. While a low-scoring match is expected by the bookmakers, both sides will be aware that they face an uphill battle to qualify for the knockout stages.
Given the other two nations the underdogs are to meet in Russia, three points for either team could be vital. With that in mind punters could be set for a much more attacking encounter than otherwise expected.
Finally, Spain and Portugal meet in Sochi in a match littered with attacking talent.
Cristiano Ronaldo will lead the charge for the European champions but La Roja boast a wealth of attacking options including Diego Costa, Isco, David Silva and Marco Asensio.
The two teams combined for 68 goals in European qualification, breezing through their respecitve groups and this hotly anticipated all-Iberian affair could be one of the highlights of the tournament as a whole, let alone the first matchday.
A tally of seven or more goals looks a fair bet at Evens (2.00) with dabblebet. This is a market that's open to all customers, not just new ones and any returns will be paid in cash, not free bets.
