Japan and Senegal face off in in their second 2018 World Cup match on Sunday at 11 a.m. ET. Both squads will be looking for the full three points to advance out of Group H, which also features Colombia and Poland. Favored Senegal is posted at +125, meaning you would need to wager $100 on a Senegalese victory to gain a $125 profit. Japan is +250, while a draw is +215. The Over-Under on total goals scored in this 2018 World Cup match is 2.
Before you enter your 2018 World Cup picks, you have to see what European football expert David Sumpter has to say. Sumpter is an applied mathematician who wrote "Soccermatics," a book that explains how math works inside the sport. Together with other experienced analysts, Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.
The Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In nearly three seasons since its inception, the Soccerbot is up an incredible 1,800 percent on bookmakers' closing odds.
Now, Soccerbot has digested the film, crunched the numbers and broken down every single player on Japan and Senegal's rosters. The model has released a very strong money-line pick, which it's sharing over at SportsLine.

The Soccerbot has already crushed Russia 2018, including calling a draw between Argentina and Iceland (+360), nailing the 2-0 final score of Brazil vs. Costa Rica, and selecting Iran (+275) to knock off Morocco, just to name a few of its big calls.
The model knows the Japanese took the action righ t to the Colombians in their opener, possessing the ball for 58 percent of the match and firing 14 shots. Shinji Kagawa and Yuya Osako both tallied goals in Japan's 2-1 upset victory.
In order to advance to the 2018 World Cup knockout stage from a competitive group, Japan will need to play more stringently on defense. Despite being a man up virtually the entire match, the Japanese conceded a first-half score to Colombia.
The model also knows Senegal is led by 26-year-old striker Sadio Mane, the dynamic Liverpool star who has tallied 23 goals in his two seasons of Premier League action. While the Senegalese were lucky to pick up an own-goal and questionable breakaway score against Poland in its 2-1 upset win, they also have sniper Moussa Konate, who's deadly from close range.
So which hungry nation wins Sunday? Or will it end in a draw? Visit SportsLine now to see the strong Japan-Senegal money-line pick, all from a European football expert whose powe rful model is up 1,800 percent in less than three years.
