Denmark will try to maintain its perfect mark, and several other quality teams will be fighting for the top spots when 2022 FIFA World Cup European Qualifying continues with 13 matches on Tuesday. Denmark (5-0-0) rested most of its starters in a 1-0 victory against Faroe Islands on Saturday and will take on Israel at 2:45 p.m. ET. Russia faces Malta and Croatia has a tougher matchup with Slovenia as those teams battle for first place in Group H. Those are among the 12 matches at 2:45 p.m. ET, while Portugal kicks off Tuesday's UEFA World Cup Qualifying at noon against Azerbaijan as it tries to keep pace with Serbia at the top of Group A.
Denmark has outscored its opponents 17-0 and is the -400 favorite (risk $400 to win $100) in the latest 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying odds from Caesars Sportsbook, with second-place Israel the +750 underdog and a draw priced at +360.

Top 2022 FIFA World Cup European Qualifiers predictions
One of Green's best bets for Tuesday: The Croatia vs. Slovenia match will go under the 2.5 goal total (-143). The soccer expert knows that Croatia as currently constructed is built to play tight games. Star playmaker Luka Modric is out with a lingering groin injury, and longtime scoring threat Mario Mandzukic has retired. Croatia has scored more than one goal twice in its past eight matches, and Slovenia has done it just once in its last eight.
Slovenia has just four goals in qualifying and has conceded four in its five matches and comes in off a 1-0 victory against bottom-dweller Malta. "Croatia is involved in a lot of tense, low-scoring games," Green tells SportsLine, and he predicts "this is likely to be another slow burner."
Group H is shaping up as a close contest, so the teams could be comfortable sitting back and waiting for something to open up. Slovenia won the first qualifying meeting 1-0 on its home turf in March.
