With the knockout stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup about to kick off, there are some important things to keep in mind when betting, the most important of which is that OT rules do apply.

Dave Mason of BetOnline:

Plenty of newbie soccer bettors getting down on the #WorldCup. Remember - now that we are at the Knockout Stage, the spread, 3-way ML and totals are graded based on score at end of regulation. OT doesnt count.

We are likely to see one or two matches ended up in overtime.  While most books follow the above rule, some might not, so it is important to verify with the site you placed your wager with.  Most OT bets are offered as individual prop wagers.
