We’re just days away from the 2018 World Cup, with Brazil set to go off as favourites after several thousand bets were placed on the Samba Stars.
Bet365 now go 4/1 about Brazil winning their sixth World Cup, with Tite’s team looking an imposing force considering they have a fit Neymar back among the ranks, while Gabriel Jesus, Philippe Coutinho and Fernandinho are also commanding figures within the team.
It appears that the Brazilians will go off as favourites, with Germany next at 9/2 and we should expect Die Mannschaft to feature at the business end of the tournament as usual. The Germans are another squad of players who qualified with ease and Joachim Low was able to leave out Leroy Sane from the squad.
Spain are next in the betting at 6/1, with La Roja being tipped by several shrewd punters although they have a difficult opener against Portugal and then sticky matches against Morocco and Iran.
France make up the “Big Four” and Les Bleus can lay claim to an array of attacking talent, with Didier Deschamps’ side trading at 13/2, with Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe able to cause mayhem among opposition defences.
Argentina look like a strange team despite the presence of Lionel Messi and they are a 9/1 chance, with Belgium available at 11/1 and Roberto Martinez can call upon some excellent players.
England are now a 16/1 chance and the Three Lions will be optimistic of going through from Group G and making the last eight of the competition.
