World Cup Winner Betting
The current pre-tournament favourites to win the 2018 World Cup are Brazil and Germany with most bookies slightly favouring Brazil. Spain and France follow these two as 3rd and 4th favourite respectively. But are any of these teams worth betting on or is it worth looking for an outsider?
We’ve put together 3 World Cup winner predictions, each increasing with odds depending on how much of a longshot you feel like making. All odds are subject to change but were correct at the time of posting.
World Cup Winner Prediction 1 – The ‘Safe’ Bet
While some may look at the experience of Germany or the youth of France, we think it’s hard to look past the talent of the current Brazil squad. They should have no problem topping their group and no team will want to face them in the knockout rounds. Despite Brazil’s position as favourites – the odds of 9/2 which you can get with Betfair are well worth a bet.Bet Now
World Cup Winner Prediction 2 – The ‘Dark Horse’ Bet
Now, Argentina may not quite be a ‘dark horse’ but a look at the odds sees them overlooked at 9/1 – more than twice the price of favourites Brazil. When your strikers are Lionel Messi, Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain and Sergio Aguero, goals are almost guaranteed. The question lies with the defence as the talent in Argentina is rather top heavy at moment! Regardless, we think Argentina at 9/1 is fantastic value for a bet!Bet Now
World Cup Winner Prediction 3 – The ‘Outsiders’ Bet
Our longshot for the World Cup winner 2018 is Croatia, and when you take a look at their squad it’s easy to see why! With a midfield consisting of Real Madrid’s Modric and Kovacic combined with the likes of Rakitic, Perisic and Mandzukic, they will be able to compete with any team going forward. With odds as high as 33/1 with Betfair, it’s definitely worth a punt!Bet Now
World Cup Top Goalscorer Tips
It will surprise no one that Lionel Messi is every bookies favourite for the World Cup top goalscorer but it might surprise some to not see Cristiano Ronaldo close behind in second place. In actual fact there are 2 players in between the 2 titans of World football in Neymar and Griezmann. We’ve taken a look at where we think the value lies in the World Cup top goalscorer market.
The top goalscorer market’s odds are dominated by Bet Victor who have the best price on almost all the favourites. We recommend using them for all our World Cup top goalscorer tips to get the best return – sign up here and get £40 free for the World Cup if you don’t already have a Bet Victor account.
World Cup Top Goalscorer Favourite
It may seem like a cop out to just choose the favourite but there are plenty of reason’s why Messi cannot be overlooked and that 9/1 is actually a very good price on him to claim the World Cup Golden Boot. Messi already has 5 World Cup goals to his name without ever really hitting top form at the tournament in previous years.
While other tournament favourites like Brazil and Germany tend to share the goals out – Messi is without doubt Argentina’s number 1 and therefore he’ll be taking free-kicks and penalties. This is probably Messi’s last chance to claim the International trophy that will cement his position as one of the greatest of all time, expect him to do everything he can to lead Argentina to glory.Bet Now
World Cup Top Goalscorer Outsider
Out of the next group of players, we think the best value lies with Romelu Lukaku leading the line in an extremely talented Belgium side. With the likes of Kevin De Bruyne playing him in, chances are sure to be free-flowing for Lukaku and he knows how to put them away.
Belgium also have the benefit of one of the easiest groups with Panama, Tunisia and England – they should have no problem getting through and should score plenty of goals in the process!Bet Now
World Cup Top Goalscorer Longshot
After the season he’s just had with Liverpool, no one should be ruling out Mo Salah to continue his goalscoring form in the World Cup – providing he’s fit of course. He doesn’t get called the ‘Egyptian King’ for no reason – his goals almost single-handedly fired Egypt to World Cup qualification.
The only issue with betting on Salah will be how far Egypt get in the tournament. They face a tough group with the likes of Uruguay and the hosts Russia and if they don’t make it through it leaves only 3 games for Salah to score in compared to 7 games for teams that reach the final. This being said – Salah was originally 66/1 with some bookies for Premier League top goalscorer and we all know how that turned out!Bet Now
