World Cup 2018 Betting – Latest World Cup Betting Offers
With under a year until the finals of World Cup 2018, it’s still very early days yet as far as World Cup 2018 betting offers are concerned. World Cup 2018 play-offs are still taking place meaning there are still a few places up for grabs. Thankfully, England have already booked their place in Russia after yet another strong performance in qualifiers.
Enhanced odds will be out there on every World Cup 2018 match when the time comes meaning lots of opportunities to be paid out at preferential odds. World Cup 2018 betting with enhanced odds could prove to be hugely lucrative, as any wining bet will secure you a considerably bigger payout than usual thanks to those enhanced odds.
For example, when England played their old rivals Scotland in their World Cup 2018 qualifying match back in November 2016, you could have got 28/1 on an England victory with Coral’s enhanced odds (England won 3-0 for anyone who needs reminding).
There was also a rather farcical 3/1 on Germany (World Cup holders no less) to beat the minnows of San Marino with Betfair. Just the 8-0 in that one.
That said, in the name of transparency and honesty, it’s worth pointing out that you will be limited to small stakes (sometimes just a quid) on such promotions and any winnings are paid out as free bets.
But that’s still plenty of extra betting money available to you.
World Cup 2018 Betting Odds
Get up to the minute World Cup 2018 betting odds from our top bookies here, and keep reading for our expert’s updates on the main World Cup contenders, with the best prices available.
As things stand, World Cup 2018 betting odds have defending champions Germany as favourites to retain the trophy at 6/1 with a Paddy Power free bet.
A resurgent Brazil with the world’s most expensive footballer Neymar as their talisman, are generally second favourites at around 7/1 which might be worth an interest. We then have France and Spain similarly priced somewhere between 7/1 and 9/1 marks but don’t discount Belgium at 14/1. Their side is packed with Premier League-based talent like Lukaku, de Bruyne, Hazard and Courtois and are showing signs of getting better with each tournament that passes.
Host nation Russia are a best priced 40/1 which you can get with a BetVictor free bet, but they really don’t warrant any serious interest based on the current state of their national team.
For those who enjoy backing their own country for glory, England’s current World Cup odds are around 22/1. Attractive given their recent results, less so in light of their last few performances at major tournaments. They really should have beaten Iceland last time out…
The two Irelands are in the playoffs and if you fancy an upset of epic proportions, now is the time to back them.
World Cup odds will change to varying degrees as teams confirm their places in Russia, but the main movements in odds will take place once the draw for the group stage is made, on 1st December 2017.
There’s always a ’Group of Death’ from which one of the leading contenders will be destined to make an early exit. That’s just the nature of the beast.
World Cup Winners
The World Cup final of 2018 will be held at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow on 15 July, after which one team will add their name to the history books as a World Cup winner, so joining an illustrious list:
World Cup 2014 winners: Germany
World Cup 2010 Winners: Spain
World Cup 2006 Winners: Italy
World Cup 2002 Winners: Brazil
World Cup 1998 Winners: France
World Cup 1994 Winners: Brazil
World Cup 1990 Winners: West Germany
World Cup 1986 Winners: Argentina
World Cup 1982 Winners: Italy
World Cup 1978 Winners: Argentina
World Cup 1974 Winners: West Germany
World Cup 1970 Winners: Brazil
World Cup 1966 Winners: England
World Cup 1962 Winners: Brazil
World Cup 1958 Winners: Brazil
World Cup 1954 Winners: West Germany
World Cup 1950 Winners: Uruguay
World Cup 1938 Winners: Italy
World Cup 1934 Winners: Italy
World Cup 1930 Winners: Uruguay
It’s funny how players and coaches come and go, tactics change and occasionally, so do the rules. But the most successful sides in World Cup history are there time and time again as favourites.
Five-time winners Brazil, the most successful side in history, are the third-favourites and will be relying on the attacking trio of Neymar, Gabriel Jesus and Philippe Coutinho for inspiration. Germany, who have won it on four occasions (including as West Germany) can never be discounted ether and their high-energy pressing might be suited to Russian conditions. With former winners France and Spain also amongst the shortest in the betting, it’s obvious World Cup pedigree counts for a lot in this competition.
