World Cup: Russia 2018 Betting

The FIFA World Cup 2018 starts on Thursday 14th June. 32 countries head to Russia to compete for the biggest prize in international football. So the world waits to watch the show unfold! See our betting preview…

World Cup 2018: Who will win?

Brazil go into the tournament narrow favourites at 5.00 with bet365, followed closely by Germany at 5.50 and Spain at 7.50.

Many bettors may be tempted to back Messi to finally go all the way with Argentina at 10.00 as this is surely his last chance to win silverware for his country.

Whilst others may fancy Euro 2016 winners, Portugal, who are well priced at 23.00. Though there are doubts they will be able to replicate the tournament-winning form that saw them win just once in regular time in the knockout stages in France 2 years ago.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said:

“Four teams were knocked out on penalties and we had eleven 0-0 draws in the 2014 World Cup, including the final, which saw us refund a combined total of £17m. It’s fair to say they are popular offers.”
