World Cup Betting Odds with 888Sport

The 2018 World Cup will take place this summer, starting on June 14th and culminating in the final of the competition on July 15th. Uruguay hosted the inaugural tournament back in 1930 and they actually went on to win the competition, beating Argentina in the final.

This year’s tournament marks the 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup and five-time winners Brazil will be looking to cement their status as the most decorated international team in the business. 31 teams have made it through qualifying, with the addition of host nation Russia and all competing nations will be confident of challenging for the Jules Rimet Trophy. In 2014, Germany defeated Argentina in extra-time to claim a fourth World Cup crown, will Joachim Loew’s side go all the way again this year?


England in the World Cup


England head into the 2018 World Cup with a poor recent record at this level. The Three Lions have failed to inspire confidence at major tournaments since the 1990s and their only World Cup triumph to date came back in 1966. Sir Bobby Moore lifted the trophy in front of a jubilant Wembley Stadium on that day and Three Lions fans will be dreaming of another run to the final this year.


Gareth Southgate’s side will look to take inspiration from the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton, Wayne Rooney and Gary Lineker this summer. Lineker holds the national record for most World Cup goals with 10 and Harry Kane, currently a 16/1 chance for the Golden Boot award, will be hoping to make a positive impact throughout the tournament. With the likes of Raheem Sterling, Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli in fine form, the Three Lions could surprise us all this summer.


The Latest Tips And Bets For 2018 World Cup Glory


888sport have you covered before, during and after the 2018 World Cup. Outright betting markets for the event have been available for some time. A few of the market principles include:

  • Brazil - The 9/2 favourites will take some stopping in their pursuit of a sixth crown. If Neymar is fully fit, he can be Brazil’s difference maker.

  • Germany - Next up we have defending champions Germany at 5/1. Arguably the most complete team in the competition, Loew’s side could secure back-to-back victories.

  • Spain - 11/2 a decent price considering their quality. After an embarrassing early exit in 2014, Spain are looking to bounce back and could feature prominently.

  • France - Didier Deschamps led his side to the European Championship final in 2016 but Les Bleus fell short. Can they go one better and add a second Jules Rimet Trophy to their collection?


Messi Tops 2018 World Cup Golden Boot


Furthermore, the Golden Boot is always an accolade that attracts plenty of attention with punters. It will come as no surprise to see Lionel Messi out on his own at the head of the betting at 9/1. The Barcelona man has been in fantastic form and Argentina should reach the latter stages of the competition.

But don’t write out old rival Cristiano Ronaldo; at 13/1, the Real Madrid man is worth backing. There are doubts over 11/1 Neymar after missing a large chunk of the season whilst France’s potent offense could hinder Antoine Griezmann’s chances of individual success.
