Classy Brazil Tipped To Be World Cup Winner In Russia

We are counting down the days until the start of the world's greatest sporting competition, as 32 nations battle it out to etch their names alongsides some of football's greats, and it's no surprise to see the likes of Brazil, Germany and Spain at the top of the 2018 World Cup Winner Odds, and we delve deep into this year's tournament, which takes centre stage in Russia over the coming month.

Tips Brazil to win    Best Bet @ 9 / 2  

Latest World Cup Winner Odds

Five-times winner Brazil are unsurprisingly fancied by many to sparkle at the 2018 World Cup, and they are the 9/2 favourites to lift the trophy for the first time since 2002, and their embarrassment of attacking riches is sure to frighten even the toughest of defences, and if the likes of Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Phillipe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino can sparkle in the world famous gold shits then the South American side will be a tough opponent to beat.

Impressive 2010 winners Spain may not be the dominant force they were earlier in the decade, but they still ooze quality, and they are available at 13/2 with some firms to shine in Russia, but they will have some potentially tough opponents in 2016 European Championships winners Portugal in their group, so may have a battle on their hands to top Group B and book an easier second round match, so they may just be worth taking on at the prices.

Reigning World Cup winners Germany have arguably the strongest squad in all areas in Russia, and Joachim Low's side know how to perform on the big stage, and being able to leave out Manchester City's Leroy Sane just shows what talen they have in their 23-man squad.

However, the 5/1 second favourites may just lack that out-and-out striker to see off the games when they get into the latter stages of the tournament, and while their midfield creativity is undoubetdly top-class, it's just lack that outright No.9 may just see them struggle at the knockout stages.

France, winners on home soil in 1998, are almost the opposite to the German squad in that they have a host of talents in the final third, with the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Liverpool target Nabil Fekir all catching the eye in their squad, but their defensive and midfield options could see them falter in Russia, and while they should ease into the last-16 they could struggle from then on.

Argentina (10/1) and Belgium (11/1) complete the top-six in the betting, and the former of that duo will be holding out for Lionel Messi to turn up, while the Belgium squad are often talked up as world-beaters, but often fail to deliver, and they will need Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne to shine from the first whistle, as beyond that their squad looks average at the best.

Are England's World Cup Odds To Win Too Short?

It's often the case that England's World Cup preparations go smoothly on the eve of a World Cup, and wins over Nigeria and Costa Rica will mean Gareth Southgate's men can head into Group G with a positive attitude, but can the Three Lions venture into the latter part of the tournament this year? I doubt it.

Drawn with Panama, Tunisia and Belgium, Southgate's men should head into the final group clash with Belgium with two comfortable wins over the other two nations, and then it will be a battle for top-spot in the final Group G match. Whether top spot or second spot, England should be able to win their second round tie with either Poland, Colombia, Senegal or Japan the opponents - Poland would be the toughest - but it's the quarter-finals that England will face their first gargantuan test.

A potential meeting with old foes Germany or ante-post favourites Brazil will mean that the 18/1 with Betfred is more than fair, and possibly a tad on the skinny side, and it's at the last-eight stage that could see England crash out of the tournament to a much better side, and while they won't come home in disgrace, it's the usual disappointment at a major tournament for the travelling England fans.

Uruguay Stand Out In World Cup Betting

A host of nations will celebrate if they can make it out of their groups, and the shortest outsider is European champions Portugal, who are 27/1 with Unibet, but while they have the talents of Cristiano Ronaldo they lack quality in all departments, and they will struggle to venture into the latter part of the tournament.

An eye-catching 28/1 with Betfred Bookmakers, Uruguay showed in the 2010 World Cup when reaching the semi-finals that they can deliver on the world stage, and in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani they have arguably one of the finest attacking duo in the whole tournament, and they should cruise to top spot in Group A, and if they can find their best form then could go deep into the competition.

Croatia (40/1 with Coral) and Poland (80/1 with Betfred) are the only other two nations worth a mention, with the latter more attractive at the prices, but as is often the case at a World Cup it is usually one of the fancied nations that prevail, and if Brazil can bounce back from their shocking semi-final exit at the 2014 tournament then they can land a prestigious sixth World Cup crown.
