Spain Odds-On In The Group B Betting

It is Spain who are 1/2 favourites to win the group and the 2010 champions will be desperate to avoid another early exit like they suffered in Brazil four years ago. Surely, they can't mess qualification from this group up? They are certainly in good form as they went unbeaten in qualifying, winning nine and drawing one of their games, scoring 36 and conceding only three goals in the process.

One of the most highly anticipated games of the group stages will no doubt be Spain's clash with their old rivals Portugal, who are looking to follow up on their unlikely success at Euro 2016. In truth, the Portuguese don't look particularly impressive and their ageing squad could be vulnerable.

A side that includes the creaking limbs of Bruno Alves and Pepe will be reliant on Cristiano Ronaldo to work his magic, but they make little appeal at 2/1 to win the group.

Instead, we prefer to take a chance on an underrated Morocco team to qualify at 7/2 with Ladbrokes. They are 12/1 to win the group but that might be a bridge too far, although there is no reason why they can't push Portugal close for the runner-up spot. Many of their players are seasoned professionals from Europe's top leagues and they will be relishing their first appearance at a finals in 20 years.

Quarter-finalists at the African Cup Of Nations last year, Morocco qualified by winning their group without conceding a single goal and they will be looking to emulate the famous feat of the Moroccan side that beat Portugal 3-1 at the 1986 World Cup finals.

Finally, Iran are 25/1 to win the group and it is obviously a tough test for Carlos Queiroz and his men. They did win their group in the AFC section of qualifying, finishing ahead of South Korea, so perhaps it will be dangerous to underestimate them.
