    World cup betting

    You can get 66/1 on Russia with a company called Spreader. It's a long shot, but that seems high for the host nation.

    80/1 is available with the same company for Poland and England are 20/1.

    I might have a few small e/w interest bets.

    I think Germany are stick ons to make the final at least, but 5/1 isn't value, imo.

    Germany is my pick for winning the tournament, but seeing them put out a strong team and lose to Austria yesterday shows they're quite beatable! Going to be an interesting tournament anyway, looking forward to it.

    5/1 for Germany to get to the final is decent odds.

    Seen on Twitter yesterday that they've not won in their last 5 games. First time this century that it's happened

    That's to win it outright.

    Each way is half.

    Edit: Ladbrokes are laying it at 5/2.

    I reckon there's money to be made betting against Argentina. The sum of the parts is greater than the whole. They scraped through qualifying, scored the least goals of the top 6 in the table and were destroyed by Spain in a recent friendly. They were well beaten by Nigeria not so long ago as well albeit without Messi. I'm shocked they are as short as 10s to win it.

    Unless corruption rears its head and there's some major referee tinkering, I think Russia have absolutely no chance of winning it, and might struggle to get out of the group. Just a lack of real talent and their results in the lead up dont look encouraging. Could be the least impressive host nation since South Africa. 80/1 Poland looks better value, although I hear Lewandowski has been off form.

    Don't see Germany winning it. A good centre half pairing but probably not as good as Spains. Two average full backs. A very good midfielder in Kroos, but other than that the rest are just good players and no outstanding forward. All IMO of course.

    Brazil have a better squad, as do France and Spain are also better in defence and midfield, although also like Germany, not the best up top.

    My picks would be:

    France
    Spain
    Brazil
    Germany/Portugal

    In that order.

    To be fair there's only been one host nation since South Africa and that was Brazil who made it to the semi finals (and admittedly got humped).

    On paper France look an excellent side but Iím just not sure how good a mentality theyíve got. It used to be a criticism of Holland that they had all the ability but too many egos and couldnít gel as a side, without knowing too much about the French they strike me as being similar.

    I think they could either win it or get knocked out in the group stages, neither would surprise me.

    Aye France do have that feel to them at times. Although in saying that they got to the final of the Euros last time out which isnít a bad effort.

    That looks good value for Muller. Reckon thereís a good chance heíll take penalties for Germany so you could be looking at a couple from the spot.

    Aye, I agree re Argentina and how they'll not mount any sort of serious challenge. And hopefully it'll put to bed the cliche that Messi can't be considered as one of the all time greatest footballers because he hasn't done it on the world stage, he's simply not got a good enough team around him to compete against far more complete international sides.

    He dragged them through their play off win to get to the World Cup with a hat trick in difficult circumstances and scored a few brilliant goals at the last World Cup.

    Stuck £20 on Brazil to win at 5/1 a few weeks ago.

    world cup

    Got 7-1 france, and 32-1 portugal for fun

    had a stab at argentia at 9-1 , on skybet, only as you get stake back if it loses, cant go wrong

    I got muller at 32-1 top scorer, , same odds on mbappe,

    had a nibble on lewandowski at 40s, lets face it, a hattrick and you can win it, just look at the previous winners, davor suker and oleg kuznetsov to mention a few,! even James in the last one, great player, but colombia were never winning it

    There's a realistic chance that Muller could get close to Klose's record 16 WC goals. Perhaps not in this one but he's young enough to have another couple of WCs in him. I would expect him to take any penalties for them to boost his tally. If I am right, I think he is on 10 from 2 tournaments.

    Depends on group placing but Portugal would appear to have a not insurmountable progression to the SFs if they finish second behind Spain - likely ties against Russia/Uruguay and then France before playing Brazil or Belgium in the semis, which may be the stumbling block.

    If he avoids injury he should feature in every game for Germany this time round and one would expect him to still be a pick or bench at the age of 32 next time round.

    Not very big with the likes of griezmann, mbappe and dembele as their front three

    Donít think it will make a lot of odds. Pogba, ****e, Dembele, Mbappe and possibly Matuidi would all be ahead of him. They may even start with Giroud up top aswell which would either mean playing 2 up top with Griezzman or Griezzman playing as a 10. I doubt heíd start.

    T&Cs state max £10 on mine:

    How to Claim

    Place a bet on any team to win the World Cup and get Money Back as a Free Bet if they donít win.
    If your team loses we will refund all win singles and the win part of each-way singles as a Free Bet up to £/Ä10 within 24 hours. E.g. A £5 each-way bet (£10 total stake) would receive a £5 refund.

    Suarez at 25/1 might be worth a look. I reckon he could score quite a few in the group as Uruguay play Saudi Arabia & Russia who are probably two of the weakest teams in the tournament if not the weakest.

    It definately states upto 50 on mine.
    Your probably right though,as it probavly means upto 10 back on bets upto 50
