World Cup 2018: Germany & Brazil Get Highest Odds to Win
December 5, 2017
FIFA World Cup is coming to Russia next year. With the quadrennial international football tournament all set to run in June, bookmakers have come prepared as early as now with their outright odds for the online sports betting community.
Of all the qualified teams, Germany and Brazil are the top two favored teams to take home the cup next year. France and Spain, on the other hand, are close behind with just a short gap. Here are what Bitcoin sportsbook fanatics should know about these four teams in World Cup 2018, along with the Bitcoin sports betting odds given by selected online bookies.
Germany sets eye on the cup
Germany is entering the World Cup as the defending champion. William Hill and Bet365 put the team at 5.50 while Betcoin.ag sets it at +475.
With the help of Coach Joachim Low since 2006, Germany managed to be consistent in their performance for more than a decade. The team placed third in both the 2006 and 2010 World Cup. Finally, Germany won the cup in 2017 while in Brazil’s territory.
Germany has Neuer again who stopped goal shots during the 2014 World Cup’s knockout stages. There is also Thomas Muller, vice-captain of Bayern Munich, who will be a key to the team.
Brazil hopes to redeem itself
Brazil is a five-time World Cup Champion with its recent title in 2002. William Hill and Bet365 give 6.00 while Betcoin.ag settled at +525.
The team has the likes of Neymar Jr. in its Arsenal. He is currently a contender for the prestigious Ballon d’Or Award this year. Brazil’s solid roster can help the team reverse the 7-1 defeat they experienced in the hands of Germany three years ago.
France brings in a solid roster
France only held the title just once, but the team is still the third most favored. It got 6.60 from both Bet365 and William Hill and it received +575 from Betcoin.ag.
France also boasts a solid line up. There are Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele who deliver an explosive offense to the team. To balance it out, there are N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba who are strong midfield players. The two also offer a good defensive play when needed.
The real strength of France is its team chemistry. This is thanks to the managing skill of Didier Deschamps, a retired footballer who has played for several clubs.
Spain gears up for a better performance
Spain is also a title holder with the team winning the World Cup 2010. Its loss in the Group Stage in the 2014 World Cup and disappointing run in the UEFA European Championship 2016 affected the team’s odds in the World Cup. Bet365 and William Hill gave the team 8.00 while Betcoin.ag went with +725.
One of Spain’s best arsenals is David Silva from Manchester City. Silva can do magic with the ball while playing midfield. No matter which team he is up against, he is not one to play it safe with the ball once he has it.
It is important to note that the roster playing for Russia next year are the same ones who played in European Championship 2016. Manager Julen Lopetegui may still have what it takes to bring back the Cup from Russia again.
