Betting on the World Champion of 2018world cup predictions

The advantage of betting early on this type of sports betting (said long-term) is that the odds are very interesting. Much more than they will be in a few days or weeks. As the tournament progresses, the odds of teams will drop.

The draw for the 2018 FIFA World Cup took place on December 1st, 2017 at Kremlin in the presence of 1,300 selected guests. The 2018 World Cup will take place from June 14 to July 15 in eleven Russian cities.

“Our country is looking forward to the championship and intends to take this event to the highest level,” said the Russian president as he opened the ceremony. The event was organised in a Kremlin concert hall alongside the boss of Fifa Gianni Infantino. “We will do everything to make it a great sporting event,” he added. I invite all supporters in Russia. See you in 2018! “Vladimir Putin concluded that the draw marks the beginning of a final sprint of less than 200 days for Russia to overcome many obstacles in the organisation of this world-wide event: Herculean logistics in the largest country in the world, fight against hooliganism and racism, terrorist threat reinforced by Russian military intervention in Syria.

Favourites for this 2018 World Cup

  • France is not the only nation that can legitimately hope to brandish the trophy of the 2018 World Cup on July 15 in Moscow.
  • Winner in Brazil four years earlier but also of the Confederations Cup last summer with a team B or C, Germany is a serious opponent who is used to these major events and has a compact team playing together for many years now.
  • After its 2014 fiasco, Brazil will also have a role to play in Russia. Led by its star Neymar, the Seleçao has a group that looks better than in 2014. After flying over the qualifications in the South American zone, Brazil will have serious assets to argue with beefy players on all lines (Coutinho, Thiago Silva, Dani Alves, Marcelo, Luis Filipe, David Luiz, Casemiro, Alisson, Paulinho, Firmino, Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho etc.).
  • Finally, Spain is still expected at major international events despite a last World Cup and a last disappointing Euro. The hard core of this Roja is composed of high value elements evolving obviously in Barcelona and Real Madrid, but also more and more abroad (Monreal, Silva David, Azpilicueta, Thiago Alcantara, Gea, Morata and Callejon) .

Betting on the Outsiders

In this World Cup predictions section you will be able to find betting tips focused on outsiders, that will help you win big profits with big betting odds. Qualified in extremis for this World Cup, Argentina remains a credible outsider to the final victory. Unhappy finalist in Brazil 4 years earlier, Albiceleste can not be among the favourites because of its delicate course during eliminations. However, the only presence of Leo Messi, extremely motivated to finally win a trophy with his selection, should remind observers that Argentina can create the feat in Russia.

Belgium will also be an opponent to watch very closely. With an exceptional generation, the Red Devils have been growing steadily for a few years now (quarter-finalist at the 2014 World Cup and semifinalist at Euro 2016). The accumulated experience of recent international competitions and the arrival of a new coach (Robert Martinez) should allow the teammates of Eden Hazard to look good this summer. Always announced among the underdogs at each competition, England continues to disappoint like the elimination suffered in the round of 16 against Iceland in 2016. Led by Tottenham striker, Harry Kane, the Three Lions can rest on a phase of qualification carried out (8 wins and 2 draws) but will have to show more character to finally figure well in a big international competition. Finally, it is important to mention the reigning European champion, Portugal. Surprise winners in France at the last Euro, the men of Fernando Santos have not dazzled the observers through their quality of play during the playoffs, but they will be able to count on the presence of the fivefold Golden Ball winner Cristiano Ronaldo, and his usual success, to achieve a new feat.
