Who do you think will lift the World Cup this summer? Join Sky Bet today for the best tournament odds.
On Thursday 12th June the 2014 Brazil World Cup will kick off as millions of football fans unite in their passion for the beautiful game.
As we look forward to the greatest football competition in the world we also take a look at some of the best odds available ahead of the tournament on Sky Bet.
Clearly everybody will have their favourites going into the tournament but, at present, Sky Bet have named hosts Brazil as their favourites to lift the World Cup aloft for a sixth time. The Brazilians have odds of 3/1
to win the tournament but are of course closely followed by Argentina (5/1
), Germany (5/1
) and Spain (6/1
). If you're looking for longer odds then the tournament's dark horses may well be worth a bet with Belgium currently available at 16/1
and Portugal, with the ever-impressive Cristiano Ronaldo, at a tempting 28/1
We are English however and there will always be a dream that perhaps, just maybe, the Three Lions could win the World Cup for a second time. If you think Roy Hodgson's squad can match the success of 1966 then you'll fetch odds of 28/1
. Everyone can dream can't they?
Another interesting market for the 2014 World Cup is who will win the Golden Boot? Lionel Messi (7/1
), Luis Suarez (12/1
), Neymar (14/1
) and Cristiano Ronaldo (14/1
) are four players that have proven they have what it takes but if you fancy longer odds then we believe Fred of Brazil (22/1
) and Spain's Diego Costa (20/1
) have what it takes. The players most likely to score for England in this tournament is Wayne Rooney and for the Manchester United striker to become top goalscorer this summer you would fetch longs odds of 50/1
Sky Bet have plenty of great odds on various outcomes and happenings in the 2014 World Cup such as:
- England Brazil to meet in the final? 50/1
- Diego Costa, Andres Iniesta and Xavi to each score 2+ goal in the tournament (shoot-out goals don't count)? 48/1
- Honduras to win the World Cup? 2000/1
- England to win group D outright? 9/4
