2018 World Cup Betting Odds

2018 World Cup Betting Picks

The favorites to win the World Cup are the Germans, the defending champions of the event. They were considered the young, up and coming team in 2006 when they hosted this tournament, but now, 12 years later, they've got an old team with a lot of new blood that can be the perfect combination for a run to a second straight World Cup. But how hard is it to repeat? No one has done it at the World Cup since 1962 when Brazil won a second straight title. That said, Germany is set at + 450 to win the World Cup.

Spain, who won the event in 2010 and was favored to do it again in 2014, is amongst the second favorites at + 700, while a pair of South American teams, Argentina and Brazil, are also right there at + 700. But let's remember that La Roja fell apart in 2014 and didn't even get into the knockout rounds of the World Cup. Brazil has been fantastic in qualifying and will surely reach Russia, but Argentina? There's no guarantee at this point.

Argentina has still never won a major tournament with Lionel Messi playing on the squad, and losing out in Copa America prompted him to quit the team briefly before coming back for this run at the World Cup. The Argentines though, wouldn't be a lock for the World Cup if it started today, as they are fifth best in CONMEBOL qualifying, good enough to just get into a playoff against the Oceania winner.

A few other teams are having a tough time in World Cup qualifying as well. Portugal, the Euro 2016 winner, is a 25 to 1 longshot to win the World Cup. A Selecao currently sit second in Group B, three points behind Switzerland. It's not a given the Portugal won't win this group anyway, but the Swiss are awfully good. Finishing second isn't a death sentence either with the second place playoffs, but that's more of a crapshoot.

And then there's the United States. The Americans really felt like they were heading in the right direction in 2014 when they survived the " Group of Death " by beating out Portugal for a spot in the last 16. Even being eliminated by Belgium in the Round of 16 in extra time was considered to be a relatively high point for American soccer. That said, Jurgen Klinsmann has since been fired after failures in both the Gold Cup and Copa America. Now, the USMNT is without a point through two matches in the last round of CONCACAF qualifying and needs to get on its high horse in a hurry with new coach Bruce Arena. The Stars and Stripes are set at + 4000, a better price than Mexico at + 6600, the latter of which is a team that has pretty much already settled its place in Russia.
