Germany and Brazil Considered Favourites to Win 2018 FIFA World Cup
May 31, 2018
Sports bookies have been running the numbers and have recently named Germany and Brazil as favourites to win the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup. Both nations have previously won the tournament multiple times - with Germany being current champions. Thus, it makes perfect sense that bookies would favour these two sides.
Previous winners, France, Spain and Argentina, have all also been given rather favourable odds, despite being lower than that of Brazil or Germany. In reference to other reigning international champions within the competition, European champions, Portugal, has been given average odds, with the side's lacklustre performance in previous competitions counting against them.
Saudi Arabia Considered Least Likely to Win 2018 FIFA World Cup
Of all the nations participating in this year's tournament, many major sports betting firms have pegged Saudi Arabia as the nation least likely to lift the trophy. The nation has only made it out the group stages once before in the tournament and has lost nine of their 13 matches previous World Cup matches.
Joining Saudi Arabia at the bottom of the odds list is Panama, Tunisia, Iran and Australia. Although the Australian national football team has experienced some success in international competitions in recent years, their overall record in the tournament stands against them. Just as with Saudi Arabia, Australia has only progressed past the tournament's group stage once and have only racked up two wins in their five appearances.
