With just a month to go until the start of the tournament, Brazil and Germany are neck-and-neck in the betting for this summer’s World Cup, with both countries available at a best price of 9/2 with various firms. Germany famously thrashed Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals four years ago, but the 2014 hosts were without their injured talisman Neymar in that match and look a much stronger outfit in all areas this time around. France are a powerful side and have a striker in his prime in Antoine Griezmann and they are at 13/2 with Bet365, while Spain are the same price with Betfred.
England are currently a best price of 18/1 with Bet365, although they are likely to be offered at around 20/1 as the tournament draws near – as the bookmakers compete for the patriotic pound.
Lionel Messi heads the Top Goalscorer betting at 10/1 with BetVictor, with Neymar at 12/1 with Coral as he bids to recover peak fitness after a foot injury. Griezmann, who top scored with six goals at Euro 2016, is widely available at 14/1, with Cristiano Ronaldo a 16/1 chance with Coral. That’s the same price as Harry Kane, who was outscored 2-0 by Hal Robson-Kanu in France two summers ago.
