England Cut After Favourable Draw

England’s World Cup odds have been trimmed after a run of bets on the back of a kind draw, which pitched Gareth Southgate’s side into Group G alongside Belgium, Tunisia and Panama.

England could be backed at 20/1 with Betfred in the run up to Friday’s draw in Moscow, but are now 16/1 across the board. They will face Tunisia and then Panama before closing the group against Roberto Martinez’s Belgium side, who draw the vast majority of their squad from the Premier League. Defending champions Germany, who face Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in the group stage, are the 5/1 favourites with Betfair, with Brazil an 11/2 chance with BetVictor after they were drawn alongside Costa Rica, Serbia and Switzerland in Group E.

Several firms are already offering a Top Goalscorer market, with Neymar the 10/1 favourite with Bet365 and Lionel Messi a 12/1 chance with BetVictor. The Premier League is well represented, with Gabriel Jesus the shortest-priced selection to be based in England. The Man City man is at 16/1, while Paddy Power make Harry Kane a 20/1 chance. Alvaro Morata (20/1), Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku (both 25/1) and Olivier Giroud (40/1) are among the other Premier League stars in the betting.
