In World Cup 2014 odds, Brazil have been trading as strong ante post favorites at a price of 3/1 with most bookmakers. The South Americans are a young side and undoubtedly talented with Barcelona's young hot shot Neymar the star attraction. Brazil of course are the most successful international side in the world, having won the event five times before. Does the young squad have the mental toughness to make it six?
The outright winner market will attract a lot of punters, even the most casual of bettors who want to try and cash in on the World Cup. But waiting a whole month, or even longer if you have taken a long ante-post bet on the World Cup winner, can be tough to sweat out. So while the world awaits the declaration of the next World Champions, it is all those matches in between which gets all the focus over the month.
The matches at the World Cup for your betting will follow the usual format, covering everything from just picking out an option in the Win/Draw/Win market, or digging deeper into the action and looking at popular markets such as First Goalscorer, Correct Score, Over 2.5 Goals, Both Teams To Score and Scorecast bets. That is just scratching the surface of World Cup 2014 odds in terms of match betting.
A lot of punters also get attracted by building accumulators, as the matches come thick and fast, from the group stage through the knockouts. This is a great way to try and land some big profit from a small stake. But the month long action of World Cup betting will bring other great options, such as Group Betting. Looking at Group B for example where World Champions Spain go up against the Netherlands, makes that market even more interesting. Who will win, who will qualify?
The Top Goalscorer is another of the popular markets for World Cup 2014 odds, as the leading contenders will be looking to their star strikers, like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Robin van Persie to shoot them to glory. Will there be upsets along the way? Will the dark horses such as Belgium and Colombia be able to make an impact.
Who will be able to stop Brazil? Will neighbours Argentina be able to come up with the goods? On each occasion that the World Cup has been hosted in South America, it has been a nation from that continent which has gone on to win. Will Germany or Spain perhaps become the first ones to snap that trend and leave their backers in World Cup 2014 odds happy?
