| Germany have unsurprisingly been priced up as favourites in the early World Cup 2018 betting markets, with Joachim Low’s side aiming to become the first side since 1962 to wrap up successive titles. Brazil suffered a humiliating loss to the champions on home soil back in 2014 and they are likely to be seeking revenge this time around. William Hill have Brazil priced up as second favourites for success in Russia ahead of Argentina and Spain in the World Cup 2018 betting markets. It’s set to be a fascinating tournament and there is plenty of value to be found in the outright markets. The Selecao have won eight successive qualifying games under their new coach and have conceded just twice in that run and have recently returned to the top 5 of the FIFA Rankings as a result. It’s no surprise to see them so prominent in the betting.
