World Cup Final Odds
It is no surprise that defending champion Germany has the best betting odds to make the finals followed by six-time winner Brazil. The other teams that have good odds include France, Spain, and 2014 finalist Argentina. Saudi Arabia and Panama, who are making their World Cup debut, have the lowest odds not only to make the finals but also to win their group. Here are the odds at some reputable betting sites on teams to make the finals.
The Finals Bet
The finals bet is a tough one to cash in on picking one of two teams to make it to the finals. The team you pick have to make it out of their group and then three matches in the Round of 16, the quarterfinals, and then the semifinals. The top betting sites such as Bodog, Sports Interaction, and Intertops already have posted odds for the World Cup 2018 finals bet, and those odds will change up to and during the tournament.
How it Works
The final odds bet for the FIFA World Cup 2018 is easy to understand, but not easy to win. You simply have to find a legitimate sportsbook that has those posted betting odds, and you make a prediction and then bet on what team you think will make the finals. There are two winners of the bet, as the winner of each of the semifinals will be the winner of the finals bet since they advanced to the last two teams in the tournament. The odds will change for the finals bet, and the odds will reflect such things as form entering the tournament, key injuries, and how the team is performing in the tournament. For example, if world power Brazil is shocked in their first group match and takes a loss their finals odds will go down, as it will be more difficult for them to make the finals. You can make the finals bet from now until the time just before the semifinals kick off.
Quick Guide to Betting for the Finals
When you are making a finals odds bet there are some things that you can look for to increase your chances of winning. If you make a bet before the World Cup, 2018 starts look at things such as if they have any key injuries, and how they match up with other teams in their group. If you make a bet while the tournament is happening also look at their form and how they have played, injuries and possible Round of 16, quarterfinals, and semifinals matchups. For example, if you see that a team you want to bet on has to go through Germany or Brazil to make the finals the odds are not in their favour to advance, and because of this, the betting odds will reflect that.
