Place your bets… Countdown to Russia

As we countdown to the kick-off of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia it is time for many to consider who the winners and losers might be.

The Betting Institute, an online sports betting guide that helps punters better understand how to bet, is keeping track on the odds and diverse World Cup bets that are being offered by the various UK licensed bookies.

At the time of writing, the Betting Institute has Germany and Brazil as joint favourites, followed by France, Spain and Argentina. Belgium and England, who are in the same group, are 6th and 7th.

Panama and Saudia Arabia are the rank outsiders, but will it be a relative outsider like Colombia and Sweden that takes the top prize?

Odds are quite short on Iceland reaching the last 16, while Messi and Neymar are the bookies’ favourites to be the top scorers in Russia. And how about a flutter on Harry Kane scoring in all three of England’s group games?
