Hot Tips for World Cup Russia 2018


The favourites, Brazil

On June 14, the 21st staging of the FIFA World Cup will get underway in Russia with the hosts taking on Saudi Arabia and let’s face it, everyone is excited for the World Cup because it means World Cup 2018 betting. By far, the biggest sports event of them all, the entire world will be tuning in to watch their teams in Russia. In all, 32 teams enter, but only one can win. Which brings us to the million-dollar question: Who will win the World Cup Russia 2018?

Below, we have looked at the prospects of the top five teams in the betting. Don’t place a bet without reading first.

Brazil

The favourites for the cup this year, just as they are every other year, are of course, Brazil. With good reason too as the Samba Boys have won the event more than anyone else and they, more than anyone, conjure up the magic for the World Cup. With legends like Pele, Romário, Ronaldo and Denilson, they are understandably admired. Though this is no vintage year for the boys from Brazil. The world’s two most expensive ever players, Coutinho and Neymar — should he be fit — will be expected to lead the campaign with added invention required from Firmino, Willian and Jesus. The side comes into the tournament in good shape, beating Russia 3-0 and Germany 1-0 in pre-tourney friendlies, as new coach Tite perfects his starting XI without or hopefully, with his star player. With Neymar potentially fit for the World Cup and back in a line-up already bursting with talent, no one can deny Brazil’s strength, and that’s why many see them as favourites right now.

Germany

The holders, Germany

The holders, Germany, are another side that are always considered to be among the World Cup favourites. Yet they are in indifferent form having not beaten a top rival inside 90 minutes in 10 matches. That said, their 1-0 reverse to Brazil last month was their first defeat in 23 games. But don’t be fooled, the qualifying campaign produced a 100 percent win rate and a +39-goal advantage, so they’re hardly struggling either. Team manager Joachim Löw bemoaned the attitude of his players during the defeat to Brazil, but it is worth remembering that he is always introducing young players to an already youthful side. The four-time champions, who have not failed to reach a semi-final since France ‘98, will turn to Toni Kroos of Real Madrid for inspiration. The midfielder is one of the best in the world and will be crucial in Russia as potentially could be RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner who at the age of 22 has already banked seven goals in his international career so far. The rule says that you should never go against the Germans, and it would take a brave man to bet against them here.

Spain

The winners in 2010 and back-to-back winners of the European Championship either side of that triumph, Spain are once again reaching the peak of perfection. Now under the charge of former Under-21 boss Julen Lopetegui who has reinvigorated the side, the team is once again building on the tried-and-tested formidable spine of Ramos, Pique, Busquets, Silva and Iniesta, arguably the greatest player Spain has ever produced. Now though, a host of young talent has breathed fresh life into the side, giving what many believe to be the perfect blend of experience and youth. Chief among the new blood are the supremely talented Isco, another one on the books of Real Madrid, Niguez, Morata, Aduriz, Aspas and Costa, any one of which can and likely will provide firepower if selected. Qualifying with ease from a group that contained Italy — who didn’t make it to Russia — Lopetegui’s men scored 36 times and conceded only three. Look out too for 22-year-old rising star Marco Asensio whose reputation continues to grow. Quick and with an eye for a goal or a killer pass, the Mallorca-born starlet already seeks out responsibility in big games and can prove a real game-changer for La Roja in Russia.

Argentina

Look out for Argentina

The fifth favourites and two-time winners Argentina are one side that has felt the full force of this Spanish re-emergence, losing 6-1 in Madrid a month ago. Argentina do have World Cup pedigree though and also boast the world’s top player in Lionel Messi, so they should be more than capable of rising to the occasion when the time comes in June. Except for a few star names, Messi, Dybala and Aguero, around 25/1 to be top scorer Jorge Sampaoli is still tweaking his players and tactics, so we don’t yet know how they’ll line up. But for sure, what we have seen so far will no doubt be improved upon when the World Cup starts and have been installed rightly as one of the standout favourites.

France

Led by Didier Deschamps, Les Blues are another side boasting a good mix of exciting young players and seasoned pros. Matuidi, Kante and Griezmann are in the latter camp while Pogba, Fekir, Lemar and the soon-to-be world’s most expensive teenager Kylian Mbappe, who cost Paris Saint-Germain a price tag of £166 million, are all in the former and all are plying their trade with the top teams in the biggest competitions. Arguably, their top player is the centre back Raphael Varane, who plays for, you guessed it, Real Madrid. Varane will need to be in top form if he is to keep all the top end talent happy as himself aside, France’s weak point comes without doubt at the back. Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny has had a less than convincing season and left-back Benjamin Mendy is due to return from a long-term injury layoff in April, which leaves him little time to find top-level form, meaning captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris could be busier than he’d like. They qualified easily enough, finishing at the top of their group and if they can keep things tight at the back, then they have the firepower to launch a winning campaign.

Can you name the Huddersfield Squad?

Hudderfield are a bit of an enigma as football teams go, led by their crazy manager, David Wagner, they’ve trodden the less travelled road in terms of transfers this season. Rather than targeting all of the players going down with teams relegated from the Premier League from the previous season, as is the norm for new teams, they’ve done their homework.

It’s not often you see a team promoted to the Premier League taking chances on players who were previously plying their trade in the second division in Germany or even players who have no real form in big league.. but that’s what Huddersfield have done completely against the usual football odds. It really throws this into light when you, as a casual football fan, try to name them. We’ve put together a quiz to see exactly how many of their starting 11 you can name – be sure to let us know how you get on!

English Top League Manager Quiz Introduction

In English football history there have been a total of 24 different clubs who have lifted the top division trophy. Only 6 of these 24 have ever managed to lift the Premier League trophy in its 26 season history, the most successful being Manchester United.

Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the greatest managers in football history, having guided Manchester United to 13 league titles in his 27 year spell at the club. Jose Mourinho has since taken over at the club and ahead of the 2018/19 season, United are likely to be one of the favourites in Premier League betting at Betfair to win the title once again.

Of the 24 teams to have won the top division in England, only 2 are currently playing in the third tier of English football. Blackburn Rovers and Portsmouth are the two clubs in question and while Rovers are sitting comfortably in 2nd place and expected to make a return to the second tier, Portsmouth will have to improve on their current form if they are to progress via the play-offs.

Blackburn have won three top division titles in their history, the most recent being the 1994/95 Premier League title, which made them only the second club to ever win the newly formed Premier League following back-to-back league wins for Manchester United. Much like Manchester United, Portsmouth have also won back-to-back league titles, although you would have to go all the way back to the 1949/50 season for their last league glory.

Leicester City became the most recent team to win their first top division league title after defying the odds to win the 2015/16 Premier League. In what is considered to be one of the most unexpected title wins in world footballing history, Leicester were able to lift the Premier League trophy thanks to players like Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante.

Legendary manager Brian Clough is one of a handful of managers to have won the top flight with more than one club. Clough first won England’s top division with Derby County back in the 1971/72 season before claiming his second in the 1977/78 season, this time with Nottingham Forest.

We have created a quiz which tests your knowledge on the last manager to have won an English top flight title with 10 of the 24 clubs to have had the honour of being the best team in English football.

Aintree Grand National 2018

The big one has finally arrived as punters look to pick the winner of the ultra-competitive contest. It is a unique, extreme test which is why it is notoriously difficult to find the winner over the years. However, there are certainly trends to follow in order to narrow down the field in selecting your National horse and we have you covered. Check out the infographic below which shows the key trends to follow over the years and no doubt the 2018 winner will enter this bracket again!

The Grand National betting latest has had a market mover in recent days in Anibale Fly. The now 8 years old trained by Tony Martin in Ireland has always had a big reputation and finally looks to be fulfilling that. He is now 20/1 for the race if he were to take his chance. He was put in at 8th in the weight list which would mean he would run off 11 stone 4lb. This shows the task at hand but he is improving and looks to have the right attributes for the race.

Anibale Fly went relatively under the radar for the Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown at the start of the season. However, he won with ease by 7 lengths firmly stamping himself as a top stayer for the future. He, unfortunately, followed this up with a disappointing performance in the Irish Gold Cup where he fell when looking beaten. This resulted in the horse having questions to answer as he entered the Gold Cup as a 33/1 outsider. Anibale completely out ran those odds finishing in third being beaten just 8 and half lengths by the eventual winner Native River. This was a very eye-catching run as he was staying on very strongly at the end of the race looking like an extreme test like the National could be tailor-made for the horse. He is certainly one to look out for if turning out in a few weeks’ time for the National.

Another horse who ran a very promising race at Cheltenham who is being aimed at the Grand National is the Gordon Elliott trained Tiger Roll. He seems to come alive come the latter end of the season and if he can bring his top form to Aintree he would have to have a good chance. He is now a three-time Cheltenham festival winner having landed the Triumph hurdle back in 2014, the National hunt chase in 2017 and the Cross Country most recently. Tiger Roll is a classy horse with endless stamina so is another to keep on side ahead of the 2018 Grand National.
