2018 World Cup Odds - Germany favourites for golden globe
The European Championships may be in full swing, but attention is already glued on the 2018 World Cup, which takes place in Russia in two years time.
Defending champions Germany won their fourth golden globe in Brazil, and it's no surprise to see the European giants installed as the ante-post favourites for glory in 2018. Meanwhile the usual contenders are in the mix, including Argentina, Spain, France and Brazil, whereas England are a 20/1 long shot.
Down the years, the World Cup has thrown up very few surprises in terms of who has finished top of the pile, with the winners consistently coming from the front runners in the bookmakers betting odds.
France are the biggest priced team to win a World Cup in recent years when winning as host nation in 1998 at odds of 20/1 prior to the tournament kicking off, with Les Bleus available at 12/1 to win 20 years later in 2018.
