Updated 2018 World Cup Odds to Win – July 4th Edition

Written by on July 4, 2018

The 2018 World Cup is now down to just 8 teams, with the quarter-finals set to go on Friday and Saturday. This has been a tournament filled with surprises, with some of the teams still in the running being very much of the dark horse and underdog variety. Now is the time to get your wagers on for the winner, so let’s take a look at MyBookie Sportsbook odds of the 8 remaining teams.

Updated 2018 World Cup Odds to Win – July 4th Edition

Brazil (+275)

  • Confederation: CONMEBOL
  • Head coach: Tite
  • Captain: Various
  • FIFA Ranking: 2
  • World Cup Appearances: 21
The 5-time champions came in as the favorite and nothing has changed. This is different Brazil team than we have been used to, as they play defense first. Yes, they still score a lot, but they are more opportunistic in attack as opposed to being an all-out threat. They have a tough road to travel just to get to the final, so keep that in mind.

France (+400)

  • Confederation: UEFA
  • Head coach: Didier Deschamps
  • Captain: Hugo Lloris
  • FIFA Ranking: 7
  • World Cup Appearances: 15
The French made it through the group stage without too much fuss, but they were not particularly good to watch. That all changed in the Round of 16, where they put on an attacking clinic in a 4-3 win over Argentina. Kylian Mbappe is a legitimate star at just 19 years of age, and he will be the man to watch moving forward.

England (+400)

  • Confederation: UEFA
  • Head coach: Gareth Southgate
  • Captain: Harry Kane
  • FIFA Ranking: 12
  • World Cup Appearances: 15
England came into this tournament with a young squad and very low expectations, but they now have what appears to be a rather clear path to the final. They also have the potential Golden Boot winner, with Harry Kane already netting 6 times in just 3 games. Next up for them will be Sweden, a team that is very tough to break down.

Belgium (+600)

  • Confederation: UEFA
  • Head Coach: Roberto Martínez
  • Captain: Eden Hazard
  • FIFA Ranking: 3
  • World Cup Appearances: 13
The Golden Generation is my pick to win the World Cup, although they did have to survive a real scare in the last round, coming from 2 goals down to beat Japan 3-2. This is a team that is scoring in bunches and who is perhaps the most gifted squad of players still left in the tournament.

Croatia (+600)

  • Confederation: UEFA
  • Head coach: Zlatko Dalić
  • Captain: Luka Modric
  • FIFA Ranking: 20
  • World Cup Appearances: 5
Croatia was magnificent in the group stage, leading many to believe that they may be the dark horse to win the World Cup. Their stock fell a little in the Round of 16 when they struggled to get past Denmark, but make no mistake about it, they can still win this. It certainly helps that they are on the weaker side of the draw.

Uruguay (+1600)

  • Confederation: CONMEBOL
  • Head coach: Óscar Tabárez
  • Captain: Diego Godín
  • FIFA Ranking: 14
  • World Cup Appearances: 13
The South Americans have a 100% winning record in this competition and have only given up 1 goal in 4 games. Despite all that, they are still way down in betting odds, simply because they have to face France next.

The 2018 World Cup Odds to Win for Uruguay are not looking good.

These are great odds, though, and if you are looking for a longshot, they may well be worth a little flutter.

Russia (+2000)

  • Confederation: UEFA
  • Head coach: Stanislav Cherchesov
  • Captain: Igor Akinfeev
  • FIFA Ranking: 70
  • World Cup Appearances: 11
The host nation has stunned the world to reach this point and is now essentially playing with house money. Their stunning upset win against Spain is one of the biggest in World Cup history, but do they have it in them to deliver another sucker punch against Croatia? I don’t think so. v

Sweden (+2500)

  • Confederation: UEFA
  • Head coach: Janne Andersson
  • Captain: Andreas Granqvist
  • FIFA Ranking: 24
  • World Cup Appearances: 12
This may seem like a bit of an unfair price for a team that won their group and who have been defensively solid throughout. The 2 goals they have given up in this tournament came in a loss to Germany, so no shame there. That said, I just don’t see them winning it.
