How do you do this? You can keep abreast of all the latest betting movements right here on these pages, and one tip would be to sign up with more than one of the most highly recommended bookmakers around. This will give you variety in where you get your bets down, so that you can take advantage of not only the best prices around, but the best promotions too which add value to your odds.
Where are you looking for the World Cup 2014 best odds in the outright winner market? Well, that will naturally come down to who you fancy the most to take the title. The shortest priced option is host nation Brazil, who will have been delighted with the draw ahead of them. Luiz Felipe Scolari’s Selecao are 3/1 favourites to land what would be their sixth World Cup title, and a look ahead at the group stage sees that they should have an easy time topping their group ahead of Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon. Indeed, Brazil should have a pretty easy run through to the semi finals, the stage at where their first really tough could came, projected to be joint second favourites Germany.
But for many punters the odds of 5/1 being offered on both Germany and Argentina will represent some of the best value around. Both have very well balanced squads, both have been in good form and both are looking strong enough to have a genuine shot at the final. But what represents even more value on them is simply taking one step back and looking at the To Reach Final market, when the Germans and Argentines are both at 9/4 to make it the Maracana on July 13th for the final of the FIFA World Cup 2014. There is going to value in looking ahead at the draw of course to weigh up which one makes the best value of all.
Germany, as mentioned, are projected to be in the semi final against Brazil, while Argentina’s toughest draw in the semi finals would be reigning Champions Spain. So realistically there is going to be perhaps an easier run to the final for Argentina and that could just make them more valuable for punters in World Cup 2014 betting. But of course, in trying to pull the World Cup 2014 best odds, you are not just going to be focused on the outright winner market. Markets with big odds like the Top Goalscorer outcome are too random to fall into this category, as are backing an outright shot like France or the Netherlands to land the title.
Coverage is the key to the World Cup 2014 best odds. Take a look at the To Reach Semi Final market, where three of the big four (Argentina Germany and Spain) are around Evens to reach the final four. On form and status, they all should get there. It is better to spread the money around than just having a long shot on the outright market. Other great value markets are the Forecast and Dual Forecast bets in group betting. This applies in particular where there are strong favourites to win their respective group, like Brazil in Group A, Germany in Group G and Argentina in Group F. Because there is little value in backing them to win their groups, look for better value in pairing them up with the team who is likely to finish second.
There is that big stat floating around, that every time in the history of the FIFA World Cup that is has been hosted in South America, a South American team has won it. Really the only other possible outcome is that a team from Europe would be the ones to upset there. So look at the projected semi finalists again, Brazil, Argentina, Spain and Germany. Then take a look at the Continent of Winner market and weigh up your options between Europe at 10/11 and South America at Even money with Paddy Power. That looks one of the top marks in World Cup 2014 best odds, whichever way you swing there.
