Odds to Win 2017-18 English Premier League (Dec 6)

While the global audience is captivated by the Winter Olympics, what better time to take a look at the upcoming 2018 World Cup odds. At the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Germany is the 4/1 favorite, followed by Brazil (+500), France (+550) and Spain (+650). 2018 World Cup Odds: Updated Feb 12.

If you’re looking for a long-shot out there, keep your eye on two African nations at 200/1 – Egypt and Nigeria. Egypt played 15 international matches last year between World Cup qualifiers, the Africa Cup of Nations, and international friendlies. They allowed a total of 11 goals in those 15 matches. Mohamed Salah is one of the best playmakers in the world, and Egypt has the benefit of playing in the host nation’s “weak” group.

For Nigeria, I like the fact that they play Argentina last in the group stage. Iceland is going to capture everyone’s heart in that group, and they deserve all the credit in the world for qualifying. But there’s a reason they opened 1000/1. If Nigeria can pick up results against Iceland and Croatia, they can play that that third match against Argentina with reckless abandon. And by the way…Nigeria beat Argentina 4-2 three months ago. Messi didn’t play, but Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria and plenty of Argentina’s stars did.
