Now that we’ve completed the group stage of the World Cup, here are some betting agency news and updates.
For the outright winner market, all losing bets from penalty shoot outs will be refunded, which is something to keep in mind when you compare odds with other bookmakers. England have a consistent track record of being eliminated through penalties in major tournaments.
Sportsbet has refunded any bets on Australia to win the World Cup because they felt the two red cards Australia received were unfair!
Chile and Paraguay are two dark horses in this tournament. Chile only just came second behind Brazil in qualifying, while Paraguay beat Chile, Brazil and Argentina during their qualification campaign. The South American teams are all looking strong this tournament. At the time of writing, with Betfailr you can get 1.98 odds on a South American team to win the tournament, which I think is pretty good value.
