2018 FIFA World Cup Final

 After the 209 qualifiers are reduced down to 32 for the World Cup tournament. The teams are split into 8 groups consisting of 4 teams. Two weeks of group matches are played to determine the top two sides in each group, who go through to the knockout stage.

A Round of 16 then takes place and reduces the number of teams from 16 down to 8. Then follows the quarter finals to bring the number of title contenders down to 4.

The final 4 sides then play in the semi-finals. The losers of those games then face off to determine third and fourth place.

The two semi-finals victors advance to the prestigious World Cup Final.

 

World Cup Winner Odds

 The first team to win the World Cup, Uruguay are back this year. Of course, it wouldn’t be a World Cup without Brazil, who’ve won more World Cup finals more than any other nation with 5, and finishing runner-up twice. They’re historic form has got them backed as odds on favourites.

Defending champions Germany, who broke Brazilian’s hearts by beating them 7-0 in their semi-final at the last World Cup, 2014, have also qualified and are strong favourites to win again.

The current UEFA Euro Champions Portugal and the runners up France will also feature here and should also be considered seriously when betting on the winner of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
