Quarter Finals Odds

Current odds for the winner of the coveted trophy place Brazil and France at the top. Hosts Russia and Sweden sit near the bottom of the standings. Most of the time, host nations rarely win the tournament. The first winners of the FIFA World Cup, Uruguay, are among the few that have taken the trophy. Unfortunately, bookmakers set their odds quite low:

  • Sweden – 25/1
  • Russia – 20/1
  • Uruguay – 14/1
  • Croatia – 11/2
  • Belgium – 5/1
  • France – 4/1
  • England – 4/1
  • Brazil – 9/4

With odds like these, gamblers across the globe will be glued to their screens this weekend. Especially as the 2018 World Cup is one of the most watched sporting events ever.

Final Group Matches

In the last group match, England won a penalty round against Columbia. Sweden won against Switzerland, Brazil beat Mexico and Belgium managed a goal against Japan. Russia was expected to lose against Spain, but some won their penalty shoot-out. This year’s group matches depended on last minute penalties for a number of matches, including Croatia’s win against Denmark.

So, keep visiting New Zealand Casinos for all the best odds on the FIFA World Cup winners.
