Which team is our World Cup 2018 Winner Tip? The prestigious international football competition will take place in Russia (Thursday 14 June – Sunday 15 July 2018).
- The previous three World Cup winners have all been from Europe (all from Western Europe) – Germany (2014, their 4th win), Spain (2010, their 1st win), and Italy (2006, their 4th win).
- Apart from those three teams, only FIVE other countries have won this prestigious tournament in its entire history: Brazil (5 times), Argentina & Uruguay (2 times each), and France & England (1 time each).
- We think the winner will definitely be Belgium, or one of 6 of the 8 of the previous winners (Italy have not qualified for the 2018 competition, and we certainly don’t see Uruguay as having a strong enough team to win) – so that’s 7 teams we even think have a realistic chance of winning.
- Our World Cup 2018 Winner Tip is Brazil. We see the price of 9/2 (at Sun Bets – Odds checked on 16th January 2018, but may change at any time) as sensational value for Brazil to make it 6 wins, and end a run of 3 Western European champions. 5 times champions Brazil won in 1958 in Sweden, in 1962 in Chile, in 1970 in Mexico, in 1994 in the USA, and in 2002 in South Korea/Japan. In 2018 barring injury they will have, the world’s most expensive footballer, PSG’s Neymar in their ranks. Brazil are in Group E, along with Switzerland, Serbia, and Costa Rica – we expect them to breeze through their Group.
