Pre-Tournament Favourites
(World Cup 2014)

There's no surprise here that Brazil are favourites for the World Cup 2014 tournament. They have a very good squad to choose from and are playing in their home country. You would be foolish however to think that the likes of Spain have little chance at 7/1 because they are the current World Cup holders and have won the past two European Championships. Other countries to watch out for are Argentina with the terrific Lionel Messi and both Germany and Belgium have solid squads. I also have a sneeky suspicion that Uruguay and Portugal may have good tournaments also.

Argentina 9/2
