Anyone can predict before the event that Brazil and Argentina will probably do well.
Even KPMG Accountants after analysing the last 10 World Cups came up with a set of results that agreed 100% with all the odds compilers in the world – whoopee, that was a worthwhile piece of work wasnt it!!!. So how does any of that help us when on any given day, just like in 1973 when England pummelled Poland and yet still lost, any team can beat any team. The answer is, it doesnt. So what we have to do is find the 50/1 Sri Lanka of the Cricket World Cup and then back our instincts knowing that we have the edge on price. That’ s the key.
So having worked out a strategy, what does it mean in real terms. We think it means this:
Who Wins the World Cup
We think that Spain will retain their crown. They have the most complete set of domestic footballers playing in one of the best leagues in the World. Obviously concerns about striker, Diego Costa’s fitness are something to be aware of but their midfield is the best in the world and they can all score goals.
Back Spain – 4 units e/w @ 13-2 with Bet 365
Best Big Priced Team
This has to be France. They rarely have a bad tournament, or if they do then it really is a shocker, so you will know your fate early and they seem to be peaking at the right time.
Back France – 1 unit e/w @ 25/1 with Boylesports
Shock Team at a Price to Qualify from their Group
Australia look over priced in Group B and whilst it would be a shock for them to outpoint Holland and Chile they just don’t know how to lie down and you will get a great run for your money. There is always an upset and this could be it.
1 unit win Australia to qualify from Group B @ 12/1 with Corals
Best Equipped to make the Quarter Finals
This one we give to Belgium. They have a great squad, little or no pressure to succeed and a real belief . They have to get past Algeria, Russia and South Korea to qualify top of their group and then after that they could end up with Portugal or Ghana to get past in order to make it to the Quarters where its anyone’s game.,
Back Belgium to be eliminated in the Quarter Finals @ 4/1 with Corals -2 units win
We fancy these three teams under the radar to all qualify and think it makes a great treble.
Belgium @ 1-5, Ivory Coast @ 11/10, Italy 4-9 – Corals 3 units Treble.
England – How to Play
And Finally. What piece would be complete without England in our strategy. Well surprisingly they look a bit of value in a few places. We all want England to do well and if they do the nation needs some money to celebrate. Oxlade-Chamberlain is crucial to any England success as he has pace and that scares defenders. Other than that we have an efficient squad who don’t make too many mistakes and possibly a match winner or two which is crucial to World Cup success.
Back us to qualify @ 4/7 with Sportingbet for a massive 7 units. Then you have a position in each game without worrying too much about results.
Then have a tasty 2 units win @ 7/2 on us to make the Quarter Finals with Bet 365 &
A 3 unit win to win the World Cup at 28/1 with Bet 365 who will then refund your losing bet when we get eliminated on Penalties
Now that’s a great concession.
