World Cup Matches
bet365 have a great range of markets for all the World Cup Matches. (18+ Ts and Cs Apply). England are in Group G and will play Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in that order. England have not won their first match at a tournament since their opening fixture against Paraguay at the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Only Saudi Arabia are a bigger price than Tunisia and Panama in the World Cup winner outright betting so these are fixtures England should be winning with something in hand. It really is an opportunity to get six points on the board, score some goals and build up some momentum and confidence. The final group match against Belgium should decide who wins the group and England are the slight underdogs in this fixture.
One of bet365's most popular World Cup markets is for the Outright Winner. (18+ Ts and Cs Apply). Germany emerged as the best team in the World Cup in Brazil in 2014. They demolished and humiliated the hosts in the last four with a 7-1 victory. Several key members of that squad have retired but Germany have found some able replacements so they can win back-to-back World Cups. Germany's potential opponents in the quarter-finals are england and this is where the bet365 Penalty Payback (18+ Ts and Cs Apply) mentioned above could come in handy. If you back a team to win the World Cup and they are knocked out on penalties bet365 will retun your stake in a promotion that is subject to specific terms and conditions.
You can back all the best players to be the World Cup Top Goalscorer with bet365 (18+ Ts and Cs Apply). Barring injuries Harry Kane will play in all of England’s matches. He could in fact score twice in matches which would give the captain a great chance of winning the Golden Boot and being the leading scorer. The favourite in both markets is Neymar who scored goals in Brazil’s last two friendlies before the World Cup. If Kane or Neymar are in form England or Brazil could go two goals ahead. In that case bet365 will pay you out in full through their Early Payout (18+ Ts and Cs Apply) offer even if the bet is not eventually a winner. This promotion is for pre-match singles in the 90 minutes result market for any fixture in this year's World Cup.
bet365 have the first phase of the World Cup covered with their Group Betting. (18+ Ts and Cs Apply). England play Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in Group G in Russia and are second favourites behind Belgium. England might not win the Group but they must surely progress. The group winners play the runners-up from other groups in the same half of the draw. England are projected to meet Poland or Senegal in the last 16 depending on the placings in the two groups. If all goes to plan and form England are due to meet Germany in the quarters so winning the group of finishing second is not significant but coming third or fourth would be another embarrassment.
Stage of Elimination
bet365's odds for Stage of Elimination (18+ Ts and Cs Apply) suggest England face the nightmare scenario of being knocked out of the World Cup by Germany at the quarter-final stage. The last eight is the favourite in the market for the stage of England’s elimination. Over the last four World Cups England have not improved their finishing position from one tournament to the next. England fell at the group stage in Brazil four years ago but they must do better this time. They face a winnable tie in the last 16 and Germany will probably be awaiting in the next stage. England are due to win a tie on penalties so they can beat Germany in this way and then be eliminated in the semi-finals.
You can get all the bases covered with bet365's odds for the World Cup in these five markets but they offer so much more if you are betting before matches or in-play. All 64 matches are being shown live on free-to-view television so bet365 is the place to visit for all your World Cup betting requirements. (18+ Ts and Cs Apply).
