How to bet

It’s never been easier to place a bet on the football World Cup, with hundreds of different bookmakers to choose from.

Opening accounts with more than one company is recommended, as this gives you access to a wide range of offers and the opportunity to compare odds before placing a bet. Checking out companies such as William Hill, 888sport, Paddy Power, NetBet and Coral is an excellent starting point for anyone looking to boost their enjoyment of the tournament.

Many football fans enjoy multiple bets such as doubles, trebles and accumulators, but it can often pay to keep your number of selections low. Once you have chosen your market and price this creates a betting slip. If you are happy with your selection, you simply enter a stake and place your bet.

Where to bet

It’s always advisable to do some research before deciding where to bet on the football World Cup. Make sure you select reputable companies where your business will be valued and your personal details kept safe.

Betting options

The football World Cup offers a vast range of betting options throughout the tournament, with every game scheduled to be broadcast live on television.

Whether you prefer to bet on outrights, first goalscorer or match results, bookmakers across the industry will have all the bases covered. Over/under markets for the number of goals scored in the game are also popular and, for punters looking for bigger wins, a multi-team accumulator is the way to play.

Most bookmakers will also offer ante-post prices on the tournament, giving you the opportunity to secure some excellent value before the big kick-off. Betting on who will top the tables in the opening round keeps your interest alive throughout the group stage, with cash-out options adding to the excitement.

Teams

Germany, France, Brazil and Argentina will be among the front-runners for success in Russia, but there are a host of other teams who will fancy their chances.

Spain, Portugal and Italy are likely to mount serious challenges, whilst England will hope they can finally overcome their recent tournament woes and reach the latter stages. Russia will be eager to make an impression on home soil, as they bid to emulate France who were the last hosts to win the football World Cup back in 1998.

African teams are yet to progress beyond the World Cup quarter-finals, but Ivory Coast could be a lively outsider with the likes of Eric Bailly and Jean Michael Seri in their line-up.
