Brazil still favorite to win tournament

The Brazilian national team is still the favorite to win the 2018 World Cup across several soccer betting sites. Despite managing only a draw in their first game, the South American country is still favorite to win the tournament. Indeed with players such as Neymar, Coutinho, and Jesus at the top of their game, it is difficult to see who can stop them. They are currently offered at 9/2 to win the tournament in July and if they continue to play as they did in their second game it will be difficult to stop them.

They are followed by Spain who has also impressed since the beginning of the tournament. They are at the time of writing co-favorite with Brazil at 9-2 to win the Russian World Cup. Despite not having some really big names in the team, the Spanish team can boast itself of having a great collective play. The playing style that has allowed them to win the World Cup and Euros are still present in the team and opposing teams can find it hard to get possession of the ball. However, their only problems seem to be the lack of a manager after they have sacked their boss just three games before the start of the world cup.

Prices For Backing England To Win World Cup

Gareth Southgate has just been able to reveal the 23-man squad that England will be taking to the World Cup. Following this announcement, the price on England winning the World Cup has been placed at 16/1 among many of the top bookmakers. The Three Lions are hoping to become successful in a World Cup tournament for the first time since 1966 when they were unable to lift the title due to home advantage.

However, England have been quite disappointing when it comes to major tournaments since then. This has led to England being frequently labelled as chokers, as they are simply unable to find the winning combination despite possessing a large contingent of high quality players. Southgate is no different from the previous England managers, as he is still blessed with a strong squad coming into the tournament.

Roma Vs Barcelona Betting Tips

Roma take on Barcelona in the Champions League looking to make the miraculous turnaround and reach the semifinals of the competition. The Italians have not done well when it comes to European games. Hence, it was not surprising to see them suffer a 4-1 defeat against Barcelona in the first leg of the quarter-finals. This defeat places them at a serious disadvantage coming into the second leg. Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez came up with goals that help them achieve a big victory. As a result, Barcelona are overwhelming favourites to qualify for the next round.

However, the Spanish club comes into the game on the back of a poor away form. The recent visits to Italy in order to play in the Champions League have also not been ended up as good results for Barcelona. As a result, this will be the only ray of hope for Roma as they look to achieve an incredible comeback.

Chelsea vs Stoke Betting Tips and Predictions

Chelsea take on Stoke City looking to extend their impressive run of form against Mark Hughes and his team. Earlier in the campaign, the blues were able to get a 4-0 victory over this opponent. Now, Chelsea are aiming for a seventh consecutive victory at home. This match represents the best possible option for Chelsea, as Stoke City have been playing as a relegation material over the last few months. The club has been very poor at the back and have conceded a lot of goals. There is a huge amount of pressure on Mark Hughes in order to deliver positive results, but this may not be the game where he comes up with a great tactical battle.

Hughes will know that facing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge happens to be one of the difficult aspects. Since Stoke have a game against Newcastle a couple of days later, it is better to focus on this game. Hence, Chelsea are available at a very strong price of 1.16 to win the game. Even a draw looks highly unlikely and this is why it is priced at 8.50. Stoke city are rank outsiders to win the match and it is not surprising to see them at 19.00. Since Chelsea are in a very short price, it would make sense to opt for a game that produces less than 2.5 goals from Stoke City. Interestingly, Stoke have been able to score in the last couple of the matches.

They are presently five points ahead of second-placed Manchester United, who face a testing game against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

The Baggies had a run of nine winless during the backend of the previous campaign, and they appear to have entered a similar streak with no victory since the second game of the campaign. Despite this, they could be backed at 12/1 for a win with Betfair. Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola's side have not put a foot wrong since the start of the season, and they will fancy their chances of maintaining their 100 percent record on the road.
