World Cup 2014

Outright Betting

Rodriguez now 11/10 to be Top Goalscorer following Neymar injury whilst Germany now the new 9/4 favourites to win the 2014 World Cup.

The 2014 World Cup saw France exit on Friday night following a 1-0 defeat to Germany, who are now the new 9/4 favourites, from 4/1, to win the tournament.

Brazil, who recorded a 2-1 victory over Colombia, have been eased out to 23/10 from 7/4 following the injury sustained by Neymar.

Rodriguez’ nearest rival in the betting is Argentina’s, Lionel Messi, who has already netted four goals and is priced at 9/4 to steal the crown from Rodriguez. Germany’s Thomas Muller has also netted four goals and can be backed at 11/2 whilst the Netherlands’ Robin van Persie, who has scored three goals, is priced at 10/1.

Punters have supported Germany into favourites to win the World Cup for the first time as a unified nation and no doubt we are sure to witness a cracker of a semi-final between them and host nation Brazil.

In the Top Goalscorer table, Rodriguez holds a two goal advantage but with Messi, Muller and Van Persie’s respective sides still in contention, we are seeing an equal amount of interest in all 3 players.
