    World Cup 2018

    I know this isn't general horse racing, but a big sporting event and lots of people will have a bet on it.

    My outright winner is Spain at 6/1 (not backed it yet) Will do soon though

    Not looked in to the top scorer markets yet but anyone else going to be punting on this?

    Yes Kev , I don't do much football betting , but usually get involved in the Euro's and world cup . Mainly i do the half time / full time
    Reversed , Unless it's Brazil v australia (example ) then i just do Aus H/T brz F/T.
    You get my drift !, usually pays around 25-1 , so you only need a couple to pop in and
    your'e in the money.

    Can’t see past Germany for the winner and there is great value in Thomas Muller as top scorer e/w at 33/1

    Germany or Spain for the winner.

    Cavani for top goalscorer at 25s - The Golden Boot is usually won in the group stages with four of the last six winners (five of seven if you account for joint winners in 1994) scoring at least half their total in the group stages, Uruguay are in a very weak group and should score a decent amount against poor opposition, Cavani top scored in South American qualifying and was top scorer in Ligue 1 this season, so he looks overpriced when compared to some of the bigger names at shorter prices.

    PP are 22/1 - 6 places - Cavani

    Case was so good, I couldn't resist the each way odds.

    I see Sky has a special offer, if you back an outright winner before the tourny and they are knocked out, you get your money back as a free bet.

    Fancy France or even Belgium to put in a good effort this time around and with Hardy giving some reasoning on the golden boot (Cavani) - Skybet have a France to win (as prefer their possible route to the final over Belgium’s) and Cavani top scorer 200-1 I will put some loose change on I think! Plus will also do them as singles - France 6-1 and money Back offer on Skybet and Cavani 28-1
