    I do like my football but wouldn't usually be one for having a wager on it. Have had a few World Cup nibbles for extra interest.

    France have a squad full of up & coming talent, its time they made there mark on the international scene.

    Outright Winner: France 7/1

    France to win & Griezmann top scorer 40/1

    Has anyone seen the diabolical prices Sky have on their England request a bet/specials ?

    It's not often I see prices that raise eyebrows but to think there are people in this world requesting prices on the likes of:

    England to score 6+ goals 2/7
    Harry Kane to score 3+ goals 8/15
    Kane to score 4 + goals 6/5
    England to score 10+ goals 7/4
    Jamie Vardy to score 5+ goals 10/1
    England to score 15+ goals 12/1

    Shame they don't quote the other side....

    Couple of plays I have made:

    Kane not to score a goal 6/1
    All 3 England group games to be under 2.5 11/2
    Spain to win group, England to lose in quarters 7/2
    Brazil, France, England, Spain and Germany all to make quarters 7/1

    I too had the bet 5 get 10 offer from Skybet, so used it to place a fiver on Germany essentially risk free, then the free 10 on Brazil/Griezemann double

    Then backed Brazil with Bill Hill on their 5 free bet for each win offer. Should win all their group games so net me at least 15 of free bets

    Got stuck into this over the last few days. Main bet is Uruguay @31/1 with decent back up on Belguim @11s and the mighty Morocco @500s. Also backed the latter to make it out the group. Used the Hills offer on Cavani top scorer, doesn't always finish as he should but gets in some great positions, hoping this is the tournament it all comes together.

    Probably worth you cashing out then going in again at enhanced price, I just had an email from Sky saying they’ve boosted Spain to 7/1 so it looks like a few will be out to get them.
    Work out the maths but it should pay....

    I've cashed out for a 7% loss and can back them at bigger prices as you suggest but unsure if I should. This can only have a negative impact, especially as the manager appears to have been really popular with the players.

    I'll be leaving my Spain outright bet, and it wasn't for a significant amount - but I wouldn't think the extra 1 pt makes up for having no manager?

    Although I'm trying to see it in a way that it won't make a huge difference, but it all depends on who is stil lthere to pick the team. They'll still play the same way, and they're really experienced players.
