The 2018 World Cup Betting Favorite: Germany +460 

The defending World Cup Champions sure look ready to beat their competition into the ground in 2018. Germany has a fantastic, deep, squad led by the likes of Thomas Mueller and Toni Kroos. Kroos and Mueller are the stars on a team without a Ronaldo or Messi like star.

That’s exactly the way that manager Joachim Lowe likes it. Lowe is easily one of the greatest soccer strategists the world has ever seen. He so good that Germany scored 5 goals in Brazil at the last World Cup off set pieces. That was more than any other team in the World Cup.

But, Germany isn’t without a possible issue. The issue is a big one. It’s so big that backing Germany might be foolish. Germany’s captain, goalie Manuel Neuer, hasn’t played soccer since last September.

That’s could be a big enough problem to look past Germany to win it all.

The World Cup Smart Pick: Argentina +950

Two words and one name sums up Argentina, Lionel Messi. The greatest soccer player to ever live will once again hit the pitch for La Abiceleste in the quest for a World Cup. Although Argentina offers higher odds in 2018 than they did in 2014, Messi might have a better shot of winning the World Cup this year than he did in 2014.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is healthy. So is Gonzalo Higuan. With Di Maria on the left side, Messi in the middle, Aguero up top and Higuan coming off the bench, Argentina should have no trouble hitting the ball into the back of the net. Javier Mascherano leads the defense.  That makes for a super competitive Argentinian squad.

The 2018 World Cup Longshot Pick: Portugal +2500

If Portugal is to repeat their UEFA Euro 2016 Championship at the 2018 World Cup, a player must step up for the venerable Ronaldo. Christiano Ronaldo should be in good enough form for Portugal to win if someone else gives him some help. I think it could happen because Portugal has tightened up heading into this World Cup.
