It is exactly one month away from the 2014 World Cup, so to celebrate we're look at many different odds throughout the week, starting with the outright champions selections.
With the anticipation for the World Cup growing more and more every day leading up to June 12, the betting offerings are also increasing. The outright champions market is one of the biggest before the tournament kicks off, so here are the odds with one month to go.
It's no surprise that Brazil comes in as the favourite, with odds of 4.00 currently available. Big Phil Scolari has named his prelimnary roster, which left out former Ballon d'Or winners Kaka and Ronaldinho, but still packs a lot of punch with the likes of Neymar, Hulk, and Dani Alves.
Argentina has jumped ahead into second favourites position with La Albiceleste being listed now at 5.50. This will be Messi's prime opportunity to entrench himself with the likes of Pelé and Maradona by winning the whole thing, and the Argentines do have one of the easiest routes to the final.
Germany comes in third with odds of 6.50 available for Die Mannschaft to lift its fourth world title. Joachim Low has brought his side to two consecutive semifinals, and with a star-studded cast that includes Thomas Mueller, Mario Gotze and the best goalkeeper in the world in Manuel Neuer, Germany certainly has the goods.
Defending champion Spain has dropped from second into fourth and is now available at 8.00. With a group that includes the Netherlands and Chile, the Spaniards will certainly have their work cut out for them. If they finished second in the group, they will more than likely find themselves in a round of 16 match with hosts Brazil -- a scenario which didn't end up so well for them in last year's Confederations Cup Final when they lost 3-0.
Darkhorse Belgium is fifth at 15.00, while Uruguay is at 26.00 to repeat its championship victory from Brazil 1950.
Portugal is at 34.00 to win its first ever championship, but if you're feeling very adventurous than why not look at CONCACAF sides Costa Rica or Honduras, who are both valued at 2501.00.
