Paddy Power are offering new customers the chance to back any of the top four contenders for World Cup glory at great prices before the tournament gets underwayThe time has come for punters to nail their colours to the mast, to decide which nations will carry their cash ahead of the big kick-off in Brazil on June 12th.
|World Cup Winner Enhanced Prices
|Odds from Paddy Power - new customers only
|Brazil (3/1) now 8/1
|Argentina (5/1) now 12/1|
|Germany (6/1) now 14/1
|Spain (13/2) now 16/1|
Brazil are the market leaders at around 3/1 (4.0) but new Paddy Power customers can side with the host nation at a huge 8/1 (9.0) to emerge triumphant on home soil.
Success in the Confederations Cup last year will give Luis Felipe Scolari's side a confidence boost and at 8/1 (9.0) they are bound to be a popular pick.
It will come as little surprise to see Argetina second in the betting given their talented squad and the advantage that South American sides have enjoyed in previous tournaments held on the continent.
A forward line of Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Sergio Aguero is as fearsome as any in the competition and if their defence can restrict opposing sides, they clearly have enough firepower to blow away almost any team in the world.
Argentina are generally available at around 5/1 (6.0) but Paddy Power have enhanced their quote to 12/1 (13.0), almost three times the current industry best price.
Germany are the most fancied of the European contingent and Paddy Power have priced Joachim Low's side at 14/1 (15.0) to return with the trophy next month.
Given Spain's dominance of international football over the last six years they will have their supporters at around 13/2 (7.50) but new Paddy Power customers can take advantage of the 16/1 (17.0) available from the Irish bookmaker about Vincente Del Bosque's side defending their title.
