2018 FIFA World Cup Odds ReleasedPublished December 10, 2010 by OCR Editor
Controversy continues to rage over FIFA’s choice of Russia and Qatar.
As controversy still rages over the selection last week of Russia and Qatar as hosts of the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup, attention is already turning to sports betting on which countries could win the tournament.
The England FA is reportedly planning a campaign to change the way the host of the tournament is selected, with speculation that it will gain help from other spurned nations, including the United States, Australia, Spain and the Netherlands.World Cup Odds
Meanwhile, British bookmaker William Hill is looking ahead to 2018 and has already released odds on which country will win the tournament, the order of which looks quite similar to the odds for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The notable difference between the two tournaments is that host Brazil leads reigning World and European champion Spain in betting in 2014, while Spain leads Brazil in betting for 2018.
