The latest odds on England to win the World Cup as Paddy Power announce a new free bets offer – they’re offering 100/1 on the Three Lions to win the tournament!
“We still believe, we still believe”, the England fans will sing. But do we?
That’s the key component of England’s World Cup adventure this summer. The expectation is at its lowest since the 1980’s. No-one believes. No-one thinks football is coming home.
This can only be a positive thing for the Three Lions, who in my eyes look set to have a profitable venture to Brazil under Roy Hodgson.
The 100/1 with Paddy Power for Roy’s Boy’s to win the trophy is far-fetched, but those that are predicting a slump similar to the World Cup 2010, where they were eliminated with a whimper in the second-round after scraping through the group, are likely to be left out of pocket.
This England side have the attacking talent and a very underrated potential route to the latter stage.
They look good value to make the quarter-finals.

Firm offers 100/1 for England top win World Cup 2014
Paddy Power have announced they are offering a massive ‘enhanced’ price on England to win the 2014 World Cup in Brazil – a MASSIVE 100/1!!More details below!
A group consisting of Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica may have famously led FA head honcho Greg Dyke to jokingly pretend to slit his throat but you can guarantee that all three of those sides will fearing taking on England too.
The opening game with Italy in roaring heat of Manaus has all the hallmarks of a low scoring, possession-based, snooze and Hodgson has the tactical capabilities to set his side up to be hard to beat.
From there, it’s the match with Uruguay and Luis Suarez that will probably decide England’s fate.
People seem to be forgetting that the South Americans only just squeezed through their qualification zone via a play-off and despite the obvious talents of Suarez and Edison Cavani, their defensive play leaves a lot to be desired.
England have enough to beat Uruguay and if they do a point or victory against an inferior Costa Rica should be enough to send them through. Striking a bet for England to finish Group D with seven points at 5/1 with BetVictor looks a tasty wager.
A second round clash with one of Colombia, Ivory Coast, Greece and Japan should be very winnable, which leaves England facing a tough quarter-final with a big boy.
That’s where their tournament is likely to end and at 4/1 with Paddy Power it’s a bet bursting with value.
For those that think the Group Stage will be England’s stage of elimination, you can get 5/4 with Paddy while the second round knock-out is an 11/4 shot with the same firm.
