Surprisingly Cristiano Ronaldo is not the favorite to score first. The world’s best player is trading with odds as good as 6/1 at Ladbrokes to be the first goalscorer. Also worth looking is Germany’s Lukas Podolski, who loves to score at World Cups, he’s 7/1 at Bet 365.

Predicting the correct score is one of the most difficult things to bet on in soccer. The favorite results with betting sites is 1-1, if you think that’s going to be the score then go to Bet Fred for odds of 7/1. Germany are so good going forward, I like the look of 19/1 for 3-0 win at 19/1 with Bet Victor.


5. Don’t Bet on 0-0

There’s hasn’t been a 0-0 tie so far in this World Cup, and we’re all praying it won’t happen in this game. I hope people wouldn’t be spoil sports and bet on a scoreless game but if you feel you must, Ladbrokes has odds of 15/1 for 0-0 snooze fest.
