World Cup Group F Betting


Odds: 6.00

Qualifying form: Topped the South American qualifying group, as expected. Lost their first game to Uruguay, but from thereon in were almost flawless.

Previous best: Winners in 1978 and 1986

Key man: Lionel Messi 

One of the tournament’s headline acts, he'll be determined to add the World Cup to his collection of titles and further stake his claim as the greatest footballer ever.

Potential wildcard: Angel di Maria  

Operates in the shadows of Messi and Sergio Aguero for Argentina, but Di Maria is a talented player capable of creating magical moments of his own on a football pitch.

If they were a musical act they’d be…

The Eagles - They have suffered from poor management in the past, but there's no denying their ability.


Odds: 200.00

Qualifying form: Edged through ahead of Greece on goal difference. Their 30 goals made them one of the highest-scoring teams in European qualification.

Previous best: First appearance

Key man: Edin Dzeko – Goals goals goals in qualifying -10 in total - and Dzeko is a genuine shout for the Golden Boot if Bosnia are given a favourable draw.

Potential wildcard: Zvjezdan Misimović

Dzeko may be Bosnia’s main goal threat, but Misimovic still managed eight from attacking midfield. Developed a telepathic understanding with Dzeko at Wolfsburg and things are no different in the national side.

If they were a musical act they'd be...

Miley Cyrus - This multi-talented new kid on the block has the element of surprise.


Odds: 1500.00

Qualifying form: Not too shabby - topped a group that contained South Korea.

Previous best: First round in 1978, 1998 and 2006

Key man: Javad Nekounam - This central midfielder has amassed a remarkable 141 caps for Iran. Iran's captain, Nekounam is known for his passing and ability to bury the occasional piledriver.

Wildcard: Ashkan Dejagah - The Fulham midfielder is a tricky customer and could cause opponents a few problems.

If there were a musical act they'd be...

Jemini - Like the UK Eurovision entry, expect Iran to pick up 'nul points'.


Odds: 300.00

Qualifying form: Runaway winners of an easy group, containing Malawi, Kenya and Namibia, and then came through their play-off against Ethiopia.

Previous best: Last 16 in 1994 and 1998

Key man: John Obi Mikel - Doesn't score many goals, but offers calmness and quality in central midfield and was integral to the side's recent African Cup of Nations victory.

Potential wildcard: Emmanuel Emenike - The Fenerbache striker was Nigeria's leading marksman in qualifying, with three goals. If he can get among the goals, Nigeria could progress.

If there were a musical act they'd be...

Avicii - After spending a lot of time struggling to get noticed, this group are finally getting it together and performing to their potential.
