History of World Cup Free Bets

Being able to utilise free bets during the World Cup isn’t new but the breadth and choice means this summer’s tournament is set to be the best ever for bookie offers.
Which Teams Will Reach the Final Eight?
One of the most popular online World Cup betting options for punters is which eight teams will make it to the quarter finals.
Germany and Brazil are both rated as 1/2 shots to make it to the last eight with Bet365. It’s a short price but accurately reflects the strength of two sides with nine World Cups between them.
England have a tough task to finish above Belgium in Group G but the Three Lions will fancy their chances of making it to the final eight at 5/6 with Bet365 even if they finish second.
Finally, Uruguay look decent option to use free World Cup bet at 7/4 with 188Bet with a potential second round match against Portugal who aren’t at the levels they were in Euro 2016.
Best World Cup 2018 Betting Offers
Many people approach their World Cup betting from a position of confidence. If you’re convinced that Germany will go all the way and win the tournament for a fifth time, for example, it’s worth taking an early price while you can.

Ever since launching their betting exchange, Betfair have been known as one of the industry’s most innovative brands. Their market coverage on both the exchange and sportsbook means adding Betfair to your collection of bookies is a very smart move for the World Cup and they’re offering all new customers a huge 15/1 on Harry Kane to be England’s top goalscorer.
Kane is perhaps the best striker in world football at the moment let alone the England team so that is a price well worth snapping up.
Paddy Power are one of the most recognisable betting brands in the world. They have a great collection of ante post markets for the World Cup including offering 11/2 on England reaching the World Cup final.
If you don’t like the look of their 2018 World Cup betting offers, you can still get a £20 free bet when you open a new account with Paddy Power which you can use on any sports market.
Not sure that England will make it as far as the final? William Hill are offering 5/2 on the Three Lions making it to the final four while new customers will get a £30 free bet when they bet £10 with their brand new William Hill account.
For those of you who aren’t sure that England will even win their group, Sportingbet have a tempting offer of 10/1 on Gareth Southgate’s men finishing second in Group G. That’s a good price given the sheer amount of talent in the squad of England’s main group stage rivals, Belgium.

World Cup 2018 Betting Tips
Now that you’ve seen some of the great World Cup betting offers available to you, what should you be backing?
Well, we think that Germany are the worthy favourites to win the tournament at 9/2 with Coral. Argentina could offer a good value alternative option at 9/1 with Bet365.
Belgium’s quality means they are no longer viewed as dark horses. If they have a good tournament you can be sure Romelu Lukaku will score his fair share of their goals which makes him a good top goalscorer bet at 20/1 with Coral.
