Which team is most likely to win the world cup?
To find out which team is most likely to win the world cup, the best thing to do would be to compare the odds. For example, at most betting sites today, you will see that Brazil are currently the favourites to win the tournament outright. They are currently priced, on average, at around 4.00 in European decimal odds. If you convert this into UK fractional odds, it works out to 3/1, and in American/moneyline odds, it works out to 300.
France are currently the second odds-on favourite to win the world cup at 7.50 (which is 13/2, or 650), and England are currently the third odds-on favourites to win at around 8.50 (which is 15/2, or 750).
How are these Serie A players fairing in the league?
At the time of writing, Napoli (Kim Min-Jae – South Korea, and Hirving Lozano – Mexico) are currently top of the league with 41 points after 15 games. They have won 13, drawn 2 and lost 0, and they have scored 37 and let in just 12. AC Milan (Rafael Lao – Portugal and Theo Hernandez – France) are in second place with 33 points. They’ve won 10, drawn 3, and lost 2, and they have scored 29 and let in 15.
Juventus (Weston McKennie – USA, and Dusan Vlahovic – Serbia) are currently in third place with 31 points. This iconic Italian football team has won 9 games, drawn 4, and lost 2, and they have scored 24 and let in 7. Lazio (Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – Serbia) are in fourth place with 30 points. They have won 9, drawn 3, and lost 3, and they have scored 26 and let in 11.
Inter (Lautaro Martinez – Argentina) are in fifth place with 30 points. They’ve won 10, drawn none, and lost 5, and they have scored 22 and let in 12. Roma (Paulo Dybala – Argentina) are in 7th with 27 points. They’ve won 8, drawn 3, and lost 4, and they have scored 18 and let in 14. Finally, Sampdoria (Abdelhamid Sabiri – Morocco) are in 19th place with just 6 points. They have only won 1 game all season, drawing 2, and losing 12. They have scored 12 and let in 29.
Which team is likely to win Serie A?
Again, the best thing to do would be to turn to the major sports betting sites to see what they are currently offering for Serie A teams. A sensible bet would be to put your money on Napoli (the current odds-on favourites to win the league). AC Milan are second odds-on favourites, which is just in front of Inter, Juventus and Atalanta. Napoli are currently priced at 1.45 (4/9, or -225). The only thing to remember is that no bet is guaranteed, even if the odds do seem in favour of your preferred team.
