This year will mark the first time I have lived outside of England during a World Cup, and while this should prove beneficial in some regards – particularly in that I can avoid the jingoistic fever and over-hyped expectations for the England team that the British media will stir into a frenzy – it does mean I can’t have a punt on the winners, as gambling is (as far as I know) illegal here in the States. Regardless, I thought it might be quite interesting to have a look at what the bookmakers at home think is likely to happen this summer, and see how far we agree with them. Spain are quite clearly favourites to win the competition, and it’s difficult to find a strong case to argue against them, even if Brazil currently top FIFA’s World Rankings.
