You may be licking your wounds if you have been backing some of the favourite teams that have already been knocked out of the World Cup this year! However, there are of course still plenty of betting opportunities now the attention is turning towards the Semi Finals.
France have now been catapulted right to the top of the outright winner betting market, and if you have a sneaking suspicion that they are going to be the winners of the World Cup it will certainly be worth checking out their odds of doing so.
In fact, having checked through the outright betting markets at many of our featured betting sites, France are on offer at odds of 2/1 to be crowned champions at sites like Betfred.
However, with England not far behind them art 5/2 and with Belgium on offer at 11/4 and also Croatia being in with a chance of winning at odds of 4/1 there isn’t much separating those teams on the betting markets!
France vs Belgium
The first Semi Final that will be playing off in a few days time is of course the match between France and Belgium and you will not be too surprised to learn that France are the 6/4 favourites to come out on top on that match in the first 90 minutes of play time.
The match could of course go the way of a draw and if you think that is going to be the most likely outcome after 90 minutes the odds available are around the 9/4 mark. Belgium is the slight underdog to win that match but their odds are appealing for Belgium fans being as they are 21/10!
Harry Kane to be the Top Goal Scorer?
If there has been one outstanding player so far in the FIFA World Cup matches it is young Harry Kan who cannot help but bang in goal after goal and fans of his will have already backed him to be the top goal scorer in the tournament.
Those fans will be counting their winnings soon if his current odds are anything to go by, for all betting sites now have reduced the odds on him being the top goal scorer and the best odds you can currently secure on him being so are desperately low at just 1/7.
Unless there is a miracle in the Semi Finals and the final game then he does look likely to be the top goal scorer, but as there have been plenty of miracles and surprises in this tournament so far you may fancy backing another player to score more goals than him and any other player too.
If so the players that could just do that if everything does fall into place include the likes of Romelu Lukaku, whose odds are 8/1 that could be the top goal scorer and you can also get odds of 16/1 on Antoine Griezmann and 20/1 on Kylian Mbappe too, but Kane does look a solid bet it has to be said!
