Football could actually be coming home! England now second favourites
England are now the clear second favourites in the World Cup outright betting market with our football traders.
Following Tuesday night’s heroics punters have piled into the Three Lions’ chances. And the sheer weight of money has forced the trading department to cut their odds into 7/2 (from 4/1).
Brazil remain the market leaders at 11/4, with France occupying third spot with odds of 4/1.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “The Three Lions gamble is in full swing. Punters are piling into their odds of winning left, right and centre as they are convinced it really is coming home.”
She added: “If Gareth Southgate’s men are crowned 2018 champions it will be the most expensive day in bookies’ history.”
