Hawk, can you let us know the top 5 favourites and their odds with one of your American bookies?

Cheers if possible.

Interesting. UK bookies have the same odds as i checked. I thought 4th favourites for us was generous and maybe the odds had shortened with UK bookies because of English people betting on England.

So we are really 4th favourites with bookies. Ahead of Argentina, Uruguay and France.

Because of the draw, the bookies think we will make the semis btw (top four favourites - two on either side of the draw).

I like England because Kane is a finisher and he’s hot at the right time and England seems like they’re emotionally in check. I took Brazil on my bracket because I don’t like to bet against history (no offense).

Yes, Kane is a talent. Having a striker who scores at an average of about 1 goal a game (at all levels) is massive. You're basically starting games a goal up.

No offence taken btw. I went with Brazil about 9 months ago when they had pissed it in qualifying plus I was confident they would bounce back.

Just absolutely top notch fixtures.

For the American banter guys if you haven't been following and are thinking of doing so, now is the time as the knockout phase starts tomorrow. This is what it's all about

England play on Tuesday.
Thanks m8

Really? I feel like my chosen winners are obvious aside from Argentina beating France. But France are completely average and don't have Messi. Argentina are worse, but they do have him. Either way, Brazil would clearly beat both.

Portugal are dreadful aside from Ronaldo, whereas Uruguay are decent and have the strikers.

Croatia vs Spain is a difficult one, but football is mainly a battle of midfield, and Croatia have a far superior midfield.

Croatia and Belgium have impressed, wouldn't be surprised if they do better than my bracket says.

Pretty much agree with all of this except I think Spain would have too much for Croatia even with their midfielders. It's not like Spain don't have quality midfielders plus they are stronger everywhere else on the pitch.

But you are right games are often won in midfield. Guys should remember Colombia have a reject from the worst Aston Villa side of all time in theirs. England have the players to control it imo.

Quite nervous for this.

I'll be gutted if Messi goes out. Unless of course it's against England in the final.

Messi has had a haircut and a beard trimming. Looks smart. That's good.
