England 8/1 for World Cup - Best Price

09 June 2010 02:22
As we can now count down the days on one hand till the World Cup starts Paddy Power have pushed England's odds out to 8/1 from 15/2 to win this year's World Cup. It’s the best price in the market place and one that is sure to attract throngs of patriotic support. All the talk yesterday from Paddy Power HQ was that Argentina had received more bets on them to win the tournament than Fabio Capello’s team. Now Paddy Power have taken more bets on the Dutch as well despite the injury to Arjen Robben people keep on backing the Dutch to come good.  England had been as short as 6/1 a week ago and were as short as 11/2 up until 11th May although the 8/1 can be fully expected to entice the patriotic punt as World Cup fever takes a firm grip on the country over the next few days.   With England’s odds yo-yoing Paddy Power are betting on how big their drifting odds will go before the World Cup gets underway. The bookie offers just 4/6 that 8/1 is the biggest price England punters can get at Paddy Power whilst its 11/4 they drift even further to 17/2 and 7/2 that England go as big as 9/1. Darren Haines, spokesman for Paddy Power, said: “Short of Wayne Rooney breaking a metatarsal the betting suggests this could be as big as England get at the World Cup. Now may be the right time to back England if you think they can go all the way but if you don’t fancy them then you can bet on just how big England’s odds go before the tournament starts.”  World Cup Latest4/1        Spain9/2        Brazil13/2      Argentina8/1        England9/1        Holland14/1      Germany16/1      Italy20/1      France25/1      Portugal50/1      Ivory Coast60/1      Serbia70/1      Bar What Will Be England’s Biggest World Cup Odds At Paddy Power?4/6        8/111/4      17/27/2        9/19/1        10/150/1      11/1 or higher Applies to odds at paddypower.com before 3pm Friday June 11 Click here to bet and get a FREE £20 BET
