Posted by

719px-WC-2014-Brasil.svgTHE World Cup is here and no doubt many of you have been stroking your chins wondering how can you make a bit of money out of it.

Never fear because the ‘expert’ tipsters at Traleetoday.ie have the bets of the competition.

1. England not to qualify out of their group 6/4. Our nearest and dearest have been pitted against Copa America champions Uruaguay and Pirlo’s swaggering Italians making this a particularly difficult group, the Amazonian heat won’t do them any favours either.


Ronaldo…can play a bit.

2. Paddy Power are offering 18/1 for the obnoxiously ripped Cristiano Ronaldo to be top scorer, he could make up the most of that in games against Ghana and the US alone.

3. Chile who made a fantastic impression in 2010 have only improved since then.  Their star man, Juventus’ attacking midfielder with an eye for goal Arturo Vidal is 100/1 to win the Golden Ball. May be worth a look as an outside bet.

4. World Cup cliche alert: Many people’s dark-horses, Belgium can get on your betting slip by opting for a double on Lukaku being top scorer and Brazil as champions at 100/1. “Money in the bank,” we’re reliably informed!

5. Also Boylesports are offering 40/1 for Kevin De Bruyne to top the assists charts. The Belgian picked up six assists in 11 games for the lowlanders in the run up to the competition.

6. Daniel Sturridge to be England’s top scorer 3/1. Let’s face it, it will only take about two goals.

7. Here’s a cheeky one for Liverpool supporters; Paddy Power are offering 7/2 for Luis Suarez to outscore the entire England team.

Luis Suarez eyes up the odds on No.7.

8. Staying with the Uruguayans, who, don’t forget have won it twice before in South America, Bet Fair will give you 300/1 on a Uruguay Champions and Lionel Messi top scorer double.

9. Do you remember who beat Spain in the last World Cup? That’s right Ottmar Hitzfeld’s charges Switzerland. With a defence as tight as a duck’s you-know-what, you can get their keeper Diego Benaglio at 80/1 for Golden Glove.

10. Thomas Muller, the epitome of a crafty German, was joint top scorer in South Africa. Paddy Power are giving you 33/1 for him to repeat that in Brazil.
