Group E always looked like the easiest of the World Cup groups and our opinion hasn’t changed after the first games. It also looked like one of the easiest to pick the outright winner, with France a cut above the rest despite Switzerland being the seeded side. Read on for our current thoughts on who will be the outright group winner along with live betting odds comparison and our betting tips for how to profit from Group E.

France always looked destined to win this group whilst Honduras were clearly the side likely to finish bottom and so it was no surprise when the French easily saw off a highly physical Honduras on Sunday night. It may be early days in Group E but this one looks done and dusted with Switzerland’s stoppage time win over Ecuador seemingly putting the group on course for a predictable finish of France, Switzerland, Ecuador and Honduras.

France are now ranked as 40/85 favourites in the outright group winner betting and just 1/14 to qualify whilst Switzerland are just 8/11 to finish second. There could yet be some upsets and twists here but we don’t see it and so our main betting tip is to go for the quadpot – all four teams in the correct order – as outlined above.

The best way to do that is with Sky Bet’s tricast market of France/Switzerland/Ecuador a bet which, at even money, looks superb value to us, with Honduras worth considering to end the group without earning a single point.
