The World Cup bookmakers now have Spain at odds-on to win World Cup Group E, with La Roja signing off for the Nations League with a 1-0 victory over Portugal on Tuesday 27 September. Perhaps Alvaro Morata will fire the team to great heights in Qatar, while Luis Enrique can also call upon experienced generals such as Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.

However, Germany might be more of a fancied World Cup bet at odds-against to top the section, with Hansi Flick seeing his team play out an entertaining 3-3 draw at Wembley and he will be encouraged by the performance and brace from Kai Havertz, with the Chelsea man potentially leading the line for the European side.

Do Japan and Costa Rica stand a chance of qualifying? According to the World Cup betting odds, it’s the former who are most likely to come through although they are still regarded as outsiders, while the Costa Ricans might find themselves out of their depth despite coming through qualifying.

The bet to have is whether it will be Spain or Germany that finish in top spot and if the teams draw with each other during the group stage, then it could come down to which team has the best goal difference in terms of going through and potentially earning an easier clash in the last sixteen.
