One of the great ways to get the most out of your betting is to go shopping around for some World Cup odds. Remember the important rule that you are not limited to just having an account with one bookmaker, you have register for many and then just pick the one with the best odds for your particular market option when it comes down to it. As usual with World Cup betting, jumping on some bets before the tournament kicks off should lead you to some bigger ante post value in prices.

So to the betting markets in World Cup 2014 odds. The most popular one is the outright winner market, because everyone wants to be right here and basically you have a one in 32 shot at being right. Truthfully though, looking at 2014 World Cup betting odds, that is probably only a one in four shot with host nation Brazil along with Argentina, Germany and Spain dominating the markets. The likelihood is that the winner will come one of those big four at the 2014 World Cup.

Here you can compare the odds for world cup outright bets as well as prices for indivdiual World Cup matches:

Brazil have been trading as 3/1 favourites in 2014 World Cup Odds and the host nation have a huge amount of expectancy on their shoulders. Will they be able to deliver in front of their own fans? Bookmakers have been unable to split the challenges of Argentina and Germany, as both are expected to put up very strong challenges to get their hands on the title, with Paddy Power running them as joint second favourites at a price of 5/1 to win the World Cup outright.

Reigning champions Spain are back at 7/1 with online betting site William Hill and for many represent a lot of value still. They are proven winners and have been the best in the world over the last six years and now have the chance to double up on their first World Cup title earned back at South Africa 2010. The Red Fury surely aren't done yet, as they still have the class and talent to play most other nations off the park.

But the markets are so extensive that you can already look far beyond just the Outright Winner category with your online bookmaker. World Cup odds on the Group markets are of great interest, as this can return some quick profit from your Brazil 2014 betting. There usually aren't too many surprises in the groups, simply because of the seedings and how the draw is made, and you can consider the likes of Brazil, Argentina, Germany and even Switzerland and Belgium as bankers in group betting, and throwing them into an accumulator could return even more profit.

There are some tough groups to call, like Group D which has been labeled the Group of Death as it houses England, Uruguay, Costa Rica and Italy. That is a pretty wide open group and that is reflected in World Cup betting odds, as Italy are narrow 7/4 favourites with Bet365 ahead of Uruguay's price of 15/8. Roy Hodgson's England are back at 5/2 in what should be a three way scrap for the top two places to get through to the round of sixteen. Make a correct call on a tight group like that and you will find even more profit for yourself.

One of the other most interesting, but one of the more difficult to call of the World Cup markets, is the top goalscorer field. The picture has changed a lot since 2010, but Argentina star Lionel Messi has been dominating the market as outright favourite at a price of 8/1 with Bet Victor. He will get his chances, especially with Argentina in an easy group to start off with. Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo is priced as 14/1 joint second favourite alongside some other world class talents like Neymar, Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero. Will Ronaldo be able to carry a fairly average Portugal side far enough to challenge for the Golden Boot?

A slightly safer market in comparison to picking an outright winner is the "To Reach Final" markets. Odds in here will be shorter than picking an outright winner, simply because there is more of a safety net, not having to actually go on and win the tournament. But even safer value can be found in the "To Reach Semi Final' market where the strong challengers Brazil, Argentina, Germany and Spain can all be snapped up at around a price of even money just to make it to the final four. If picking teams out of 32 still sounds like a tough call, remember that you will only really be selecting from a small list of nations.

Hoping England go far? Well, there is nothing wrong with a patriotic bet from the heart though, and you can look at England Team Specials. So take the time now to look around at the bookmakers, and make the most of some early FIFA World Cup 2014 odds.
