Favorites to win the title as seen by the large British bookmaker William Hill are Brazil, who not only has the home field advantage, but also a really strong team, giving you 4,3 times your money as a winner. Following Brazil, William Hill thinks that Spain, Argentina and Germany all have an equal chance of winning, 5,0 times your money as winners of the world cup.
The 2006 world cup winners Italy who cruised through their qualification group without any major problems, gives a great odds of 20, while uncontrollable Portugal gives odds 33 should they win the title, being great odds given their great teams and their current form.
