Top European Team in World Cup Odds

Spain is the defending World Cup champion, but they are not even favored to be the best European team at World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

That honor – and measure of respect from odds makers – goes to Germany, which is currently a 2/1 favorite to be the last European team standing. The Spanish are second, according to Bovada at 3/1.

Belgium, considered a solid underdog bet to win it all, is next at 6/1 with the French at 9/1. France bombed four years ago and faces pressure to advance beyond the group stage in 2014.

Italy is always dangerous and their veteran-heavy team is 12/1 on the top team from Europe odds list. They are tied with the Netherlands, whose lower odds owes more to the fact they are in a difficult group.

Greece is the European long shot (a role they played to perfection in Euro 2004) at 80/1.
