Three Outside Betting Tips for the World Cup

France – 25/1 with Coral.

Nasri or not, France pose a threat to everyone and judging by their World Cup pattern of recent times, 2014 should see another French resurgence.

A dismal outing four years ago will have longed to be put right by the French side and Group F provides them with the perfect opportunity to do just that. They possess quality in all areas and players capable of seeing off Switzerland, Ecuador and Honduras before potentially meeting Bosnia, Nigeria or Iran in the second round. From there on it’s the quarters, and that’s anyone’s game.

We saw France's resilience in their European play-off in overturning a 2-0 first leg defeat in Ukraine to progress 3-2 on aggregate and it's this ability to perform under pressure and unhinge themselves from sticky situations that make France dark horses to win the World Cup in Brazil, 16 years on from their maiden World Cup triumph.

Columbia – 33/1 with Coral.

Since 1998 a 16-year World Cup hiatus has finally been ended for Colombia mainly due to their new breed of attacking players – spearheaded by Radamel Falcao. 73 goals in his last 100 club games speaks for itself, but an injury plagued debut season at Monaco means it's touch-and-go whether he'll make Colombia's final squad.

There are plenty of men ready to step up in Falcao's absence. Porto's 23-goal striker Jackson Martinez will have the support of the attacking combination of James Rodriguez, Carlos Bacca and Adrian Ramos – 43 goals and 22 assists between the trio this season ensure the Colombian attack cannot be taken lightly and could fire us to a 33/1 winning World Cup betting tip.

Tougher tests for Colombia will lie beyond Group C, but on home continent soil they will be confident and more than capable of upsetting the odds as the South American nations look to continue their dominance of winning every World Cup hosted in the continent.

Ivory Coast – 150/1 with Coral.

Group C also comes as a welcome relief to Ivory Coast who found themselves in consecutive Groups of Death in 2006 and 2010 but still have the nucleus of the their team from South Africa.

The Elephants now possess one of the most in-form players in Yaya Toure; 21 goals from midfield this season epitomises his ability in set pieces and bulldozing through any defence whether they’re wilting or not. Form continues to ooze throughout the squad – Wilfried Bony finished with 25 goals in his debut season with Swansea and Seydou Doumbia topped Russia’s scoring charts. Even Gervinho found form again for Roma and leading man Didier Drogba is desperate for that international trophy his personal collection craves.

It will be a major upset if Ivory Coast do triumph in Brazil, but with a favourable draw and hugely experienced squad both domestically and internationally, this is the last chance to make good on their golden generation.
