Germany World Cup 2018 odds are, unsurprisingly, among the highest of all the participating teams. The fact that this team won the trophy during the last World Cup is not the least decisive factor in their odds being so high.
However, we have reason to think that the team is just as powerful as it was four years ago. For example, they have won every single match in the qualifiers to the tournament. What’s more, they’ve lost only a few friendly matches in the recent years too.
One of the losses was suffered against Brazil, which is one of the main contenders this year that can bring odds on Germany winning World Cup 2018 down very easily.

Odds on Germany to win World Cup 2018 are also high because of the excessive number of talented and experienced players available in the ranks of Germany’s national team.
Here are a few mentions:
- Thomas Muller
- Timo Werner
- Mario Gomez
- Lars Stindl
- Sandro Wagner
- Leroy Sane
- Mesut Ozil

- Toni Kroos
- Sami Khedira
- Sebastian Rudy
- Julian Draxler
- Mats Hummels
- Joshua Kimmich
- Jerome Boateng
- Antonio Rudiger
- Benedikt Howedes

Joachim Low is also an important part of the team as a coach and a very experienced one at that. Managing such a squad, it’s no wonder he could make Germany to win World Cup 2018 odds surpass those of all other teams.
What’s more, Germany has been showing amazing performance for many years now, having reaching quarter-finals every single time on 19 occasions except once 80 years ago.
They have also not ended up in a 4th or lower place since 1998, which can’t be said about any other team today. This certainly makes odds on Germany winning 2018 World Cup persuasive and believable.
Germany Odds to Win World Cup; World Cup 2018 Germany Fixtures
Speaking of those odds, pretty much every sports betting site in the UK places Germany at the top of the list or somewhere very close to the top. It’s not unusual to find betting odds Germany to win World Cup 2018 to be around 9/2 or 5/1.
For an outright bet, these are amazing odds that are usually matched by Brazil only. The other teams have odds that are smaller than 5/1.
Germany has won the World Cup four times before and winning it again would let Germany catch up with Brazil in terms of the times they won the trophy. So far, Brazil is also the only one team to have defended the trophy in the competition following their victory.
If odds Germany win World Cup 2018 were proved right, Germany would become the second team in history to successfully defend the world champions title.
Germany World Cup 2018 Odds
In this year’s tournament, Germany is playing in Group F against three opponents:
Neither is a huge threat to the best team in the world according to the ranking today. Therefore, they don’t really make odds for Germany to win World Cup 2018 any lower.
What’s interesting is that there’s a good chance that Germany will have to face Brazil in the group of 16. This would be the match between two favourites and would lead to an interesting tournament later on by eliminating one of the favourites so early in the game.
Other than that, we’re pretty sure that Germany will easily reach quarter-finals and even semi-finals. In our opinion, Germany world cup 2018 odds for that are very high.
Germany is the current world champion but there are many teams willing to take their title back. Still, odds Germany World Cup 2018 are better than those of almost all their opponents.
