Betting Tip: @ Uruguay to win Group A @ 11/10 with bet365

Some bookmakers are odds-on about Uruguay winning World Cup Group A, although bet365 have chalked up 11/10 and that’s a backable price considering the teams that lie in wait.

There is little doubt that La Celeste have the best squad out of the four that comprise this section, with Oscar Tabarez continuing to remain in charge and this continuity should serve Uruguay well.

The presence of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani in attack is a major positive for the South American side, with the Uruguayans finishing second in the CONMEBOL standings with a creditable nine wins from eighteen games played.

If this was Argentina lining up in Group A, you could expect them to be trading at 2/5, although Uruguay have a squad packed with experienced campaigners including captain Diego Godin who will be joined by Atletico Madrid team-mate Jose Maria Gimenez.

Russia are the tournament hosts and home advantage could be enough to sweep them to second in the section and a place in the last sixteen.

It’s hard to judge a team who haven’t needed to qualify for the tournament, with the majority of players based in Russia and their defeats against Portugal and Mexico in the Confederations Cup last summer doesn’t bode well.

Egypt look interesting although African sides don’t have a particularly strong record when it comes to qualifying, although the presence of Mohamed Salah is a big positive for them.

The Pharaohs begin with a clash against Uruguay and it’s plausible that Salah will be targeted by some tough tackling midfielders, with Saudi Arabia the final team in the reckoning.

The nation might be awash with money but it hasn’t been fed down to the development of quality players at international level and their ambition to go far in the tournament seems misplaced.
