World Cup outright betting tips – Chile too big at 20/1

It pays to back outsiders considering the teams have been so evenly-matched

Chile are through to the last sixteen of the World Cup and will fear nobody in the knockout stages

At the time of writing, Chile are about to meet the Netherlands in a Group B decider. The winner will most likely avoid Brazil and face Mexico or Croatia at the last sixteen stage before a potential quarter final against Costa Rica or Ivory Coast.

The loser will instead face the hosts although, either way, the passage to the latter stages of the competition are unlikely to faze a Chilean side who put world champions Spain to the sword in clinical fashion.

While the Netherlands were slightly fortunate to avoid going 2-0 against the Spanish before producing a thrilling comeback, Chile were simply outstanding from one to eleven, with a last sixteen match-up against the Brazilians simply giving them a chance to oust one of the tournament favourites.

Sky Bet offer 20/1 about the South American side, with Brazil way too short at 7/2 after a couple of underwhelming performances against Croatia and Mexico, the latter of which saw them draw 0-0 with El Tri.

Germany are also a touch on the short side after drawing 2-2 with Ghana and they are on a collision course to meet a France team in the last eight of the competition, with Les Bleus wiping the floor with Honduras and Switzerland thus far.

Argentina have been equally unimpressive and found it hard going against both Bosnia and Iran, while the Dutch might have been flattered by that 5-1 win against Spain when you consider that they laboured to a victory over Australia by a 3-2 scoreline.

It pays to back outsiders considering the teams have been so evenly-matched and you could do worse than back Croatia at 100/1 considering the way in which they dealt with a Cameroon side, thrashing them 4-0 although they need another big performance to knock out the Mexicans.

The USA could also be a spot of each-way value when you consider they are 100/1 and Jurgen Klinsmann’s side have four points on the board and were a whisker away from beating Portugal on Sunday night.
