The Cup Running Over

In the Latest British Betting Odds, England is Almost a Joint Favorite with Russia to Host World Cup 2018

The latest British betting odds make England almost a joint favorite now with Russia, with Spain trailing considerably. This may just be hometown sentiment kicking in, though there is a body of opinion that holds that Vladamir Putin's failure to attend the proceedings both will hurt the Russian bid and is an indication that the Russians are less than confident.

The British oddsmakers still make Qatar the favorite for 2022.
