    Default World Cup betting

    SkyBet are offering money back - as a free bet, up to £10 - on any losing bets on the World Cup winner.

    Definitely have to give that a go - I've already had a bet on France, may hold my nose and have a tenner on Germany (love the country, admire the football team, but hate seeing them win)

    I've been building a fund on Spain for a while now. Think they've gone under the radar despite dispatching teams comfortably since the Euros. I think one of the top 4 in the betting win it.

    I also think topscorer will be won by a non-number 9, either a wide forward or number 10, similar to James Rodriguez who won in 2014. I've had a dart on Eriksen 100/1 and Isco 50/1. Figuring Eriksen takes everything for Denmark, who have 2 softer sides in their group, and Isco could top the scoring charts for Spain. If I could figure out who, I'd also pick one from Germany. Sané, perhaps?

    Always the potential for the drug scandal to finally catch up on them though.

    If you're going for a player from a team that won't go far but could score a lot in the group stage to make up for it I think Bayern Munich's Lewandowski at 33/1 is a decent shout. He scored 16 goals in qualifying (the most of any player) and Poland have Senegal, Colombia and Japan in their group so he doesn't have any extremely tough games where his scoring opportunities will be limited (although I suppose there could be the danger that they'll all try and park the bus). I can see him having 4 or 5 goals in the group if they play well, as far as I know Poland's tactic is to set him up at every opportunity.

    Lukaku top scorer - backed with William Hill as I'll get a free fiver every time he scores. Hoping for some textbook flat-track bullying from the big man.

    Who's this Rorschach guy and why is he so good at drawing pictures of my Dad beating me?

    Just had £20 on Brazil (free bet every time they win a game) and £10 on Greizmann to be top scorer (free bet every time he scores)

    A top team goalscorer Lucky 63:

    Sterling, Cavani, Gabriel Jesus, Son, Griezmann, Flores

    Hope rather than expectation.
