Will England reach the World Cup Final?
The answer ‘yes’ to this question pays +350, while ‘no’ pays -600. England last made the World Cup final in 1966 when they won the whole thing. In fact, that was the only time they ever made the Final.
Those of you who use a David Beckham picture as a dartboard will certainly say ‘no’ here. England may be one of the favorites, but European teams tend to struggle when out of their continent.
Will there be a new winner of the World Cup?
The answer ‘yes’ to this question pays +125, while ‘no’ pays -175. This is a very interesting prop. Spain is the favorite to win the tournament at 4/1, but they have never won it before. Their highest finish was fourth in 1950.
The next three favorites (Brazil 9/2, England 6/1, and Argentina 15/2) have all won at least once. Holland is fifth on the odds at 11/1 and they’ve never won before either. That means there are a couple of very good selections for the ‘yes’ here, which pays very well.
Will there be a red card shown in the World Cup Final?
The answer ‘yes’ to this question pays +225, while ‘no’ pays -350. This is a hot button question after Italy’s Marco Materazzi was able to draw a red card on France’s Zinedine Zidane in the 2006 Final after a head butt.
Zidane ended up getting ejected and Italy won in a shootout. That incident, and the very high profile attention it’s received over the last four years, makes a red card very unlikely to happen again.
