Only once in 14 years has a World Cup or European Championship final not featured Spain, Germany or Holland, so all three will go into the majority of their qualifying games as favourites.
With such pedigree, it’s unlikely they’ll slip up on trips to Georgia, Austria and Hungary respectively this evening and they should all be backed at combined football betting odds just shy of 6/4.
If you’re happy to stick with the favourites, then new customers using the free £20 bet they receive when registering with bwin are virtually guaranteed £49.79 worth of winnings.
Spain to win in Georgia @ 13/100
What else can you say about the most all-conquering team in the history of world football?
Well, one thing I can say for sure is that La Furia Roja will win in Georgia. I’d bet my house on it and these short odds would at least ensure that the returning David Villa, Cesc Fabregas, David Silva, Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Fernando Torres and company could return me enough to add a shed!
Germany to win in Austria @ 11/25
One of the oldest rivalries in international football (Germany and Austria first met in 1908) has become ever more lopsided in recent years.
Austria haven’t beaten Die Mannschaft in a competitive game since 1978 and against the goal-laden forward line of Miroslav Klose, Thomas Muller and Lukas Podolski, Marcel Koller’s team are unlikely to end that streak.
Holland to win in Hungary @ 53/100
Despite their Euro 2012 implosion, Holland remain a very talented side with the likes of Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder able to walk into most nations’ starting line-ups.
So even with their recent improvements, Hungary will struggle to do much better than the 5-3 and 4-0 defeats they received at the hands of the Dutch in 2012 qualifying.
