Die Mannschaft appear to have every chance of becoming the first back-to-back champions for 56 years, judged on the Germany World Cup 2018 odds.
Germany lifted the trophy for the fourth time after Mario Gotze’s extra-time strike proved enough to see off Argentina in Rio.
They had earlier made hard work of getting past Algeria and France in the knockout rounds, but were simply devastating when crushing hosts Brazil 7-1 in the semis.
That was a deserved success for a side which had finished second in 2002 and third in 2006 and 2010.
Germany have also made the final four at three straight European Championships and prevailed at the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia with a largely youthful squad.
The stats demand utmost respect when making Germany World 2018 betting tips and predictions, with Die Mannschaft reaching eight finals and making 13 semi-final appearances at football’s biggest tournament.
Qualifying for Russia 2018 could not have been more impressive, with 43 goals scored in 10 straight wins, and this clinical machine seems sure to be there or thereabouts at the business end once more.

Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller heads the list of Brazil 2014 winners back for more glory, having scored five goals during that competition.
The 28-year-old netted the same number of times at South Africa 2010 and added three assists that time to bag the Golden Boot.
Club-mate Mats Hummels, Real Madrid ace Toni Kroos and Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil are other stalwarts eyeing a second winner’s medal.
There are concerns over the fitness of Manuel Neuer after a long lay-off with a broken foot, but Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen would be an able deputy.
Among the bright young things to emerge from the Confederations Cup were Bayern full-back Joshua Kimmich and Manchester City winger Leroy Sane.
RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is another who has taken his game to the next level over the past 12 months, while Low is there to mould all the pieces into place after 12 stellar years in charge.
