Columbia

Columbia have been one of the surprise packages of the World Cup, scoring an impressive 10 goals in 4 games so far. James Rodriguez is the man who has filled the boots of Falcao with ease, scoring in every game so far, and leading the Golden Boot scorers table with a total of 5 goals. He can still be backed at best odds 3/1 with Coral to finish as top scorer.

Columbia face a difficult match against hosts Brazil in the Quarter final, but at best odds 7/2 with William Hill there will be plenty of support for Columbia. If you think Columbia can go all the way and win the World Cup, a host of bookies are offering 12/1 odds on Columbia. One such bookie is Betfred who will also give you a free £25 bet.

Columbia World Cup odds and betting

They will be buoyed by the fact that they are currently rated fourth in the FIFA World Rankings, 13 places higher than the closest group competitors Ivory Coast. Columbia’s most successful campaign on the biggest stage of all came when they reached the last sixteen in 1990, but perhaps their most famous moment in world football came during a friendly against England in 1995 when their keeper, Rene Higuita, prevented a goal by completing an incredible scorpion kick as the ball drifted over his head. Columbia have been drawn in Group C, along with Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan who will all provide testing fixtures for the South Americans. They do however gain an advantage as the competition is being held in Brazil meaning that the weather conditions shouldn’t affect the Columbians as much as any other team within their group, which explains why they are favourites to win the group and qualify for the next round.

Columbia betting tips

As favourites for winning their group Columbia’s odds aren’t that great, with them only being 5/6 to win Group C on SkyBet. They should qualify from their group and could go past their current record of the last 16, and depending on who they face in the quarter-finals that could be their exit. Columbia are 3/1 to be knocked out in the quarter finals on Bet Victor and Ladbrokes.
