1. Portugal To Win @ 7/2 - BET NOW
Fresh off from their Eurovision and Euro 2016 wins, Portugal look the team to beat in this competition if you ask me. They have named a strong squad, which includes the Ballon d’Or winning Cristiano Ronaldo and they have the easier group stage to get through as theirs includes Russia, Mexico and New Zealand – avoiding both Chile and Germany.
Germany have named a somewhat youthful and inexperienced squad and whilst favourites, I don’t see them as certainties here.
2. Portugal To Win Group A @ 10/11 - BET NOW
As I am backing them to win the tournament it only seems right to back them in the Confederations Cup betting market for Group A. The price of 10/11 is not a bad price at all considering their most difficult test will be against the hosts, Russia.
They were actually very disappointing in their group stage in Euro 2016, finishing third with three draws but managed to scrape through and then go on to lift the trophy. Since their success last summer they have won five in seven and scored 26 goals in that sequence of games!
3. Chile To Win Group B @ 31/20 - BET NOW
I have pointed out that this Germany side is lacking in a huge way in terms of experience (only six members of the squad have double figures in appearances) and for that reason I am backing the second favourites in the Group B Confederations Cup betting market, Chile, to win the group.
Whilst Chile struggle away from home in qualifying and in friendlies, they have proved that they can perform to a high standards in neutral based tournament football and with a strong squad heading to Russia, I fancy them to cause a scene and win group B ahead of Germany!
