Costa Rica is a big longshot to win the 2018 World Cup at odds of +20000. Costa Rica was a huge surprise four years ago in Brazil, as they made the quarterfinals and nearly beat the Netherlands to make the semifinals. Costa Rica plays a high tempo style of football and they have some marquee players who can make a difference in goalkeeper Keylor Nevas, forward Bryan Ruiz and midfielder Celso Borges.

Costa Rica 2018 World Cup Odds: +20000

Costa Rica is not getting much respect in terms of 2018 World Cup odds, as they are listed at +20000. CONCACAF teams rarely get respect in the World Cup and that is the case with Costa Rica.

Costa Rica World Cup History

Costa Rica has made four previous appearances at the World Cup with their best finish being the quarterfinals four years ago in Brazil. Costa Rica has played 15 previous World Cup matches and scored 17 goals for an average of 1.1 goals per contest. Costa Rica made their World Cup debut in 1990 and shocked everyone by making the Round of 16.

Costa Rica 2018 World Cup Predictions

Costa Rica is almost always underestimated when it comes to the World Cup and that may be the case again in Russia in 2018. Costa Rica plays a wide open style of football and they have the goalkeeper in Navas to win playing that style. Costa Rica is definitely capable of getting out of the group stage again in 2018 but how far they go will likely be determined by the draw. Costa Rica still doesn’t have enough talent to beat teams like Germany, Spain and Brazil, but they can challenge teams like France or England. The odds are against Costa Rica doing as well as they did four years ago when they reached the quarterfinals, but the odds are almost always against Los Ticos in the World Cup and they continue to surprise.
