One of the darkhorses to win the 2018 World Cup is Portugal, as they are listed at odds of +2000. When you talk about Portugal, the first player that comes to mind is Cristiano Ronaldo, who is considered the best player in the world. Portugal is often thought of as a one man team but that is not the case, as they have an excellent midfield and a strong defense. Portugal proved just how good they can be when they won EURO 2016. It was the first major title in Portugal’s history.

Portugal 2018 World Cup Odds: +2000

Portugal may not be getting enough respect from oddsmakers, as they are listed at odds of +2000. Portugal will be placed in Pot 1 and that means they will avoid all of the other top teams in the world in the group stage. Rankings don’t always tell the whole story, but Portugal is ranked by FIFA as the third best team in the world behind only Germany and Brazil. Portugal definitely has enough talent to make a serious run at the 2018 World Cup and they could be worth taking in World Cup futures at odds of +2000.

Players to Watch

The main man for Portugal is Ronaldo who is considered the best player in the world. He is joined by solid defenders Pepe and Raphael Guerreiro along with midfielder Renato Sanches and goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

The Coach

Fernando Santos took over for Portugal in September of 2015. He began his coaching career in 1987 and has coached at Porto, Benfica and Sporting CP. He also did well with AEK, Panathinaikos and PAOK. He led Greece to the last eight at EURO 2012 and to the Round of 16 at the World Cup four years ago.

Portugal World Cup History

Portugal has made six previous World Cup appearances. They have played 26 matches and scored 43 goals for an average of 1.7 per contest. They made their first World Cup appearance in 1966 and finished in third place. They were knocked out in the group stage in 1986, 2002 and 2014 but they did make it out of the group stage in 2010 and in 2006 they made it to the semifinals.

Portugal 2018 World Cup Predictions

Portugal is definitely a team that has a lot of value in 2018 World Cup futures. Portugal is a real threat to win the 2018 World Cup, as they have the best goal scorer in the world in Ronaldo and a lot of young talent around him. Portugal proved two years ago at EURO 2016 just how good they can be. If Ronaldo plays at a high level then Portugal has a real chance to contend with teams like Germany, France and Spain for the 21016 World Cup title.
