The World Cup enters into the last 8 on Saturday morning and despite our Socceroos dream ending early, Australian punters are still very much alive and kicking!

Online bookmaker previews each of the remaining matches at the quarter finals:

France v Germany: Join Here.

This match is the closest in betting terms but Germany has attracted twice the wagers as the French. Germany are priced at $2.50 to win in 90 mins and $1.67 to qualify. France are offered at $3.10 for 90 mins and $2.11 to qualify.

Brazil v Colombia

This clash guarantees at least one South American team in the Semi Finals and punters have supported Colombia at $4.50, receiving more money than both Brazil and the draw option combined. Brazil are favourites at $1.85 to win in 90 mins and overall $1.37 to qualify.

Argentina v Belgium

Punters in the past 24 hours have come out in strong support of the Argentinians. They’ve now received nearly three times the amount of money wagered at $2.10 than Belgium at $3.75. Both teams drew their matches in the last round, the draw here is paying $3.40.

Netherlands v Costa Rica

Everyone’s favourite dark horse Costa Rica are large outsiders at $7.50 to win the match with the Dutch attracting over 71% of the money wagered to be the shortest priced team to progress from the quarter finals at $1.50. A Costa Rican miracle with them qualifying is paying $5.40 to the Netherlands skinny $1.13.

“We’re really at the business end now of the World Cup with only the Dutch looking near certs to progress. The continental derbies should be absolute cracking matches and the Argentina/Belgium tie could go either way,” said’s Will Byrne.

The World Cup winner still looks an open race with Brazil on $3.75 ahead of Argentina ($5.00), Germany ($5.50), Netherlands ($6.00) and France ($9.00).

Neymar has been the best backed winner of the golden boot at $4.50 but Messi remains the $3.60 favourite. James Rodriguez is priced at $4.00 despite being the tournament’s top goalscorer so far – he’s received less backing than anyone else in the top 7 of the betting.
