It’s been nearly three years since Germany hoisted the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and with qualification starting to ramp up for next year’s tournament in Russia, oddsmakers are beginning to pump out lines and the defending champions are the favorites at most books.

One of those books, William Hill has the German and Brazilian teams tabbed as co-faves at +700 with main stays like France and Argentina coming back at +900. The fading Spaniards and up-an-coming Belgians are both pegged at +1400 with the Italians right behind them at +2000 while England and Colombia round out the odds for the heavyweights at +2500.

There are far too many nations still in the qualification hunt to do a full breakdown of every team I think has a chance but a bet that I’d reluctantly suggest is Portugal at a price of +3300. Cristiano Ronaldo and crew are coming off a win at the 2016 UEFA European Championship, beating teams like Poland, Switzerland and France in the elimination portion of the bracket.

Portugal plays an extremely unattractive, slow style of football and if they make a run in the 2018 World Cup, the North American hate for soccer will only increase. I’m cheering vehemently against this team and every thing they stand for. Wales should have won that tournament and you all know it.

Some other interesting teams that land a little farther down the list are Uruguay at +3300, the Netherlands at +3300, the Czech Republic at +15000 and the Welsh team I just spoke of at the same +15000 price.

Gareth Bale led Wales all the way to the semifinals of last year’s Euro Cup after an impressive group stage and a 3-1 quarterfinal win over Belgium in one of the country’s most impressive victories to date. Don’t get me wrong, the Welsh are still minnows on the world stage and they’re still light years from qualifying for Russia. This is the definition of a long-shot bet but as Gareth has proved over the course of his career, long shots are one of his specialties.

Here’s the complete list of countries still in the hunt for qualification and their odds to win the 2018 World Cup in Russia:
