England is relative outsiders at $7.00 to win the World Cup, but punters are getting behind the Three Lions.
Online bookmaker sportsbet has England as the $1.51 favourite to qualify from their upcoming clash with Colombia ($2.45).
The bulk of support is for the Three Lions and Colombia is receiving little love from punters.
Brazil ($4.00) are firm at the top of betting to win their sixth World Cup ahead of France ($5.00) and Belgium ($6.00), the second best supported team, after Brazil.
“Aussies love to beat England at anything. However, judging by the support they’re getting, plenty of punters are not just cheering for an England win against Colombia, they’re backing them to win the whole thing,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
