Bets are open until July 28 on the best online betting sites in the United Kingdom. Still, the odds are obviously more favorable before the group stage begins and the number of the competition’s possible outcomes start to narrow down. So let us see which teams have the best European Water Polo Championship odds in 2018!
The odds offered for the bookies’ favorite are pretty favorable considering that Serbia has secured the first place at the last three European Championships. Their peak might have been in 2016, when they became the first team to hold titles in all five existing major tournaments, but they are still very convincing, having just grabbed the gold medal at the 2018 Mediterranean Games a few days ago.
What could demonstrate a team’s abilities better than defeating the favorites of the championship? Well, Croatia has recently beaten Serbia (although there was some controversy surrounding the refereeing). They also defeated Hungary in a game that was named “the water polo game of the century.” The champions of the 2017 World Championship in Budapest and the 2018 Europa Cup in Rijeka have great momentum making them force to be reckoned with.
Other bets on the 2018 European Water Polo Championship
While punters strongly favor the above-mentioned teams over other the rest of the contenders, it would be foolish to rule out an upset. The likes of Italy and Montenegro (both of them 8.00) or Hungary (9.00) are still popular with experts and fans alike.
