The FIVB Women’s World Championship will take place from September 29 to October 20, 2018. While the men’s volleyball championship is hosted in Italy and Bulgaria, the women’s final will occur in Yokohama, Japan. This championship would be the 6th times that Japan acted as a host, according to Japanese online sportsbook news. Out of 24 national teams competing, we have the winning odds for 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship’s top countries in each continent!
We have to say that the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship betting odds for the host is nowhere near China (3.2). Although Japan (41) had been a gold medallist in the past, China is leading the AVC qualifiers for the continent of Asia.
“My team and I try to win every match. I hope the Chinese women’s volleyball team will always develop and become better,” said Captain Zhu Ting in an interview with FIVB. And they do! In the past 3 years, China won FIVB World Cup, Rio Olympics and FIVB World Grand Championship in a chronological order.
North and South Americas
Brazil has the unsurpassed team from South America, winning the CSV qualifiers. Even though Brazil (3.07) has never won gold, it doesn’t stop them from being the bookies’ favourite to win 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship!
On the other hand, USA is at the top of the North America and Pacific region in addition to being the defending champion from 2014. Online sportsbook directory in Japan predicts 3.98 winning odds for USA. We believe that when great US players scattered over the world finally gather for the upcoming championship, Team USA is a force to be reckoned with!
Africa and Europe
The CAVB qualifiers for Africa showed that Cameroon is the finest in this continent. Many volleyball fans are rooting for Cameroon (1000), but sadly, their 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship odds are not optimistic. When facing teams like China, Brazil and USA, Cameroon just couldn’t compare!
Moving up north to Europe, we find that Serbia is the rising star. According to internet gambling sites in Japan, Serbia’s odds to win 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship at 4.86 are among the safest. This is to be expected from the world’s number 3 volleyball team.
Bet on the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship
Brazil (3.07) and China (3.2) have close winning odds. Therefore, we can consider them both the bookies’ favourites to win 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship. So far, these two countries from South America and Asia are the most likely winner. In the midst of these strong teams, Cameroon (1000) from Africa would be your long shot bet.
