Combined Poland’s superb performance with this extra advantage, online gambling sites in Poland estimate the best odds at 2.375 for Poland to win 2018 Speedway of Nations.
We also have to mention the most recent talents being Sweden (9) and Russia (3.92). After Poland, they finished second and third place in the 2017 Speedway World Cup respectively. However, the racing format has changed. So could these leading countries manage to win Speedway of Nations?
