Bookmakers reduced coefficient for Russia winning 2017 Confederations Cup

The first round of the group stage of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 has completed. After the matches, bookmakers reconsidered the chances of Russia for victory and slightly decreased the coefficient for this event.

The results of the first round of the Confederation Cup look as follows:

  • Russia - New Zealand - 2:0;
  • Portugal - Mexico - 2:2;
  • Chile - Cameroon - 2:0;
  • Germany - Australia - 3:2.

William Hill set a coefficient of 1.5 for the fact that Russia will leave Group A in the next round. The chances of the Portuguese national team were evaluated higher: the coefficient was 1.22. The third to leave the group was Mexico - 1.67. At the same time nobody believed in the victory of New Zealand, so the bookmakers set a 34.0 coefficient.

It is interesting to compare the coefficients for the victory of teams in Group A before and after the start of the tournament:

  • Russia: before - 4.2, after - 3.25;
  • Portugal: before - 1.67, after - 1.91;
  • Mexico: before - 3.75, after - 3.5;
  • New Zealand: up to - 81.0, after - 201.0.

According to bookmakers, the chances of the Russian national team to win became higher. If previously the coefficient for this event was 8.0, now it is 7.0. The coefficients for the victory of Chile, Portugal and Mexico were reduced as well.

Among the favorites of the 2017 Confederations Cup is the German national team. Although the coefficient for its victory has grown a bit: from 3.25 to 3.5.
