Betting Special: Back Germany at 4/1 or Argentina at 11/2 to win the World Cup

For all the pre-tournament talk about the World Cups that have been won by South American sides on the continent in the past, it is a European nation that are the favourites to lift the trophy in Sunday's final.

The country in question is Germany, with their 7-1 demolition of hosts Brazil convincing the bookmakers they are worthy of favouritism over an Argentina that have been functional as opposed to dominant in their campaign thus far.

The Irish bookmaker are offering anyone opening an account 4/1 (5.0) on Germany winning the World Cup, be it in normal time, extra time or via a penalty shootout.

On the other side of the equation are Argentina. They may have been the well-backed second favourites before the tournament kicked off, but they now find themselves as the underdogs in the winner market at around 7/5 (2.40).

Their penalty shootout win over Louis van Gaal's Netherlands side has seemingly done little to convince the layers that they should be more fancied to emerge victorious in the final.

Although that game means Argentina played an extra 30 minutes of football than Sunday's opposition and will have an day less to recover from their semi-final exploits, Paddy Power's enhanced price of 11/2 (6.50) on Alejandro Sabella's side winning the tournament is sure to catch the eye of those who believe the South American side can raise their game to at least match the Germans.

There is also a Money Back Special on offer for all existing Paddy Power customers which will interest .
