JustBet has listed Germany as the favourites to win their fourth FIFA World Cup title, ahead of the final game to be contested on Sunday in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Germany are listed at odds of $2.25 (or 5-4) to win the final in regulation time, while their opponents in the final, two-time winners Argentina, have been listed at odds of $2.80 (or 9-5) to win the Cup in regulation time. Odds of the match being tied after regulation time are $3.10 (or 21-10).

Germany are listed at odds of $1.65 (or 13-20) to win the World Cup title outright (whether in full time, extra time or on penalties), while Argentina are favoured at $1.90 (or 9-10) to win the title outright.

Germany thrashed hosts and pre-tournament betting favourites - Brazil - 7-1 in the semi-final round, while Argentina got past Holland on penalties in their semi-final encounter.

The final will be a rematch of the 1986 and 1990 World Cup Finals, in which Argentina faced West Germany. Argentina emerged victorious in 1986, while West Germany turned the tables in 1990.

JustBet has also released several other betting options on the World Cup Final, such as half-time match result, betting on the exact score in the match, first team to score, which players will score, when the first goal will be scored, which team will receive the first yellow or red card in the match, how many goals will be scored in the match and more.

"This has been a truly exhilarating World Cup experience and we expect a very competitive and exciting final on Sunday, July 13, to round it all off," said Andrei Roper, senior marketing officer for sports betting at Supreme Ventures. Roper added, "More than $100 million has been won by JustBet sports bettors since the World Cup began on June 12."
