The Socceroos may be massive $501 outsiders to win the World Cup, but punters think we will at least have some success over the coming weeks, launching into Australia to win their friendly against South Africa on Monday night.


Online bookmaker report that 95% of all money bet on the match has been on the Socceroos, who are clear $1.50 favourites.

South Africa, who haven’t qualified for the World Cup, are $6.50 outsiders, with the draw priced at $4.00.

“Unfortunately the odds tell us that this may be the only game the Socceroos win over the next month or so!”’s Shaun Anderson.

Despite their favouritism in this match, they remain $7.00 outsiders to win their first game at the World Cup against Chile ($1.50).
