The World Cup may be over but already punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au are turning their eyes on the Socceroos next attempt at greatness.

ASIAN CUP OFFER: get a $250 FREE BET on the Asian Cup

With only 6 months to go until we host the 2015 AFC Asian Cup, Australia has firmed in the betting from $4.50 to $4.25 off the back of their encouraging performances in Brazil.

Holders Japan still maintain favouritism at $3.50 and have to date been the best backed team with just over 60% of the money wagered on the market.

Socceroos fans needn’t let that figure dishearten them though, as close to 38% of the remaining money has been placed on Ange Postecoglou’s men.

“It’s great to see punters not let the World Cup campaign dampen their belief in the Socceroos. We expect them to overtake Japan as the best backed team by kick off next January,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
