France go into Sunday’s World Cup final with Croatia as firm favourites to lift the trophy.
Bookmakers have France odds-on to win the match in 90-minutes and also to lift the trophy.
Despite their impressive win over England, Bookmakers make Croatia as long as 4/1 to win in Moscow.
Didier Deschamps is looking to become on the third person in history to win the World Cup as a player and a manager, following on from Brazil’s Mario Zagallo and Germany’s Franz Beckenbauer.
“As it stands Bookmakers are not taking on the French, this is one way traffic at the moment – they are 2/5 to lift the trophy and 19/20 to win the match in normal time,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.
“Deschamps is close to adding his name to history and Bookmakers are reporting almost all cash coming in is on France.
“However, Croatia backers do have some hope – remember two-years ago on home soil, when France were again odds-on to win the European Championships but they lost out to Portugual.
“And on the player front, Kylian Mbappe is predicted to carry on his good form and take France to glory, which will see him claim the Golden Ball for best player at the finals – he is odds-on for that prize.”

France to win World Cup 2/5
In 90 minutes 19/20
Croatia to win World Cup 2/1
