This cup, I can't tell. Brazil is my slight favorite pick due to form in an extremely tough qualifying confederation. Most talented though - France by far - but entirely inconsistent. Surprise comeback team - Spain, really impressive. More than enough talent to win - Belgium - but even more inconsistent than France. Extremely talented - Germany. In with a shout - Argentina, and less so Uruguay. ============= All that said, my picks to win the WC, in order of likelihood are: Brazil - slight favorites Germany Spain - very close to Germany France - would win on paper but too inconsistent to be favorites Argentina - Messi can carry this team Belgium - chronic under-performers ============== Well, that's my thinking. Who are your top picks for winning the WC?
