2010 World Cup Odds has Spain as a Favorite to Win the Title


World Cup OddsThe selection of Spain has not played its first game at the newly opened 2010 World Cup odds, but to the bookmakers in Las Vegas is the favorite to win the title of champion. Spain is placed in the betting with 3.5 to 1 as the top contender for the title of new world champion, while Brazil placed second with 4-1.

The selection of Argentina, with its star midfielder Lionel Messi, appears far from the favorite in the gaming world to have a chance of 11-2. Although the sport of football (soccer) in the United States is still very popular, the arrival of 2010 World Cup betting has taken another major impetus for further growth throughout the country as well as the bookmakers in Las Vegas.

Several reports offered by companies that coordinate betting books that are set through all the casinos and hotels in Las Vegas, show that there is no type of confidence in what we can make the U.S. team itself, which give some opportunities to win 40-1. Despite the lack of confidence they have in the United States national team, who played his sixth consecutive world, we recognize that progress has been made and why it has fallen from 60-1 as it was to begin to open their books to bet.

Neither party as a favorite to get the win on his debut against the England team that exceeds possibilities 2-1 and 6-1 also give the team coached by Italian Fabio Capello in their struggle for winning the championship. Although the bets made during the World Cup betting do not exceed those recorded for normal college basketball game or the National Football League (NFL), the shops that specialize in Las Vegas have confirmed to have increased by 20 30 percent compared to 2006. Another positive factor for the global football gambling houses of Las Vegas is that more and more television channels offered in the United States daily transmission of the matches.

Betting On World Cup – Take Argentina To The Bank


World Cup BettingIf you’re betting on World Cup odds for the big tournament, you’ll see that there are at least nine teams with a chance of making it to the final in the Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg on July 11th. Here’s how it’ll all shake out in South Africa.

The Favorites

Spain (+400) and Brazil (+450) lead the way into 2010 World Cup betting, and if you’re going on history, Brazil wins easily: they’re the only team to participate in every World Cup, and their five wins in the most of any country. Spain won Euro 2008, but they’ve underachieved at the World Cup, as a fourth-place result in 1950 is their best. Both can trot out an impressive array of stars, but Spain gets the edge because of their midfield: can anyone else field a lineup of Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas, and Fabregas doesn’t even start most of the time? Also for Brazil, can Kaka carry the attacking load?

The Second Tier

Argentina (+600), England (+700) and the Netherlands round out the best in this group, and La Albiceleste has all the tools to win, including FIFA World Player of the Year Lionel Messi, who leads an impressive group of forwards. But all eyes will be on the bench, where manager Diego Maradona will try to spark his country from the sidelines as he did as captain of the 1986 Cup-winning side. England is powered by Wayne Rooney, and USA World Cup betting players will be keeping an eye on him when the Americans face England on Saturday. But like Argentina, the focus will be on manager Fabio Capello, who has brought a no-nonsense approach to the side. Finally, the Dutch are still looking for their first World Cup win, and they need to make their “total football” style count when the chips are down after years of disappointment for the Flying Dutchmen.

The Darkhorses

Germany (+1400) lost captain Michael Ballack, among others, but the squad known as The Team haven’t lost in the first round since 1938, and without Ballack, they still have the dynamic duo of Lukas Podolski and Bastian Schweinsteiger, so you can’t count the three-time champion Germans out. Portugal’s (+2600) World Cup contest against the Ivory Coast to open Group G (aka the “Group of Death”) could decide who goes onto the next round, and even though they had a disappointing qualification campaign, they still have Cristiano Ronaldo, who won the 2008 World Player of the Year award and finished behind Messi last year. Despite Nani’s injury, Portugal is going to be a factor in this tournament.

Online sports betting pick: Argentina (+600) over Portugal (+2600) in the World Cup finals in Johannesburg on July 11th.

NBA Betting – A Look At The Matchups


NBA Finals Odds2010 World Cup betting players have to look at all the matchups before making their picks, and the same goes in the NBA Finals, where Boston and Los Angeles will meet for Game 3 in Boston on Tuesday.

NBA Championship Betting – Tuesday, June 8, 9:00 PM ET


The Lakers’ frontcourt have had the edge in the first two games of the series, and Pau Gasol has put up 24.0 points and 11.0 boards, while Andrew Bynum had 21 points in Game 2 and played a playoff-high 39 minutes. The two combined for 13 of the Lakers’ NBA Finals-record 14 blocks, and Bynum’s knee looked fine on Sunday, but will it hold up over a tough series? Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins have dealt with foul problems over the first two games, while Paul Pierce has been locked in a fierce battle with Ron Artest, managing to shoot 33.3% from the field.


Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher romped over their Boston counterparts in Game 1, but Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo stormed back in Game 2, setting a Finals record with eight three-pointers and posting a triple-double, respectively. Allen dominated the first half, while Rondo took over in the second, and the Lakers looked like they had no idea who they wanted Bryant to guard, not to mention, Bryant was battling foul trouble and played just 34 minutes. Bryant and Fisher have too much championship experience to allow themselves to be outplayed like that, and even though Allen and Rondo were a big part of the 2008 title team in Boston, Bryant and Fisher have four rings apiece. Look for a much better game from them in Game 3.


However, Rasheed Wallace has badly outplayed Lamar Odom in a battle of the bench players, and that has helped offset the play of Garnett and Perkins. There will be at least one World Cup contest
decided by a sub, and Odom needs to be the super-sub that he has been all season. Nate Robinson has provided a spark off the bench in both games, while Jordan Farmar and Shannon Brown haven’t been that great for the Lakers, and the Celtics’ bench will play a major role if Boston wants to upset the Lakers in this series.


The Celtics are a 2.5-point favorite on Tuesday, and they’ve won seven of their nine games at home in the playoffs. The Lakers won 90-89 in Boston on January 31, but they’re going to have to keep either Allen or Rondo from going off like they did in Game 2. Odom is also going to have bring his “A” game off the pine because we don’t think Bynum will have another 39-minute game. We’re making the Lakers our online sports betting pick on Tuesday night, led by a strong game from their backcourt.
