South Africa 2010 – World Cup Odds – Betting Tips
Posted on June 5, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
These days all the online sports books offer bets related to the World Cup. Here at Lucky Room we list the top 7 bets that top bookmakers offer.
Tournament Winner: Who will win the World Cup this year?
This is a very interesting bet and a very profitable one for two reasons. First of all, there are not more than 4-5 teams that can reach and win the final and secondly many sports betting sites like William Hill, 888sports.com and bodog.com offer the on the same bet the Each Way bet which means that if your picked team reach the final but does not win the cup then you still get paid halved the odds. Spain is the top pick (5.00), followed by Brazil (5.50) and Argentina (7.50). England, Holland, Germany and Italy are also high contenders.
Name The Finalists: Who will be the two teams to reach the final.
A difficult to predict bet as final Group Stage standings will play an important role – that is why the odds are extremely high. Given the strength of the teams and the potential crossings we have concluded to the following semi-final pairs: England Vs Brazil and Argentina Vs Spain.
That crossing can produce 4 different pairs for the final: Brazil – Spain (bookmakers’ favorite by 10.00), Spain – England (13.00), Brazil – Argentina (15.00) and England – Argentina (21.00).
To reach the final: Name the team that can reach the final no matter the result.
This is a similar bet as the first one but odds are different. Spain is the top pick by 3.00 followed by Brazil (3.25), England (4.00) and Argentina (4.50). Holland is next by 6.00, Germany follows by 7.00 then is Italy by 7.50 and France by 8.50.
Top GoalScorer: Which player will score the most goals (own goals do not count!)
On this bet it is very important to check which team has the – theoretically always – weakest opponent in their group. Spain on Group H seems to have an easy task (Switzerland, Honduras and Chile are the other teams) as well as Italy on Group F (Paraguay, New Zealand and Slovakia). England attackers also have a good chance as on Group C are together with USA, Algeria and Slovenia.
The online sports betting rooms offer as top choice David Villa (Spain) by 9.00, Wayne Rooney (England) by 11.00, Lionel Messi (Argentina) with 11.00, Fernando Torres (Spain) by 13.00, Luis Fabiano (Brazil) by 13.00, Robin van Persie (Holland) 13.00.
Winning Continent: In which continent the World Cup winner belongs to?
Europe is the top pick offered by 1.44, followed by South America by 3.00, Africa by 12.00, North America by 34.00 Asia by 101.00 and Oceania by 101.00. The common logic says that only the two first picks have some value as those two continents feature the most strong teams on the tournament.
Which Team will reach the Semi-finals?
Brazil is offered on 2.05, Spain at 2.10, England at 2.25, Argentina at 2.50, Germany at 3.10, Holland at 3.25, Italy at 3.50, France at 4.20, Portugal at 7.00 and Ivory Coat at 8.00. Our analysis indicates that we might watch the following quarter final pairs: Brazil – Netherlands, France – England, Argentina – Germany and Italy – Spain. Having that in mind, Brazil should be our top choice, followed by England, Argentina and Spain.
Top Team by Continent / Region bet.
From Africa we have the following teams and odds: Ivory Coast (2.50), Ghana (4.50), Nigeria (5.25), Cameroon (5.50), South Africa (8.00) and Algeria (13.00).

From Europe we have: Spain (3.00), England (4.00), Holland (7.50), Italy (9.00), Germany (9.00), France (11.00), Portugal (17.00), Serbia (34.00), Denmark (51.00), Greece (67.00), Slovakia (101.00), Switzerland (101.00) and Slovenia (101.00),
From South America region we have: brazil (1.73), Argentina (2.62), Chile (13.00), Paraguay (15.00) and Uruguay (26.00).
