World Cup Semi Finals – Preview and Betting Picks
Posted on July 5, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
The World Cup 2010 final is just a step away and four teams will battle for the golden ticket. On Tuesday, July 6th at 19:30 Uruguay will play Holland while at Wednesday Germany will face Spain. Very few people were expecting Uruguay to reach the semi finals but the team from South America had the stars on their side as they progress from the quarter finals on a penalty shoot out against Ghana. On the other hand, Netherlands managed to prevail quite easily over Brazil by 2-1 score and they got the ticket for the semi finals. The match between Uruguay and Netherlands features a favorite and this is no other than Netherlands but this only on papers. Uruguay is playing an attractive attacking football with balanced lines where Forlan distributes the game to Suazo and Caveni. Netherlands is playing similar football as Uruguay but they do not have a clear scorer in the team but are counting on the magic triple power of Kuyt, Robben and Sneijder.
The online sports betting sites offer Uruguay’s win at 11/2(6.50), the draw at 12/5(3.40) while Netherland’s win low at 8/13(1.61). However, Netherland is way over estimated to this bet. Uruguay is a good team and the fact that they survived from Ghana can only boost the confidence of the team. After all, they are just a step away from the World Cup final. On the other hand, Netherlands managed to prevail over Brazil on two static occasions and used the extra player (as Melo from Brazil was shown a red card) superbly, missing a lot of chances to increase further the score margin.
However, in this World Cup the teams marked as favorites have extremely difficulties to win easily (see Spain against Paraguay) while on the games without any favorite we watched a total one side domination (Germany against Argentina). WilliamHill.com offers Uruguay to qualify at 11/2(3.40) while the same bet odds for Netherlands are low to 8/13(1.30). We believe that Uruguay has the power to advance to the next round despite the fact that is coming to this game as underdogs.
Germany and Spain will battle for the second World Cup final ticket at Wednesday July 7th at 19:30. Germany scored 4 goals in three different occasions (against Australia in Groups Stage, against England on the first knockout stage and against Argentina on quarter finals) as the team looks more complete and ready than ever. Spain, on the other hand, struggled to prevail over Paraguay in the quarter finals stage as they advanced due to a late goal from Villa 7 minutes before the end of the game. The number one pick of the bookmakers to lift the world cup trophy – before the beginning of the tournament – never justified the nickname of the “super team”. I believe that Germany can win this one before the end of the game as Muller, Klose and Ozil were proved lethal so far.
The online sports betting sites offer Germany’s win at 19/10(2.90), the draw at 21/10(3.10) while Spain’s win at 6/4(2.50). As you can see there is not a clear favorite for this one, but this was the case for Germany to the games against England and Argentina. Furthermore, the bet odds regarding the team which qualify as almost even where Germany is offered at 10/11(1.91) while Spain at 4/5(1.80). Our money for this game will go in Germany’s favor where as a prime betting pick we will choose Germany to qualify while all those who would like higher odds they can bet on Germany’s straight win.
