The 2014 World Cup that is scheduled to take place in Brazil is just around the corner. There will be 32 teams competing in 8 different groups.
Not surprisingly, hosts Brazil are going into the tournament as the clear favourites in the World Cup 2014 Betting Odds, followed by their South American rivals Argentina, 2010 World Cup champions Spain, and Germany also have short priced odds.
The host nation will no doubt have a lot of pressure placed on them to perform in the Brazil 2014 World Cup once it kicks off on June 12. They have been the short favourites with bookmakers since winning the 2013 Confederations Cup with a convincing 3-0 win against Spain.
If the hosts, which are a 3 to 1 favorites, do infact go on to be victorious, it would be their sixth World Cup title, and they would become the seventh country to win a World Cup trophy on home soil.
Brazil look forward to playing Croatia in their opening round, which won’t be an easy match. Their opponents are a talented and technical team, and on paper are probably better then Mexico, which is another team in their group.
But there is enormous talent in Brazil’s line-up including the likes of Neymar. The 22-year old Barcelona striker is priced at 14 to 1 to be the Top Goalscorer in the 2014 World Cup Betting Odds. He will be leading their attack, helping Brazil to make it through the group stages.
Every Brazilian will be hoping they go much further in the competition, and going by the short odds the bookies are offering on Brazil for this summer’s World Cup, the betting suggests that the host nation has a good chance of doing exactly that and going on to win it.
