Football Betting Tips

by Ben, last updated 2010-06-03 23:28:21

Who would have thought that England would come into the World Cup as third favourite joint with Argentina. With Spain favourite and Brazil's second favourite, I would personally not have England up there. I guess the bookies are limiting their liabilities in case England do win. English punters will back England at any price so donít be fooled by the odds.

Argentina have the players to be favourites but their coach leaves something to be desired. Maradona may have been one of the greatest players ever but as a coach, lets just say he's no Jose Mourinho. Holland also have good shout to be ahead of England too. They topped their qualifying group by winning all 8 and only conceding 2 goals. 11/1 at Ladbrokes for Holland to win looks like a decent enough bet if you fancy something a little less obvious.

 World Cup football betting.

 Group C Preview and Tips.

England are hot favourites to win this group. 1.36 at Skybet is all you are going to get for England to win the group. This is the last time the so called 'golden generation' of players will play in a world cup. Beckham not in the squad this time and it will surely be the last world cup for the likes of Ferdinand, Terry, Lampard and Gerrard. This is probably their best chance in a generation to win the Cup.

The arrival of Fabio Capello injected some new life in to the England side that failed to qualify for Euro 2008. Qualification was a lot simpler this time round. Having won all their first 8 games, their only defeat came in the Ukraine when qualification was already in the bag.

The thing that worries me about this England side is the over reliance on Rooney as the main goal scorer. Crouch, Defoe and Heskey, while decent players don't strike fear in the hearts of opponents. Rooney is good at running around but at times I see him lacking, despite being runner up in the Premiership Golden Boot. I hope for England's sake, he stays fit and hits top form. Leaving Walcott out may be something that Capello regrets too.

USA
The USA are second favourites in this group and therefore pose the greatest threat to England winning the group. Much will depend on the opening game which is against England on the 12th June.

Soccer has never taken off in the USA as it has in most of the rest of the world. Despite this, the USA usually qualify for the World Cup finals. Last time it was a little embarrassing as they didn't win a single game. Since then though, they have knocked Spain out of the Confederations Cup and were narrowly beat 3-2 in the final against Brazil (the USA were 2-0 up at half time).

Slovenia
Slovenia are potential dark horse in this group. Their appearance is actually amazing. Put in a qualifying group with Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia, no one really expected them to have a chance. They only narrowly missed out on winning the group in the end. They knocked out Gus Hiddink's Russia in the play offs which was no easy feat either.

They qualified by having one of the meanest defences. They only let in 4 goals altogether in the group stages. This could cause problems for England. We saw them narrowly beat Japan with 2 own goals. If Slovenia shut up shop, then the game might not be as straight forward as the odds suggest.

Algeria
Algeria are outsiders. Since beating, Egypt to secure a place in the final, their form has been lacklustre. In the African Cup of Nations they started off badly but recovered reach the quarter finals and beat Ivory Coast. They were beat 4-0 by Egypt in the semi final. They have played 2 friendlies in the World Cup warm up, losing both 3-0 to Serbia and the Republic of Ireland.

Algeria had a couple of players playing at Portsmouth last season. I was impressed with Belhadj when he came on for Portsmouth in the FA Cup against Chelsea. One man doesn't make a team though and I'd struggle to identify any of the other players.

The odds on England topping the group are too short for my liking. They should do but the 1.36 at Skybet doesn't appeal. I actually prefer the forecast bet at PaddyPower for 1st and 2nd in any order. England/ USA is 1.91. England should win the group but if they don't it'll be the USA that will.
