It has been a very long time since the USA has advanced to a World Cup betting semi-final, 80 years to be exact, but if this team continues to play well in the soccer betting competition and gets a few things to fall its way, this team may just find itself playing deep in the semis of the World Cup betting once again in 2010.
Coming off of its incredible 1-1 draw against a highly favored English squad the US team has reason to hold its head up high and needn’t take a backseat to any team in the World Cup betting competition. Obviously the American side is not the same planet as teams like Argentina, Spain or Brazil, but the way the World Cup draw is sizing up there is a very good chance that the US can make its way to the World Cup betting semi-finals and once there, as sports betting fans know, anything can happen.
The US desperately needs to win Group C if it hopes to advance to the semis. A second place finish in Group C likely means a soccer betting matchup up with Germany in the first match of the knockout stages and as anyone that saw Germany’s first game in the tournament that does not bode well for the Americans.
But if the US can win its group it will most likely face a team like Ghana or Serbia, a team that that the US can beat and team that the US would likely be favored to beat in the World Cup betting lines.
The next match for the American will be crucial in determining not only how they will finish in Group C but how they will compete in the rest of the World Cup betting action. Against England the US was a huge underdog and there was little pressure. Versus the Slovenians the US will be favored and it will be something of a new role for this squad with plenty of expectations and pressure.
However, because of the Slovenians weaker defense the US will also be able to open up the offense and this team by nature is at its best when its attacking. Expect the US to win by several goals and put the pressure on England in the race to win Group C of the World Cup betting pool.
