Group E of the World Cup betting action might just be the most interesting. After two games the Netherlands sits atop the group with 6 points but Japan and Denmark, both quality squads, are both tied at 3 points apiece. And while Cameroon is out of the hunt with 0 points, it might just be the team best positioned to play spoiler and that’s what makes its upcoming match and this World Cup odds group so interesting.
However, more interesting than that Group E matchup is the game between Japan and Denmark with the winner booking a spot in the knockout round of the World Cup betting and the loser almost certainly headed home. (There is still a remote mathematical possibility that the loser could also make it out of Group E, but it would mean Cameroon upsetting the Netherlands in their upcoming World Cup betting matchup which is also unlikely.)
Japan and Denmark both a have a win and a loss after two World Cup betting matches. Both losses came at the hands of an exciting Dutch squad that looks set to wrap up Group E. And obviously both wins came against Cameroon. All four scores were similar and as the only real instrument by with to gauge these teams they seem to be on awfully similar ground heading into the final game of their Group E World Cup betting action.
The Japanese hold a slight advantage in goal differential. The Japanese are at +/- 0 , while the Danes are at -1 in the World Cup odds competition. However, the Danes have scored one more goal than the Japanese (2 to 1) for whatever that’s worth.
Both of these teams have a handful of skilled players and both are good enough to make it through to the knockout round of the World Cup betting competition. However, due to the Dutch dominance in Group E so far it’s likely that only one will make it through and that should add an extra intensity to this World Cup betting match.
The Dutch are slight favorites at 5/4, but look for the Japanese defense to play just a bit better and push that team through to the knockout stage of the World Cup odds action.
