Even though the Brazil is without a doubt the better of these two teams and should go on to win this World Cup betting match, fans of the Beautiful Game should be treated to a free-flowing offense display by both sides as two of the most graceful teams in the 2010 World Cup odds competition go head to head in Group G.
On Sunday June 21st the Brazilian national team will go head to head with the ‘Brazil’ of Africa when the side takes on the Ivory Coast in the second game or both teams in the 2010 World Cup betting action.
In its first game of the World Cup betting competition Brazil was frustrated by very ugly looking North Korean squad. The Koreans stuffed the box and refused to play offense as they held the 5-time World Cup betting champ scoreless in the first half. However, Brazil was patient, moved the ball beautifully, and was rewarded with a 2-1 win.
Brazil is the #1 ranked team in the world according to FIFA and is now the favorite to win the 2010 World Cup betting competition now that Spain embarrassed itself in its opening game loss to Switzerland. It passes the ball as well as any team in the World Cup odds and has best all around defense of any team in South Africa right now. Its one weakness is scoring by forward players, but it’s still quite capable of putting the ball in the net as evidenced by Maicon’s incredible goal vs. North Korea.
Ivory Coast is no slouch either and is not only best team in Africa but is one of the better teams in the entire World Cup competition. For World Cup betting fans unfamiliar with the Ivory Coast squad, they got a taste of this team’s talent in its opening 1-1 draw with world #3 Portugal. Superstar striker Didier Drogba didn’t play in that World Cup odds contest but he’s expected to see some action vs. Brazil after breaking his arm two weeks ago.
The World Cup odds do not favor Ivory Coast which is a 5/1 long shot to beat Brazil. Judging by these two team’s similar strengths this game will likely turn into a track meet and that is not the kind of game that the Ivory Coast can win against a powerhouse like Brazil.
