Cameroon and Denmark are about as opposite two countries can get yet they both share one overwhelming trait in common: both national teams lost their opening game of the World Cup betting action and now are in a desperate need of points in the Group E competition. Neither team is out of the hunt yet and there’s still a chance that one of them will advance to the knockout stage of the World Cup odds action, but if neither team is able to secure 3 points in this match, more than likely both team’s 2010 World Cup betting dreams will end prematurely.
The Netherlands is the class of Group E and one of the top three or four teams in the entire 2010 World Cup odds competition. It’s practically a certainty that the Clock Work Orange will win this Group and advance in the World Cup betting action. As to the other team that will advance from Group E, Japan has a definite advantage since its already grabbed 3 points in its opening win over Cameroon, but it’s far from certain.
Both of these teams entered the World Cup betting action virtually deadlocked with roughly 250/1 odds of winning the tournament. And judging by both of their opening game losses these two teams are about as even a matchup as you’ll see in the World Cup odds.
The World cup odds makers have listed Denmark as the slight favorite at 13/8 odds. But that’s just slightly better than Cameroon’s odds at 17/8. A draw pays 12/5 and that might just be the smartest bet on the board.
Cameroon is led by all-world striker Samuel Eto’o one of the top strikers in soccer betting and the team’s all time leading scorer. He’ll be the best player on the pitch by far and that along with the fact that stands will be packed with Cameroon supporters should offer a big boost to the African squad.
The only knock on Eto-o is that he needs proper service and if Denmark can keep his teammates from getting him the ball in good position they can neutralize his effectiveness. Still, with a possible chance to advance on in the World Cup betting competition on the line, look for Cameroon to win this game.
