Group D is a very interesting group in terms of trying to pick the two teams that will advance and there is a very good chance that either Ghana or Australia –teams that will go head to head in the World Cup betting on Saturday- will be one of those teams.
Germany looks to be far and away the class of Group D and the 4-0 whipping they put on the Aussie side to open the World Cup odds action should at the very least put this team in good position in goal differential column (+4). And it’s probably safe to assume that Germany will be the top team in Group D to advance in the World Cup betting competition.
Be that as it may, one more team will also advance to the knockout stage of the World Cup odds action and if either team is able to grab three points in this game they’ll have a huge advantage in the race for the second slot.
While Australia suffered a humiliation in its first game Ghana looked convincing in a 1-0 win over Serbia. Ghana is one of the top teams in Africa and is roughly a 80/1 long shot to win the World Cup betting action, second only to the Ivory Coast among African teams. This team suffered a huge set back when it lost star mid-fielder Michael Essian but his replacement has been stellar and plays the same sort of anchor role in the middle that Essian does. As evidenced in the game vs. Serbia the team hasn’t lost much of a step in the 2010 World Cup odds action without the Chelsea star.
Many sports betting fans are also unaware of just how much talent this Ghana squad has with nearly every player on the team (15 out of 20) playing for a top club in Europe. That ratio far exceeds the Aussie side.
The World Cup odds makers have made Ghana a even money favorite (13/12) to win this game and even though a draw might look attractive (5/2 odds) Ghana is simply the better team and with the help of a large contingency of supporters in the stands, should win this game.
