Every year in the World Cup betting there are small handful of teams at the top of the betting odds food chain that seem to have a look of invincibility. And without fail, every single World Cup odds competition it seems as if Brazil is included in that small, select group. Once again in the 2010 World Cup betting action in South Africa 6-time champion Brazil is at the top of the heap in terms of teams favored to life the Balon d’Oro and barring any unexpected or unforeseen developments there is little reason to believe that the Brazilians won’t be World Cup champs in 2010.
The upcoming match with the Netherlands in the World Cup betting quarterfinals won’t be an easy one but the Brazilians are big favorites (21/20) and on paper they are the much better team.
But what’s so amazing is that year in and year out, almost without fail Brazil seems to pluck players out of nowhere, plug them in and win. There are few –if any dynasties- in sports betting quite like this. Brazil may simply be the most dominant team in all of sports betting and certainly in the World Cup betting.
This year’s squad is also a bit unusual in the fact that it doesn’t really have a start-studded roster. Kaka, or course is one of the best players in the world but he had a disappointing club season in Real Madrid and was for better or worse overshadowed by teammate Christiano Ronaldo. And aside from Kaka, only the most diehard soccer betting fans would be able to name more than one or two players on the roster.
But that lack of superstar on the roster has actually made this a better team in many ways. This team is playing together as a team better than any Brazilian squad in recent memory.
Dunga has done a masterful job crafting this squad and bringing them together even after taking much heat in the media for not inviting bigger names to the World Cup betting competition. In hindsight it would be very difficult to argue with his final roster and if this Brazil squad can win 3 more games in South Africa, any earlier criticisms will evaporate.
