The play in Group B of the World Cup betting group competition has been as exciting and compelling as any group in the tournament. Start with the dazzling display by group leader Argentina (6 points) and continue down the line with Greece’s unpredictable play as well as the solid displays by South Korea and Greece in the soccer betting competition and there is no lack of excitement here.
And with Argentina the only real, clear cut choice to advance at the moment there is still plenty of excitement left in this World Cup betting group. With just one game left for each team there is still much left to be decided and Tuesday’s Group B matchup between South Korea and Nigeria should be a wild affair.
South Korea currently sits second in the group with 3 points and a -1 goal differential (identical totals to Greece, but the Koreans won head to head 2-0 in a World Cup betting dismantling). This team needs a win to assure itself a place in the next round of the World Cup odds action.
South Korea is one of the best teams in Asia but a long shot to win the World Cup betting tournament with roughly 150/1 odds. It’s played well though through two games annihilating Greece in its World Cup wagering opener before suffering the same fate at the hands of the red hot Argentine squad.
Nigeria on the other hand has disappointed. Most World Cup odds experts expected a bit better showing from the African club playing on its home continent with very little travel and cultural disruptions involved. But the African teams have failed to live up to the World Cup betting hype and after playing valiantly in a 1-0 loss to Argentina the team fell apart at the seams losing to an ugly Greek squad 2-1.
The Nigerian squad has the talent and support to win this game but it’s hard to see this team vetting the soccer betting victory. The Nigerians simply having nothing to play for while the South Koreans know they can put themselves through to the World Cup betting knockout stage with a win.
The betting line is about even on this match but smart money puts the Koreans through.
