Holland, Germany, Spain, Uruguay; there is one name in that group of national soccer betting teams that doesn’t seem to belong and when Uruguay and Holland finally face off in the World Cup betting semifinals on Tuesday, the tiny South American country will be sent packing.
Uruguay has made a pleasant run all the way to the semifinals of this year’s World Cup odds competition but the journey will end when this squad runs up against the Clock Work Orange in the World Cup betting competition. Uruguay has been impressive and played well but it’s benefitted from the easiest draw in the World Cup betting knockout round and has yet to face a team of any substance.
The World Cup odds makers have already made this team a tremendously long shot in the soccer betting odds and Holland will likely run all over this team. Stranger things have happened and no game is easy at this level of World Cup betting (look at Spain’s 1-0 struggle against Paraguay in the World Cup betting quarterfinals) but it would take a perfect game by the Uruguayans and an off day for the Dutch to see the South American team get through to the World Cup final.
Uruguay has at least one world class player in forward Diego Forlan but he’ll likely be alone up front thanks to the suspension of fellow striker Luis Suarez for a handball against Ghana. Uruguay hasn’t allowed in many goals either, but again, this team has yet to face any real competition. Its biggest win of the tournament thus far has been against and average Ghanaian side.
Holland on the other is loaded with world class talent like Arjen Robben, Wesley Snjieder and Robin Van Persey. And this team has only gotten better as the World Cup betting competition has worn on. The Dutch attack will be too much for the Uruguayans and the final score could get ugly once Holland cracks the Uruguayan defense.
If you’re looking to predict the World Cup betting final you’d be crazy not to pencil in Holland to play for the 2010 World Cup trophy.
