The English are mad, as they should be after a lackluster performance in their opening game of the World Cup betting versus the Yanks. England qualified for the World Cup odds action with plenty of easy destroying its qualifying group competition. It also climbed the FIFA world rankings and before defender Rio Ferdinand trailed only Spain (4:1) and Brazil (5:1) in the soccer betting odds. Its roster is loaded with EPL stars and world class talent like Stevie Gerard, Frank Lampard and arguably the best striker in the world, Wayne Rooney.
Yet against an inferior US Squad the best the English could muster was a 1-1 draw. Worse, the US’ only goal came on a terrible gaff by the English keeper who allowed the ball to slip through his hands on a routine save and watched as it dribbled into the goal.
But England should bounce back from the relative World Cup betting embarrassment and salvage 3 points from against Algeria. Algeria looked pretty weak during its first game, a 1-0 loss to Slovenia. Granted Algeria played most of the soccer betting match down a man after its star striker was shown a red card in the first half, but it was obvious that this team wasn’t of the same class as Ye Olde’ Englande.
Look for the English to score early and often in this sports betting contest. Look for Wayne Rooney to find much more space against a mediocre Algerian defense and be able to break free of his defenders much more easily than he did against the US.
England knows how important these three points are and it won’t let them get away. In the event that they draw (or worse) the team’s hopes of reaching the knockout stage of the World Cup odds competition will be all but snuffed out. They’ll find themselves in a four way battle just to advance from the group stage and this team is simply too talented to find itself left out of the Final 16 of the World Cup betting.
The payout isn’t much, but the only way to bet this World Cup betting match is on England to win it (1/4).
