It would difficult to find anyone in familiar with the World Cup betting action this year in South Africa who would claim that Spain hasn’t earned its place in the World Cup odds title game on Sunday. This is a team that has played the best of the best and come out victorious in its quest to claim the first World Cup betting title in Spain’s history.
No other team has had to play the quality of teams that Spain has had to play throughout the World Cup betting competition and based on opponents beaten, Spain should be the heavy favorite heading into the final game of the 2010 World Cup odds competition. Not to say that Holland hasn’t defeated quality soccer betting competition in its run to the 2010 World Cup betting final, the Dutch side hasn’t faced nearly as many tough opponents as the Spanish side.
Holland knocked off Brazil, which was a huge win against a quality opponent but the Brazil had a flawed side and lackluster offense that ultimately cost them a shot at yet another World Cup betting title. The other teams that Holland has faced in the knockout stage of the World Cup odds competition (South Korea, Slovakia and Uruguay) hardly rank among the soccer betting world’s best.
But Spain has played the best teams and knocked off the best teams in the World Cup betting and the beat down of Germany in the semifinals was simply the latest impressive win. Germany was the hottest team in the World Cup betting action and looked unstoppable after back to back 4 goal wins against powerhouse teams like England (4-1) and Argentina (4-0).
Against Spain’s solid defense the Germans looked pedestrian and at the end of 90 minutes found itself knocked out of the World Cup betting action. The win over Germany comes on top of impressive wins over Paraguay (a team that had conceded just one goal in 5 World Cup odds games) and Portugal (#3 in the FIFA world rankings).
Spain has proved it’s the best team in the world over and over again in this year’s World Cup betting and it’s little surprise that it’s favored to win the World Cup betting title for the first in the country’s history on Sunday.
