It has been a very long time in the making but this looks it could finally be the year Spain gets it first World Cup betting title. After years of failing to live up to big expectations in the World Cup odds competition this year the much beleaguered Spanish side might just shed its title of ‘underachiever’ if it can just win three more soccer betting matchups in South Africa.
There have been plenty of great opportunities in the past for Spain to win a World Cup betting title and it’s surely had the talent. But bad luck and bad play on the pitch have conspired to saddle this team with the infamy of being the best team in soccer betting to have never won a World Cup betting title.
But there is reason to be hopeful this year and it looks as if the soccer gods might finally be smiling on Espana. In years past the Spanish sides seemed to crumble under the slightest bit of pressure. But this side is different. This is the same group of players that just two years ago won Spain its first ever international soccer betting title by grabbing the Euro Cup.
And it’s already proved to World Cup betting fans around the planet that it can handle the World Cup betting pressure are well. After dropping its first game in the World Cup odds competition it had to win out in the Group Stage of the soccer betting which it did with relative ease.
This team has been as impressive as any since its first and only loss in this tournament and is arguably the most talented squad from front to back in this World Cup betting tournament. Up front the likes of Fernando Torres and David Villa have been torching opposing defenses and Villa actually leads the tournament with 4 goals in 4 games. In the midfield this team is stout with Xabi Alonso, and defenders like Carlos Puyols and Co. keep opponents away from the goal on defense. But perhaps the most important player on this side is captain and GK Iker Casillas, arguably the best keeper in the world.
But talent aside the Spanish side has a favorable draw in the quarterfinals against Paraguay and that may just be the bit of luck this team needs to get through.
