Germany has been a pleasant surprise for many World Cup betting fans. This is a young team that had a pretty unremarkable qualifying round in the run up to the World Cup odds competition in South Africa. It doesn’t boast any big name as World Cup betting tournaments in the past like Ballack or Kahn. In fact, it’s a pretty low key team that seems to fly under radar, at least until it steps onto the soccer pitch.
The German side tore through the World Cup betting group stage, dropping a game to a surprisingly good Serbian side, but grabbing 6 points and eventually winning the group. And no soccer betting fan will forget the clinic this team put on against the highly favored English side in the World Cup betting round of 16.
Through 4 games in this year’s World Cup betting the thing that has stood out most is this team’s offensive prowess. It’s scored 9 goals, including two 4 goal outburst and allowed just 2 goals for an impressive differential of +7.
But in order to win against a team of Argentina’s caliber it’s the defense that must shine, or at the very least the mid-field must be able to hold a bit. And that shouldn’t be all that difficult for Germany. Against a very strong attacking English mid-field of Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard the Germans all but shut them out although Lampard did unleash a few nice shots from distance.
The Argentine attack will be much different in the World Cup betting quarterfinal matchup and much trickier to defend. It’s loaded with speed (Messi, Tevez, and Higuian) and there isn’t a defense that keeps up with this trio man for man. But if Germany can simply keep them from getting easy looks at the goal and two much space on their half of the field, it will have plenty of chances to get shots on the Argentine goal in the counterattack.
Germany has been an excellent finishing team so far in the World Cup betting action and it must finish well again if wants to advance in the World Cup odds action.
