Former World Cup betting champion Germany looked as though it had a free pass through the Group stage of play in the World’s biggest soccer betting tournament. In the run up to the World Cup odds competition it seemed as if Ghana was the only real threat to this team and at the very worst it would suffer a draw or two on its way to the knock stage of the World Cup betting action.
But that’s why they play the game. World Cup betting matches aren’t won or lost on paper or in the soccer betting lines, but on the pitch. And on the pitch, the Germans are a game within being knocked out the biggest soccer betting tournament in the world. After opening up with a 4-0 thrashing of Australian in its first World Cup betting match in South Africa, Germany looked like a world beater.
But a 0-1 loss to Serbia in its second match brought the team and its World Cup dreams crashing back to earth. Both Germany and Serbia currently sit with 3 points in the Group competition with one behind Group leader Ghana (4 points).
A German victory on Wednesday put them through to the knockout round of the World Cup betting action. A loss sends the team back home in disgrace like so many other European squads in the 2010 World Cup betting action. A draw would probably put the team through as well to the next round of soccer betting as they lead Serbia in goal differential (+3) but you can be sure that Germany will not be playing for the draw against Ghana.
Ghana has played with a great mix ball movement and discipline and has attacked for the much of the time but also shown great patience. This team is a legitimate contender and the African continent’s best hope winning the World Cup odds competition this year.
Still, there’s a reason why Germany has won the World Cup betting competition on three separate occasions and it knows how to handle itself in pressure-filled games.
Germany is the better team in this match up and is heavily favored (4/7) in the soccer betting odds. It would very hard to imagine Germany losing this game and this team should be through to the knockout stage with win over Ghana.
