Group B has produced all kinds of excitement so far in the 2010 World Cup betting action. If you start with the team at the top of the Group B standings at the moment (Argentina, 6 points), all the way down to the last place team (Nigeria, 0 points) there is plenty of talent from top to bottom. But it’s the two teams in the middle that have provided the most excitement so far.
South Korea and Greece squared off in the opening game of Group B play in the 2010 World Cup betting action. Greece played arguably the worst game in the World Cup odds history and South Korea looked very sharp as it strolled to a 2-0 thrashing of the Greeks. But the Greeks bounced back in their second game against Nigeria and now the both South Korea and Greece sit tied in the Group B standings with 3 points apiece.
In order to advance both of these teams need to in their next soccer betting matchup.
South Korea will have the much easier task as it plays last place Nigeria and Greece will have to face off against the mighty Argentine squad. If is safe to say that Greece will lose this World Cup betting matchup (it’s a 11/2 long shot in the soccer betting odds).
South Korea, strangely enough is also a slight underdog in the soccer betting odds against Nigeria (12/5). Nigeria is a talented squad but it’s yet to play well in the 2010 World Cup betting action losing 1-0 to Argentina and then surprisingly losing 2-0 to the Greek squad.
It’s due for win and it might just come against the South Koreans. However, the Koreans know how important this game is and even 1 point earned from a draw would put them through to the knockout stage of the World Cup odds action.
Look for Korea to come out strong and play for the draw. The Koreans will likely be a bit more defensive minded looking to score only in the counter attack and unlikely to take man risks in this game.
The smartest soccer betting play on this match is betting on a draw (58/25).
