The USA has never been favored to win its respective group in the World Cup betting competition and it won’t be favored in the World Cup odds to win Group C this year either. But any sports betting fan that’s seen the US play lately knows, this a squad that is very capable of pulling off a soccer betting upset or two and advancing into knock stage of the World Cup wagering in South Africa.
The US has assembled its most talented World Cup betting squad ever for the 2010 event and there is even whispers among the soccer betting masses that the squad has a chance of knocking of England (the soccer odds favorite to win Group C) and winning the group soccer wagering competition outright.
England is the heavy favorite in the World Cup odds to win Group C and with good reason. The squad boasts such top players as Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand, all players that shame the top US soccer betting talent. But the English squad has been entangled in recent scandals and their inspirational leader David Beckham will not be playing in the World Cup betting competition after blowing his knee out.
As such, the US squad’s chances of winning a group in the World Cup soccer betting are as good as they’ve ever been this summer. But even if the team fails to win Group C outright, there is still a very good chance that the US will still advance to the knock-out stage of the World Cup wagering by virtue of finishing in second place or higher in Group C play.
In order to ensure a spot in the second round of the World Cup soccer betting action the US needs wins over Algeria and Slovenia, two much inferior teams. Even a win and two draws in group play would all but guarantee a spot in the next stage of the soccer wagering action. Anyway you look at it, the soccer betting odds would seem to indicate that the US will be advancing past the group stage in the 2010 World Cup betting action.
