Soccer World Cup 2010Betting at the 2010 Soccer World Cup
At the 2006 Soccer World Cup FIFA introduced a betting ban for players. All players representing the thirty-two participating nations had to sign a statement agreeing that no family members would bet on the World Cup games. This was after a 26-year old referee, Robert Hoyzer, was found guilty of match-fixing, and received a prison sentence of 2 years and 5 months. We anticipate that no officials will be placing a football bet at the 2010 tournament. The Fifa World Cup 2010 is a huge event that attracts the interest of people from all over the world. World Cup betting is becoming increasingly popular and just about every bookmaker on the planet will be offering World Cup Odds on just about every possible outcome from who will win the tournament, golden boot winner as well as odds on every match from the group stages to the final. We are looking forward to a great tournament.Odds of being the outright winner of the Fifa World Cup 2010
Initial odds on 23 Feb 2010 were that Brazil and Spain were the joint favourites to win the World Cup - pretty tight odds given that there are so many countries involved. The host nation, South Africa, is available at 125/1 and New Zealand's odds of winning were set at a stellar 1000/1. By the 2nd April Spain were favourites to win ta 21/5.
Odds on France to beat Germany | World Cup 2014
Germany will face France shell-shocked and exhausted from their second round duel with Algeria. That went to extra time and that additional 30 minutes of exertion on Monday night in the Brazil heat will have taken its toll. The Algerians gave it their all and were unlucky in the end. The Germans had to work very, very hard to overcome their North African opponents and with only four days to recover, they might not have the zest and energy required to contain a France squad who are showing no signs of weakness. Technically, Germany are still top quality, but weary legs will let them down on Friday evening.
France cruised through their group with the highlight being a 5-2 demolition job on Switzerland, who only got beaten by Argentina due to a 118th minute goal. Les Bleus weren’t terrific in beating Nigeria in the round of 16, but they kept a clean sheet while scoring two goals. You get the feeling that there’s more to come from a France squad galvanised by Didier Deschamps. There’s strength in every department and depth on the bench. In Karim Benzema they have a Golden Boot contender (he’s had 13 shots on target in the tournament – more than anyone else) and in Paul Pogba they have a potential match winner with his flair and creativity.
The latest odds on France beating Germany are 23/10.

VERDICT: Arguably the toughest quarter final to call. What makes it a little easier is that Germany will be tired. They had to play an extra 30 minutes against Algeria and four days later they face the mighty France in the afternoon sun (1pm local time). Neither side will fancy that, Germany moreso. Germany will come out of the traps blazing, but France have the defenders to cope with anything thrown at them and will soon control the game. Perhaps a draw/France in the half-time/full-time market will prove profitable, with backing France to win in 90 minutes. The longer this game goes on, the more tired Germany will become and the stronger France will get. Bear in mind the historical head-to-head stats: France have beaten Germany 11 times, the Germans have been victorious eight times, and there have been six draws.
