2010 World Cup: Group B Betting


As we began yesterday, we continue our group-by-group 2010 World Cup betting analysis. Applying our knowledge of the alphabet, we now move to Group B. Let's take a look at the odds to win the group:

Argentina... -200
Nigeria... +450
Greece... +600
South Korea... +1000


Once again, we have to go with the favorite to win this group. Argentina has been a popular favorite pick for years, but they haven't come through since the 80's. We think things will be different for the Argentines this year, and it starts with a complete domination of an inferior Group B. Might as well just HAND it to the Argentines.


As for the runner-up, it's a toss-up. We're going to side with Nigeria, but won't be totally shocked to see Greece or even South Korea pull through to soccer's Sweet 16. So, in order, our Group B Standings look just like the odds:

1. Argentina
2. Nigeria
3. Greece
4. South Korea.

Good news for you alphabet fans out there, we will continue right on down to Group C in our next installment of 2010 World Cup betting analysis.

Stay tuned!
