Bet on World Cup at BwinPublished June 8, 2010
Favorites Spain, Brazil and England feature in our odds preview.
Singapore won't be appearing in the World Cup, which starts June 11, but that shouldn't stop locals from putting money on their favorite team.
Spain, Brazil and England all have strong local support, and are the three teams that look the toughest to beat in South Africa if the odds are any indication.
In fact, a Brazil-Spain final is considered the most likely scenario, at 12.00, while a Spain-England final is paying 16.00
A couple of the special aspects of Bwin's World Cup betting are the group and head-to-head specials.
Spain is too hot a favorite to win Group H ahead of Switzerland, Chile and Honduras, but the 1.80 odds on it scoring seven goals or more in its three group games must appear very tempting, as do the 1.75 odds on it scoring more goals in the group stage than England does.
England faces the USA, Algeria and Slovenia in Group C, so the 3.00 on it winning a perfect nine points from its three games must look pretty good. The most likely option is seven points (two wins and a draw), which is paying 2.75 and would still be good enough for England to win the group.
As for Brazil, its group odds are a little longer, given it faces Portugal, the Ivory Coast and North Korea. The five-time champions are 1.75 to win the group, and 3.50 to win nine points. Odds of 1.90 are being quoted on Brazil's attacking style earning it seven goals or more.
