World Cup: USA vs England

England was beaten by the USA as a huge underdog before, a major reason they are taking their favorite status seriously here Saturday.

Mind you, that last major upset was in the 1950 World Cup, so it's not exactly fresh in the minds of Wayne Rooney and company.

World Cup Injuries: Are the Odds Affected?

Injuries are nothing new to soccer, but as the World Cup is near several teams have big players that will miss some matches in the tournament and some that will not be able to play this summer.

Germany’s odds to win the World Cup have gone down, as they were at +1200 a month and a half ago and now Bovada has them at +1400.
