World Cup: Honduras Preview

Honduras is the long shot to win Group H and are the lowest ranked team in the group, but they have a good defense and with the solid offenses that the teams in the group have they have a shot to make it to the playoffs, albeit a small one.

Honduras is in Group H with Spain, Chile, and Switzerland.

Bovada has Honduras at +50000 to win the World Cup and at +2000 to win Group H.

League: 

World Cup: Switzerland Preview

Switzerland won their qualifying group and they play a great team game, but getting out of Group H with the likes of Spain and Chile will not be easy.

Switzerland is in Group H with Spain, Chile, and Honduras.

Bovada has Switzerland at +20000 to win the World Cup and at +900 to win Group H.

League: 

World Cup: Chile Preview

Chile looked solid in the South American World Cup qualification process and they have a great offense, which gives them a good shot to make it out of group play.

Chile is in Group H with Spain, Switzerland, and Honduras.

Bovada has Chile at +6600 to win the World Cup and at +475 to win Group H.

League: 

World Cup: Spain Preview

Spain has the best odds to win Group E as well as the World Cup and it is not hard to see why with the dynamic offense that they have.

Spain is in Group H with Chile, Switzerland, and Honduras.

Bovada has Spain at +400 to win the World Cup and at -400 to win Group H.

League: 

World Cup - Group H Preview

Spain is the big favorite to win Group H and with good reason, as they are stacked and finally have the “can’t win the big one” monkey off their back after winning the 2008 European Championships.

Spain (-400) has never done very well in the World Cup, as even though have played in it 12 times their best showing was way back in 1950 when they made the quarterfinals.

League: 

World Cup: Ivory Coast Preview

Ivory Coast may not be the highest ranked team from Africa, but they may be the best and they have a great offense that is exciting to watch. * Note: Expect Ivory Coast odds to increase greatly after June 5 as captain Didier Drogba suffered a broken arm in a tune-up match.

Bovada has Ivory Coast at +2800 to win the World Cup and at +400 to win Group G

Even though Ivory Coast is lucky that the World Cup is being held on African solid they are a little unlucky that they are in the Group of Death.

League: 

World Cup: Portugal Preview

Portugal has the second best odds to win Group G and while they barely qualified for South Africa they are the third ranked team in the world and they have a solid defense.

Bovada has Portugal at +5000 to win the World Cup and at +350 to win Group G.

Portugal is in the Group of Death and beating Ivory Coast, who may be the best team from Africa, and Brazil will be far from easy.

League: 

World Cup: Brazil Preview

Brazil is the odds on favorite to win Group G, which has been called the Group of Death, but they are not a lock to make it out with the very strong teams of Portugal and Ivory Coast in the group.

Brazil is in Group G with Portugal, Ivory Coast, and North Korea.

Bovada has Brazil at +500 to win the World Cup and at -222 to win Group G.

League: 

World Cup: Group G Preview

Brazil is the favorite to win Group G, but winning it will not be easy, as in this World Cup this is the Group of Death.

Brazil (-222) has the best odds to win Group G and they recently overtook Spain as FIFA’s top-ranked team. It is interesting that Group G is the group of death since North Korea is the lowest ranked team by FIFA playing in South Africa.
