World Cup: Group Stage B Preview

Argentina is the big team on Group B, but they are not a lock to win it, especailly if they played like they did in World Cup qualifying matches.

Argentina is the big favorite to win Group B posted at -225 and while they have a stacked team and, perhaps the best player in the world, they did not look great in qualifying under coach Diego Maradona. They have a solid offense with Barcelona’s wonder Lionel Messi and one of the best central midfielders in the world in Liverpool’s Javier Mascherano.

MLS Betting Kicks Off in 2010

The MLS season begins this Thursday with the expansion Philly Union a huge +500 underdog to open the season. For a while, a strike threatened the season, but a deal was struck and play is set to begin with Real Salt Lake looking to repeat as champions.

Defending champion Real Salt Lake is a solid team, but they lost a few key players from last season’s title team. However, they still have Kyle Beckerham, Robbie Findlay Clint Mathis, Nick Rimando, and Javier Morales, so they will still be a dangerous team and a solid pick to repeat.
