2014 World Cup Predictions: Belgium favored at 14-1

Belgium - 2014 World Cup PredictionsIf there was any team that could be considered a dark horse in 2014 World Cup predictions and upset the favored host country or its European neighbors, it would be the Belgium national team. Les Diables Rouges (The Red Devils) have been somewhat of a work in progress but by their recent play and qualifications, head coach Marc Wilmots has found the proper balance of chemistry. Bookmakers in Vegas have Belgium favored at 14-1 as the fifth soccer betting choice to win the most coveted tournament on the planet. One of the founding members of FIFA, the Rode Duivels will be making their 12th appearance at the Finals but have never hoisted the coveted Jules Rimet trophy in victory.

2014 World Cup Betting: Spain Odds at 7-1

Spain Odds to Win 2014 World CupApparently being #1 in the world doesn't account for much these days. Despite having the top spot and a nearly 200-point advantage over Germany on the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings, La Furia Roja (The Red Fury) have been listed as longshots to win the most coveted soccer tournament on the planet. 2014 World Cup betting at sportsbooks have Spain odds to win set at an underdog price of 7-1 meaning for every $100 dollars wagered, $700 would be returned. That being said, Spain is no stranger to hoisting the Jules Rimet trophy in victory having claimed the title in South Africa (2010) and will enter the tournament in Brazil as reigning champions.

Germany Odds: Betting Favorites to win 2014 World Cup

Argentina Odds to Win World CupDespite being ranked #2 in FIFA/Coca-Cola rankings, the Nationalmannschaft or German National Team, have been listed as the third favorite to win perhaps the most well know soccer tournament in the world. Germany odds to win the 2014 World Cup still have the squad listed as 5/1 betting favorites but follow Argentina and Brazil on the big board. Having last hoisted the sacred Jules Rimlet trophy at Italia '90, the nation will count on the experience of players like Miroslav Klose (Lazio), Nicolai Müller (Mainz 05), Thomas Müller and Bastian Schweinsteiger (Bayern Munich) to prove Vegas and the handicappers wrong.
