World Cup 2010 Predictions: Group G
The so called “Group of Death” where two of the world’s top national teams will play against each other.
Brazil is considered the favorite here, over Portugal, which I personally disagree, but this is what the bookmakers are putting out.
The first game is on the 15th in 15:00 BST and it’s between Ivory Coast and Portugal.
The other one is in the same day but at 19:30 BST and it’s between Brazil and North Korea.
Here are the odds given by BETFAIR.COM for this group:
|Group G||Team:||Group Winner Odds:||To Qualify:|
Brazil is considered to be the favorite in this group. Not taking Ronaldinho and Adriano, seemed odd, and we shall see how much that will affect Brazil’s overall shape. Apparently Dunga has decided to leave these 2 noticeable names because of their bad shape during this season, and perhaps he was right.
Anyways Brazil has enough quality players to make it to the final. Going for that 1.64 to top the group, combined with that 1.16 to qualify seems like a rational and logical bet. The Accumulated odds are 1.90, that Brazil, will qualify as being 1st in the group, seems like too much, so hurry up and take advantage of that.
Portugal has also exceptional players. I have no doubt that they will qualify, although they hardly made it to the finals. That 1.72 to qualify seems like a safe and logical bet, so be sure to not overlook it.
Ivory Coast is another African representative , that will probably have a lot of crowd support, which might give them and edge. Odds of 1.92 to qualify out of the groups, seem good. If you are hoping on Portugal failing to show their best, then I recommend going with Ivory Coast on this one.
North Korea had the miserable luck to get in this group. I do not know much about them, since they seem pretty isolated from the rest of the world because of their politics and stuff, but I doubt they will manage to do anything in this group. If you however know something we don’t, feel free to share it.
This is what we think this group will look like:
3. Ivory Coast
4. North Korea
|Group A||Group B||Group C||Group D||Group E||Group F||Group G||Group H|
