Bet on World Cup

| 17.05.2010

There will be more opportunities than ever to bet on World Cup football with Ladbrokes this summer, as 32 nations look to make history in South Africa.

The World Cup in 2006 saw many people betting on World Cup outcomes, as Italy won their fourth World Cup with victory over France on penalties. Those with a bet on 2010 World Cup may fancy punting on a different winner this time round, and there are several nations to keep in mind when thinking of a bet on World Cup 2010.

Even for those unsure how to bet on World Cup 2010 will find it easy with Ladbrokes, though choosing a bet on the Fifa World Cup winner from several likely candidates might prove trickier. Favourites Brazil and Spain will be many punters’ bet on Fifa World Cup 2010, understandable choices for betting world cup 2010 given the respective sides’ recent fantastic form – Spain have won 25 of their last 26 games.

But Spain have never won the World Cup and star striker Fernando Torres is still making his way back from injury, and Brazil failed to impress in 2006, meaning it might prove worthwhile looking for another bet on football World Cup 2010.

Given their flawless qualifying display, Holland might be a good bet on football World Cup, while England also seem a stronger unit under the stewardship of Fabio Capello and could be many punters’ bet on football world cup 2010.

A great deal of focus will also be on the African sides given that it is the first Fifa World Cup on the continent, with Ivory Coast and Ghana the two African sides most likely to make an impression given the talent in their respective squads, although Ghana will be without their star Michael Essien, and Ivory Coast have still not announced whether Didier Drogba will be fit.

Nonetheless, they both remain outsiders for a World Cup 2010 bet, with the likes of France, Argentina, Portugal and Italy are all deemed more likely to reward those backing them with a bet Fifa World Cup.

It’s sure to be a close-run thing, particularly as the visiting teams adapt to a new experience on African soil, and Ladbrokes will be here with the best world cup betting odds throughout the tournament for those keen to bet World Cup football.
