World Cup Live Betting

| 17.05.2010

The world’s greatest football tournament kicks off on June 11 and there are plenty of World Cup live betting opportunities throughout the tournament with Ladbrokes.

Soccer City in Johannesburg will be the host when punters get the first chance to take part in World Cup in-play betting, as South Africa open the tournament against Group A opponents Mexico, allowing you to place a World Cup 2010 bet in play on the game.

There will be plenty of interest in the World Cup live betting odds as millions around the world tune in to see how the first ever African hosts of the FIFA World Cup begin their campaign, particularly against a strong Mexico side who coasted through qualification in a group with USA and Honduras.

It means that the talented young Mexicans will start as favourites but keep an eye on the World Cup live odds, as a confident start from the hosts and a boisterous home crowd could well affect the outcome.

There will be plenty of opportunities throughout the four weeks, and Ladbrokes will offer 2010 World Cup live betting for each of the 64 games.

As well as the opening encounter providing a great opportunity, other tasty looking ties include England’s vital opener in Rustenburg against the USA, with Fabio Capello’s men looking to get off to a great start in Group C.

Clint Dempsey, Landon Donovan and Jozy Altidore are big players that England will be familiar with from the Premier League, and they are sure to figure in World Cup football bet in play markets, as will the likes of Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.

Brazil against Portugal is another group stage highlight, and Spain v Chile could be a tighter affair than many may expect, given Chile’s impressive recent run making them worth a look for online World Cup betting, especially as that game may decide the order of the top two in Group H.

And with the world cup final also set to be staged at Soccer City in Johannesburg on July 11, it means punters will have no shortage of games to chhose from for FIFA World Cup live betting on Ladbrokes.
