World Cup: Presence of Chile adds extra zing to Group B bet

| 22.05.2014

The question of who will win the World Cup is set to rumble on until right before the final itself takes place at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro on July 13th.

However, waiting until then to place your bets will not only seriously reduce your potential profits, it’s just not really any fun either.

So, will it be 3/1 favourites Brazil, or will Lionel Messi finally come to life for 9/2-shots Argentina?

Or, will a European side such as Germany (11/2) finally break the mould of winning a World Cup in the Americas or, could the unthinkable become reality and England walk away with the trophy for the first time since 1966?

Hmmm…it’s not an easy guessing game for sure, but this is why Ladbrokes customers should seriously consider increasing their chances of picking the winner by exploring their market on which of the eight groups will produce the winner.

For this, look no further than Group B containing Spain, Holland, Chile and Australia at smashing odds of 4/1

Ok, we can probably rule out Australia, but, while many have suggested Spain’s big tournament reign will come to an end in Brazil, write off the double European and current world champions at your peril.

Then we have La Roja’s 2010 World Cup final opponents Holland, coached by incoming Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal.

The Oranje absolutely cruised through qualification undefeated, only dropping two points from their 10 games and many of the faces that propelled them to the final in South Africa are still present.

But it’s the presence of Chile in the group which adds spice to this punt. The South Americans are many people’s dark horses for the tournaments and recent results against football’s established superpowers back this up.

Alexis Sanchez and co drew with Spain in September before beating England at Wembley.

And despite losing out narrowly to both Brazil and Germany in friendlies, DieMannschaft coach Joachim Low admitted Chile had completed outplayed his side in Stuttgart.
