Group C Betting Odds
Group C is considered by many to be the weakest group at Brazil 2014. However, Group C may also provide some of the most intriguing World Cup 2014 betting opportunities. Colombia, the group’s de facto home team, are listed at -150 to win the group. They are followed by Japan and Ivory Coast, both at +400, followed by Greece at a surprise +900.
Here are the Group C teams and their odds to win the group at Bovada.
As the only South American team in Group C, Colombia will enjoy the support of partisan fans during Group Stage matches. As a result, Colombia also sports World Cup 2014 betting odds of 25/1. Another key to success for Colombia will be their dominating offense, which no other squad in the group can match.
Ivory Coast (+400)
Ivory Coast will be making their third consecutive World Cup appearance at Brazil 2014. Young and inexperienced, the Elephants do possess extraordinary offensive talent, which supporters will be hoping will break through on the game’s biggest stage. However, they will take to the pitch against three veteran squads, all prepared to take advantage of youthful mistakes.
The 2011 Asian Cup champs also sit at +400 in Group C, but are distant 150/1 longshots in World Cup 2014 betting. The best technically skilled team in the group, they are more likely to thwart the opposition than to dominate them. However, Japan has looked strong in recent European friendlies and have veterans with big game experience that could carry them to the Group of 16.
Currently the No. 10 ranked team in the world, Greece will be looking to prove they are more than just a great defensive force. Despite a strong qualification round, they sport the weakest World Cup 2014 odds in Group C. One of the keys to success for Greece at Brazil 2014 will be demonstrating that they can score more than one goal per game.
