Here are the Group D teams and their odds to win the group at Bovada.
Italy is sending a veteran-laden squad to Brazil 2014, featuring a number of players who were part of the 2006 World Cup championship team. The Azzurri will face a pair of teams, Uruguay and England, with revenge in their hearts. Italy denied Uruguay a spot on the podium at the Confederations Cup, defeating them in the bronze medal game, and eliminated England in the quarterfinal at Euro 2012.
Holding down the No. 6 spot in FIFA’s world rankings, Uruguay sits alongside Italy at 22/1 in World Cup 2014 betting. Following their loss to Italy at the 2013 Confederations Cup, Uruguay went on a tear, defeating top-tier opponents including Argentina and Colombia, en route to becoming the last national side to qualify for Brazil 2014.
England surprised many of their supporters by overlooking key veterans to name youngsters like Luke Shaw and Ross Barkley to their World Cup 2014 squad. Sporting odds of 28/1 in World Cup 2014 betting, England will be under heavy pressure to win their first World Cup title since 1966, making every Group Stage match a must-win for the Three Lions.
Costa Rica (+5000)
Young and talented, but inexperienced, Costa Rica are +5000 longshots to win Group D. They also sport World Cup betting odds of 100/1 to win the tourney. Costa Rica will travel to Brazil for their fourth World Cup in the nation’s history. Their strengths are defense and goaltending, and they will need them both to compete with the powerhouse competition in Group D.
