Group E Betting Odds
France is a pegged as a -125 favorite to win Group E, considered to be one of the weakest groups at Brazil 2014. The weak draw has provided Group E’s competitors with an opportunity to gain experience, respect, and, in the case of France, exorcise the ghosts of World Cups past.
Here are the Group E teams and their odds to win the group at Bovada.
After a nightmare World Cup experience in 2010, when amidst very public infighting the squad quickly bowed out of the competition, France will be looking for redemption at Brazil 2014. Les Bleus sit at a respectable 20/1 in World Cup 2014 betting, and have a history of bouncing back after poor World Cup performances; winning it all in 1998 after failing to qualify in 1990 and 1994, and reaching the final in 2006 after bowing out in the Group Stage in 2002. Will the trend continue?
Notorious for recording clean sheets in World Cup competition, Switzerland sports World Cup 2014 odds of +250 to win Group E and 100/1 to win the tournament. The squad has only surrendered a grand total of one goal against in their last two World Cup appearances combined, but a lack of offense has prevented them from getting beyond the Group of 16. If the Swiss can find the back of the net, they could be the Cinderella at this year’s World Cup dance.
Ecuador won some big games en route to qualifying for Brazil 2014, but can they win against top-tier talent playing on the road in stadiums that will not be filled with just their supporters? That is the challenge facing Ecuador, who are pegged at +350 to win Group E and 125/1 to win their first title in World Cup 2014 betting. Ecuador will need to shock a European foe to have any chance of advancing.
Honduras is a longshot in both Group E and the tournament, sporting World Cup 2014 odds of +3300 to win Group E and distant 1500/1 odds to win the tournament. The squad has a solid offense, but without a world class defense or stars on the pitch, it may be a very long, yet very short tournament for the Hondurans.
