Group F Betting Odds
Little suspense is expected from Group F at Brazil 2014. Argentina reigns as a -400 favorite to win the group, and is second only to host Brazil to win the tournament in World Cup 2014 betting. Group F also features a pair of middleweights who are expected to compete for second place. All eyes will be on Bosnia-Herzegovina and Nigeria in their Group Stage match, with the winner likely to advance. Iran is a +3300 longshot to win Group F, and will be hard pressed to finish above last place.
Here are the Group F teams and their odds to win the group at Bovada.
Two-time World Cup champions Argentina are looking to advance beyond the quarterfinals for the first time since 1990. With World Cup betting odds of 9/2, the Argentines trail only host Brazil to win their third title. Argentina is expected to dominate in the Group Stage with an offense that features Lionel Messi, considered the world’s best player and an 8/1 favorite to be the leading goal scorer at Brazil 2014.
Bosnia-Herzegovina will be making the first World Cup appearance in the nation’s brief history. While they are a solid bet to advance to the Round of 16, the squad is a distant 200/1 longshot in World Cup 2014 betting to win the championship. Bosnia-Herzegovina’s fortunes likely rest with their Group Stage match against Nigeria. However, they have yet to post a victory in five all-time meetings with Iran; a trend they will need to break if they want to advance.
After winning their group at both the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, Nigeria has failed since to post a victory in World Cup competition. The Nigerians are young and talented, and have the ability to produce offense. But aside from veteran goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, they lack quality defensive capability. The 2013 African Cup of Nations champions will need to record points against Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina to advance.
Iran features the longest odds in World Cup 2014 betting. Pegged at +3300 to win Group F and 1500/1 to win the tournament, Iran is unlikely to finish above last place in the group. The bright sport and source of hope for the Iranians is their all-time record against Bosnia-Herzegovina. In their five head-to-head matches, Iran has recorded four wins and a tie. While they have little chance of advancing, Iran may be well positioned to play spoiler in Group F.
