Group H Betting Odds

Considered one of the weaker groups at Brazil 2014, Group H is likely to be won by Belgium who sport World Cup 2014 odds of -175 and are considered one of the favorites to win the tournament. The resurgent Russians, pegged at +200 to win the group, will rely on solid defense, while South Korea tries to get their derailed national side back on track in time to compete. Algeria is a distant longshot at +2800, and is not expected to advance.

Here are the Group H teams and their odds to win the group at Bovada.

Belgium (-175)

After entering World Cup qualifying as a dark horse that was expected to struggle for a World Cup berth, Belgium has quickly emerged as a force to be reckoned with. The Belgians are the favorites in World Cup 2014 betting to win Group H, and at 14/1 trail only Brazil, Argentina, Germany and Spain as favorites to win their first World Cup title.

Russia (+200)

Russia failed to qualify for the World Cup in 2006 and 2010. But under the guidance of manager Fabio Capello, they won their qualifying group and are well positioned to advance to the Round of 16 at Brazil 2014. Aside from Belgium, the biggest threat to Russia is South Korea’s technically sound offensive machine, which will test Russia’s revamped and stingy defense. With World Cup 2014 odds of +200 to win the group, Russia may be a dark horse team to watch.

South Korea (+750)

As host nation, South Korea reached the semifinal of the 2002 World Cup. But it has been all downhill from there. After finishing second in their qualifying group to Iran, the Koreans barely edged out Uzbekistan for a World Cup berth. Now, with questions about the stability of the squad’s goalkeeping and overall team cohesion, it may be expecting too much for South Korea to advance beyond the Group Stage.

Algeria (+2800)

Algeria is participating in their second straight World Cup, but as was the case in 2010, the Algerians may be hard pressed to score a goal in the tournament. At +2800 to win Group H, Algeria is a World Cup 2014 betting longshot; a squad deficient in every position, who are likely to be outclassed in each of their three Group Stage matches.
