Betting on the 2010 World Cup came to life today as the Racing Post published a bumper 96 page guide to World Cup betting . The football section of the Racing Post is widely read and Bookmakers generally expect strong support for the headline tips from the papers football experts . Headline tip for the World Cup from Racing Post chief football analyst Mark Langdon is Spain who are also tipped by James Milton . The other main recommendation from the well regarded Kevin Pullein , Mark Langdon and Dan Childs is Holland at top price of 11/1 with Victor Chandler . The top price available for Spain this morning was the 9/2 with Coral and Totesport . However the Tote suprisingly made this price only available on the internet or by phone therefore denying thousands of loyal punters across the country of a value bet . This was a rather strange decision by Totesport as generally bookmakers who are represented across all three channels will hold their best prices longest in shops . Hats off to Corals for maintaining an industry top price across all channels particuarly as it was also a clear arbitrage situation . It is unlikely the 9/2 Spain will be available tomorrow so anyone who fancies the Spaniards spearheaded by Fernando Torres and David Villa should have a punt with Corals today
