William Hill have taken some mammoth bets on the 2010 World Cup including 80 000 euros on Germany to win outright at odds of 14/1 and a further 1000 000 euros on Germany at odds of 13/2 . However the 1/2 million euro bet from a european telephone client on Germany at odds of 10/11 to eliminate Spain in their Semi Final match on Wednesday is exceptional . "We cannot recall ever having taken a bigger stake on a World Cup match and the potential profit from the bet is 454,000 euros' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. Not suprisingly William Hill have now cut the odds of Germany to qualify for the World Cup Final . However it would seem that the customer did not shop around for the best price as Bet365 offer evens for Germany to qualify . Germany have been very impressive throughout the Tournament and bookmakers now make Germany second favourites to win the 2010 World Cup behind Netherlands who beat Uruguay 3-2 on Tuesday evening . Anyone still fancying Spain should go to Ladbrokes who offer a standout 9/4 to win outright .
