World Cup 2010 Betting Sees Holland and Germany Shorten As Bore Draws Pile Up
After 13 games of the 2010 World Cup there have been six drawn games and an alarming lack of goals and excitement .
Whilst bookmakers are enjoying the World Cup courtesy of the fact that the draw generally goes unbacked in 90 minute betting , armchair viewers across the world are becoming increasingly bored with the defensive tactics being employed by most teams .
Sven Goran Erikkson’s Ivory Coast display Tuesday afternoon was typical of the unimaginative tactics that are being employed as teams are too scared to lose their opening game .
Ivory Coast effectively smothered the game from the beginning and will now find qualification from Group G very difficult .
Only one game in the opening six days of the World Cup 2010 has produced more than two goals and hardly any have produced attacking football .
It is no suprise therefore that tournament top scorers’s Germany have been cut in the outright betting and are now top price 9/1 with Blue Square . Germany albeit against poor opposition from downunder produced by far the best attacking display so far in the tournament .
Elsewhere Holland have continued to shorten and are now best price 8/1 with Bet365 and the odds on England winning this World Cup are quite rightly drifting every day and England are now available at 9/1 with Sportingbet .
The tournament is now desperate for goals and excitement , hopefully Brazil and Spain are ready to provide it
