Following the suprise knockout of Brazil and Argentina in the quarter finals this weekend the outright market is very much a three team race .
Germany were most impressive with their 4-0 demolition of Argentina and even though they may still have two very tough games to play starting with Spain in Wednesday’s semi-final in Durban they are best priced 11/5 with Paddy Power to win the tournament .
Spain are generally 15/8 but can be backed at a standout 21/10 with Extrabet .
Meanwhile Holland who fought back brilliantly to beat Brazil seemingly have the simplest route to the final with a semi-final against Uruguay on Tuesday evening in Cape Town . Holland are best priced 9/4 with Victor Chandler in what is turning into a betting bonanza for bookmakers .
Long term favourites Spain are the only poor result left for bookies who stand to make millions on the tournament .
Spain’s David Villa took a firm grip in the race to become tournament top scorer with his fifth goal in yesterday’s quarter final against Paraguay .
Villa is now best priced 4/7 with Bet365 to win the Golden Boot . The only nightmare left for bookies is the double of Spain winning the World Cup and Villa being top scorer which will have been well backed in the run up to the start of the competition .
