2010 World Cup Betting – Germany Gets Spanish Revenge For Euro 2008

Germany vs. Spain Betting Odds - 2010 World Cup2010 World Cup betting is about to reach its peak as the semifinals are about to take place in South Africa, and Wednesday’s match will be between three-time champion Germany, who will take on the underachieving Spanish team that has never won the World Cup.  Spain beat Germany in the final of the 2008 European championships, so the Germans will have revenge on their minds.

Germany Spain Betting – Wednesday, 2:30 PM ET

The Germans put on another clinical showing of counterattacking brilliance in their 4-0 demolition of Argentina, their third match of the tournament with four goals.  Germany was up 1-0 after three minutes thanks to Thomas Muller, before scoring three times in the last 22 minutes when Argentina had to chase the game.  Miroslav Klose scored twice to move himself into a tie for second on the all-time World Cup goal-scoring list as the Germans broke out time and time again.  Bastian Schweinsteiger was the man of the match and dominated the Argentinean midfield at both ends of the pitch.  However, a yellow card against the Argentineans will keep Muller out of the match against Spain, and those who are betting on NFL odds will tell you how important suspensions like this can be.

The Spaniards played another subpar match, but got another vital goal from David Villa in a 1-0 win over Paraguay in a match that had two penalties saved in three minutes, the first time that has happened since 1930.  First, Spain’s Iker Casillas stopped Paraguay’s Oscar Cardozo after 59 minutes from the spot, and then two minutes later, Xabi Alonso scored for Spain, but it was called back because a Spanish player was in the area too soon.  Alonso then had his second penalty stopped and the game turned on its head before Villa poked the ball in eight minutes from the end of regulation.

Even NCAA football betting players will be getting in on this action, and the Spanish are +155 favorites in this battle, while the Germans come in at +170, and a draw is rated at +225.  These two have met 20 times, with Germany winning eight and drawing six of those meetings. The Spanish do have that win in the Euro 2008 finals, but that was with a Fernando Torres that was firing on all cylinders.  Some reports are suggesting that the striker will be dropped for this match after a terrible World Cup campaign so far, and that puts a lot of weight on Villa’s shoulders, although he’s been carrying it great so far.  The Germans are just too strong and they’re full of belief, having run through England and Argentina by a score of 8-1.  Go with Germany for the sports betting “upset”.
