2010 World Cup Betting – North Koreans Looking To Limit Damage Against Brazil

2010 World Cup Betting - Brazil vs. North Korea2010 World Cup betting players are always looking for an upset, and they’ve got a lot to deal with in Group G, which is home to Portugal, Brazil, the Ivory Coast and North Korea.  However, the second match of this group is a no-brainer between Brazil and the North Koreans, and this should end up being a romp.

Brazil North Korea Betting – Tuesday, June 15, 2:30 PM ET

The Samba Kings are going for their sixth World Cup, and they’re the only country to appear in all 19 editions of the biggest tournament in the World.  But this team is a little different from the Brazilians we’re used to seeing, as in they’re a more functional team instead of the ones we’ve seen dance all over opponents.  Manager Dunga, who captained the 1994 side to the World Cup, is a former defensive midfielder who teaches discipline, and he raised some eyebrows by leaving the likes of Ronaldinho and Adriano at home.  But this is still Brazil, and Kaka and Robinho are always capable of magic.  Also, Luis Fabiano has been tipped in many 2010 World Cup predictions to be a darkhorse to win the Golden Boot, given to the leading goalscorer in the tournament, and he’ll be counted on to put away the chances fed to him by the midfielders.

If there’s one thing that we know about the North Koreans, it’s that that’s going to defend with everything they have.  To get here, manager Kim Jong-Hun used a 5-4-1 (five defenders, four midfielders) formation, but five defenders may not even be enough.  Only three players (captain and forward Hong Yong-Jo, forward Jong Tae-Se and midfielder Ahn Young-Hak) play outside of North Korea, and what’s worse, Jong-Hun listed forward Kim Myong-Won as a goalkeeper, which limits his attacking options.

If you’re betting on soccer and feel like taking a risk, the North Koreans are rated at +2500, and that’s probably being a big generous.  Brazil is favored at -1100, and a draw comes in at +750, and really, this is all about how big the margin is going to be.  This is the first meeting for these two countries, and the North Koreans will hope to draw from their last (and only other) World Cup appearance at England 1966, when they upset Italy 1-0 in the final match of the group stages to make it to the knockout round, where they were beaten by Portugal 5-3.  However, just scoring one goal in this match and the North Koreans will consider this success.  If you bet on North Korea and they win, we recommend you go out and stock up on lottery tickets.

Online betting pick: Brazil -1100
