Brazil World Cup 2014 Betting tips – Part 2
The World Cup is nearly here, have you placed your bets yet? After last week’s look at some of the early betting opportunities, we continue in the same vain this week with part 2 of our Brazil 2014 betting guide.
Teams E-G
The Ecuador national team have a great record at home but they struggle to win outside of their homeland. In fact, they have not won a competitive game away from home since 2009. As a result, they are unlikely to make it out of Group E and can be backed at 19/20 not to qualify. If they do manage to score any goals, they are most likely to be scored by Felipe Caicedo and you should be backing him to be Ecuador’s top scorer at 11/5 with Unibet.

England fans may not be too optimistic ahead of next month’s tournament but they could console themselves with the 5/4 on offer from Ladbrokes for the Three Lions to go out at the group stages.  A terrible prediction I know (for the English).

France are looking like a much better team than the one that imploded four years ago and should make their way comfortably out of Group E. In fact, they could go even further and can be backed at 11/4 with Betfred to exit at the quarter-final stage.

Germany are expected to have yet another good summer after reaching at least the semi-finals in the last three major tournaments under Coach Joachim Loew. They are evens with Ladbrokes to make it at least as far this year but that’s as good as you will get if you are planning on backing the Germans.

Ghana have prepared meticulously for this tournament and were unlucky to be drawn in such a tough group. However, they are more than capable of causing an upset and are worth a small bet at 3/1 with Betvictor to make it out of Group G. Striker Majeed Waris has been in impressive form this season and is a decent price at 6/1 with Betvictor to top the scoring for the African team.

Nobody is talking about Greece, but they should be. They were very impressive in qualifying and have one of the tightest defences in Europe. They do not score many goals but they have quietly worked their way to number 10 in the FIFA rankings through their consistency. They can be backed at a massive 9/1 with Boylesport to win Group C and some bookies are also still offering 5/2 for them just to qualify for the knockout stages.
