Brazil Battle For A Win But Odds Stay

WORLD CUP BETTING: The odds continue to fluctuate in the World Cup outright; Brazil are underway but the bookies aren’t impressed & Portugal looked very ordinary.

Brazil got off to a winning start last night with a 2-1 victory over North Korea but that didn’t prompt a mass rush on the markets. Most firms held their ground at 4/1 (888sport) or 9/2 (Boylesports) and William Hill actually lengthened them out to 9/2 from 4/1.

This is in contrast to the shortening of odds about Germany, Netherlands and Argentina after their wins but Brazil’s win isn’t any less important. North Korea were incredibly resilient, much more so than Germany’s opponents Australia and Brazil showed an ability to dig in. Write them off at your peril.

Spain did have another jump, into 10/3 with many but still available at 7/2 with Betfred and Ladbrokes.

Portugal were flat against Ivory Coast, who weren’t much better under Sven, and both could find breaking down North Korea very hard, and a last 16 with Spain near impossible. Portugal were around the 25 to 28 mark but can now be backed at 33′s in general, 40/1 with Boylesport.

Earlier, 2 outsiders Slovakia and New Zealand got a 1-1 draw, not affecting any outright markets.
