Brazil Make Their Intentions Clear

WORLD CUP BETTING: Brazil progressed with ominous confidence whilst the Netherlands failed to spark into life again, making for an intriguing quarter final.

Dunga’s Brazil have not provided the Samba rhythms that people normally associate with Brazil but they have certainly shown a solidity that is required to win a World Cup. They dismantled a very game Chile side 3-0 who were keen to attack Brazil throughout the first half. Brazil have been pushed to clear fav now, 5/2 from 7/2 at Ladbrokes and Paddy Power. This would reflect the fact that should Brazil beat the Netherlands in the quarters, they would have a very winnable semi final against Ghana or Uruguay.

The Netherlands booked their passage to the quarters after beating Slovakia 2-1. Netherlands are largely unchanged in the market, given their impending quarter final with Brazil. Whilst the Slovakia goal was a penalty in the 94th minute, you can’t help but feel the Dutch should have put this to bed a lot sooner. They have a wealth of attacking talent but only Robben seems to possess a spark. Betdaq have a market leading 8/1 about the Dutch.

Robben was on the score sheet but all seems a bit late for him in the top goalscorer market, 80/1 with Bet365. Van Persie again failed to find the net, his odds drifting to 50/1 at Skybet. Robinho finally got off the mark and Totesport’s 50/1 reflects the fact that Brazil are expected to progress but really he has left it too late. Luis Fabiano however got his 3rd of the competition, Victor Chandler slashing him from 7/1 to 7/2. Unfortunately for Robert Vittek, joint top scorer on 4, his Slovakia bowed out yesterday, leaving his odds for top scorer anything from 16/1 to 100/1.
