LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – July 2, 2010) – There are now eight teams left in the 2010 World Cup, with the quarter finals taking place on Friday and Saturday. Spain were the big movers on the outright market after a patient 1-0 win over Portugal in the last sixteen, with the winning strike coming from David Villa. You can now bet on Spain to win the World Cup at odds of 11/4 with World Cup betting specialists Victor Chandler.
Brazil remain the favourites to lift the World Cup for a sixth occasion, with Victor Chandler offering World Cup odds of 5/2 that Dunga’s team are victorious on 11th July. They are certainly in the easier half of the draw, although Holland could be tough opposition for them in Port Elizabeth on Friday and the Dutch are available at odds of 15/2 to go all the way.
Meanwhile the Top Goalscorer market is really warming up after David Villa joined Gonzalo Higuain on four goals scored in the 2010 World Cup to date. The Spanish number seven has been excellent throughout the competition and is now the 7/4 favourite to win the Golden Shoe. The Barcelona striker will fancy his chances of finding the net against Paraguay in the quarter final.
However, Higuain has managed to reach four goals in just three games played and many people might want to back the Real Madrid striker instead at odds of 9/4 with Victor Chandler. Indeed, Argentina are one of just two teams that have a 100% record in the competition to date and Diego Maradona is 4/1 to lift the World Cup just as he did as a player twenty-four years ago.
Victor Chandler will be offering an excellent live In-Play betting service on all the 2010 World Cup quarter finals, along with the semi-finals and final on 11th July.
