2014 World Cup – Group G Betting Preview & Soccer Lines

World Cup Futures Betting: Group G

Group G is this year’s World Cup “Group of Death”, and is likely to live up to that billing after Germany, Ghana, the United States and Portugal were all assembled, with te later being arguably some of the best teams in the world, with Germany being a strong possible World Cup winner. [ad-1519080]

Here are the teams in Group G and their odds to win

Germany

(-175 to win World Cup)

Germany is stacked, and blew through qualifying unbeaten. And because of that, have the third best odds to win the World Cup overall. They boast one of the best midfields in the world and as far as goal scoring, managed 36 goals in 10 qualifying games.

They do however have some concerns defensively, which led to some incredible scorelines during their qualifying campaign. It was also one reason they fell short in Euro 2012.

If they don’t tighten up their back line it could be their undoing.

USA

(+1200 to win World Cup)

In 2010, Ghana beat the USA in the round of 16, but this year’s squad seem to be peaking at the right moment entering tournament play, winning their last three matches and six of their last seven after a poor start in World Cup qualifying.

Goalkeeper Tim Howard backstops a good defense, while a counter-attacking offense is led by forward Jozy Altidore.

The midfield is the Americans Achilles though, and will really be tested with by Germany and Portugal.

Ghana

(+1000 to win World Cup)

The surprise of the 2010 World Cup, Ghana moved out of the group stage for the second consecutive time, but will likely struggle to make it out repeat that feat this year.

They will have to beat the USA, who they have done well against, but will still need to upset Portugal or Germany to advance — something that will likely be dashed by a poor defense, which gave up three goals in their last friendly match versus Japan.

That alone will make their quest to win the trophy nothing more than a hope.

Portugal

(+270 to win World Cup)

Besides Spain, Portugal might arguably have the best midfield in the tournament. They beat Sweden in the qualifying playoff and then took the second leg to book the squad’s ticket to Brazil on star Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat trick.

Their defense is a concern though, and the Germans will likely exploit that. Portugal has played well in its last two World Cups, losing to eventual champion Spain 1-0 in the round of 16 in 2010, and being eliminated in the semifinals in 2006.

Prediction: My choices here are Germany and Portugal in that order.

While the Germans do not have a star striker like Portugal’s Ronaldo, the midfield creates a lot of scoring chances with the likes of forwards Thomas Muller and Lukas Podolski, both who are a more than capable up front.

Add to that one of the world’s best playmakers in Mesut Ozil, and a squad almost entirely made up of players from a Bayern Munich team that is running away with the Bundesliga, and no one looks even remotely capable to stop Germany here.
