Group C has the potential to be one of the closest groups in this year’s tournament and we have free World Cup 2014 betting tips.
World Cup 2014 betting odds show Colombia are big favourites for this group at 1/4 to qualify with Bet365 while Ivory Coast are evens to qualify with Coral. Japan are just behind Ivory Coast at 6/5 with Betfred before outsiders Greece at 9/4 with Bet365.
As the odds suggest, Colombia should make their way out of this group, especially with the much talked about advantage of playing on their continent. After that for me it is anyone’s game and this group is a really interesting one.
Ivory Coast have many players the Premier League will be familiar with such as Yaya Toure, Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou and Cheick Tiote. There is certainly pedigree to be found in this squad and got to the World Cup unbeaten in qualifying. They were unlucky in 2010 to be drawn with Brazil and Portugal in their group and have an “easier” group this time around.
Greece got the World Cup via a Play-Off against Romania after finishing behind Bosnia in their group on goal difference. This is only Greece’s third World Cup and in the other two they have failed to progress past the group stage. There are plenty of big names in length but few stand out players for the Greeks and it could be a struggle for them.
Japan romped to the World Cup in Asian qualifying and boast the likes of Shinji Kagawa and Keisuke Honda in their squad. Japan managed to progress out of the group in 2010 and 2002 and this is their fourth consecutive World Cup.
Colombia are going to win this group, of this I am pretty confident, even without the injured Falcao they can utilise the likes of Jackson Martinez and James Rodriguez. They were 2nd in South American qualifying and should win this group at 4/5 with William Hill and even made their way in to our group stage accumulator.
I do fancy Ivory Coast to join them and are a good price at evens with Coral to qualify.
