Sports Gambling - Brazil Opens Camp

Sports gambling anticipation continues to grow for the FIFA World Cup and Brazil will once again be an online sports gambling favorite to win the championship.

Sports gambling fans that don’t even follow soccer are aware of the excellence of Brazil and this makes them a potentially expensive online sports gambling commodity.

Brazil has won the World Cup betting title five previous times and is a co-favorite with Spain to win it all yet again in 2010. Brazil opened preparation with a training camp that was missing three players that were going to participate in the Champions League final with Inter Milan.

Goalkeeper Julio Cesar, winger Maicon, and defender Lucio.  In addition to those players Ronaldinho, Adriano, Ronaldo, and Neymar were dropped from the squad, which has caused quite a stir with fans and players alike.

Brazil coach Dunga led his team to a first place showing in the South American qualifying is please with the players that he has with him in preparation for soccer’s ultimate sports gambling event.  The players are supporting him as of now.

“Dunga is an excellent coach and his coaching numbers reflect this,” said Robinho, a top Brazilian forward.  “There will always be critics.  It is impossible to satisfy everyone.  But I think Brazil is equipped to win the title.”

Brazil is coming off a disappointing finish with the 2006 World Cup odds as they were upset by France in the quarterfinals.  Since Dunga has taken over Brazil has changed the emphasis to team play and defense and turning away from the “star system” that the coach believes is not enough to get over the hump for the World Cup championship.

Kaka is one of the biggest sports gambling names that will compete in the World Cup for Brazil.  A midfielder for Real Madrid, Kaka was the 2007 World Player of the Year and has 74 caps with 25 goals.

Luis Fabiano is another key component of a Brazilian team that will be amongst the most popular to make a World Cup football bet with.  Fabiano has 25 goals in 36 caps and is a powerful attacker from his forward position which fits perfectly into the strategy of Dunga.
