Sports Gambling - FIFA World Cup Begins June 11

Sports gambling excitement is building for the FIFA World Cup online sports gambling soccer tournament that will take place June 11-July 11 in South Africa.

Sports gambling anticipation will reach a fever pitch for the ultimate world class online sports gambling soccer tournament that is held every four years at rotating venues.

World Cup betting fans will have one month of the best soccer action imaginable as the top players in the world will play for their countries to make for the best possible teams that could ever be built.  The tournament is comprised of 32 teams that are broken off into eight groups of four teams each.

Italy beat the World Cup odds in 2006 to reign as the defending champions of the event.  The Italians have won the World Cup a total of four times and had previously scored championships in 1982, 1938, and 1934.  Brazil has the most World Cup champion ships with a total of five with the latest being in 2002.

Germany has three World Cup championships with the last one being in 1970.  Argentina and Uruguay each have two World Cup titles while France and England have one World Cup title apiece.  The United States best finish ever was third place in 1930 which is the only time that they have finished in the top four.

Brazil will be one of the top sports gambling commodities in the World Cup as they have won two out of the last four tournaments in 2002 and 1994 and finished second in 1998.  They will play in Group G this year which has been referred to as “The Group of Death” as Korea, Cote d’Ivoire and Portugal will also compete in that division.

Brazil is one of the most popular teams that you can make a World Cup football bet with as they have a total World Cup record of 64 wins, 14 losses, and 14 draws.

England will be another top sports gambling choice for World Cup action as the passion of their countrymen is second to none and their ability is considerable as well.  It is interesting to note, however, that despite the hype England has not made the championship game since winning the title in 1966.
