World Cup Odds: Uruguay and Costa Rica Shake Up Knockout Stage

Betting On The 2014 Fifa World Cup







The World Cup doesn’t always go as planned. When knockout play begins this weekend, the soccer betting community will see a variety of sides competing in the sudden death festivities. High profile teams like Italy and England will not be included.

In a tournament where every team is capable of great things, soccer fans often take a What-Have-You-Done-For-Me approach when betting on the game. For that reason, while the absence of some countries may perplex, the emergence of other programs is worth more in the long run.

Though Costa Rica is the team to finish from Group D on top, they are only 40/1 to win the World Cup outright. Considering that they’ll begin their quest Sunday against Greece, who has even lower odds, one can’t help but take a second look.

Colombia walked away from Group C unscathed, but they are sixth in the sportsbook and are 18/1 to win the entire competition. Can James Rodriguez and Jackson Martinez continue to fill the net when the competition gets tougher?

The uncertainty adds to the charm of the tournament.
