South Korea trimmed from 66/1 to 40/1 to reach World Cup 2014 semi finals
One of the biggest movers in World Cup betting over the last week, was South Korea. The Asian nation, have been trimmed all the way from 66/1 to 40/1 to reach the semi finals at Brazil 2014. It is a little strange, because they have not exactly been lighting things up during their preparations. They lost against Tunisia recently in a disappointing match, and that followed a loss against the USA back in February. The Koreans did secure a 2-0 win over World Cup-bound Greece in between those matches.
Liam Glynn, PR Executive at Boylesports said “In the past 24 hours we have laid a four figure bet on Germany at 6/1 to win the World Cup but at present Brazil remain our biggest losers in the Ante Post book.”
He added “On Tuesday morning, our traders laid South Korea to reach the semi Final at 66/1 and having seen continuous support over the past few hours, they have now clipped the price into 40/1.”
But at the head of the World Cup outright winner market, Brazil have remained the most popular nation, holding their ground as 3/1 shots land the title. At Boylesports, Argentina re 9/2 to win what would be a third World Cup title, with Germany in at 6/1. A lot of backing has been going in for Germany, who have drifted a little bit after being joint 5/1 second favourites alongside Argentina.
In the Name The Finalists market at Boylesports, the Brazil/Argentina option heads the betting at 9/1 with a Spain & Brazil World Cup final priced at 12/1. In the winning continent market, both Europe and South America are currently inseparable 10/11. Punters can back at 7/2 the option of there being a new winner of the World Cup.
