Online Casino Firm Offers Favorable World Cup Wagering
According to online casino firm Bodog, this year’s World Cup wagering will set new records in the world of sports betting. The firm introduced its list of wagers, including the online casino world’s largest selection of proposition bets, shortly before the 2006 FIFA World Cup opened in Germany. And while traditional football fans in Europe are flocking to bet online, casino and sports betting fans in the U.S. are also taking part in record numbers to support Team USA.
According to the online casino firm’s CEO Calvin Ayre, Bodog is prepared for the record number of wagers and is even offering a large number of innovative proposition wagers. Will the U.S. advance to the second round, Ayre asks? The online casino firm has listed the U.S. at 4/1 odds to w?n Group E and 5/2 to advance to the round of 16. Team USA are at 40/1 to w?n the tournament, which would give the nation its first World Cup title. The first game of the tournament featuring Costa Rica and Germany had the online casino list Germany as the firm favorite.
For those online casino fans wanting to back the winner, Bodog has listed Brazil as an 11/5 favorite to w?n the World Cup while Germany is the second choice at 7/1. Wagers are also being taken by the online casino firm on the tournament’s top scorer. Brazil’s Ronaldinho Gaucho tops the list as the 7/1 favorite, closely followed by his teammate Ronaldo Nazario at 9/1.
