Heading into the 2014 World Cup Final matching Germany and Argentina, it’s Germany that is getting plenty of attention following the dominating performance over host-nation Brazil in the semifinal earlier this week.
Germany scored, and scored, then scored some more, and then even continued to score after that.
Before one could almost blink, Germany was up 5-0 in the first half and put the game well out of reach. From there, it was merely a send off game for Brazil, as the country came to terms with its first loss on home soil since 1975.
In the other semifinal matchup there was plenty of drama. Through 90 minutes there was no score. Through the extra 30 minutes there was still no score.
Love it or hate it, the game went to penalty kicks between the Netherlands and Argentina. It was Argentina that came out on top 4-2 in the penalty kicks, advancing to the championship final where they will face Germany on Sunday at 3 pm ET on ESPN.
Given the way that Germany looked in the semifinal, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they are favored on 2014 World Cup betting lines available at Bovada Sportsbook. Betting odds are piggybacking off the momentum generated by Germany, and have installed them as -165 favorites to win the World Cup despite the fact that Argentina has won every game they have played. Not even Germany can make that claim, as they drew 2-2 against Ghana in the Group Stage.
Argentina assumes the role of the underdog, coming in at +135 on the payout. The spread between the two payouts isn’t much different, but Germany is the clear favorite.
That betting line is merely the outright 2014 World Cup winner. There are other ways to bet the World Cup final as well. Bovada has formed game lines with various goal lines that shift the payout rather significantly.
In addition, the consolation match between Brazil and the Netherlands has betting odds available as well. This match will be contested on Saturday at 3pm ET, giving soccer fans another game and the host country one more opportunity to have their team close out the 2014 World Cup with a victory and a third place finish. It might not be the finish they were hoping for, but a win would certainly help the sting of the 7-1 defeat to Germany.
