Odds on World Cup in South Africa
Bookmakers are already paying attention. Like everyone else they are trying to figure out exactly who will be the best in the world for the next 4 years. It just doesn't get bigger in sports.
Now while my personal favorites are Argentina, Brazil, and Germany the odds are not in my favor. For my fellow Americans that prefer Team USA things look even worse (though we should get through the first round, barely). Even England is looking a bit less like a contender than usual according to the odds.

It is nice to see America in the middle of the pack though. I wouldn't take the bet with an expectation to win, but $10 could turn into a tidy sum if the U.S.A. could win. Then again I think Europe would implode and South America would riot if we did. Which would be almost as much fun to see because of that kind of win.
I still say it's Argentina or Germany to win. Brazil can never be discounted though. Spain on the other hand is overrated in my opinion. But how do you feel? Which team is your favorite?
