Japan World Cup Odds

Not know for being a soccer power, Japan hopes to change all that when it begins play in the 2010 World Cup.

Japan World Cup History:

Number of Previous World Cup Appearances: 3

Last Appearance: 2006

Best Finish: Round of 16 (2002)

All-Time World Cup Record: 2-6-2

Odds:

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com, Japan has been given 600/1 odds to win the World Cup. Spain is the favorite coming in with odds of 4/1.

2010 World Cup Qualifying:

Japan qualified for the World Cup by playing through AFC Group A. Japan went 4-1-3 in the eight-game format, finishing with 15 points to finish second behind Australia for the two qualifying spots. Japan’s lone loss came against Australia, 2-1. Japan scored 11 goals during the qualifying process while allowing six.

Betting Analysis:

Japan is in Group E for the World Cup along with Holland, Denmark, and Cameroon. While Holland is the favorite to win the group, Denmark and Cameroon could be beatable for Japan. Unfortunately, Japan has not been playing well as of late, losing its last four games heading into the World Cup. Japan’s last win was 2-0 over Bahrain, which is not a World Cup team. A few breaks is all a soccer team needs to win a game, but seeing Japan string together a few breaks multiple times in a month is hard to expect. Despite the 600/1 odds, we suggest staying clear of Japan.
