Algeria World Cup History:

Number of Previous World Cup Appearances: 2

Last Appearance: 1986

Best Finish: Group Stage

All-Time World Cup Record: 2-3-1


According to oddsmakers from online sports book, Algeria has been given 700/1 odds to win the World Cup. Spain is the favorite coming in with odds of 4/1.

2010 World Cup Qualifying:

Algeria took part in the Group C qualifier. It went 4-1-1 during qualifying play to finish ahead of Egypt, Zambia, and Rwanda to advance to the World Cup. Algeria actually tied with Egypt and had an equal goal differential, so it was forced to win a playoff, 1-0, to advance to the World Cup.

Betting Analysis:

Algeria is in Group C along with England, USA, and Slovenia. It will be tough for Algeria to reach the round of 16 with two reasonable teams in England and USA competing for the top two spots in the group. Algeria will need to win over Slovenia and hope for a tie or another upset in its remaining two games. Algeria is 10-6-2 in its last 18 games leading into the World Cup, but most of the games were not against World Cup qualifiers. With 700/1 odds, the payout would be nice, but you would need a miracle to hit it.
