Greece World Cup History:

Number of Previous World Cup Appearances: 1

Last Appearance: 1994

Best Finish: Group Stage

All-Time World Cup Record: 0-3-0


According to oddsmakers from online sports book, Greece has been given 200/1 odds to win the World Cup. Spain is the favorite coming in with odds of 4/1.

2010 World Cup Qualifying:

Greece was part of Stage 2 for the European Qualifying Zone. It went 6-2-2 in a 10-game format, finishing with 20 points, one point outside of group winner, Switzerland. Greece then had to play in a one-game playoff with Ukraine, where the first game resulted in a tie, but the second leg saw a 1-0 Greece victory, allowing it to advance to the World Cup.

Betting Analysis:

Playing in Group B, Greece has a good chance to reach the round of 16 as it is paired with Argentina, Nigeria, and South Korea. While Argentina is a clear favorite to win the group, Nigeria and South Korea are far from solid, so Greece could find a way to pick up two wins. From there, it is a crapshoot, as Greece will need to play the best it ever has to make a run to the title. With never having scored a goal in World Cup play, we would probably stay away from Greece even with the big odds.
