2010 World Cup Qualifying:

Nigeria qualified for the World Cup by starting with a six-game winning streak in Group 4 of the first round of qualifying in the CAF. Nigeria scored 11 goals during the stretch and allowed just one. From there, Nigeria entered Group B where it went 3-0-3 to win the four-team group and advance on. There Nigeria bested Tunisia, Mozambique, and Kenya. The Nigerians scored nine goals and allowed four during the final round.

Betting Analysis:

Nigeria is playing in Group B with Argentina, South Korea, and Greece. Based on the odds, Nigeria is the second best team entering the group, so a spot in the Round of 16 is very possible. Since qualifying, Nigeria has went 2-0-2 with wins over the Congo and North Korea. Should Nigeria reach the tournament format, it will take a great effort to win it all, but any team can beat another team in a one-game situation. While the odds are intriguing at 150/1, it is still a long shot for Nigeria to win the Cup.
