All-Time World Cup Record: 7-12-6

Odds:

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com, Chile has been given 66/1 odds to win the World Cup. Spain is the favorite coming in with odds of 4/1.

2010 World Cup Qualifying:

Chile qualified through the competitive CONMEBOL group where it finished second of 10 teams, falling only behind Brazil. Chile went 10-5-3 during qualifying, scoring 32 goals and allowing 22. Chile actually tied in points (33) with Paraguay, but it had a better goal differential, so it finished second in the standings.

Betting Analysis:

Chile is in Group H for the World Cup, joining favorite Spain, Switzerland, and Honduras. Spain will be tough for Chile to get past, but Switzerland and Honduras can easily be beaten. We expect Chile to reach the round of 16, but from there it is a crapshoot. Chile has struggled against the top level teams and is coming off a recent loss to mid-level Mexico. For Chile to win it all, it is going to take a lot of good play from its team and a lot of bad play from its opponents.
