2010 World Cup Qualifying:

Germany qualified for the World Cup by winning its UEFA Group 4 qualifying group. Germany was paired with a weaker field and it went 8-0-2 to score 26 points, besting second-place Russia by four points. Germany scored 26 goals and allowed just five in the 10 games. The two ties were both against Finland.

Betting Analysis:

Germany didn’t have any trouble qualifying as it had three of the top five scorers in its group, led by Miroslav Klose, who had seven goals, while Lukas Podolski had six. For the World Cup, Germany is in Group D with Australia, Serbia, and Ghana. Germany is clearly the favorite to win its group and the key from that point on will be in goal keeping. The Germans have the ability to score, but the games where it has slipped up came in allowing too many goals. In World Cup play, goal tending is usually the key to a team’s success, and for that reason, we would stay shy of Germany.
