Bet the 2010 World Cup
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have Spain the slight favorites to win with a betting line of +155 while Germany comes in at +165. A regulation draw has a money line of +230.

Germany has been written off many times this World Cup, but in elimination play, they have had the toughest road and made it look easy, disposing of England and Argentina while scoring four goals in each contest. Germany has played very well since losing to Serbia in group play and they deserve more respect than they are getting.

Spain has been seemingly skating by this whole World Cup despite coming in as the favorites to win it all. They have won just one game by more than one goal and not faced the type of talent that Germany has. David Villa has scored five goals for Spain while the rest of the team has just one combined. Spain will have to get others involved as Germany will be keying in on Villa.

Spain hasn’t put together a whole game yet and while it still could, after five games in the World Cup it would seem if they haven’t done it yet, they aren’t going to now. Germany seems to really be clicking and their offense is overwhelming. We like Germany and the over in this game.

Our World Cup Free Pick for this matchup is: GERMANY +165 and OVER 2.5
