Bet on the 2008 Beijing Men’s Soccer Tournament

The Favorite: Brazil

Odddsmakers from online sports book Bodog have established Brazil as an 11/4 favorite to win the 2008 Summer Olympics Men’s Soccer Tournament. The Brazilians bring a solid squad into the tournament, led by the incredible Ronaldinho. While Ronaldinho is the star of the Brazil soccer team, the success of the squad might depend on how well central defender Breno Borges plays, especially if the country faces off against Argentina.

The Value: Argentina

Despite Brazil being the favorites to win the tournament, Argentina boasts one of the best young teams in the world. Nicolas Burdisso, Fernando Gago, Ever Banega, Ezequeil Garay, Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano and Sergio Aguero make up one of the most talented groups of players the world has ever seen. For that, Argentina might be the true favorites to win the gold medal come the end of the 2008 Summer Olympics.

The Long Shot Sleeper: Belgium

While oddsmakers have made Belgium a 25/1 long shot to win the tournament, they have several exciting players that could make a difference once the Olympics start. Sebastein Pocognoli, Kevin Mirallas and Maarten Martens are expected to turn in solid performances and Vincent Kompany is force in the middle. With a few breaks, Belgium could make a deep run in this summer’s tournament.
