Confederations Cup Betting – Group B

Group B concludes tonight and according to the odds, there is not much doubt about the outcome in either match.

Again like last night, both matches are kicking off simultaneously, as is always the case with the final round of group matches in major international tournaments.

Onto the the least obvious outcome first, Nigeria V Spain, and the online bookmakers are pricing it up as follows..

Nigeria 15.00 – Draw 6.50 – Spain 1.20

A draw is enough to see Spain top the group, and keep the prospects of the dream ‘Spain V Brazil’ final, alive (as Spain need to top the group to avoid Brazil in the semi-final). Defeat for the Spanish could see them eliminated, but it would have to be one hell of a beating.

The second game is even more of a mismatch on paper. The bookmakers are pricing it up as follows…..

Uruguay 1.002 – Draw 81.00 – Tahiti 151.00

I’m sure we’ve been here before with Tahiti, it was the same with the Spain fixture earlier in the competition, for a £100.00 bet on Uruguay, you will get 20p back – you would probably get better interest from a bank for your £100.00, and that’s saying something these days!

Again, the Bet365 0-0 bore draw refund is available on this match, giving you your money back on all pre-match Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecast bets, if the match finishes 0-0.

Onto the outright winner betting and even last night’s thrashing of Italy hasn’t seen Brazil reinstated as favourites, Spain look like they will be there until their tournament ends, either way.

Confederations Cup Betting – Outright Winner

Spain – 2.10
Brazil – 2.37
Italy – 8.50
Uruguay – 15.00
Nigeria – 151.00
