The 2014 FIFA World Cup begins in just over a week and what better way to enjoy the final weeks of summer than by following the matches in style. For many, the World Cup is the ultimate sporting event, a chance to see some of the greatest players and teams in the world compete for the ultimate prize; the title of World Cup champions. Although we will miss the games being played this year due to the summertime, the excitement is not lost as we will still be able to place wagers on the outcome of the tournament.
Where Can I Bet?
The USA is one of the 16 countries that make up the FIFA World Cup, and the largest of the bunch. In fact, it is the third-largest country by land area, only trailing Russia and Brazil. If you are living in or visiting the country, you will have the chance to bet on the World Cup and a wide variety of bets are available. For example, you can bet on the overall winner of the tournament, the first or third place finishers, and many more.
Which Cup Will Be Most Popular?
The year 2014 will mark the 100th anniversary of the FIFA World Cup and it will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable tournaments in history. With record-breaking numbers of fans expected to attend the games and the possibility of a few upsets, there is plenty to bet on. For example, you can bet on which country will be named the host nation, which team will score the most goals, and which player or team will become the next big thing. All in all, there is more than enough to keep you busy for the entire duration of the World Cup.
Which Country Will Be Best Represented?
Argentina and Brazil are undoubtedly the biggest countries on the planet and it will be interesting to follow their combined efforts during the World Cup. The former is hosting the tournament, while the latter is going to be a strong contender, despite the 2014 FIFA World Cup being played in Brazil. The reason behind Argentina’s underwhelming showing at recent tournaments is that their players consistently get injured, which keeps them from participating fully. As a result, it is uncertain as to whether or not the South American giants will be able to perform during this year’s edition of the World Cup. However, with Lionel Messi at their side, it is hard to bet against them.
What Is The Atmosphere Like In The USA?
Although the USA will not be one of the host countries for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, it will still be a part of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) and it will have the privilege of following the tournament from its relative comfort. As it is an American invention, the sport of football (or soccer as it is known in the USA), it is no wonder that the country is so proud to have hosted the World Cup. The USA is well-known for its love of football and with an array of betting opportunities available, it is a great place to be a fan of the beautiful game.
