Brazil WC 2014 Kicks off

In a few hours the greatest spectacle after the Olympics would kick off. More than 30 teams would battle it out for the WC Champions tag. Brazil is hosting the WC after a gap of almost 65 years. Some interesting facts of the WC include;

  • Use of goal line technology for the ever so controversial goals,
  • Vanishing spray paints (to allow referee’s a chance to ear mark the spot for free kicks etc),
  • Robots & drones for increased security,
  • Eye popping $ 35 million for the winning team and $ 25 million for the runners up.

Brazil seem to be punter’s favourite.

Following are the odds to win the groups

  • Group A – Brazil minus 600 (risking $6 to win $1 or 6:1 risk reward ratio)
