World Cup News: Uruguay is Likely to Win in Group A

With the Football World Cup rearing its head at the corner, many people are now making quite a few winning predictions and analysis on the World Cup Betting Odds. The World Cups’s championship landscape might change since crowd favorite

Uruguay, despite its small size, packs serious firepower with striker Diego Forlan, a creative scorer for Spain's Atletico Madrid, leader in the European leagues for scoring during the 2008-09 season. Forlan will be teamep up former Ajax Amsterdam forward Luis Suarez, as part of the main Uruguay offensive. Suarez has played sufficiently for his Dutch squad to draw interest from powerful teams like Barcelona and Manchester United. In the World Cup Brackets, Uruguay is the heavy favorite in Group A that includes South Africa, Mexico, and France.

France is the heaviest team in terms of elite players. However, not many would want to bet on the French squad as their high profile players were virtually played low during the qualifying matches. South Africa also ranks high in the World Cup Soccer picks list. Being a defensive-grounded team, it is a surprising move that Coach Carlos Alberto Parriera is trying to implement a quick passing attack system for his runners. Mexico does not sit well with hardcore football fans after their disastrous qualifiers last season. As a move, Mexico dropped Coach Sven Goran Eriksson in favor of Javier Agguire.

Having said all that, Uruguay will likely come out on top in the Group A rankings. France is a close second but with its volatile players, there is no way of saying for sure. South Africa, however, is a live underdog.
