World Cup Odds Update: No Neymar is Bad News For Brazil

Germany and Argentina share new top chalk status

Agentina still has Messi and Germany still has Thomas Müller – Brazil will be without Neymar for the rest of the tournament. It all means that there’s been a shakeup of the betting board at SportsInteraction. Ahead of their semifinal matches, versus Brazil and the Netherlands respectively, Germany and Argentina have now been posted as co-favorites to become World Champions. While we agree that Messi & Crew are deserving of their top chalk status – we are much less than 100% sold on the ‘like watching paint dry” German squad.

Brazil and Netherlands enter World Cup semifinals as underdogs

A largely inadvertent knee to the back has turned into a punch in the face for Brazilian soccer fans and it has sent shock waves across the World Cup. After Brazil opened the tournament as top Championship favorites, and then retained their chalk status heading into the knock-out round, losing Neymar has pushed the Green and Gold down to third on the betting board. Following a lackluster penalty kick victory over Costa Rica in quarterfinal play, the Netherlands squad rounds out the top four. We still like Argentina as the Champions.

MLB Bonus Bet: Since we have Argentina as World Cup Champions with a +408 pre-tournament price, we’ll stay away from these lines and look to action from Major League Baseball for today’s free pick. We like the white-hot Los Angeles Angels to trump the ice-cold Toronto Blue Jays with a 500 unit money line wager.
