The 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup is underway in Germany with the top 16 female soccer countries battling it out for the ultimate prize. Betting on the 2011 Women’s World Cup is available at most online sportsbooks, and this may be one of the rare times when lines are available for wagering on Women’s soccer. Every major bookie is offering lines, but certain books are offering better lines with less juice and this article will outline the best places to bet on the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Top 2 Women’s World Cup Sportsbooks
1. 5Dimes – This online sportsbook is known for offering the odds with the least juice on the vast majority of sports. This includes the 2011 FIFA World Cup. 5Dimes also accepts bettors from around the world.
2. Bookmaker.com – This bookie is probably the most trustworthy and well respected sportsbook online. Looking at their odds for the World Cup the lines look very fair and the odds are actually quite different from 5Dimes so it is likely smart to check out the odds for both sportsbooks before placing your wagers.
A Look At The Teams
Germany is the host of the event and they are huge favourites to win the tournament. Coming into this years World Cup, Germany was more than a 1/1 favourite to win the title (expected to win more than 50% of the time). Brazil and USA were the next favourites with 5/1 odds and after these three teams there is a significant drop to 12/1 odds for the fourth and fifth ranked teams. The two African representatives, Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea, were not given great chances with 150/1 and 500/1 odds respectively.
Team Canada came in with 30/1 odds, and the team is looking to improve on their 9th place finish from 2007. They would also like to have a strong result heading into 2015 when Canada hosts the event. Canada is in Germany’s group, and they will face a strong competition from France in hopes of making it out of the group. This deciding game will be taking place on June 28th and should determine which nation comes second in Group A.
The tournament will be very exciting and although it will likely go under the radar compared to the Men’s version of the World Cup, once it gets down to the final few games you can expect country pride to play a big part and the results to matter to both men and women around the globe.
