Online betting fans have seen an excellent round-robin stage in the 2010 World Cup so far but the money rounds are still to come. After the groups stage, we’ll move into the knockout stage and from there, we move into the quarters, semis and finals.

The current format began at France in 1998, where the decision was made to include the top two teams from each four-team group in the knockout stage. In the Round of 16, we see the start of the knockout stage where the winners from each group advance along with the runners-up, but are separated.

Here are the eight quarter finalists from the 2006 World Cup:


People who are looking forward to World Cup quarter finals betting should note that while it is possible for a surprise runner-up from the group stage to make the Round of 16, it is far less likely that they will advance through to the quarter-finals.

The reality is that usually, the best teams win the groups. So if a team is a bit weaker and finishes in second place, then they will have to face a group winner in the Round of 16 before advancing to quarter-finals. That’s a tall order for some.

Looking back at the 2006 World Cup, the only surprise entrant in the quarter-finals is Ukraine, and they only made it that far because they got a gift matchup against Swittzerland in the Round of 16.

The quarter-finals are really where the pretenders are separated from the real contenders.

Overall, at this point, for World Cup betting purposes, you should be looking at group winners at this point as they have the real edge statistically.

That being said, here is a projection of the World Cup quarter-finalists for betting purposes in the 2010 World Cup:

Round of 16:

Group A – Mexico, Uruguay
Group B – Argentina, South Korea
Group C – England, USA
Group D – Germany, Ghana
Group E – Netherlands, Japan
Group F – Paraguay, Italy
Group G – Brazil, Portugal
Group H – Spain, Chile


South Korea
-They are an upstart group and are capable of surprising Mexico

-A powerhouse who is expected to be here

-The Three Lions would be very disappointed not to make it this far

-A tilt with the United States will test their mettle but they have too much firepower not to advance

-Italy will text their nerves but their youth should lead them to persevere over the reigning champions

-The team has been brought closer after the loss of their famous striker and they’ll be a surprise quarter-finalist

-No doubt that they’ll be here; Chile won’t be able to do much to stop them

-They’ll battle with underachievers Portugal but they are superior in almost all aspects of the game
