World Cup Online Betting Research Important

Published Monday, May 03, 2010 -

The World Cup of soccer will start in a little while and the challenge for the solid gold trophy will certainly see millions of dollars changing hands on gambling sites around the world. We are all keeping a close watch on the rankings and the various methods used to make the comparisons and choices allowing for wise betting. The sorting out of all the information available online and in the papers could be a full time job for serious punters who have the itch to gamble during the month long soccer tournament. The FIFA ranking system is a point system with points being awarded based on the results of FIFA recognised international matches. Under the existing system, rankings are based on a team's performance over the last four years, with more recent results and more significant matches being more heavily weighted to help reflect the current competitive state of a team. Right now Brazil is on top of this ranking system with Spain and Portugal coming in close behind. Other ranking comparison systems are available to the potential bettor for guidance such as Statto which has ratings that tend to go against the norm but can be useful as their other soccer ratings are widely used by punters in Britain, so these ratings do have some merit. ESPN has produced a set of ratings (SPI) that reviews the latest games and predicts some possible possibilities. Even Castrol has individual player ratings that can prove useful for the avid bettor looking at every angle. As the games approach getting all of the predictions and ratings sorted out for their relative value can be a lot fun that could pay off in wise wagers that give the average gambler a chance to win. The World Cup is being watched closely by officials for any tampering in any aspect of the games assuring bets that are placed are legitimate.
