A team with big World Cup betting odds that could actually reach the knockout round is Denmark.
They are 70-1 to win it all in World Cup odds but they have a chance to advance from Group E.
World Cup betting favors the Netherlands in Group E but then it is a battle between Denmark and Cameroon to see who advances from this group. Japan is the other team in Group E and they have not been impressive. Denmark has a chance to come out of this group as the second place team behind the Netherlands.
Denmark’s 23-man squad for coach Morten Olsen will include Groningen midfielder Thomas Enevoldsen. He is just 22 years old but he played well enough to make the team. The schedule may be doing Denmark a favor in the World Cup as they open up against the Netherlands. If they can somehow get a draw they would be in prime position to advance. One key could be the health of defender Simon Kjaer. He was hurt in their win over Senegal but he still made the 23-man squad.
Denmark will be led by veteran goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen and striker Nicklas Bendtner. Also on the team is Feyenoord forward Jon Dahl Tomasson, Ajax winger Dennis Rommedahl and Liverpool defender Daniel Agger. Other players who made the squad are goalkeepers Stephan Andersen (Brondby) and Jesper Christiansen (Copenhagen), defenders Lars Jacobsen (Blackburn), William Kvist Jorgensen (Copenhagen), Per Kroldrup (Fiorentina), Patrick Mtiliga (Malaga) and Simon Busk Poulsen (AZ Alkmaar), midfielders: Mikkel Beckmann (Randers), Thomas Enevoldsen (Groningen), Christian D. Eriksen (Ajax), Jesper Gronkjaer (Copenhagen), Daniel Jensen (Werder Bremen), Martin Jorgensen (Aarhus), Thomas Kahlenberg (Wolfsburg), Christian Poulsen (Juventus), Jakob Poulsen (Aarhus) and Dennis Rommedahl (Ajax) and forward Soren Larsen (Duisburg
Denmark needs Kjaer to play in the World Cup. He probably won’t be ready for the Netherlands but he will be needed against Cameroon. That is the match that could decide whether or not Denmark advances in World Cup odds.
Any team that has a realistic chance to make the knockout round could be worth a future wager in World Cup betting. Denmark is an interesting team that has talent. They probably won’t win Group E but they are very capable of coming out and finishing second behind the Netherlands. The match between Denmark and the Netherlands takes place on Monday, June 14th. The Netherlands is a -160 favorite in that match. Denmark is +420 and the draw is +250.
