World Cup odds on Wednesday favor Serbia as they look to defeat Australia and reach the round of 16.
Australia also has a chance to make the knockout round if they win in World Cup betting and Ghana upsets Germany. This match between Serbia and Australia can be seen on ESPN 2 while the match between Ghana and Germany is on ESPN.
World Cup odds on this Group D match point to Serbia but Australia is not without a chance. Australia will get midfielder Tim Cahill back for this match although they will miss Harry Kewell who got a red card last time out against Ghana. Australia was able to get a 1-1 draw with Ghana last time out but it probably wasn’t enough to get them through to the next round. Even if they upset Serbia they would need Germany to lose to Ghana and that seems unlikely.
Australia started poorly in World Cup betting as they were blown out by Germany 4-0. They got the draw against Ghana but now they must beat Serbia and hope that Germany loses to Ghana. And Australia will have to win without their top striker in Kewell. Australia really wants to win this match against Serbia even if it does not get them through to the next round. It won’t be easy against a solid Serbian team, especially without Kewell and defender Craig Moore, two of their top players.
Germany was expected to win Group D but after their loss to Serbia in World Cup odds that is no longer a given. Germany can still advance and win Group D with a win over Ghana but they could be out if they lose. It is hard to know what to expect from Ghana in that match. They have a win and a draw in their two matches for four points. That leads Group D while Germany and Serbia each have a win and a loss for three points each. Australia has one point with their draw. Since these matches on Wednesday in World Cup odds are played at the same time, anything is possible. Serbia is in control of their own destiny though while Australia needs to win and get some help in the other match.
