The World Cup 2104 Quarterfinal odds and matchups for said “Round of 8” or as “Elite 8” as USA bettors may be more inclined to call it are posted. On July 4 it is France vs. Germany and Brazil vs. Columbia fighting to advance to the semifinals. July 5 battles on the pitch have Argentina vs. Belgium, and the Netherlands vs. Costa Rica.

Different than most American sports picks, the majority of soccer or futbol odds are based on 90-minute regular time results, hence European punters prefer “three way” results. Such includes a tie at the end of 90-minutes an option in addition to wagering on each team.

Both Brazil at (-114) and Holland at (-222) are prohibitive favorites to win in regulation. Germany at (+130) and Argentina (+115) are the chalks to win in regulation.

Sports investors also have the option of betting on a result in which a draw after 90 minutes is a “no bet” or “push” as Americans best know. The Netherlands, generally considered to the top soccer country to never win a World Cup title is (-500) over the CONCACAF’s only remaining team Costa Rica, which is (+375) to pull off the upset in a two-way bet.

In other matches in the “draw no bet” option has Germany (-150), Brazil laying (-225), and Argentina (-175) according to OffshoreInsiders.com.

The total is posted at 2.5 in all matches, with varying totals. Brazil-Columbia Vegas betting lines as well as Netherlands-Costa Rica have 2.5 over or under at (-114). France-Germany (-140) and Holland-Costa Rica (-135) charge extra juice for the under.
