The 2014 World Cup live stream and TV schedule continues today with three games on the docket including a huge match-up for Spain when they square off against Chile. If Spain wants to repeat as World Cup champions, they cannot have a repeat of their last performance. Today's World Cup live streaming action will be crucial for both teams if they want to be in the finals this July.
According to an Independent report on June 17, Spain was embarrassed by the Netherlands in their last outing and cannot afford another loss. Team Spain looked like anything but a team that could repeat as World Cup champions after a 5-1 defeat last Friday.
Manager Vicente Del Bosque hopes his teams bad play is behind them as they get ready to face a very tough Chile team. To show how bad the 5-1 loss was, consider this - no defending champion team in its history of play at the World Cup has ever lost by a four-goal margin. Add to that the last time Spain gave up more than five goals in a match was back in 1950 against Brazil when they were defeated 6-1.
Fans should see a different Spain team this afternoon when they take on Chile, but a win is far from a guarantee against the tough Chile squad. Las Vegas odds makers expect Spain to bounce back in today's game vs. Chile as they are listed as the favorite.
Spain is listed at -1 (-115) with the over/under number posted at 2.5. You can also wager on Spain at even (meaning they wouldn't be minus one goal) but that money line is set at -200, meaning you have to wager $200 to win $100.
Other games on today's schedule include Cameroon taking on Croatia and Australia vs. Netherlands. Fans will be able to catch all three of today's games live here in the US on the ESPN nationally and streaming live online through your PC, tablets and smart phones via Watch ESPN, ESPN3, and ESPN Deportes.
