Who is going to hold the World Cup?   by Jerry Grant

"2007" is again a year for the ninth edition of the World Cup Cricket Tournament, and all the sixteen Nations are holding its breath. But the question often arises that who is going to hold the Cup? All the sixteen teams are full of passion and dedication and as the day is coming closer and closer, the passion is growing more rapidly.

The 16 Nations that are participating in the ICC World Cup 2007 Tournament include: India, Pakistan, England, Sri Lanka, West Indies, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Zimbabwe Bangladesh, Kenya, Netherlands, Scotland, Bermuda, Ireland, Canada. The top nine Nations hold a very good record. This can be viewed by their ranking from ICC (International Cricket Council). http://www.icc-cricket.com/odi/

Amongst top ten, South Africa hold the first rank with 4595 points. The team has played 36 matches and has rated 128 in the countdown. The second rank is occupied by Australia with 5753 points. The tremendous victory twice in the World Cup has rated Australia on 125 in 46 matches. New Zealand holds the third position with 4172 points in 37 matches. ICC has ranked the Nation with 113 ratings. Next comes the Pakistan. ICC has ranked it on the fourth position with 3780 points. The country has played 34 matches and has received 111 rating. India has been ranked on the fifth position, with 5243 points. From point wise the nation is superior to Pakistan and has played more matches than Pakistan but it has been ranked fifth by its 109 ratings.

On sixth position lies Sri Lanka with 4733 points. The Country has played 44 matches and has received 108 rating. England holds the seventh rank with 3806 points. The team has played 36 matches and has rated 106 in the countdown. West Indies, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe lies on eighth, ninth and tenth position. In this countdown West Indies holds101 rating with 3956 points, Bangladesh holds 42 rating with 1454 points and Zimbabwe hold 22 rating with 755 points.

Form the above-mentioned ranking, we find that South Africa holds the top position, but the chances of winning the Cup is much more favorable for Australia. As the Country has lifted the cup from last two editions of the World Cup and is still on the verge of hat trick. So, defiantly the Country will not hold any space to lose the Cup.

Thus, the aforesaid ranking and Australian situation states some indication and prediction as to who is going to hold the Cup. But the previous performance of the top 10-ranked team takes us in a dilemmatic situation, where the judgment becomes more complicated and intricate. However, the prospects of World Cup are under dilemmatic situation but the passion and popularity is still the same among all sixteen nations.

Hence, we will have to wait and watch the World Cup!

Football World Cup Betting Is An Art   by Vickram Chandrer

Football, or soccer, as it is known in the United States, is one of the most popular games in the world. It is widely considered as a universal sport because almost every nation has a football team.

Apart from international matches, county, club and league games are also being played. Some of the popular leagues are the English Premier League, Champions League and the like. However, the biggest event is the Football World Cup, for fans and punters alike. The World Cup takes place every four years, with the next one in South Africa in 2010. This World Cup has already seen a lot of bets and money being put on different teams. If you want to be one of those successful punters, you will have to start from scratch.

First, you will have to find a good betting agency, exchange or club. You also have to make sure that you know the teams, groups and schedule very well. Most people who bet on World Cup football matches seem to be influenced by previous World Cup winning teams. This is not a very good way to predict the winner. You should not directly enter the betting arena with a very large sum of money. You should ask the clubs for a list of teams, with player statistics, and recent form. If the team has been quite consistent, without too many losses and unconvincing wins, you can put your money on that team.

If you want to put your money on the host team, you have to be careful. Most of the host teams do not perform well under pressure from the fans. However, this is not a significant indicator. You can bet, not only on the team winning the match, but also on the score or the goal difference between the two teams. You should also keep an eye on the injury list because some teams may rely on one or two players only, and if these players are injured, that team may not have a good chance of winning. You also have to do a bit of research on the form of the players in the domestic leagues. If you don't want to lose your money, do not bet on your favourite team if it has little chance of winning. You should not let fan emotions mix with betting.

You can also bet on a player scoring a specific number of goals. Before you bet on the outcome of a game, you should check the results of previous encounters between the two teams. The team's performance relies on the coach's efficiency also. You should therefore select a team that has a good coach as well. You can also bet online. However, you should ascertain whether the online betting website is recognised by the establishment.

On the betting websites, you can view the latest odds against each and every team. Betting is a wonderful way of earning money, if you can do it properly. Do not squander your money on bets that are not logical or sensible.
