Brazil 3-1 favorite, U.S. rises to 150-1 at World Cup

Brazil was made a 3-1 favorite to win the 2014 World Cup it will be hosting. The Brazilians remained at the same odds after Friday’s draw as they held going into it. Argentina was next at 9-2, followed by Germany at 5-1 and defending champion Spain at 7-1 according to professional oddsmakers. The odds for the United States, placed with Germany, Portugal (30-1) and Ghana (175-1) for the first round, rose from 60-1 to 150-1. “We’re excited,” U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard said. “We’re looking forward to the challenge and we think we’re a good team.” Midfielder Clint Dempsey added, “I don’t look at it like we’re the underdog … we can get out of the group.” – AP
