2006 World Cup BettingThe 2006 World Cup is being hosted by Germany for the first time since 1974, and in so doing Germany becomes only the fourth country to host the event on two occasions, the others being Mexico, Italy and France. The year 1974's triumphant home team skipper Franz Beckenbauer is now President of the Germany 2006 Organizing Committee, and is no doubt hopeful of his country repeating their previous host nation success. The World Cup is held every four years and the 2006 World Cup will be held in eight different German cities between June 9th and July 9th.
The draw for the final phase takes place on December 9th 2005 and is expected to be broadcast to 145 countries, so expect interest in the actual games to be huge. If you wish to speculate on Germany or any other team's chances, one of the easiest ways is via online betting. There are a wide range of betting opportunities covering all aspects of the game, from half time scores, first to score, final scores, group winners, overall winners, leading goal scorer and literally hundreds of other permutations. Sitting at home with the widescreen TV, some mates, some suitable refreshments and a handy PC linked to online betting could well spice up the viewing experience and could be the recipe for a summer of contentment in 2006.

The prospects for 2006 World Cup betting have been enlivened by the enlarging of the competition from just 16 countries in the 1974 finals to the 32 that will compete in eight different venues this time representing the reunified Germany.

The standard of football in Africa is now very high with many of their top players represented in the world's top football leagues; therefore expect a lot of 2006 World Cup Betting to follow what may be good odds for these nations.
Australia has qualified for final stages for the first time since 1974, to the delight of their large following. The USA and Mexico are hoping for good support, and of course the South American contingent will have fanatical support. There is also likely to be lots of speculation and interest, especially among home fans, with regards Asian teams from Japan, Iran, Korea, and Saudi Arabia who ensure that the 2006 World Cup really does have world wide interest and offers a whole host of World Cup online betting prospects.
