Having our main operation located in both Costa Rica and Panama for the last nine years, Legendz Sports realizes the value, both patriotic and economic, that soccer has on the Latin American countries. No sport, and specifically the World Cup, comes close to impacting people on a global level as this event does

Desperate Housewives from around the world have already marked the date on their calendars while sports enthusiasts from every corner of the planet prepare for the soccer World Cup 2006. Come June 9, 2006, most women will lose their men to the soccer World Cup for an entire month.

Betting on the soccer World Cup has become more and more popular in the past years. This year more sportsbooks than ever before will offer a variety of odds and props on the FIFA World Cup 2006.

"The World Cup is not only the world's most popular sporting event, but is also unquestionably the most bet sporting event globally, easily surpassing the totals of the Super Bowl and March Madness combined," said Simon Noble of PinnacleSports.com to The Online Wire.com in this exclusive interview.

"Having our main operation located in both Costa Rica and Panama for the last nine years, Legendz Sports realizes the value, both patriotic and economic, that soccer has on the Latin American countries. No sport, and specifically the World Cup, comes close to impacting people on a global level as this event does," said Luke King of Legendz Sports to TheOnlineWire.com.

Latin America, especially Costa Rica, will literally shut down on June 9th. The opening game will oppose an all-time favorite, Germany, against Costa Rica. The tiny Central American Country is expected to have a tough life from get go, at least according to bookmakers odds. BetCRIS.com odds for Costa Rica to win the opening game are currently set at +850, +25,000 to win the World Cup.

"Having our offices located in Costa Rica since 1991, it's incredible to feel the magnitude of energy the World Cup creates in Latin America. However, we've seen exponential growth in the number of North American bettors interested in the World Cup," said Scott Martin of BetCRIS to TheOnlineWire.com.

While bets already started to flow in, odds and lines on the World Cup began to move, providing punters with indications of the public’s favorites.

"Although Brazil is the deserved favorite, the tournament is still wide open. Greece won the European Championship even though they were long, long odds at the beginning (in 2004)," said Xavier Read of Canbet to TheOnlineWire.com.

"Bettors must carefully research sports books they will wager with,” said Roberto Castiglioni, founder of TheOnlineWire.com. “In the ever changing landscape of the gaming industry, opting to bet with online leaders will make punters sweat the games, not the payout.”
