As two European seeded teams, the odds for drawing either Germany or Spain are the same. Surely whoever does draw either won't be celebrating. Here are William Hill's odds.
Although no European team has ever won a World Cup in the Western Hemisphere, Germany and Spain are still two front runners to win the tournament next year. Most teams are desperate to avoid host Brazil in the draw, but it certainly will be no prize to for anyone to land Europe's top two nations.
Chile or Ecuador will land one of the four seeded European teams (Germany, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland), and as such the Andean region teams are listed at 3.75 to land with one of the juggernauts (separate bets).
The rest of pot C has the five African nations in it. Algeria, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Ghana are listed at 9.50 to be plucked with either powerhouse.
Since there are a maximum of two European teams allowed per group, it will be interesting to see which UEFA country lands with Germany or Spain. In pots B and D, Croatia, England, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Portugal, Italy, Greece, France, Holland, and Russia are all listed at 8.50. An Italy-Germany matchup would make every fan salivate, as would a rematch of the other Euro 2012 semifinal betwen Spain and Portugal.
Pot A features the Asian and North American nations. Australia was decimated 4-0 in the last World Cup when it was drawn with Germany, and it will surely wish to avoid either seed this time around. Along with Costa Rica, Iran, Mexico, the USA, Japan, South Korea, and Honduras, the Socceroos can be taken at 8.50 to be drawn with Spain or Germany.
