The largest sports betting site on the Internet, PinnacleSports.com currently lists reigning World champions Brazil, featuring two-time World Player of the Year Ronaldinho, as overwhelming 5/2 favorites (i.e., win $5 for every $2 bet) to win for an unprecedented sixth time. Despite uncertainty surrounding the availability of 20-year-old striker Wayne Rooney, Sven-Goran Eriksson's England side is listed with the second best odds to end their 40-year drought on the big stage at 8/1. The site also lists Germany at 8/1 to become the sixth country to win the month-long tournament on its home soil, while Argentina (8/1) and Italy (19/2) are solid contenders to capture their third and fourth World Cups, respectively.

Led by explosive striker Thierry Henry, France hopes to rebound after being held scoreless in defense of their crown in 2002 and is listed at 14/1 to win a second World Cup for Zinedine Zidane, who'll retire from the National team following the tournament. PinnacleSports.com believes several other countries have a chance at Germany 2006, including: The Netherlands (14/1), Spain (16/1), Portugal (23/1), the Czech Republic (32/1), Mexico (37/1) and Sweden (38/1). Although currently ranked fifth in the world and widely regarded as the most talented U.S. team ever, the United States remain an underdog to win their first World Cup at 40/1. The greatest long shots to survive the 64-match tournament include: Iran (384/1), Saudi Arabia (384/1), Costa Rica (384/1), Togo (384/1), Trinidad and Tobago (384/1) and Angola (402/1).
