Spain is followed by Brazil (9-2), England (11-2) and Argentina (7-1). The United States is 40-1 to win the cup. In all, 32 teams will be competing for soccer’s greatest prize.
Cantor Gaming, the first company to offer In-Running Wagering in Las Vegas, continues to set the standard in the sports betting world with the unique opportunity and advantages of Asian Handicap betting. Wagers can be made on betting stations and on eDeck, Cantor’s proprietary mobile gaming device for sports wagers and other casino games.
“Asian Handicap Betting is by far the most popular way to wager on soccer throughout the world, and we are excited to introduce it to real-time sports betting in Las Vegas,” said Mike Colbert, race and sports book director at the M Resort. “It helps create two bets with an even chance of outcome, thus making your chance of winning more equal.” This style of wagering for soccer is extremely popular in the Far East and Mr. Colbert expects it to gain devotees in Las Vegas.
