USA Confederations Cup Payout Odds Would Be Extraordinary

Confederations Cup USA Payout

The payout odds should Team USA win Sunday's 2009 Confederations Cup against mighty Brazil would be $600 for every $100 bet at Bookmaker.com.

While many believe USA is up against an impossible feat, this is the same team that beat Spain as a +900 underdog just the other day.

And most gamblers in the US are betting their team.  It's the most bet on side of any sport Sunday, including baseball.

United States scored their greatest win for almost 60 years by beating European champions Spain 2-0 on Wednesday to reach the final of the Confederations Cup.

Goals from Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey ended Spain's world record run of 15 successive victories and their 35-match unbeaten sequence, a world record streak they share with Brazil, and caused one of the biggest soccer upsets in years.  This was the best performance by the U.S. team since beating England in the 1950 World Cup.

It was also the first time the U.S. had beaten a team ranked number one in FIFA's world rankings since they defeated Brazil in 1998.

"That was a great team effort, to beat a team like Spain, it's big," coach Bob Bradley told reporters after the game.

"We played as hard as we could, everyone played their part. We will take a few hours to regroup now but we will be ready for the final. We are so excited about this."

History was against the U.S. coming into their game versus Spain and it's even more against them versus Brazil.

The United States has beaten Brazil only once in 14 tries, and that 1-0 victory came in Los Angeles in the semifinals of the 1998 CONCACAF Gold Cup, the championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean.

Then again, the U.S. doesn't have much to lose.  The pressure is really on Brazil not to be embarrassed. 

"For U.S. Soccer, this is a very special day," Bradley said. "It's the first time we're playing in a final of a world competition like this, and to play against Brazil -- everybody knows their history -- is extra special."

Can Team USA really beat Brazil? 

The gamblers think so, or at least they are hoping so.

Bookmaker.com takes all size bets so chances are there will be some massive payouts in a scenario where the U.S. wins.

"The folks at Bookmaker.com are rooting for Brazil, I can tell you this much," says Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com. 

This game begins at 2 pm EST on ESPN.  Gambling911.com urges its readers to open their online betting accounts prior to noon to ensure getting wagers in before game time.   And remember, Bookmaker.com is giving a FREE 20 PERCENT CASH BONUS on all initial deposits.
