World Cup Knockouts Spark Betting Frenzy

It's do or die as the World Cup enters its knockout stages, not only for the players, but for the online betting public too...

The South African winter is hotting up as the second round matches of World Cup 2010 get underway. Yes, it's knockout time and there's nowhere to hide. Every moment of every game counts, and there must be an outright winner at the end. But it's not just the players on the pitch who are feeling the heat...

Feeling the pressure

Betting customers from around the world are working themselves into a frenzy over the 200‑plus markets available for the World Cup knockouts at William Hill's online sportsbook. In fact, many of those placing wagers don't even have a national team in the competition.

The wide range of betting categories for each match means that every twist of turn of play has the potential to make you a World Cup winner. You can wager on markets such as:

  • final score
  • goal scorers on each team
  • match to go to penalties
  • number of red cards per game
  • goal awarded after consultation with the linesman

With betting opportunities like this you can throw your support behind the team of your choice or simply try to make some winnings on the statistics - either way, you too can feel the pressure on the pitch from the comfort of your home!

Stay Up To Date

William Hill's live online scores table will help you to keep abreast of the latest match developments and make good betting decisions.
