Spain (+187)

Spain got a hard-fought 1-0 win over Paraguay in the quarterfinals. That comes on the heels of a 1-0 win over Portugal in the Round of 16.

The offense needs a boost to beat Germany. David Villa has five of the team’s six goals, and more balanced is needed to advance.

Spain is a slight +170 underdog to Germany (+145) on Wednesday. That makes it surprising that Spain is the small favorite to win the whole thing.

Germany (+200)

No team is hotter than Germany right now. They had a 4-1 win over England in the Round of 16, and topped it off with a 4-0 win over Argentina last game. Certainly no one expected the latter outcome as Argentina was a small favorite.

Thomas Muller got a goal in the third minute and three more were added in the second half (two by Miroslav Klose). Muller and Klose both have four tourney goals, but plenty of other guys can beat Spain as well.

Netherlands (+200)

Netherlands has been known as World Cup underachievers, but that’s far from the case this year. A stunning 2-1 win over Brazil in the quarterfinals knocked out the tourney favorite.

They even came back from a 1-0 deficit after a Wesley Sneijder header in the 68th minute put them in the lead for good. Netherlands now gets a big break by getting Uruguay in the semifinals. Uruguay is a quality team, but not the caliber of Germany or Spain.

Netherlands is a big -200 favorite over Uruguay on Tuesday (+600).

Uruguay (+1200)

Uruguay is the only South American team remaining after three lost in the quarterfinals. Paraguay was expected to lose to Spain, but the Argentina and Brazil defeats have shocked the continent.

Uruguay will have to battle Netherlands without striker Luis Suarez (three goals scored). He got a red card for a handball late in the Ghana contest (won in a shootout).

Diego Forlan is having a great tournament with the equalizer last game and three total goals. However, losing Suarez really hurts their chances.
