2014 World Cup Odds: U.S. Faces Uphill Battle


CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

BRAZIL (CBSDFW.COM) –– The U.S. Men’s National Team faces long odds to win the 2014 World Cup. In fact, head coach Jurgen Klinsmann reiterated on Wednesday that it’s unrealistic to expect the team to win the title.

But exactly what odds do the Americans face in winning the country’s first World Cup? And will they even advance out of the “group of death”?

Recent odds (courtesy of Bovada) suggest that the US is an overwhelming underdog to advance out of Group G, which features favorites Germany and Portugal, as well as US-nemesis Ghana.

Oddsmakers give the US a 100/1 chance of making a miracle run to and winning the finals in Brazil. By comparison, the host country is a 3/1 favorite, while neighboring Mexico’s odds are at 125/1.

Tesla And Panasonic Ink Battery Deal

Business & Money

Tesla has teamed up with Panasonic in order to boost battery production for a greater number of electric cars coming off the production line.

Company representatives stated that the battery cells, designed for high performance and longevity, are crucial if the Model S sedan is to live up to its advertised 265-mile range, Wall Street Journal reports.

The Model S has drawn attention recently for two accidents resulting in fires in the batteries, which have been particularly hard to put out.

Except for the Model S, the new batteries will be used in the performance SUV Model X, which is expected to reach production lines by the end of 2014.
