Brazil has been made a 3-1 favorite to win the 2014 World Cup it will be hosting.

The Brazilians remain at the same odds after Friday's draw as they held going into it.

Argentina is next at 9-2, barely up from 5-1 odds, according to the professional oddsmakers Keith Glantz and Russell Culver. Germany is 5-1, followed by defending champion Spain at 7-1.

The United States, placed in a difficult group with Germany, Portugal (30-1) and Ghana (175-1) for the first round, dropped from 60-1 to 150-1.
