Despite Germany's recent dominance, Spain is still the favorite to take home the title, according to bodog.com.

The Spanish enter tomorrow's game as 2-to-1 favorites to go all the way. Germany and the Netherlands are both coming in at 11-to-5, while Uruguay is the long shot at 10-to-1.

As for the World Cup's Golden Boot winner, Spain's scoring machine David Villa is the obvious favorite (1-to-2) as he enters the final two games with five goals. Miroslav Klose is second (4/1), followed by Wesley Sneijder (9/1) and Thomas Muller (14/1).

The semifinals begin today when Uruguay takes on the Netherlands at 2:30 p.m. Uruguay, South America's lone team left, will be without left back Jorge Fucile (yellow cards) and striker Luis Suarez, who was red carded in the last match for his infamous hand ball on the goal line. 

Heavyweights Germany and Spain, which is hoping for its first World Cup title, take the field Wednesday.
