Argentina, France and Colombia are among the countries which oddsmakers feel came out on the good side of Friday's FIFA World Cup draw.

According to bodog.net, Argentina's odds improved from 6-1 to 5-1 after they were grouped in with Bosnia & Herzegovina, Iran and Nigeria.

France jumped from 25-1 to 18-1 after it was learned they would be playing Group E with Switzerland, Ecuador and Honduras.

Colombia is now a 20-1 favourite to win the World Cup after being put into a group with Greece, Ivory Coast, Japan. Before the draw, they were listed at 22-1.

Oddsmakers also downgraded some countries' chances after the draw, including powerhouses like Germany and the defending champions from Spain.

Germany dipped slightly from 5-1 to 11-2 as a result of their tough draw with Portugal, Ghana and the United States.

Spain, which must play the Netherlands in their first match, also dropped from 13-2 to 7-1. The Netherlands also face longer odds, going from 25-1 to 20-1.

Other countries that have longer odds based on the draw include England, Italy and Portugal.

Host Brazil remains the favourite at 3-1.
