Yesterday we saw the first of the final round of group games – Spain beat the Aussies 3-0 (We had wins of 11/10, 21/20 and 9/2 on that one), Holland beat Chile 2-0 to win the group, Brazil won 4-1 against Cameroon (Wins of 4/7, 4/5 and 21/20) and then Croatia were defeated by Mexico (BTTS + Over 2.5 win @ 29/20).
Today brings games from Group C and D – so we will see the following games:
Costa Rica vs England
This could be an interesting one – Costa Rica will want to win the group (was 50/1 pre-World Cup!) and England will want to finish with a win, so they will not go down as the worst team ever in English history! BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals is a good start @ 6/5, Costa Rica Over 0.5 1st Half Goals is an amazing price @ 13/8, and even England Score Both Halves is 2/1. We think it will be a game full of goals – Over 3.5 Goals is currently 9/4!
Top Tip – Costa Rica Over 0.5 Goals in 1st Half – 13/8
Italy vs Uruguay
I think this will be the opposite of the England game. Very close, cagey game with one goal settling it. The theme of the World Cup so far is low scoring 1st half and high scoring 2nd half, so for this reason we like Under 0.5 Goals in 1st Half @ 7/4, and Under 1.5 Match Goals @ 12/5. Race to 2 Goals (Neither Team) is a good one @ 5/4 and BTNTS + Under 2.5 is brilliant value @ 6/5.
Top Tip – Under 1.5 Match Goals @ 12/5
Colombia vs Japan
Colombia are an amazing 11/8 to beat an average looking Japan, who could not break down a 10 man Greece. That is a safe bet I would think, and even Race to 2 is 7/4. An outside shot is BTNTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 17/2.
James Rodriguez Anytime + Colombia Win – 7/2
Top Tip – Colombia Race to 2 Goals @ 7/4
Ivory Coast vs Greece
Ivory Coast need at least a point to guarantee a place in the last 16, and should beat a poor Greek team. 11/10 is a good enough price just for the win, and Win to Nil is an extraordinary price @ 21/10. Double Result (HT/FT) is 9/4 – a personal favourite of mine. The final great price in the markets on this match is Ivory Coast Race to 2 – 11/8. Can’t see Greece scoring, and can see the Ivorians scoring 2 goals.
Top Tip – Ivory Coast Race to 2 Goals @ 11/8
So – our 4 Fold Acca of the Day is as follows:
- Costa Rica Over 1.5 1st Half Goals/Italy-Uru Under 1.5 Goals/Colombia Race to 2 Goals/Ivory Coast Race to 2 Goals – 58/1
Best of luck,
