Morning all! Another enthralling has passed us by, with Holland leaving it late to turn around a 0-1 scoreline to win 2-1, and Costa Rica amazingly reaching the last 8 after beating Greece 5-3 on penalties after 120 minutes resulted in a 1-1 draw, with a Costa Rica player seeing red. We had two winners – Holland Race to 2 Goals @ 6/4 and Holland Win + BTTS @ 18/5.
Today we have two massive games – France facing Nigeria and Germany taking on Algeria.
France vs Nigeria
The Nigerians put 2 passed the Argentinians the other day, so we know are capable of scoring against the biggest teams. France put 5 passed the Swiss keeper, and another three against Honduras. This should be a high scoring game! France rested some key men against Ecuador, knowing a draw was the most they would need. We fancy them -1 Goals Handicap @ 6/5. HT-FT is 11/10, a good price – we think they will get a goal in the first 30 minutes, and a 2nd before the 60th. An interesting outside bet is Benzema to score 2+ @ 19/5 – Nigeria have a mixed defence, with Omeruo being a talented individual, yet Ambrose and a few others not being so hot. Benzi could have a field day given the right service!
Top Tip – France -1 Goal @ 6/5
Germany vs Algeria
This could define Germany’s World Cup – they have been far from impressive so far, struggling against Ghana and USA after hammering Portugal – but a confident win here would show what they have. Algeria will not just lie down and take a beating, they will be up for it. We think Algeria will nick a goal, but lose. BTTS + Germany is 2/1. We also think Germany will score 3, Race to 3 is currently 13/10. Our final tip is Germany Win Both Halves @ 6/4 – I think it will end 3 or 4-1, with the Germans scoring 2 in each half.
Top Tip – Germany Race to 3 Goals @ 13/10
Double of the Day:
- Germany Race to 3 Goals + France -1 Goal Handicap – 4.06/1
Best of luck!
