Well. What a start to the World Cup, although betting has been very tough!
Some of our ante posts went down the drain immediately, with Germany and Brazil among numerous of the big boys failing to win and a couple of shocks with Japan and Iran winning.
In our first acca – Uruguay messed it up from the start, only scoring one when they should have had at least 2-3…while Colombia lost after a 3rd minute red card, Brazil failed to score 2 goals and France laboured to a 2-1 win – not enough for the -1 handicap.
Only Belgium + Over 2.5 Goals and Croatia Win obliged, so for this one I’m going with just a 4-Fold but it pays 45/1:
Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia: Uruguay -2 Goal Handicap @ 13/10 (Wednesday, 1600 KO)
Portugal vs Morocco: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 2/1 (Wednesday, 1300 KO)
South Korea vs Mexico: Mexico -1 Goal Handicap @ 8/5 (Saturday, 1600 KO)
Argentina vs Croatia: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 8/5 (Thursday, 1900 KO)
Real potential here. I think Uruguay have got their bad game out of their system…Suarez looked awful, but Cavani was terrific. They got better as the game wore on, and with the Saudi’s conceding 5 to an average Russia side, this could be ugly.
Portugal-Morocco is also one I feel there could be goals galore. Morocco need something from this game in order to qualify, and with Portugal conceding 3 in the first game (as well as scoring 3) I feel it could be a great game.
Mexico played terrifically against Germany, and against a Korea side that looked dreadful against Sweden – I think they could rack up a few and win well.
Lastly, Argentina vs Croatia. Argentina are under serious pressure to win this otherwise they could find themselves on the verge of being out. Croatia have a cracking squad, and with a win under their belt this is the opportunity to win the group…and avoid a potential tie with France, who should win Group C.
