Bet World Cup – Groups A And B To Be Decided On Tuesday


World Cup BettingIf you’re going to bet World Cup odds, you’re in for a busy Tuesday as the first round of the World Cup in South Africa comes to an end, and it all begins with Groups A and B, where there is still a lot to play for.

Mexico Uruguay Betting – Tuesday, 10:00 AM ET

Neither team is favored as a draw is rated at -130 for the Group A leaders, and both need only a draw to go through to the next round. This will be the 18th meeting for these two countries, and the Mexicans have won seven and drawn seven of them. But Uruguay’s Diego Forlan has been devastating so far, and they’ll have to stop him. Will the motivation to avoid Argentina in the next round be enough to spark one of these two to go for a win? (Sports betting pick: Draw -130)

France South Africa Betting – Tuesday, 10:00 AM ET

The French are favored at +110, but Les Bleus have had more problems off the pitch than on it with Nicolas Anelka being sent home after a 2-0 loss to Uruguay, team directors quitting, and ex-legends bashing the team. South Africa will likely be the first home team to be eliminated in the first round, but if you’re going to bet soccer online and get an upset, this is the game. South Africa has a draw and two losses in three meetings with France, but we’re taking the hosts to play for their pride. (Sports betting pick: South Africa +230)

Nigeria South Korea Betting – Tuesday, 2:30 PM ET

South Korea are favored at +145, and despite a 4-1 loss to Argentina, they’re still in it, which is more than we can say for Nigeria. The Super Eagles are out of the World Cup, and will be aiming to just earn a point. This should be an open match as South Korea needs to improve their goal difference, but Nigeria won’t roll over for them. South Korea has won two and drawn one of their three matches against Nigeria, but like South Africa, the Super Eagles are playing for national pride. (Sports betting pick: Draw +230)

Argentina Greece Betting – Tuesday, 2:30 PM ET

Many who write a soccer blog have Argentina picked to win it all, and La Albiceleste may have had the best World Cup of anyone so far. Lionel Messi has been in thrilling form, and that’s danger for the Greeks, who are tied with South Korea on three points. Greece would love to avenge a 4-0 loss to Argentina in their lone meeting, and it’s going to be interesting to see how they attack the Group B favorites. However, we’re expecting Argentina to continue their great form.

Soccer Betting pick: Argentina -170)
