We are now down to the business end of the World Cup. The round of 16 is upon us, but we are greeted with four fairly weak teams.
It looks as though one half of the draw has a lot of big teams, while the side of the draw that tonight’s matches are in, are less likely to produce a World Cup Winner.
Uruguay finished top of a tough group that included France, South Africa and Mexico. They struggled during their qualifying campaign but have so far produced the goods in this tournament.
Up front Diego Forlan and Suarez are proving tough to handle. If they can fire on all cylinders tonight, I can’t see South Korea matching them.
The South Koreans have qualified for the round of 16 for the first time on foreign soil. They did well to progress this far but their run will come to an end tonight.
The battle hardened Uruguayans will prove too tough to handle in this one.
Uruguay Vs South Korean Betting and Odds
South Korea: $2.80
For me, both of these teams were disappointing in their groups and don’t deserve to be there. It took the USA until injury time of the final match to actually win a match.
Ghana are worse in my opinion. They only won against Serbia because of a penalty from a handball, and drew with Australia because of a sending off. They have been defending well, but are having terrible trouble in front of goal.
USA Vs Ghana Betting and Odds
I’m leaning towards USA in this one but I won’ be betting. Both teams aren’t in good form and in truth, either of them can win comfortably on their day.
Get on Uruguay in the match at midnight tonight. They are one of the form teams of the 2010 World Cup and have the experience and attacking quality to win this match.
$1.85 at Sportingbet is good value.
