World Cup Bet Of The Day – Day 3


Running total: – 2 units

So for the second day running the suggested bet didn’t quite come off, with England failing to breach the USA in the second half having gone in level at half time. England are notorious slow starters in World Cups (just five opening wins from 13) so the final 1-1 scoreline was not surprising. I had a feeling I should have gone for under 2.5 goals.

Today sees Slovenia v Algeria, Serbia v Ghana and Germany v Australia in the evening match. There are clear favourites in all three games negating any value on a straight victory. I do like Serbia to win at just over evens (6/5 or 11/10 depending who you bet with) but it’s difficult to know how much Ghana will miss Essien’s presence.

Instead I’m going to try a pick a goalscorer in the evening game. I think Germany should beat Australia without too much trouble – I don’t see where the goals are in the Aussie side once you stop Tim Cahill or a past it Harry Kewell.

I imagine Germany will be starting with Miroslav Klose up front. He already has ten goals over two World Cups and will be looking to score in his third tournament. Australia are quite a physical side and his aerial presence will be important to Germany finding a foothold in the game.

With Ballack out injured I suspect Germany’s play will focus more on getting it out wide to the wingers Schweinsteger and Trochowski who can provide crosses for Klose. I reckon it’s risky to be on him as first goalscorer so let’s go with him scoring anytime at just over evens.

Bet of the day:

Miroslav Klose to score anytime vs Australia @ 11/5
