New tactic if you want to win money. I suggest a bet, you bet on the opposite. You’ll soon find you’ll be quids in. Unfortunately there weren’t odds on Luis Suarez to cheat anytime and while playing well (in many respects…) he didn’t get a goal to win our bet.
I was gutted not to have put money on Holland. All week I’ve been thinking that their 7/2 price to beat Brazil was too high but never went through with it.
Spain should beat Paraguay if you fancy some free money but 1/2 is very skinny. Maybe go with David Villa scoring at evens instead.
The big game is the afternoon clash between Argentina and Germany. Argentina are favourites but this is very tough to call in my opinion. It’s tempting to place a small side bet on Germany if they’re as high as 5/2 but I think the value lies in looking at the goals market.
This should be quite an open, attacking game with both teams playing expansive, creative football. Ozil and Messi have been two of the best players so far this tournament and while the latter has yet to score, his all round play has been excellent. Germany have nine goals so far while Argentina have ten which gives hope to an entertaining game. I’m usually one to go for over 2.5 goals but let’s be ambitious and try over 3.5 goals.
Bet of the day:
Germany vs Argentina to have over 3.5 goals @ 13/5.
