  • SPREAD: Switzerland -0.5 (-140)
  • OVER/UNDER: 2.5 goals (+125 over or -150 under)
  • MONEY LINE: Switzerland (-135), Cameroon (+425) Draw (+265)

Best Bet: 

Switzerland comes into the World Cup on a match wins streak with two of those coming against top-10 FIFA-ranked nations while Cameroon enters with four winless international outings, including 1-1 draws against both Jamaica and Panama. Given that recent form, I think Switzerland -0.5 (-140) is a solid bet, but I also like the over on 2.5 goals (+125). 

Uruguay vs South Korea

  • SPREAD: Uruguay -0.5 (-145) South Korea +0.5 (+115)
  • OVER/UNDER: 2.5 goals (+135 over or -165 under)
  • MONEY LINE: Uruguay (-140), South Korea (+450) Draw (+260)

Best Bet: 

These are two experienced countries that likely won’t be impacted by the big stage. Uruguay is still led by Luis Suarez, who is more often remembered for his on-field antics and not the 68 international goals he’s scored for his country. However, South Korea also has talented players on their roster, led by Son Heung-min, so I expected this to be a pretty even watch with both teams scoring a goal (+110)

 

Portugal vs Ghana

  • Date: Thursday, November 24th
  • Time: 11 a.m. ET
  • Channel: FOX

Match Details

Portugal   Ghana
9th  FIFA Ranking 61st

7 Previous World Cup Appearances 3
3rd place (1966) Best Finish Quarterfinals (2010)

  • SPREAD: Portugal -1.5 (+120), Ghana -1.5 (-145)
  • OVER/UNDER: 2.5 goals (-105 over or -115 under)
  • MONEY LINE: Portugal (-900), Ghana (+800) Draw (+380)

Best Bet:

Portugal comes into this match as clear favorites, but they will be without injured forward Diogo Jota and winger Pedro Neto, which are two important losses for the team; however, Ghana also lost their goalkeeper Joe Wollacott to injury in a friendly right before the World Cup. Even given that, Portugal hasn’t shown great offensive form of late, so I think the safest bet here may be to take under 2.5 goals (-115). 

 

Brazil vs Serbia

  • Date: Thursday, November 24th
  • Time: 2 p.m. ET
  • Channel: FOX

Match Details

Brazil   Serbia
1st  FIFA Ranking 21st

Champions (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002) Best Finish Semi-finals (1930, 1962)

  • SPREAD: Brazil -1.5 (+140), Serbia +1.5 (-175)
  • OVER/UNDER: 2.5 goals (-135 over or +110 under)
  • MONEY LINE: Brazil (-200), Serbia (+550) Draw (+350)

Best Bet:

Brazil is the clear favorite here, but we saw in that Argentina game that being an oddsmakers favorite doesn’t really matter once the games start. This game will feature two of the premier strikers in the tournament in Brazil’s Neymar and Serbian forward Aleksandar Mitrovic. Mitrovic has been battling a foot injury, so Serbia will obviously hope he can play to his potential for the full match, but I still think this Brazil team is a bit too strong, so I’ll take Brazil -1.5 (+140).
