I will be doing my World Cup predictions and previews for every game.. much like I did for the NBA and NHL playoffs that saw me accrue some winnings. The World Cup is the best tournament in the World, even if it is run by a rigged entity. My other favorite tournament, the NCAA basketball tournament, is also run by a rigged entity, hmmmmm. Can I get a stable trustworthy institution?
Russia – Saudi Arabia under 2, 2.5 for 1 unit. Two lowest ranked teams in the whole tournament.. so I do not expect a lot of firepower.
Russia – Saudi Arabia over 0.5, 1 (first half) for 4 units at -130. There has been a goal scored in the first half of Saudi Arabia’s last 9 games.
Russia at -240 for 2 units. I think Russia wins in a tight one. I just can’t see a lot of goals being scored in this one. Saudi Arabia has been awful on the road and I expect that to continue here.
