World Cup June 30th

5-5-1 on the World Cup up 2.29 units

Round of 16! Sweet Sixteen!

France to advance at -152 for 3 units. This game is in Kazan, which is a scenic city right on the Volga river. Argentina’s defense has just been too shaky in group play for me to take them here. France has a better defense, goalkeeper, midfield…. but they don’t have Messi obviously. Griezmann and Mbappe are no slouches either. Kante did well against Messi when Chelsea played against Barcelona and I expect a similar tracking approach here. This is the toughest test for both teams so far, but I think France takes it.

France – Argentina over 2 for 4 units at -108. Argentina does not have a great defense and they have Messi.

Portugal to advance at -105 for 2 units. Ronaldo, Ronaldo, and Moutinho. Uruguay has Cavani and Suarez, but I think Portugal has the better defense. A lot of people have Uruguay as their sleeper team, but Ronaldo has been dominating tournaments the past few years. I expect that to continue.
