With World Cup fever hitting, I think a lot of bettors fail to realize what actually happens every year.
There are big differences in talent levels and while everyone loves a nice Cinderella, stick to the NCAA tourney for that.
The biggest mistake people make is betting large goal lines. The average score of a WC match is only 2.83. Teams play cautiously because they just need one counter and 1-0 is all you need. Once you pick up that crucial goal, you defend. That 2.83 comes with thrashings like Germany’s 7-1 win. Be careful laying -2 -2.5 on big favorites or betting O 2.5 or 2.75.
Best bet of the tournament has to be Uruguay to win the weakest group in the tournament. You’ll find -130 to -150 in the final hours here. The group also has the weakest defenses so take a sniff at Suarez for the golden boot (+3500 to 4500 depending on your book) as long as he doesn’t bit anyone.
For today, as many others have posted. Love the Saudi’s +1/1.5 and if you find +300, the draw is certainly in play.
Careful with the hype out there, but excited for this World Cup! Lot of teams can win it and let’s make some money on it!
