Bet On World Cup – Third Place/Final Picks For The World Cup

World Cup Finals Betting OddsNFL football betting players don’t have a lot to do for another month or so, so they’ll be gearing up for another type of football as the third-place and final matches of the month-long tournament at South Africa will be held this weekend.

Uruguay Germany Betting – Saturday, July 10th, 2:30 PM ET

The Germans should be favored in this match, as they’ve beaten the Uruguayans six times and drawn two in their eight meetings.  Neither team really look good in their semifinal losses, although Uruguay came back to scrap for a 3-2 loss against the Netherlands.  The Germans were lucky to lose only 1-0 against the Spanish, showing an anxiety that we haven’t seen all tournament.  Uruguay may be without star player Diego Forlan, who left the Holland game late with an injury, and would be like an NCAA football betting favorite losing their Heisman candidate right before a bowl game.  However, we’re not sure that Forlan would even help Uruguay in this match as the Germans will be ready after their poor showing against Spain.  We’re taking the Germans to win the third-place match for the second World Cup in a row.

Netherlands Spain Betting – Sunday, July 11th, 2:30 PM ET

The soccer betting odds for this match are too close to call, and the head-to-head history between these two make it even closer: the Netherlands have won four and drawn one of their eight meetings with the Spanish, who finally put on a good performance in their win over Germany.  Xavi proved why many people feel he is the best midfielder in the world with his tremendous range of passing, and it was his corner that Carlos Puyol headed into the net after 73 minutes to give Spain a well-deserved win.  This will be a battle of the midfielders as Xavi is joined by Xabi Alonso, while the Dutch will go with Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben, who both scored against Uruguay.  Both also have midfielders they can bring off the bench in Spain’s Cesc Fabregas and Holland’s Rafael Van Der Vaart, who was a game-changer when he came on in the second half against the Uruguayans.  Whoever can get control of the midfield will have a good chance at lifting the World Cup for the first time, and after their showing against the Germans, it’s hard to bet against Spain’s possession style of football.  It also doesn’t hurt that they have David Villa, one of the most deadly strikers in the world, and he is having a much better tournament than his Holland counterpart, Robin Van Persie.  In this match of teams that have never won the World Cup, go with the Spanish in your online sports betting picks.
