Russia vs. South Korea Free Pick
BRAZIL (The Spread) – Russia enters today’s World Cup match with South Korea as the favorite, but can it get a needed win?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Russia has odds of -110 to win this match, while South Korea has been given a money line of +300 to win. The over/under total for the game has been set at 2 goals.
Russia has a winning record in World Cup play, going 17-14-6 in its history while scoring 64 goals and allowing 59. South Korea has appeared in 28 World Cup matches, but not had a ton of success. It is 5-15-8 overall, scoring only 28 goals while allowing a total of 61.
WORLD CUP FREE PICK: Russia has missed out on the last few World Cups, but they were on a mission in qualifying this time around, going 7-2-1 while scoring an impressive 20 goals and allowing just five. South Korea has shown promise in recent World Cups, but Russia appears to be built to reach the second round of this event. I expect a hard-fought match, but look for Russia to squeak out the win with a late goal.
WORLD CUP FREE PICK: RUSSIA -110
