Germany vs. France Free Pick
BRAZIL (The Spread) – Germany and France both have the potential to win the 2014 World Cup, but each must get past the other today at Noon ET to do so.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Germany is the slight favorite to win this match in regulation, as it has odds of +145 to prevail. France has been given a money line of +200 to win in 90 minutes, while the odds of the match being a draw after 90 minutes has been set at +225. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 2.5 goals.
France advanced to today’s quarterfinal match by beating Nigeria 2-0 while Germany picked up a 2-1 win over Algeria.
WORLD CUP FREE PICK: Germany suffered a scare in the round of 16 against Algeria, but still dominated the contest on paper. France has looked very strong thus far, but hasn’t met the same competition Germany has throughout the World Cup. This match really could go either way, but look for Germany to show better ball control than France, which will allow it to grind out a win. France won’t get as many good looks at the net as it has been accustomed to in its other four games, which will cause France to press at times and open the door for Germany to score.
