New Zealand vs. Slovakia, 7:30AM ET

New Zealand is amongst the least favored teams to win the World Cup and an upset in this game is highly unlikely. But, a draw (+300) could be within reason. Still, when picking an outright winner, you can’t go against Slovakia, which knows this game is crucial for it to win.

Ivory Coast vs. Portugal, 10AM ET

This will be a competitive contest as both teams have high aspirations for the World Cup. However, Ivory Coast’s expectations seem to be based on the World Cup taking place in Africa. So, in this game we like Portugal, which we believe is a contender to reach the semifinals of the World Cup.

Brazil vs. North Korea, 2:30PM ET

This one shouldn’t be close. Brazil is a world power in soccer and North Korea is just happy to be playing in the World Cup. If you are feeling really froggy, you could opt for the draw bet at +1000, but a win for North Korea could go down as the biggest upset in World Cup history. So, we suggest going with Brazil, if even betting on the game at all.
