Honduras vs. Chile, 7:30AM ET
Chile is the strong favorite in the game as it had a much tougher road in qualifying and it performed pretty well. Honduras has some talent, but in this game look for Chile to be a little to fast and more aggressive to pick up a 2-0 win.

South Africa vs. Uruguay, 2:30PM ET
This game is key for both teams as all four members of Group A tied in their openers. While South Africa is the host nation, it is not as solid a team as Uruguay. Take advantage of a decent money line due to the boost South Africa is getting due to its home edge. Uruguay is ranked 18th nationally as a team and it tied France in the opener. Look for Uruguay to pick up the big win.
