Portugal vs. North Korea, 7:30AM ET
Neither team was able to pick up a win in their opening contests, with North Korea losing 2-1 to Brazil and Portugal playing a scoreless draw with the Ivory Coast. Portugal is the better team on paper, but North Korea still was somewhat impressive against Brazil. Still, Portugal needs a win in this game and has more to play for, so we suggest taking them.

Chile vs. Switzerland, 10AM ET
The Swiss had the big upset of Spain in its opener, but look for a letdown in this game again Chile, which now would be in the driver’s seat to win the Group by winning this game. Chile should be able to counter Switzerland’s strengths and pick up their second win of the World Cup.
