France vs. South Africa, 10AM ET
France is a disaster right now with all the off-the-field issues and their World Cup showing has been poor. South Africa hasn’t performed as the host country would like, but it should have a spirited effort in its final game. While we don’t see an upset win, we like a draw for this game.

The winner of this match wins this group and Uruguay has been the bigger surprise as Mexico was expected to do well coming in. Uruguay has looked like the better team of the two as its goal differential has been better than Mexico’s. We like Uruguay in this match.

Greece vs. Argentina, 2:30PM ET
Argentina is looking for a sweep of Group B and while Greece picked up its first win in its last game, it doesn’t have the talent to defeat Argentina. Look for Argentina to win this match comfortably.
