United States vs. Algeria, 10AM ET

It is win and in for the United States and after its comeback effort against Slovenia, you have to like the U.S. team to come through with a win today. Algeria is the worst team in the group at this point, so we think the U.S. will get the nod.

World Cup Free Pick: United States | Best Line: -140

Slovenia vs. England, 10AM ET

Like France, this World Cup hasn’t gone well for England, but it still can advance with a win over Slovenia. Slovenia has shown a lot of promise and has a lot to play for, but we expect a spirited effort from the English, which should get them a win.

World Cup Free Pick: England | Best Line: -250

Australia vs. Serbia, 2:30PM ET

This is a big game for Serbia, which can advance to the next round with a win. Advancing would be a major victory for this country, so look for it to shine against a poor Australia team that would need a win and a lot of help to get to the next round.

World Cup Free Pick: Serbia | Best Line: -125

Ghana vs. Germany, 2:30PM ET

The winner moves on to the next round and Germany is coming off a surprising loss to Serbia, which should have been a wake up call for the group favorites. While Ghana has a lot to play for, it will likely not have enough for the talented German squad.

World Cup Free Pick: Germany | Best Line: -225
