Bet the 2010 World Cup
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have Uruguay the favorites to win with an even betting line while Ghana comes in at +285. A regulation draw has a money line of +220.

Uruguay has been solid throughout the tournament, going 3-0-1 to this point, including a 2-1 win over South Korea in the round of 16. With six goals scored and just one allowed, Uruguay is quickly emerging as a legit contender for the World Cup title.

Ghana is the last African country remaining in this World Cup. Ghana had not played all that well prior to a 2-1 win over the United States in the round of 16. Ghana showed the ability to jump out quickly in the win, but still, Ghana has scored just four goals and allowed three for the tournament.

Ghana has been a solid upstart in this World Cup, but in the end, this looks like their swan song. Uruguay has a better overall team and has played more consistently. Ghana will play a spirited game, but look for Uruguay to win this game 2-0.

Our World Cup Free Pick for this matchup is: URUGUAY EVEN and UNDER 2.5
