World Cup 2014 Football Prediction Thread

World Cup 2014 Football Prediction Thread
World Cup 2014 is underway and the battle to determine the best football squad in the world is almost started. I created a thread to monitor and predict the teams that will advance in the next round. Remember that this is just my personal picks. This is a reference thread for my own betting picks, I hope you guys find it useful.. Pardon with my English

Group A Prediction: Brazil, Croatia, Cameroon, Mexico

I think the majority will pick the host for this group. Brazil had a good squad as always, even they have shown a few weaknesses in the past, they need to stand out and secure their spot. Also the advantage of playing at home.

Croatia late losses in their qualifying group is not an issue here. Croatia does have the surprise factor with Modrić, Mandzukić, Srna, Rakitić, Olić, Pletikosa. The chances against Brazil is low, a close match with a with Mexico that can lead to a draw. Cameron will not be a problem they will definitely crush them.

I heard that Carlos Vela the Mexico's best player will not play in the tournament. The Mexican team has the greatest players, but they have a poor relationship as a team. The main focus of the Mexican squad is to avoid being eliminated in the group stages.

Cameroon's performance against Tunisia was phenomenal with a solid 4 - 1 win. Cameroon has a terrible record when playing away from home and not be tolerated by the tough teams of this group.

Prediction: Brazil will be the top seed in this group. Croatia and Mexico will be the deciding match for a second. But the Croatia firepower house will edge the match and go to the next round.

Group A Score Prediction:
Brazil vs Croatia: 3 - 1
Mexico vs Cameroon: 2 - 0
Brazil vs Mexico: 2 - 1
Cameroon vs Croatia 1 - 2
Brazil vs Cameroon 4 - 0
Croatia vs Mexico 3 - 2

Other group stages prediction to be followed. As for now wanna here your thoughts or share your own predictions.

Group B Predictions..

The Group winners will be Spain, they have won three major tournaments. Also one of the favorite for this tournament. Netherlands will be a threat to Spain and that makes the opening match dictate the tone. But still a close game in favor of Spain.

There's no major shock if we saw Netherlands go all the way to the top although Spain will be the top seed in this group.

Chile needs to be in top shape when they face Spain and Netherlands. Too bad for them, there's a Spain and Holland barrier all the way up. Meanwhile, I didn't expect much from Australia this year's competition lowest rank team.

Score Predictions:

Spain vs Netherlands: 2 - 1 Spain
Chile vs Australia: 2 - 0 Chile
Australia vs Netherlands: 1 - 2
Spain vs Chile: 3 - 1
Australia vs Spain: 0 - 2
Netherlands vs Chile 2 - 0

Spain: 7pts
Netherlands: 5pts
Chile: 3pts
Australia: 1pts

Group C Predictions:

Currently top 4 in the FIFA ranking Colombia may be the top choice for this group. Finishing second in the North American qualifying group and with the likes of Falcao this team will be a bad ass in this group.

Ivory Coast probably the top contender for Colombia. With Manchester City's midfield man Yaya Toure, one of the biggest names in this tournament. This will be a great opportunity to show his talent in the world stage.

Japan has a strong squad, but with the likes of Colombia and Ivory Coast to compete with, this will be a tough one for the Samurai Blue. But the Japanese can provide a challenge to any opponent they face. Japan could surprise a team or two.

This is the third time Greece will step in the World Cup. The target for them is to past the group stages its not an easy task, especially Colombia and Ivory Coast are there. Maybe they will put a good show against Japan, but the Japanese will not that easy to beat.

Score Predictions:

Colombia vs Greece: 2 - 0 Colombia
Ivory Coast vs Japan: 2 - 1 Ivory Coast
Colombia vs Ivory Coast: 3 - 1 Colombia
Japan vs Greece: 2 - 1 Japan
Japan vs Colombia: 1 - 2 Colombia
Greece vs Ivory Coast: 1 - 2 Ivory Coast

Colombia: 7pts
Ivory Coast: 6 pts
Japan: 4pts
Greece: 2pts

Group D Predictions:

Honestly, it's really hard to predict which two teams will advance to the next round. But I am confident that Uruguay will make it through to the second round as group winners. Luis Suarez is the nations key player one of my favorites and 1 of the world dangerous football player.

Italy biggest threat will be Uruguay a strong team that play good football, especially in the last five to six years. Competition is just too strong in this group, but with the likes of Wayne Rooney Italy will surely make it through..

As much as we may like to see England progress, their current form, a dodgy record against better sides and a lack of top quality players makes it hard to see the Three Lions emerge from this group unscathed. Roy Hodgson’s side shouldn’t be ruled out, but it will be very tough, especially in a humid Brazil.

Costa Rica will be lose to England. It's the last game of the group phase, so both teams could arrive without the chance of qualifying for the next round.

Score Predictions:

Uruguay vs Costa Rica: 3 - 1
England vs Italy: 1 - 2
Uruguay vs England: 2 - 0
Italy vs Costa Rica: 2 - 0
Italy vs Uruguay: 2 - 2
Costa Rica vs England: 1 - 2

Uruguay: 7pts
Italy: 6pts
England: 5pts
Costa Rica: 2pts

Group E Predictions

Each team will have their reasons to believe they can qualify, but I'm looking for France and Switzerland to make it through. Ecuador and Honduras are my picks to be heading home early..

France has the talent to be group winners here. Their form has been good recently made it five wins from six games. If France uses what should be a relatively easy qualifying group stage to develop genuine team chemistry they can be more dangerous for the other teams.

Switzerland knows how to win games, they breezed through qualifying and unbeaten in ten games, keeping seven clean wins. This will be a showdown for the top spot for the French and Swiss teams, but also an intense competition from Central and South American opponents.

Ecuador had an excellent home record they conceded three goals at home during prelims and drop two points, but away from home they only got 3 points from seven matches. They didn't win any of those seven away matches. That's bad news for them because they need to play away two times in this group. Also, they will against France in the last match in this group which is they are the home team.

Honduras will be my bottom team for this group. They have a good result and qualify, but France and Switzerland are too good especially in this international tournament. Maybe a first world cup win against Ecuador, but I think will not be happening.

Score predictions:

Switzerland vs Ecuador 2 - 1
France vs Honduras 3 - 0
Switzerland vs France 1 - 2
Honduras vs Ecuador 1 - 1
Honduras vs Switzerland 1 - 2
Ecuador vs France 1 - 2

France 7pts
Switzerland 5pts
Ecuador 3pts
Honduras 2pts

Group F predictions

There's no doubt that Argentina will be my top seed in this group. With the likes of Aguero, di Maria and Lionel Messi this is a 9 point team. It's an easy passage into the knockout stages plus Alejandro Sabella an attack oriented manager, a lot of goals in this team.

Nigeria will be the runner up they have lost only one of their six games and scoring an awesome twelve goals in the process. They will be battling for the second place against Bosnia & Herzegovina, but they're capable of defeating them.

A lot of people said that Bosnia & Herzegovina and Argentina will dominate this group. Bosnia & Herzegovina are a strong team, but I think Nigeria will knock them down. I've seen their showdown against Lithuania and I'm not impressed.

Unfortunately for Iran there will be no goals in this side.

Score predictions:
Argentina vs Bosnia & Herzegovina: 3 - 1
Iran vs Nigeria: 0 - 2
Argentina vs Iran: 4 - 0
Nigeria vs Bosnia & Herzegovina: 2 - 1
Nigeria vs Argentina: 1 - 2
Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Iran: 2 - 0

Argentina 9pts
Nigeria 5pts
Bosnia & Herzegovina 4pts
Iran 0pts

Jun 17 World Cup picks

Belgium vs Algeria

Belgium is too strong to handle by Algeria they maybe go for defensive duties and target draw, but I think it will not happen. This will be a 2 to 3 point goal win for Belgium.

1x2
Pick: Belgium
Odds: 1.46
Stake: 10/10

Asian Handicap
Pick: -1.00 Belgium
Odds: 1.92
Stake: 10/10

Over Under
Pick: Over 2.5
Odds: 2.23
Stake: 5/10

__________

Brazil vs Mexico

The Brazil vs Croatia is a weak game for the home team. I'm not underestimating Brazil, but on that match the referee's penalty changed the game. I think Brazil will win the same way they defeated Croats. They're the better team, home advantage and the refs are on their side. I don't hesitate to take 1x2 Brazil @ 1.32 with SBOBET.

1x2
Pick: Brazil
Odds: 1.32
Stake: 10/10

Asian Handicap
Pick: -1.25 Brazil
Odds: 1.80
Stake: 8/10

Over Under
Pick: Over 3
Odds: 2.09
Stake: 5/10

__________

Russia vs Korea Republic

We saw Russia defeated Korea last November in a friendly match, even this was only a friendly match the Russians are strong favourites of the Bookies. This game will be for the Russian's with ease, and a 2.5 goals considering the form of both nations.

1x2
Pick: Russia
Odds: 2.17
Stake: 7/10

Asian Handicap
Pick: -0.25 Russia
Odds: 1.86
Stake: 7/10

Over Under
Pick: Over 2.5
Odds: 2.28
Stake: 5/10

Good luck..

World Cup 2014 Picks June 22

Belgium vs Russia

As the favourites for this match Belgium might win this game, but we saw them winning with a one goal advantage. I think putting a decent amount in Asian Handicap -0.50 2.01 with SBOBet will be a winning bet with fair price.

Asian Handicap
Pick: -0.50 Belgium
Odds: 2.01
Stake: 10/10

South Korea vs Algeria

I didn't expect a lot of goals from this game, as for the strikers to dictate the tempo of this match. So i'll put a small amount on Under 2 for this match. In the other side South Korea will the this game clean with a good 2.29 odds.

Over Under
Pick: Under 2
Odds: 2.16
Stake: 3/10

1x2
Pick: South Korea
Odds: 2.29
Stake: 8/10

Portugal vs USA

The most solid bet for this match is to stick on Portugal for 90 mins, even the odds are not that good for them. So I decide to put a decent amount in AH -1 for Portugal and expect a two goal margin for them.

1x2
Pick: Portugal
Odds: 1.75
Stake: 10/10

Asian Handicap
Pick: Portugal -1
Odds: 2.49
Stake: 5/10

Good luck!
