As the Group Stage portion of the World Cup is over we now focus on the Knockout Stages! This is where the games get tougher and of course, the bets get more grand and scary. Luckily we go into this on a hot streak and we will continue that tomorrow by picking Uruguay. In this blog I will tell you why Uruguay winning tomorrow is not just a great bet but maybe the best value bet of this millennium.
Uruguay vs Portugal
You may ask yourself, "why of all photos and gifs did I pick one of Suarez biting someone?" It's cause we are EATING tomorrow! Uruguay goes into this game as the only team who didn't concede a goal in their group, and boy is that not a fluke! Their two center backs (especially Diego Godin) have looked incredible and have honestly been a man mountain and helped Uruguay get wins when their attack didn't look very good. Now with their offense and midfield coming alive in the last two games, they seem like one of the teams that will be very hard to beat. For a country of fewer than 5 million people to have two of the top ten strikers in the world shows a lot about how this is truly a golden generation for them. Portugal on the other hand, sneaked through their group after Iran missed a sitter very late in the game, for me, we have one team who is complete and very very stable in all areas, and Portugal is pretty much the opposite, they are very reliant on Ronaldo or a freak wonder goal from one of the there inconsistent attackers. I see Uruguay going out, playing defensive and taking control of the midfield and waiting for their two-star strikers to take advantage of an old defense of Portugal, and they will get the win.
Prediction: 3-1 Uruguay
