You have to be a very brave punter to bet on any of this year’s World Cup matches, for if you are a favourite backer then you will have been stung with some of the major upsets that we have seen in the matches so far played.
However, for every loser there is usually a winner, and not necessarily the bookies, and over the next two days we are going to see four of the second round matches being played off, and there are more than enough betting opportunities available for punters on those matches at any of our featured betting sites.
I have always liked the promotional offers available at Betfred for with enhanced odds and the occasional money back promotion on their football betting markets there is plenty of value to be had if you do bet there.
As such let me now give you an insight into the odds currently being offered on the matches that are being played today and tomorrow, as I’m sure many of you out there will be tempted to place a few bets on some or even all of those matches.
Brazil vs Mexico
The Brazil v Mexico match is an interesting one for punters for Brazil have been one of the favourites to win the World Cup this year and will it be interesting to see if they do win that match against Mexico.
However, Spain were the other favourite team to win the World Cup too and we did see them getting knocked out of this tournament yesterday, so anything could happen in this match in which Brazil are 1/2 to win it, the draw is on offer at 16/5 and Mexico could be worth a punt at 7/1!
Which Three Other Teams Will Win Their 2nd Round Matches?
The Belgium vs Japan match looks set to go the way to Belgium and there are plenty of punters currently taking advantage of the odds being offered to them by Betfred on that match, with Belgium being 4/11 to win, the draw being offered at 4.1 and Japan can be backed at huge odds of 9/1.
On Tuesday you will be able to watch Sweden play against Switzerland and that does look a tricky match to predict the winner of for Sweden’s odds = of winning that match are 21/10, the draw is 2/1 and Switzerland could quite easily win it at their current odds of 17/10.
Both Colombia fan and England fans are hoping their respective teams will win their match on Tuesday, and with Colombia being the outsiders to win at odds of 3/1 and the draw available at 23/10 and with England being 11/10 there is some value to be had on that match which to be fair could go the way of either team.
But England fans will not want the first 90 minutes of play to end in a draw, for their track record when a match goes into extra time and then into a penalty shoot out is not that good at all!
