The second round of matches take place in Group B, in the FIFA Confederations Cup today.
The early kick-off is the mismatch between whoever Spain decide to put out against Tahiti, and the second match is a more interesting one between Uruguay and Nigeria.
Spain start off at an unbackable 1.002 against Tahiti tonight. To clarify that, if I was to put £100.00 on Spain tonight, I would win 20p. I had to look twice at that myself, as I wasn’t sure if it was 1/50, where I would have got £2.00 back on a £100.00 bet…. but it isn’t.
The match odds are, Spain 1.002, Draw 81.00, Tahiti 251.00.
There’s obviously no value there, so other markets could be the way to find a bet on this match.
The second match is far more of a contest, with Uruguay probably (depending on the Spain result) needing to avoid defeat to Nigeria to stay in the competition.
The match odds for this fixture are Nigeria 4.50, Draw 3.50, Uruguay 1.80.
The South Americans are heavy favourites here, and having seen how wasteful and slack Nigeria looked against Tahiti, that’s no real surprise.
Having said that, it’s hard to justify Uruguay being odds on after their pretty dismal performance against Spain at the weekend.
Again, the Bet365 0-0 bore draw refund is available on this match, giving you your money back on all pre-match Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecast bets, if the match finishes 0-0. I can’t see it being an issue in the Spain game, although I thought it might have had a chance of coming into play in last night’s Italy match!
Onto the outright winner betting, and Japan and Mexico are now out of the tournament after yesterday’s defeats. Despite having already qualified, Brazil now find themselves as second favourites behind Spain on the back of their performance against Mexico.
Last night seen an entertaining match involving Italy, yes the Italians! Their 4-3 hard fought victory over Japan seen the Japanese exit the competition, but it has to be said that they look a fairly decent side who should have at least got a draw from yesterday’s contest.
