|Date & Time||Wednesday June 27, 2018, 10:00 AM (EDT)|
The Line: Germany -200 / South Korea +600/ Draw +375 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Germany had a massive scare against Sweden as they elimination was very close. The Germans survived that scare and now enter this game knowing that they must win to ensure that they have a spot in the round of 16. That prospect should result in a great game of football.
South Korea were eliminated following their loss to Mexico in the second round of games. That would have broken many Korean hearts but I am sure that the Asian side would like to leave with a win. There are many top quality players in this Korean side and they have managed to complete well with both Sweden and Mexico. Son has been looking good and if he can spark some magic, it is possible that South Korea get a result out of this game against Germany.
Germany knows that they must win this game and even that might not be enough for them to qualify. This side has not looked very good and the defense is starting to become an issue. Boateng will be suspended for this game while Hummels is looking like he is out of favor with the manager. Beating South Korea is a task that Germany should complete but they will need to improve their defense.
I am going to predict that Germany wins this game. They are the better side and have more incentive to win this game. Unfortunately, we are not getting a great price on Germany to win and as a result, we should not wager on the outright result market. The best bet in the over 2.5 goals. Germany will need lots of goals to ensure they qualify and perhaps even top the group. We are getting a great price on this wager and I see it happening.
