Spain comes into this game sitting as the favorite sitting at -295 while Norway is the underdog sitting at +900. The total in this game sits at 2.5 goals with the over paying out at -115. 

Spain Betting Preview 

Spain didn’t play awfully during the World Cup, but it was a bit shocking when they were knocked out during the Round of 16. Against Morocco, the offense couldn’t find the back of the net and they ended up losing 3-0 in a shootout. Spain had 77 percent of the possession and only managed one shot on target. There are 11 players back from the squad that was in the World Cup, but there is still plenty of new faces that could feature for the squad. David Garcia and Joselu are both new to the team, but both players could get the start in this game. 

Norway Betting Preview

The last game for Norway came back against Finland and they were able to play a 1-1 draw. Finland fell behind in the 32nd minute, but Alexander Sorloth scored in the 46th minute to secure the victory. Norway had 56 percent of the possession and seven shots on target. One big problem for Norway is they are without their top player. Haaland is dealing with a groin injury and isn’t able to go. In his absence, it’s going to need to be guys like  Odegaard who step up and put pressure on the defense of Spain. Norway might not get many scoring chances here, but they are going to need to take advantage of the ones they get. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Spain seems to be trying to figure out the ranks in terms of who should be playing and that is going to be a problem for them. Even with Haaland, this Norway offense has a ton of playmakers and they are going to find success in this game. Look for Norway to find the back of the net a few times and they are going to pull off the big upset.
