Rio 2016 Olympic Games – Football Betting Previews, Odds And Tips
After day 1 of this Olympic Football Tournament, we’ve seen our fair share of interesting games. It is now easier to judge how will the teams fare against each other, after seeing their style, the form of their players and the way their coaches set them up.
Without a doubt, South Korea and Germany were two of the most spectacular teams of day 1. Who will emerge victorious after their clash?
07/08/2016 – Salvador
Betting Odds: Germany 1.71 or 5/7 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 South Korea 4.60 or 7/2
Although the South Koreans top the group, they are the ones that need a positive result more than their opponents. A Day 3 clash against holders Mexico, who will also be fighting for qualification, will be a very hard game. A point or points taken against Germany can greatly aid their quest for quarter-final qualification.
The 8-0 win against Fiji doesn’t say a lot about their strength, Fiji being by far the weakest team in this tournament. We’ll see how well they can match against the German.
Meanwhile, Germany managed a 2-2 draw against Mexico on Day 1, after a game in which they’ve had better possession and more attempts on goal. This German team seems very good, led by players like Meyer, Gnabry, and Ginter which surely want to prove themselves.
They are looking for a positive result against the Asians because they face Fiji in the last game of the group. With a point against South Korea and 3 against Fiji, they will surely qualify for the knockout stages regardless of other results.
Having said these, we anticipate a high-spectacle game between the two sides. An over 2,5 goal bet seems like a very good idea while betting that Germany will score is another great way to make easy, sure money.
For those of you who enjoy higher odds, a Germany to win & over 2,5 goal bet might prove winning, and with some good money attached to it. Best of luck!
Total Goals – Over 2.5: 1.70 or 7/10
Germany To Win & Over 2.5: 2.25 or 5/4
