WORLD CUP BETTING: Argentina maintain a 100% record by defeating Greece and Portugal’s massive 7-0 win sees them slightly shortened. Also, David Villa has officialy arrived.
Maradona displayed some of his squad depth against Greece by making 7 changes and coming out 2-0 winners. Even 36-year-old striker Martin Palermo got on the score sheet, which many would not have foreseen considering the wealth of attacking talent ahead of him.
Uruguay made a decent move in the market after they went through at the top of Group A with 7 points. They are now 25/1 at Paddy Power as they successfully avoided Argentina in the 2nd round and set themselves up with a very winnable tie against South Korea.
Luis Suarez got the goal for Uruguay, and his 1st of the competition, but it’s probably too late for him to make a charge for top goalscorer and Sportingbet’s 100/1 about him would reflect this. Gonzo Higuain remains 3/1 fav at Coral but David Villa looked like he meant business, albeit against Honduras, and has steamed in to 9/2 with Bet365. England’s nearest challenger in the market is Wayne Rooney who remains on 33/1 at Paddy Power despite no goals to his name.
