WORLD CUP BETTING: Live on ITV: Sat 12.30 & BBC1: Sat 15.00: Day 2 of the World Cup, South Korea v Greece followed by Argentina v Nigeria as Group B gets underway.
At it the Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg, Argentina look a banker at 1/2 with Ladbrokes to overcome a Nigeria side that disappointed in the African Cup of Nations, but with bookies giving little away, punters might be better advised to turn their attention to Greece, who take on South Korea in Port Elizabeth.
It possesses all of the hallmarks of a low-scoring affair with Greece, at 6/4 (Partybets) strong defensively and Jaxx.com’s 21/10 outsiders South Korea lacking cutting edge and that combination points to and 888Sport’s 19/10 marked against a clean sheet for the Greeks, who will look to keep things tight and profit at set pieces; exactly the department in which their opponents look vulnerable.
England v USA to draw – 10/3 (Victor Chandler)
Peter Crouch to be the first England player substituted – 3/1 (William Hill)
Greece to keep a clean sheet v South Korea – 19/10 (Jaxx.com)
