A week or so of World Cup football has left most punters a little wiser and some kicking themselves for not taking advantage of Stan James’s 13/10 for Germany to reach the semi finals – they’re 4/5 following their dismantling of Portugal in midweek. Similarly, the odds against Germany meeting Argentina in the final have tumbled, from 14/1 to 15/2 (Winner.com).
Joachim Low’s side are 3/10 (Paddy Power) to overhaul Ghana on Saturday. A repeat of their 4-0 drubbing of Portugal is rated a 14/1 shot by BetVictor.com and Ladbrokes offer 1/2 about them leading at the end of both halves.
The pair met at the last World Cup when a Mesut Ozil goal was enough to settle it – the Arsenal man is 7/4 at Stan James to score at any time on Saturday but the bulk of scorer-related money is sure to be for Thomas Muller.
The Bayern Munich man struck a hat-trick against the Portuguese and is 39/10 (888Sport) to net first.
Thomas Muller to score first – 39/10 (888Sport)
