Germany Are The Favourites To Beat Portugal on June 16th

One of the most compelling matches in the Group stage of the 2014 World Cup is the Group G battle between Portugal and Germany on June 16th.

Germany and Portugal are participating in the group that has been dubbed this World Cup’s Group of Death. The Group includes:

Germany
Portugal
USA
Ghana

There are really no soft spots in this group, as even Ghana has advanced to the last two knockout rounds at the World Cup, while the United States has improved dramatically in recent years.

Germany and Portugal are the two favourites to move on to the knockout stage from this group, and both teams will be looking to essentially clinch a birth in the next round by winning the June 16th contest.

Germany is considered one of the favourites to win the entire tournament, while Portugal has one of the world’s best football players on their team in Cristiano Ronaldo.

Let’s take a look at the odds for this game:

Germany, 2.00
Draw, 3.30
Portugal, 3.80

According to these odds, a successful wager on Germany would yield a total profit of €100 from a €100 bet, while a successful bet on Portugal would yield a total profit of €280.

Despite the offensive firepower that will be present in this game, bookmakers believe that it will be a fairly low scoring affair, based on the current over/under line:

Under 2.5 Goals, 1.60
Over 2.5 Goals, 2.25

This should be a fantastic contest and is just one of the big games that will be taking place over the next couple of weeks at the World Cup.
