World Cup 2014 – best bets for quarter-finals

By on July 5, 2014

The Knockout stage has been and gone, with the eight sides remaining in contention for the 2014 World Cup now resting in preparation for their respective quarter final ties. With some intriguing battles to come, there may be a few shocks in store and to ensure you are prepared for them, here are some of the best bets the last eight could throw up.

If you are looking to bet on the fixtures, then it’s worth checking out a casino price comparison site such as OCBB CA , who piece together the best prices on both sports-book and casino sites, such as Bet365 and 888, to provide you with the best deals and offers!

Argentina v Belgium – Draw at 23/10 with 888
Belgium seem to do just enough to force themselves past every opposition team that they have come up against and with Argentina looking far from their best thus far in the competition, the Belgians may well do that once more. Although a win against a South American side in the heat may be a little too much to ask of Marc Wilmots’ tactically astute side, they are more than capable of forcing this Lionel Messi-reliant Argentina side into extra time or even into a penalty shootout, should it go the distance.

Brazil v Colombia – Draw AND Both Teams to Score at 4/1 with Bet365
Chile showed in the round of 16 that a team with passion and pace can upset the Brazilian side and guess what…the Colombians have exactly that combination as well. James Rodriguez may be the star of the line-up who is receiving all the plaudits but with Juan Cuadrado, Jackson Martinez and Mario Yepes they have depth in all areas. Their creativity and trickery can cause Brazil problems but don’t expect the hosts to go down without a fight. Neymar and co offered up the ‘ugly’ win against Chile that the pundits had doubted them of. Yet to offer a fully riveting display, expect Scolari’s men to come out all guns blazing and win the tie in extra time, after a resilient display from the Colombians.

France v Germany – France to win at 11/5 with Bet365
The Germans were exposed by a plucky Algeria side in the round of 16 and were lucky to walk away with a place in the quarter finals in tow. France meanwhile showed they can stay strong at the back while waiting for opportunistic times to strike on their opponents as they defeated Nigeria 2-0 to progress. If Germany offer up a repeat performance, which saw Manuel Neuer effectively play in a keeper-sweeper role, they will surely be punished by a French side who have a highly effective Paul Pogba within their ranks to control proceedings.
