The two Group H games on Monday kick-off with South Korea and Ghana and as we have done for every game throughout the World Cup, we take a look at some of the key betting markets ahead of this lunchtime kick-off…
Ghanaian fans will be wondering how on Earth they failed to get at least a point against Portugal in their opening game. That chance right at time expired could and really should have been converted to seal a 3-3 draw. They also can feel pretty aggrieved for the penalty conceded as it was very much on the soft side. It was a really poor first half but a second 45 minutes with five goals shows just what can happen when teams open it up.
We’ve added plenty of new player prop bets that are available around 24-48 hours before kick-off including tackles, assists and Shots on Target. You can check out all our latest prices for this one via the Latest South Korea vs Ghana Odds button below.
South Korea opened with a 0-0 draw with Uruguay and when I went to look up the stats just now, it offered by a highlights package 2m50s in length. Having watched the game in the office on Thursday afternoon, the idea that there was nearly three minutes of action worth watching again is laughable. Just one Shot on Target and 17 fouls in total between both sides all game says it all. Hopefully this game is a bit more open and has a little bit more intensity.
In the Match Result Result, we see all three outcomes all relatively close in the netting. South Korea are considered the betting favourites at 6/4 but both the draw and a Ghana win are not too much longer coming in at 21/10.
On Thursday, Son was a 3/1 bet to score anytime against Uruguay but the Spurs star is the shortest price to hit the back of the net on Monday lunchtime as he’s priced up at 13/8. Inaki Williams is the top choice for Ghana at 9/4. The Athletic Bilbao front man is yet to score for his country but what a good time this would be to open his account. Both Ayew brothers are 11/4.
11/8 for Over 2.5 goals feels a bit long with BTTS 10/11. Both sides will surely play with a bit more about them so I think they’ll be goals.
