Winners: ARG vs. URU

We were able to keep the new streak alive as AC Milan beat Cagliari 2-1. We’re taking modest gains but they’re still gains. Better than losses.

On to the next action.

Tonight, Argentina visits Uruguay in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying. Argentina struggled early in qualification and finds themselves in fifth place heading into tonight’s game. It’s got four games to get in position for automatic qualification. It’s not a must-win, but it is a must-not-lose. Uruguay is firmly in third and can cruise into the World Cup next year by just getting points. CONMEBOL is by far the most competitive continent association in my opinion. One of the last World Cup’s finalists is sitting in fifth place with the first or second best player in the world, depending on who you ask. There are no easy games and this one is far from it.

Here’s how we’ll bet it.

  • Pick 1: Argentina +110 (Bet $10 to win $11)
  • Pick 2: Draw +240 (Bet $8 to win $19.20)

The reason I’m not betting as much is we’re up on the day. Also, I don’t usually bet two good teams against each other but the odds were good and I have a good feel for the players involved. I feel Argentina is good enough to get something from this game on the road knowing they need points to qualify for the next World Cup.

I’ll be watching this because it’ll be good game, but it won’t be easy.
