Winners: GER vs. CZE

We kept it going yesterday. First full day back in Vegas and it feels like I never left. I did forget how hot it was though. Yikes. Hopefully, we can stay as hot with the picks as the weather.

Now to today’s games.

Today, Germany faces the Czech Republic in another World Cup qualifier. Germany, the defending World Cup champion, is undefeated in group play, sitting at 6-0. What’s even more impressive to me is it’s scored 27 goals while allowing just one. That’s amazing. Seriously. Germany is in that top-tier of world soccer talent at every position with Spain, Brazil and France. It has one of the deepest rosters in the world as evidenced by its Confederations Cup victory this past summer, using it’s ‘B-squad’. The Czech Republic sits third in the group and will try to get at least a point from this game having suffered a defeat to Germany last October in group play 3-0. However, this game is in the Czech Republic.

Here’s how we’ll bet it.

  • Pick 1: Germany -250 (Bet $30 to win $12)
  • Pick 2: Draw +360 (Bet $10 to win $36)

I don’t know what Germany’s starting lineup will be, but Coach Löw has given a clue for some who will be included.

He will have a strong squad that’s capable of winning today. Let’s hope that leave the country with points.

Hoping for the best yet again.
