World Cup Best Bets For Day 17

Morocco vs Spain

World Cup Expert Picks: December 6
Teams Spread Moneyline OVER/UNDER
Morocco +1.0 (-112) +525 O2.25 (-112)
Spain -1.0 (-108) -190 U2.25 (-108)
Draw   +310  

Pick: Spain +1.0 (-108)

Morocco went through Group F without conceding a single goal. But let’s be honest, their group was perhaps the weakest in the entire tournament. This matchup against Spain in the Round of 16 is going to be a massive test for the North African side – a test I doubt they pass.

Spain came out of a tough Group E with the best goals per 90 rate (3.00), the fifth-best xG per 90 (1.73) and the second-most goal-creating actions per 90 (5.33) in the tournament. 

With an average possession rate of 75.7 percent, no other side comes even close to Spain’s time on the ball. Morocco has the fourth-highest possession rate allowed at 63 percent, but again, they haven’t yet faced a side like the Spaniards, who have absolutely battered opponents with an endless barrage of quality chances. 

Morocco will defend well but Spain’s vastly superior offense will find the back of the net often enough to cover the spread.

I wouldn’t doubt that Alvaro Morata finds his way onto the scoresheet. The Spanish forward already has three goals in the tournament and the third-best odds to win the Golden Boot.

Portugal vs Switzerland

World Cup Expert Picks: December 6
Teams Spread Moneyline OVER/UNDER
Portugal -0.5 (-110) -110 O2.25 (-115)
Switzerland +0.5 (-110) +320 U2.25 (-105)
Draw   +255  

Pick: Switzerland ML (+320)

Portugal is the better side here on paper. They have a better goals per 90 stat (2.00), a better xG/90 rate (4.6) and even a better goal-creating actions per 90 (3.67). That’s why they’re favored going into this matchup. At -110, they have 52.83 percent implied odds to win. 

My confidence in Portugal has been low from the start of the tournament. And that continues here. I’ve got Switzerland on the moneyline with my pick here. 

Portugal’s group was much weaker than Switzerland’s. Brazil, Serbia and Ghana were all within the top 10 in goals per 90 for the tournament. And yet the Swiss’ defensive stats are much better than their opponents. 

Even in an easy group, Portugal’s defense did not stand tall and it’s going to cost them in this game. The Swiss have the backline to stop just about anything that Portugal generates while scoring enough to take the game.

At +320, this bet will return a $320 profit on a winning $100 bet. Don’t miss out.
