Uruguay vs. South Korea
Odds, picks & predictions
South Korea: +450
Moneyline pick: Uruguay -145
Uruguay are looking like the team to beat in Group H, boasting the likes of Luis Suarez, Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez, Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde, and a slew of other players who contribute to their dangerous-looking squad. Valencia striker Edinson Cavani will likely spend plenty of time up top for Uruguay, bringing a wealth of experience as he’ll be involved in his fourth World Cup tournament. Suarez is also making his fourth World Cup appearance, as both players will likely be participating in the World Cup for the final time.
South Korea boast one of the Premier League’s elite scorers in Son Heung-min, last season’s co-Golden Boot winner with Tottenham. He suffered an injury on November 1 and still remains to be seen if he’ll be in the lineup for Thursday’s match, but if he doesn’t take the field then it’ll definitely hurt South Korea’s chances even further.
Despite the upsets we’ve already seen in the group stage so far, I’m backing Uruguay to get the comfortable win at Education City Stadium.
