Germany v. Costa Rica
Odds, picks & predictions
Costa Rica: +2200
Moneyline pick: Germany -1100
There’s no value in taking Germany on the moneyline, so you’ll want to go with a goal line if you’re backing the European side. Germany have to pour on the goals here if they want to have any shot of making the round of 16, so taking the side at -2.5 or even -3.5 has a better payoff. You can also take Germany’s team goals at over 3.5 and over 4.5 for solid payouts, assuming the team does go hard from the opening whistle.
