The Confederations Cup action is back on, and I’m hoping that this can be the start of a profitable winning streak
After the first round of matches, I’ve decided to bet $38 on Over 2.5 goals for the Russia vs Portugal match up.
Russia will need to draw/win to have a good chance of getting out of the group, while Portugal know a win is a must or they’ll be in deep trouble.
With the home support behind them, I’m counting on Russia scoring at least once. At the same time, hopefully the firepower of the Portuguese attack will be able get them a couple of goals.
Personally, I’m predicting a 2-1 win for Russia due to home support (I was seriously considering taking Russia at +0.5), but even if it’s 2-1 in Portugal’s favour, I’ll still be winning my bet.
After all, I don’t do so well when taking/giving handicaps.
Fingers crossed and good luck to me!
