Greece South Korea Betting – Greece Slight Favorites

Posted by Todd Shale on 6/7/2010 2:36:59 PM

Greece versus South Korea won’t exactly be the sexiest first-round World Cup matchup but it will be an important one in Group B. There is an opportunity for both Greece and South Korea to advance through as Nigeria is their main competition, and they are a tad shorthanded after the loss of John Mikel Obi. Online betting cappers should realize that this contest represents a big opportunity for both nations to get a leg up.

The Storyline

Greece and South Korea are two teams that have had ample success on the international stage, but neither have been able to duplicate it. Greece won Euro 2004 and is still riding the rankings since then as their accomplishments have been minimal since. Meanwhile, South Korea finished fourth in the 2002 World Cup, but that was also a surprising finish that they haven’t been able to match. They also had the advantage of playing at home that year.

Some may view this as a matchup of two underachievers, but the reality is that these two are just not real contenders as they once appeared to be.

Who Has The Edge On Offense: Greece vs South Korea Betting

Greece is by no means an offensive juggernaut and they know that they don’t have the firepower to compete with some of the best teams. Realistically, this has to be an effort by them to keep the games low scoring and make the most of their opportunities. Against Nigeria and Argentina, that will be a problem for them but against South Korea, their style might work.

Korea Republic also isn’t a skilled offensive team and they too look to make the most of minimal offensive opportunities. They also like to close down the back end before making a move forward, so don’t expect a high-scoring affair here.

Edge: Even

Who Has The Edge In Defense: Greece vs South Korea Betting

Both teams are very low-scoring, so this is going to be a defensive-minded chess match. Both will take care of the back end before making bold efforts to move forward, so expect few opportunities to score and even less goals.

Both teams are going to have problems against the more talented teams in the group like Nigeria and Argentina, but this matchup is fairly even and should result in a low tally.

Edge: Even

Notable Injuries – Greece vs South Korea Betting

Both teams are relatively healthy for this contest. Edge: Even

Totals – Greece South Korea Betting

This is going to be a low-scoring affair and under is the way to go. Expect either a 0-0, 1-1 draw or just one goal in total.

Edge: Under

Greece South Korea Betting Prediction & Outlook

Both teams are very defensive-minded and both take good care of their back end, so don’t expect either team to run away with this. One goal is all it will take in this game and Greece has just a bit more pop, so look for them to get the slight win.

World Cup Picks: Greece 1-0
