2014 World Cup Free Picks: Iran vs. Nigeria
3 p.m., Monday, June 16 – Arena da Baixada, Curitiba (ESPN)
Match Betting Lines
World Cup outsiders Iran are +280 in their first group play match. Nigeria are +125 for the three points. The draw can be had at +220. The total is 2 goals, EVEN for the ‘over’ and -120 for the ‘under’.
Iran is seen as the weakest team in the field. Essentially unknown for the most part in terms of their overall play, however the team is led by experience Portuguese manager Carlos Queiroz.
Africa’s reigning Cup of Nations champion will consider themselves as strong favorites to advance along with Argentina in the group. The East African nation has plenty of quality players such as Chelsea’s John Obi Mikel, Liverpool’s Victor Moses and Stoke City’s Peter Odemwingie.
Knowing that Argentina is pretty much a lock to win the group, both teams will come out defensive-minded, not wanting to risk allowing an early goal that could leave them with a loss after one match. Both would settle for a draw, but Nigeria will be thinking about three points as well once the second half gets underway.
Key Injuries, Suspensions, Yellow Cards
Both teams are pretty much full strength entering the World Cup.
Iran is going to struggle to earn a result in any of their three group play matches. Nigeria is a physically strong team, and Iran will find that difficult to defend. Nigeria breaks through late with a key goal and the victory.
