Slovakia vs Italy match prediction

Very much a game Italy will be expected to win and all things being equal they will probably do so.

We don’t like backing teams struggling to score when they are such short odds and would probably have a crack at the Italy Clean Sheet @ $1.83 if we were going to have a bet.

No bet for us but if there was a market for First Dive then we would plonk a fortune on Italy because they are morals!

No Bet

Back the Italians to keep Slovakia goalless if you want a bet and make sure you visit Betfair for the best odds you can get.

Paraguay have been impressive with an Italy draw and solid 2-0 win over Slovakia and the South American teams are making their presence felt at this World Cup.

New Zealand scored a last gasp equaliser to draw with Slovakia before arguably being more impressive than Italy in their last match when they had a 1-1 draw.

Paraguay $1.44
Draw $4.00
New Zealand $8.00

Paraguay vs New Zealand

We have been very impressed with Paraguay and they are a very good outfit who should pack too many guns for a gallant New Zealand side.

The Kiwis will have a decent crack and we think the South Americans will win by one or two goals and happy to get on for the win.

Paraguay to Win @ $1.44 at Sportsbet

Back Paraguay to win and even consider the $1.73 for not allowing New Zealand to score and remember to visit Betfair for the best odds you can get.
