Tuesday Betting Tips

Portugal v Cameroon

Portugal’s preparations for the World Cup suffered a set-back after they were held to a goalless draw with Cape Verde last week. Despite the creativity of the likes of Ronaldo, Deco and Simão, they were unable to find the breakthrough, which will be a concern for Carlos Quieroz.

This game will be different, since Cameroon will not simply defend with 11 men behind the ball for the entire 90 minutes. There will be more space for the Portuguese front-men to work in. They are very solid in defence these days, having kept 7 consecutive clean sheets in international games now.

Cameroon have their own problems following a dispute between star striker, Samuel Eto’o, and former player, Roger Milla. This led to reports that Eto’o was going to pull out of the World Cup, although he has now been named in the final 23 man squad. Recent results have been a little disappointing – consecutive draws with Georgia and Slovakia, and they have been struggling for goals lately.

Bet: Portugal to win @ 1.64
Bet: Portugal to keep a clean sheet @ 1.91

Final Result: Portugal 3 - 1 Cameroon

Holland v Ghana

Holland have been impressed recently, and are becoming many people’s outside tip for success in South Africa. They are unbeaten since losing to Australia in a friendly shortly after Euro 2008, and have only lost twice since the beginning of that year. A solid performance against Mexico last week confirmed their ambitions for the tournament, and they are expected to name a strong line-up for this friendly, with the likes of Robin van Persie, Rafael van der Vaart and Wesley Sneijder all starting.

Ghana have been hit hard by the news that Michael Essien will miss the tournament. They are also without their first choice keeper for this match, and face an uphill battle to get anything out of this game.

Bet: Holland -1.5AH @ 1.92

Final Result: Holland 4 - 1 Ghana

Slovenia v New Zealand

Slovenia are a relatively strong defensive team, although they do not regularly score a large number of goals. They shocked the Russians to reach the World Cup, and will fancy their chances to follow England through from the group stages.

New Zealand have surprised people recently, with a victory against Serbia following on from an impressive performance against the Australians. Whilst not being the strongest side going forwards, they have become a difficult team to break down, and will make things very difficult for any opposition team.

Bet: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.85

Norway v Ukraine

Norway beat Montenegro recently, although they looked relatively unimpressed in the process. They missed a number of decent chances, and needed a late winner to clinch victory.

Ukraine have beaten Lithuania 4-0 and Romania 3-2 in the past week, but travel to Norway with none of their regular strikers, and without their recognised free-kick expert.

There are unlikely to be many goals in this game, and Ukraine, whilst traditionally strong at home, are not the best travellers.

Bet: Norway to keep a clean sheet @ 2.75

Final Result: Norway 0 - 1 Ukraine
