10:00AM-Soccer: Greece OR Nigeria

The World Cup continues today with a matchup between two Group B teams that will be trying to compete for at this point would at best be 2nd place in the group after each lost their opening match.  Nigeria was picked to finish second by some and Greece by others, but after one game both are hoping and praying that they can find a way to advance.  A win here would be a must for both teams, but how will this game turn out?

StreakFacts:

  • Greece is 13th in the FIFA world rankings
  • Nigeria is 21st in the FIFA world rankings
  • Greece had 3 wins, 2 draws, and a loss in qualifying
  • Nigeria had 3 wins and 2 draws in qualifying
  • A Nigeria win is even odds
  • Greece win/draw is favored at -120

Tonto picks Nigeria to win the match * (1 out of 5 stars)

The lack of goal scoring in this tournament has me worried anytime I pick against the draw option, but I really feel that Nigeria and Ghana are the only two African Nations who should still advance.  To do this, Nigeria will have to reverse the fate they suffered in their opening game against top seeded Argentina.  Greece looked awful and I don’t think they will score in this tournament.  Fufana Fufana!
