2:30PM-Soccer: South Africa OR Uruguay

The World Cup continues today with a matchup between two Group A teams that will be trying to compete for first place in the group after every team tied in their opening matches.  Uruguay was picked to finish second in the group while South Africa was picked to finish last.  Defying expectations on their home turf, South Africa managed a 1-1 draw in their opening game against Mexico and will look to take it to Uruguay who managed a scoreless draw with the top seeded French in their opening match.  This one should be close and will definitely be low scoring, but how will it turn out?


  • South Africa is ranked 83rd in the FIFA world rankings
  • Uruguay is ranked 16th in the FIFA world rankings
  • South Africa had 2 wins, 3 losses, and a draw in  2010 world cup qualifiers
  • Uruguay managed a 6-6-6 record in 2009 world cup qualifiers
  • Uruguay has +135 odds to win the match
  • South Africa has +215 odds to win

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

This is probably a bad pick because of the sheer quantity of draws out there, but the emotion for South Africa may not be able to carry them to a goal in this one.  I honestly believe that if Uruguay scores they will win, but even that is a big IF in the 2010 World Cup of Draws.

    If you have a win streak a big one id lay off this one,, but if I had to pick take the draw... more outs that way,,,,

  • Unfortunately South Africa got exposed pretty bad. I must say I was rooting for them and it was sad to see the goalie who has given so much sent off with a red card, virtually ending his World Cup.
