World Cup 2010, Netherlands vs Brazil, Uruguay vs Ghana quarter-finals

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Brazil vs Holland is the first quarter-final in the World Cup 2010 and we cannot ask for much more. Luis Fabiano to score first in the match pays 5.50 while Holland hopes for some more Arjen Robben magic.


Brazil is the favorite at 1.95 but the draw at 3.30 is something to consider maybe with Holland’s strong defense and form winning twelve of their last twelve competitive matches. Holland has also lost only one of their last twelve meetings with South American opponents.


Today’s quarter-final matches Friday 2nd July:

16.00 Netherlands vs Brazil

20.30 Uruguay vs Ghana

World Cup 2010, it’s time for quarter-finals!

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

I had the bet of the tournament I thought when I backed France at 21 times the money, but what a silly joke that was when this team continued to show how a lack of attitude and too much foie grais in the stomachs make you suffer, while Italy had a sinking ship without a skipper written all over them from day 1 to be honest. So 13 times the money was no value at all when they crashed out in the group phase. But I have Germany to hope for at the same odds as Italy but they could easily be out when they face Argentina in the quarter-finals, even if I fancy Germany´s chances as long they can reach the same heights as against Australia and England.


So what do you do to spice up the last 8 drama? You bet again, of course. With the help of Steve Boyle at the bookie department I got our winner odds in percentage and that is interesting reading for sure. It shows how long way these teams have to go. Brazil and Spain are on 24 percentages each and Argentina is on 17 percentages. Germany has an 11 percent chance to win while outsiders Uruguay, Ghana and Paraguay just have a really small chance to go all the way.


Wow. So have a look and place your bets. It is only eight matches left, and as I always says: enjoy it while it lasts.

World Cup 2010, Paraguay vs Japan, Spain vs Portugal [video]

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Paraguay against Japan will be an interesting clash as both teams impressed in the group stage. Paraguay managed to draw against Italy and win against Slovakia while Japan won against both Cameroon and Denmark. Both previous meetings ended goal less and Paraguay are favorites if it goes to extra time. Japan had two amazing free kicks against Denmark and they are 5.0 to score any goal from outside the box in this game. Spain and Portugal also clashes tonight and this will be a close afair if you ask us. Spain have won 9 of their last 10 games and Portugal are unbeaten in their last 19 games. Will it be decided in extra time or even penalties? If so, Portugal have never lost a penatly shoot-out.


Today’s matches Tuesday 29th June:

20:30  Spain – Portugal

World Cup 2010, Netherlands vs Slovakia, Brazil vs Chile [video]

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Holland takes on Slovakia and the dutch are clear favorites but we shouln’t underestimate Slovakia, they will play without pressure in this match. Slovakia will have a chance if they manage to get this game to penalties as Holland have been involved in five penalty shootouts but only won one. The winners in this match will face the winner between Brazil and Chile. Brazil have won the last six meetings and scored no less than 25 goals in these matches. Will Brazil win again or can Chile break the their winning streak?

World Cup 2010, Germany vs England, Argentina vs Mexico [video]

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

Germany against England today at 16.00 CET, a clash that everyone is looking forward to. England is unbeaten for the last six matchs but they have just scored twice so far in South Africa. Rooney has not scored yet in the play offs and the question is what he can come up with against the German defence. Germany have their youngest squad for almost eighty years, a factor that maybe could work in their advantage. Will it be another thriller decided in penalties? Argentina are favorites against Mexico and they also won their last meeting. Messi still stands without a goal in the play offs, will he finally find the net?


Today’s matches Sunday 27th June:

16:00  Germany – England

20:30  Argentina – Mexico



World Cup 2010, Uruguay vs South Korea, USA vs Ghana [video]

Friday, June 25th, 2010

The World Cup 2010 in South Africa has reached the last 16 and first out today is Uruguay against South Korea.  Uruguay didn’t concede a single goal in the group stage and has impressed so far, the even scored more goals than Argentina during the qualify. South Korea scored five goals but conceded six in the group stage and looks a bit shaky in defence. Uruguay has won both previous meetings and with Forlán in great shape this will be a difficult task for South Korea. USA and Ghana also clashes tonight and Ghana hasn’t impressed so far. 2.70 on USA seems like a good price?


Today’s matches Saturday 26th June:

16:00  Uruguay – South Korea

20:30  USA – Ghana



World Cup, North Korea vs Ivory Coast, Portugal vs Brazil, Chile vs Spain, Switzerland vs Honduras [Video]

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

In Group G Ivory Coast have to beat North Korea heavily and hope that Brazil beats Portugal to qualify. Drogba plays his last World Cup and North Korea looks for revange after 0-7 against Portugal. Portugal and Brazil clashes and Brazil will top the group with a draw and Portugal only needs one point to qualify.


Group H gives us Switzerland against Honduras and Chile versus Spain. Switzerland must better the Spanish result to qualify and Honduras must win and hope that Chile beats Spain. Chile only need one point to qualify and Spain will go through if they win and a draw might be enought.


Today’s matches Friday 25th June:

16:00 North Korea – Ivory Coast

16:00 Portugal – Brazil

20:30 Chile – Spain

20:30 Switzerland – Honduras

World Cup 2010, Przemysaw Ziemnicki aims for the Olympics in London 2012

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

We spent the Thursday morning a bit different in Cape Town heading to a truly atmospheric boxing gym together with one of our 14 Expekt.com winners during this World Cup adventure. On trips like this you get to meet our customers for real and the 14 winners here have enjoyed every minute – they have watched some games, had plenty of good food and on their free-time they have done all excursions you can name almost. After all, this is South Africa.


But our Polish winner Przemysaw Ziemnicki is a bit different compared to other winners that I have met during the years. Przemysaw Ziemnicki is good on betting, but he is even better on kick-boxing and has won a lot of titles in that field. Now he is aiming to reach the Olympics in London 2012 in boxing and maybe you will see him there in the ring in middle-weight. It could be for Poland or even Austria, Przemysaw Ziemnicki haven´t decided yet if he reaches London.


Przemysaw has been doing two sessions each day in the gym at the hotel. I have done three and am proud of that, but if you aim for Olympic glory you have a bit different agenda I suppose. So this morning we followed Przemysaw Ziemnicki to a gym in Cape Town where he worked-out and sparred four rounds with a solid South African pro. I tell you that Przemysaw Ziemnicki can throw some punches and if we get into the wrong corners around Long Street here in Cape Town we know who want to have as a back-up. He is really nice and well-spoken as well and I will for sure follow his path to London. I really hope he makes it.


This afternoon we head to the Waterfront and then to see Cameroon-Netherlands. We saw Portugal thrash North Korea 7-0 and hope for some more goals now. Danish winner Rasmus is probably looking for an over-bet I guess. And on Saturday the last 16 matches starts with England vs Germany as the big one. I will for sure watch it.
