Betting Tips

For the win this should be an easy call: Costa Rica to win at odds of 6/4. This is a good payout for a team that has proven they are a threat in the tournament and are running high for 3 games against 3 very tough teams. That is a big enough edge over Greece which were extremely lucky to have made it to the next round. They might have won the Euro 2004 but their times of being lucky or being discredited are over. Costa Rica know who they are playing and Greece have shown they can try to suffocate any team with defense first football. The over 2.5 goals is a nice payout but we can easily see this game going scoreless into extra time or being 1-1 or 2-0 for Costa Rice. Greece struggle to score goals and are not the easiest team to play against either. Under 2.5 goals will probably happen but the odds are not good enough to bet on.

Prop Bets Costa Rica vs Greece

Prop bets are certainly more interesting to bet on than just who will win or if there will be a draw. If you think you can pick the exact score then you got some interesting odds to choose from:
  • 1-0 Costa Rica win 5/1 odds
  • 2-0 Costa Rica win 9/1 odds
  • 1-1 draw 5/1 odds
For goal scorer odds, wait until the starting lineups are announced. So far these odds are:
  • Joel Campbell goal 5/2 odds
  • Georgios Samaras goal 7/2 odds
  • Bryan Ruiz goal 3/1 odds
Picking a goal scorer is usually a fun bet to make but in this game it is probably a risky one. Not expecting a lot of goals between these 2 teams so lay off this bet.
