The last of the football before we wind down for the summer and once again there are some good value bets around to try and finish the season on a high note. Notable games are Brazil over in Uruguay where they will do really well to grab a win, and Ireland's game over in Bulgaria is a massive game in that group where Bulgaria must win to get back in it.
-3pts Bulgaria corner handicap (-1) vs Rep Ireland @ 11/10 (bet365) as mentioned, a must win game for Bulgaria. Expect Ireland to sit back and play for a draw as usual.
-1pt Stilian Petrov anytime goalscorer vs Ireland @ 13/2 (coral, extrabet)plays a much more advanced role for the Bulgarian national side. Also a threat from set pieces.
-1pt Ireland vs Bulgaria draw/draw half/fulltime @ 9/2 (william hill)could be a tight affair if an early goal doesn't go in
-2.5pts over 2.5 goals Uruguay vs Brazil @ 6/5 (extrabet) Should be end to end game with top strikers on show and Forlan in the form of his life
-2pts Diego Forlan anytime scorer vs Brazil @ 11/5 (general) Brazil will concede a lot of chances to Uruguay and with Forlan in this form he's likely to take 1 (or more)
-1pt Diego Forlan to score brace @ 14/1 (paddypower)
0.5pts Forlan hat-trick @ 80/1 (paddypower)
-1pt wincast - Forlan to score/Uruguay to win @ 4/1 (bluesquare, paddypower)A Uruguay win is not as unlikely as some think and if they do win, surely Folan will be on the scoresheet. Twice the odds of an outright win.
