Share USA V SLOVENIA Betting Tips (World Cup June 19): What looks like another dour game on paper as the USA take on Slovenia and I'll be revising my strategy a little from now on (which probably means the WC will break out into a goal fest!). The USA in my eyes are a very underestimated team.....

...and I'd fancy them to just edge a closely contested game. They gave England a good game on saturday and to be honest, that didn't surprise me. They have been doing a lot of altitude training and were also here last year where they performed very well in the Confederations cup. Having watched Slovenia in their first match, they looked very ordinary and neither team (on paper) look like they will pose a big goal threat. USA to nick it by the odd goal looks the value for me in this 1.

  1. I think tomorrow we should go on ghana victory + Gyan goalscorer as he been showing great form in club and NT team ?

    Lets get some luck back, i follow ur tips for a long time and im just shock with that u r runnin so bad :(

  2. Usually, I'd say that looks a decent bet but I can't say with any confidence just now whether 7/2 (PP) justifies a bet.

    Goals seem to be extraordinarily hard to come by due to the altitude, the new ball and the general negativity of the sides.

    I did fancy a score win double with VanPersie/Holland as good value @ 11/8 and a win for Denmark @ 13/8 v Cameroon as a decent price but I can't bring myself to back either.

    The Bettingzone and most other top sites are having a bit of a nightmare too, it's just not set up for profitable betting, the bookies have every angle covered and they are getting away with prices that are simply robbery...

  3. got some nice result but unfortunately i did not really follow their tips.
    Im a bit afraid betting on a goalscorer witn less than 2/1, as i lost all of them so far. Midlefields or defenders seem to be scoring more than usual, but bookers give bad odds for that and exchangers are hard to match.
    Maybe u should give a try on Rugby Union?
