<9.50> <4.50> <1.25>

If Austria win, they stand a great chance of going through. If Germany wins, they will definitely go through. Both teams will want to go for this game. I'm siding Germany on this one because the Austrians play with a lot of heart, but not skill. Their inability to finish chances off have shown in the last few matches and it's proven to be their downfall. However, odds for Germany winning are pretty pathetic - outright is 1.25 and the handicap of -1.5 has dropped to 1.70. Germany all the way though, as apparently Podolski is going to be starting upfront replacing the ineffectual Mario Gomez, letting Ballack push forward and we know that's where he plays well in.

- Roland's prediction: $10 on Germany @ 1.25 = $12.50
$5 on Germany -1.5 @ 1.70 = $8.50
$5 on Over 2.5 @ 1.63 = $8.15

i agree with roland. germany all the way. it would be a major disaster for the germans to be knocked out at this stage, and i just cannot see it happening, much as i want it to. klose hasn't scored in this tournament yet, but he's quiet and efficient, so back him to score in this one.

- Eddy's prediction: $10 on germany @ 1.25 = $12.50

$5 on germany to win at HT @ 1.55 = $7.75
