<1.43> <3.62> <6.50>

Spain have enough quality to win this one. Strike duo Torres and Villa are probably one of the best in the world in terms of individual quality. Supported by Silva, Xavi, Iniesta and hopefully Fabregas, this Spanish team can cut through defences easily. Their task tonight is made easier by the absence of playmaker Arshavin (suspension) and Pogrebnyak (injury), both key players in the Russian lineup. One would be very tempted to splash money on Spain, but the Russians are quite hard to break down with Igor Akinfeev in goal. I still think Spain would win, just don't throw your entire life savings into this bet.

- Roland's predictions: $10 on Spain @ 1.43 = $14.30
$5 on Spain -1.5 @ 2.50 = $12.50

well roland seems pretty confident about spain. i think spain will win too, but i will not be so bold to risk $15 on what is a very tough match-up in the shape of spain. odds for a spain win dropped from 1.63 to 1.43, which is ominous considering the same thing happened for france against romania, a match that i decided not to tip. i still think as roland said, that spain have too much quality, and so i'll go for a spain win. not as much money though, i'm playing it safe.

- Eddy's prediction: $5 on spain @ 1.43 = $7.15
