<5.75> <3.65> <1.47>

Spain are too good. Sweden are not too bad but star player Ibrahimovic has a swollen knee and I hope he'll be manhandled by Puyol's clumsiness and goes out injured in the first 10 minutes. It's going to be a Spain win for me, seeing as how I have 1) Money on them to top the group and 2) Money on them to win Euro 2008. Oh and Villa's fractured finger from hugging Torres (wtf?) won't keep him out, so don't worry about Spain not firing on all cylinders. Olof Mellberg is a rock in defence so I would not take the handicap. Zlatan Ibrahimovic can suddenly conjure some magic and score some wonder goal so I'm not taking the handicap. My point: the handicap is dangerous, just go for a Spain win and get some quick cash.

- Roland's prediction: $10 on Spain @ 1.47 = $14.70

I think i'll agree with roland here. spain look to be in good form, as they demolished russia in their opening match, and that is never an easy feat. a win for spain here would all but seal qualification form them, ahead of their last match with "THE SHITKICKERS", greece. also, their goal difference should they win this one, will be better than the rest even if they do lose to greece, so i think they will want to wrap up qualification quick. i think sweden's defence is not good enough to deal with the varied threats offered by spain, and so i'm going for a spain win.

- Eddy's prediction: $10 on spain @ 1.47 = $14.70
$5 on spain to win at HT @ 1.95 = $9.75
