<2.10> <2.98> <3.15>

i'd like to thank the african nations for helping me during this olympics. ivory coast and nigeria have contributed to some serious earnings during this tournament. but looking at current matchups, i think nigeria has the quality to bring an over-achieving belgium back down to earth. belgium might have impressed many with their 3-2 win over italy despite having vermaelen sent off early on. however, therein lies the key. vermaelen will be suspended for this match, and coupled with vincent kompany already being called back by hamburg, i feel a place in the final will be one step too far for belgium. i'm tipping nigeria, as i feel the likes of odemwingie and anichebe will have too much for a belgian defence missing their two top-class defenders.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on nigeria @ 2.10 = $10.50
$5 on nigeria -1.5 @ 4.85 = $24.25
$5 on nigeria to qualify @ 1.60 = $8.00
