2014 World Cup in Soccer 1/8 Finals Special Bet: Parlay Double

thWe have a favorable spot here today. We have a French team who is playing a good and organized soccer for a change against the lucky qualifier from Africa – Nigeria. The French dominated their both games opening their  World Cup 2014 campaign. They beat weak Honduras capitalizing on each of the 3 shots on target scoring 3 goals (3-0).  Scored another 5 goals on 12 shots on target against the Swiss while missing a penalty and also have a goal with a whistle of the ref to end the game which was subsequently disallowed (502). They showed up with substitutes for a third meaningless game against Ecuador making money for Vegas with 0-0 draw and now have a chance to redeem themselves against Nigeria who is still asking themselves how did they get here by winning a single game against Bosnia Herzegovina. Not that the Africans are so bad, it’s the French that are a dominant force in this game as Nigeria lacks intensity on offense and can only show a brilliance here and there against the teams that playing without tactical discipline like Argentina who already qualified prior to the game against the Nigerians (3-2 Argentina). The lack of intensity was obvious against Iran and also against Bosnia Herzegovina who was mistreated by referee and got the short end of the stick in both games – against Argentina and Nigeria. Therefore I see the French advance easily by winning this game in a regulation time.

Germany against Algeria is a second leg of our parlay and although, and may be because of the Algerian’s win in 1982 World Cup in Spain – the Germans will be taking a fighter squad from North Africa very seriously from the beginning. Thomas Muller and the Co will dominate Algeria and will finish the story in a regulation time as well.  The Germans’ efficiency stats show a slight decline with each game played 12 -7-4 (12 shots on Goal, 7 on target, 4 goals) against  Portugal (4-0), 10-4-2 against Ghana (2-2), and 10-6-1 against USA (1-0). But we have to take into a consideration that against Klinsmann’s USA they did not really played with all their might.
