It took eight matches into the World Cup until we saw the first total go over the number with Germany pounding Australia 4-0. If looking for value on Switzerland against Spain, wait until the day of the match to bet on it because when the sports books put in the final results of all 15 games, the risk from all the parlays are going to be overwhelming as that will be the last game posted from the first wave of games.
Many books will look to eliminate their risk by selling the Swiss at a price nearly doubled from what they opened at. Keep that in mind in your next foray into the second wave of matches.
Also, to get maximum betting excitement on the matches throughout the day, visit the M Resort for their In-Running wagering. The folks in Europe have been doing it for some time and actually bet more on the matches during the event than what is handled prior.
Depending on the flow of the match, a bettor can really get some value, allowing you to press or hedge initial bets. The M will have every match available for betting in this format.
One last thing, Go USA!
