Colombia vs Ivory Coast Odds and Pick
Colombia and Ivory Coast both won their opening matches and a win by either will likely mean a round on the round of 16. Colombia is the betting favorite in the match and with good reason since they have a great attack in their opening group match they won 3-0 facing Greece, who is a team that is led by their, supposed, great defense.
Bovada has Colombia posted with World Cup betting odds of +110 with Ivory Coast at +275 and a draw line of +240.
This is the first ever meeting between these two squads.
Even without injured star striker Radamel Falcao Colombia’s offense did not skip a beat in their 3-0 win over Greece. The Greeks had their chances, but the Colombia defense played well and GK David Ospina kept a clean sheet.
Ivory Coast’s defense has their work cut out for them and in the Greece match three difference players scored in Pablo Estífer, Teófilo Antonio, and James David Rodríguez Rubio.
Ivory Coast was down 1-0 to Japan before scoring two goals within a minute and a half by Wilfried Bony and Gervinho in the second half gave the squad the important three points. Didier Drogba did not start in the match, but the Ivory Coast came alive when he came in and Colombia has to mark him well, as it would be a surprise if the former Chelsea striker did not start.
If Colombia can thwart Drogba and Yaya Toure they should be in good shape.
Both squads are attacking ones, but Colombia has more weapons and they will win this match and get to the round of 16 for this first time since 1990.
