Germany vs Ghana Betting Pick
Germany put on a more than impressive display in their group opener in a 4-0 win over Portugal and they are big betting favorites facing a Ghana squad that needs a win to stay alive for a chance at the last 16. After the win over Portugal Argentina soccer legend Diego Maradona stated about the German squad, “They’re so good it’s scary.”
Bovada has Germany as the big World Cup betting favorite with odds posted at -302 with Ghana at +945 and a draw line at +483.
Ghana lost to the USA 2-1 in their group opener and they gave up a late goal after tying the score 1-1 in the second half. In the match they gave up a goal after only 32 seconds of play and it is pretty obvious they need to get off to a better start in this match.
Germany has faced Ghana twice before winning both while scoring seven goals and only conceding one.
Germany won the time of possession battle in the win over Portugal and while they had fewer shots they still scored 4 goals. Coming into the tournament the one worry for Germany was their offense, but in the opener Thomas Müller had a hat trick.
Ghana had their chances against USA after the Americans played a defensive match after the early goal and while they did tie the game in the second half they need to do better at capitalizing on scoring chances. This is especially the case facing Germany, who has a great defense and midfield.
Germany is simply too talented all over the pitch and they will have an easy time beating Ghana and punching their ticket to the round of 16.
