Safest bet is Portugal without a shadow of a doubt. They really will want to beat Angola for obvious reasons and I can't see them failing to do it comfortably.

People may have reservations after seeing T&T hold Sweden yesterday, but there's no comparison really. And their odds are slightly higher than Sweden's to beat T&T.

Heart goes for Holland over Serbia. Head tells me to stay away from it. I really want Holland to win so that the Argies have a hard game against Serbia. I need Holland to finish top to keep my dreams alive of making a huge amount of money. I already have Germany/Ecuador in a lot of bets, still retain my belief that Tunisia can finish 2nd above Ukraine, and that either Australia or Japan can topple Croatia for second place.

Mexico vs Iran is an interesting one. Heart plumps for Mexico, head tells me it is dodgy, because Mexico have not exactly been in good form of late. I don't rate Iran though, despite a lot of commentators suggesting they will be a tough nut to crack.

Will resist temptation, enjoy the football, and just stick with Portugal. Tomorrow there are some really interesting and potentially group-defining matches.

Small bet for me on Holland not to win @ 2.00.
Almost all our midfielders had injury troubles over the past few days (Sneijder, vd Vaart, vBommel, Cocu). Cocu and vBommel will probably play, but are very doubtfull for the full 90 mins.
Serbia are a team that sit back and wait for a counter opportunity. Exactly the style of play Holland have most difficulties to play against.

Under 2,5 and HT X are worth a shot as well imo.

I like 0-0 at 11/2 as a cover bet. I think I'm going to contradict what I said earlier and bet on the dutch. in terms of possession and penetration the dutch will be on top imo.

That's just fear mate :)

Angola are not used to big games. Portugal are. Angola only got through to the qualifying section with a narrow away goals victory over the mighty Chad. Portugal are used to major games, and only drew 3 of their qualifying games, all away from home. They scored 35 goals including a 7-1 thrashing of Russia, and conceded only 5. Whereas Angola scored 12 goals in 10 games.

I may even be bold and back a ht/ft portugal victory.

Most importantly, this is Portugal's easiest game of the group. They have a decent manager, and a world-class player in Ronaldo. He will destroy Angola by himself.

If I was a bookmaker I'd be offering 1.1 odds. If Portugal don't win this game I'll be extremely surprised to say the least.
