RUssia, apart from shooting from distance, have no real attacking threat. No obvious threat at a set piece exists, either, and the front men seem short of confidence and goals. 15-8 Saudi are on the handicap (+1) at Laddies... and draw no bet or draw/Saudi double chance should be considered if you don't have the balls to have faith in backing Saudi Arabia.
Having exhaustively gone through the Group A form (that was all I had time for!), clearly Uruguay will rampage through that group. It is a shame that Diego Rolan has missed out by way of omission, and VAR may prove to be an unwelcome liaison with the aggressive Uruguay style. However, they finished above Argentina and were unlucky to lose as many times as they did in qualifying so up to Even money in David Pluck's for them to win Group A is a sensational price (around the 4-5 or 8-11 mark from what I've seen elsewhere).
THat also brings in the forecast option of Saudi Arabia with Uruguay- it is a double digit price on offer again...
And I shall say good luck to you all and here is to a great month or so of betting and boozing!
