Why Should I Bet On Uruguay vs Russia?
Uruguay and Russia were the first teams at the World Cup to qualify for the round of 16. In some ways, this is a more impressive achievement for the hosts given the atrocious run of form they were on coming into the World Cup. When they square off at the Samara Arena, the pressure will be off and a few key players rested. William Hill have priced a draw at 3.00 and that is the way to go here.
Uruguay vs Russia Preview
Very few could have predicted that Russia would have the luxury of resting their star men with qualification wrapped up with a game to go. In fairness, the Russians have looked organised and are using the atmosphere of playing a World Cup at home to maximum advantage. It is very good for the World Cup that the hosts are through and they come up against a Uruguayan side that still looks a bit undercooked.
