International Friendlies Analysis of the Top Games On June 2nd
Paraguay +350 vs Japan -131
- When: Thursday, June 2 at 6:00 am ET
Based on recent records, Japan should absolutely blast Paraguay. The Japanese have won 4-of-5 with a draw.
On Nov. 16, Japan beat Oman 1-0. The Japanese followed up the victory with a 2-0 win versus China on Jan. 27. Feb. 1 saw a 2-0 win over Saudi Arabia followed by a 2-0 win against Australia on March 24. The Japanese drew versus Vietnam in their last.
Is that a sign things could go south for them in this? Maybe. Paraguay lost to Peru in their last on March 29. But before the loss, the underdog had dusted Ecuador 3-1. This happens in Japan but Paraguay has played the better opponents. Give the South American squad a chance.
Soccer Pick: Paraguay
Brazil -1 ½ +109 vs South Korea +1 ½ -151
- When: Thursday, June 2 at 7:00 am ET
Brazil is on a 3-match winning streak. The 2022 Qatar World Cup favorites beat Paraguay, Chile, and Bolivia all by 4-0 scores.
But this match happens in South Korea. The Koreans lost their last match versus United Arab Emirates 1-0. No doubt, Brazil’s second team can beat the Koreans. But at +1 ½, we can’t go past South Korea playing their best soccer because the match happens in Seoul.
Soccer Pick: South Korea +1 ½
Nigeria +270 vs Ecuador -109
- When: Thursday, June 2 at 8:30 pm ET
In their last international friendly on May 28, Nigeria played great, losing to Mexico in a 2-1 game. The Nigerians take on Ecuador on Thursday.
Ecuador has qualified for the World Cup. The Ecuadorians know to have any shot of moving to the knockout stage, they must get much better. Expect Ecuador to put their best foot forward on June 2. The Ecuadorians win.
Soccer Pick: Ecuador
Uruguay +171 vs Mexico +146
- When: Thursday, June 2 at 10:00 pm ET
Uruguay versus Mexico should be a highly entertaining match. Both teams have reason to believe they win this contest.
Road team Uruguay has won 4 straight. The Uruguayans required winning 4 straight to ensure a World Cup berth. Like Uruguay, Mexico is on a streak.
The Mexicans have won their last couple of FIFA World Cup qualifying matches. El Tri had to beat Honduras and El Salvador to ensure they got a bid to the WC. We can expect both teams to sort of relax in this match.
By relax, we mean neither will put their top players in harms way. The odds on both are fair. Mexico has the slight edge because they’re at home, but El Tri rarely goes all out in a meaningless contest. Uruguay gets the nod.
Soccer Pick: Uruguay
