Everybody loves World Cup Qualifiers and Tuesday’s internationals kickoff in Asia with a slew of games, including South Korea visiting Uzbekistan with a 9am EDT kickoff.
South Korea has won five of its last six, with its only loss coming to Spain in a friendly a few months back. However, one of its victories in that span was against Uzbekistan, which was a 4-2 home win in Jeonju. A big reason for South Korean's good results is because its goalscoring ability has been roaring as of late, with seven goals for in its last two games, and the team has scored in an impressive 11 straight matches.
A Korean win on the road is currently listed at 1.95, while the draw-away win in the Halftime/Fulltime offering is being issued at 4.50.
The Over 2.5 is being offered at 2.20, which is a nice price point for a game that is expected to produce goals given Uzbekistan’s close to must-win situation, and also because there have been three or more goals in seven of nine all-time matches between the two sides.
The former Soviet nation has only a single point from its first two encounters with Lebanon and a 1-0 home loss to Iran. A defeat here could really put it out of reach of the mighty Korean and Iranian squads in the run to qualifying for the next round. It then must be worrying that Uzbekistan has only beaten Korea once in their nine matches against each other, with that coming in their first game way back in 1994.
A draw result is slated at 3.30, while the Uzbeki win would pay out a handsome 4.00, though you can also go for the 1.80 on the double-chance if you think Korea intend to sit back and take a point.
If you do feel Korea will edge out Uzbekistan, then take a look at some of the Winning Margin bets which see the Koreans paying 3.50 to win by a goal, 5.50 to do it by a pair, and a juicy 10.00 if they do it by three goals. The Koreans have scored at least two or more in four straight against Uzbekistan.
