2022 World Cup Betting Odds, Picks & Predictions: Portugal vs. Switzerland
Portugal vs. Switzerland (Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail; 10 p.m.)
Switzerland notched a 3-2 victory over Serbia on Friday to punch their ticket to the Round of 16. As for Portugal, a 2-0-1 effort was good enough for them to win Group H and keep their ambitions of World Cup glory alive. The sportsbooks see Portugal as a -110 favorite while Switzerland is +330 and the draw is +245.
You’d have to go back to 2006 to find the last time Portugal found itself advancing through the Round of 16 – a fourth-place finish in Germany. I think they get the monkey off their back this time around and push through to the next round. They have two of the most talented forwards in the world with Cristiano Ronaldo (free agent) and João Félix (Atlético Madrid), and I expect them to keep a steady attack on Switzerland for a full 90 minutes. If Portugal can get out to a lead, I don’t know that the Swiss have enough offensive talent to stay in this game. Let’s ride with Portugal to take care of business in regular time.
Bet: Portugal Moneyline (-110 via DraftKings)
