Duff here – I think of myself as somewhat of a prognosticator, so here’s your World Cup betting tips for Thursday, June 17:

Nigeria V Greece

This is the game for eventual third place in Group B. Despite the thrashing they’re getting at the hands of Argentina, South Korea will find a way through to the round of sixteen, behind Messi and friends. Nigeria should prove too strong for a Greek team that is in tough at this world cup. Unless the Greeks completely outwork Nigeria I see another win for an African team. FINAL – Nigeria 2, Greece 1.

France V Mexico

Clearly the game of the day, and the loser is surely out of the running for first or second in Group A. Neither team looked great in their first games, with Mexico tying the host country and France and Uruguay battling to a scoreless draw. France has no right to be in Africa save for a handball against the hard luck Irish in qualifying, but I think they run that good fortune into a victory today. Another tie isn’t out of the question, but I see a talent-laden France besting the Mexicans today. FINAL – France 2 Mexico 1
