Uruguay vs Colombia Betting Preview & Pick
Another exciting quarter final in the World Cup this year – Uruguay is facing Colombia. Latter is a team that have been unexpectedly solid and won all 3 of their group games scoring 9 goals and losing only 2. Check out our betting preview, prediction and best bookmakers to bet on this match with.
It seems that Uruguay will have a lot of trouble getting out of their group, after the draw was somewhat unlucky for them. They got two top European teams with them, England and Italy as well as Costa Rica who were considered as a team that have no chance on making it out of this group. Well, Uruguay’s situation got WAY worse after they lost 1:3 in their opening match to the aforementioned Ticos (Costa Rica).
I didn’t believe that this team will make it out of the group to be honest, but in their next 2 games they somehow managed to beat England (2:1) and Italy (1:0), getting the much needed second place in a finish spurt and facing Colombia.
Luis Suarez will be a massive loss for Uruguay, after he bite a player of Italy and got disqualified for rest of the World Cup. Yes, you read it right – he bite a player with his teeth. More on this story is available here http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/28023882
Uruguay aren’t considered as favorites in this match and that can be greatly seen in the betting lines on their win that are set by various bookmakers.

Colombian’s really showed outstanding performance in their group games winning all three of their games and scoring 9 goals. They obviously finished 1st in their group consisting of Greece, Japan, and Ivory Coast.
Colombia haven’t had the luckiest draw in regards to Top 16 round, since by winning this game, they will likely face World Cup favorites – Brazil. Truth be told, they can bite the hosts and take them down!
Radamel Falcao won’t participate in the game vs Uruguay, but even without him, Colombians are considered as favorites to win. They really look great in this World Cup so far and we can expect a stellar performance from them in this matchup. I expect to see them in the next round, where they will face the winner of Brazil vs Chile matchup.
Bookmakers have set Colombians as clear favorites of the match and expecting them to win in full time. Betting line is 2.00 (+100) on them.

Our Prediction & Picks
This one seems like an easy betting pick – Colombia to win. Betting odds are simply too good to pass on them, after seeing how both teams performed in their group matchups. Even more, Uruguay have lost their top scorer Luis Suarez, which will make it really tough for them to beat Colombians.
I would also expect a high scoring game, as Colombians have been great at scoring goals (9 in 3 games). I would suggest betting on over 2.5 goals line, set at 2.25 (+125) odds at Bovada.
