Denmark v. Portugal – European Championship Qualification – Group I – 10.13.2014
Portugal is very overrated. They always struggle in qualification, and usually advance through play-offs. They were horrible in the World Cup. Denmark and Portugal are the favorites to advance from the group. Portugal lost to Albania at home in round one of matches. I like Denmark to at least draw, if not win outright. Pick: Denmark +.5 at -150 (5Dimes).
Germany v. Ireland – European Championship Qualification – Group D – 10.13.2014
The defending World Cup champions were shockingly defeated in the last round by Poland 0-2. Germany dominated the match, but was unlucky. Germany and Ireland were in the same WC qualification group, and Germany won both games – 3-0 at home and 6-1 in Ireland. I think Germany will be extra motivated coming off the loss, and will comfortably beat Ireland tonight by more than one goal. Pick: Germany -1.5 at -146 (5Dimes).
Finland v. Romania – European Championship Qualification – Group F – 10.13.2014
This matchup has all the makings of a draw. Romania is one of the favorites to advance from the group. Finland has never beaten Romania. In their eight H2H matches, Romania is W6 D2. If either team is going to win tonight, it will be Romania. Pick: Romania pk +113 (5Dimes).
