    Here's my World Cup futures. Nothing real shocking here that others haven't predicted throughout the Internet. I've grouped them by units played. My thought process is this:

    --Germany, Brazil and France are rightful favorites. If everything goes to plan, Germany has the easiest road, with Brazil and France on the other side of the bracket. I'm concerned about Brazil, however. They have a tendency to choke in group stages, and if they finish second would face a group-winning Germany in the first round. Finally, if that happens, then France has the easy path to the finals.
    --I like England, Belgium and Colombia as longshots. England and Belgium should cruise through their group, which also includes Tunisia and Panama. One of those teams will get Colombia and the other Group H advancing country. I am hoping to have two of these three countries in the quarterfinals, and then can hedge against them if necessary.
    --I like Morocco, Peru, Iceland and Costa Rica as live dogs to advance to the knockout stage. Peru (Group C) and Iceland (Group D) have the best chances. Peru is a team on the rise that played very well through qualifying. Iceland is somehow media darlings yet still underrated. Morocco could sneak past perennially overrated Portugal if the Portuguese are still looking back at a loss to Spain. Costa Rica has the best goalie in Keylor Navas and a group that includes the methodical Swiss and Serbia (chances to win 1-0) and the chokeable Brazil.
    --Playing Peru, Morocco and Iceland to go over point totals, coinciding with my thought that they advance. They could not advance and still hit the point totals. Panama can beat Tunisia; I think at +150 I'll get better odds here than once they play in the final match of the group stage.

    THURSDAY
    Russia/Saudi Arabia U2 +122, 1 unit

    Expecting a dull, tight match with Russia scoring a hard-fought goal to win the opener. If you want to get gutsy, Russia 1, Saudi Arabia 0 is +410.

    So are the Russians better than expected or the Saudis even worse than expected?

    Morocco -.5 +128/Iran, 2 units
    Portugal +.5 -118/Spain, 1 unit

    Republic of Ireland also plays Friday. I will probably have plays from there in the morning.
