As we say goodbye to those eliminated at the Group Stages The world cup group stages, we say hello to the round of 16 and Place-It now returns with a better method to help smile longer as you take your picks.

We have adjusted our selections so we can give a better option from our top bookmakers. This time we give you more options for your pick and have introduced categories, all to give you a better experience.

With effect from today we have introduced three categories based on the level of risk involved while taking a given pick. We felt this will guide you better through the process and also improve your chances to better picks.

We have introduced the Value-Picks; which considers games with a minimal risk of fluctuation in odds and a higher probability for the result to remain the same as selected, while the Regular-Picks are games with slightly low risk but have a small chance of fluctuations and it is likely for the odds to change with circumstances and hence, the tip and result may vary. While the Risky-Picks are games we advise you not to place bets on as per our research from different book makers.

The World Cup returns today after a moment of a day off and there will be some very Intriguing matchups at the Round of 16. With the Defending Champions already out just to confirm that the Syndrome is real who gets to the quarters?

Take a look at our picks for the weekend.


France v Argentina

*Both France and Argentina were not at their best during the Group Stages, but France have been above average and can send Argentina home this weekend.

However, what are surprises for?

Result: 2, GG, Over 2.5 – (Argentina to lead by first half)

Uruguay v Portugal

*Uruguay were quite silent during their first two group games but gradually rose up to put the Tournament’s hosts in order while Portugal were impressive during their first game, earning a draw in a six-goal thriller versus Spain.

The South Americans are a very mean side, and as Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez’s combination continue to struggle. Expect a close encounter, but Portugal will go through Russia.

Result: 2, GG – (Ronaldo to score/Possibility of being decided on penalties)

Spain v Russia

Russia join this stage on a very low key after losing their final game to Uruguay and will struggle against Spain – who also struggled to put together the personnel to draw against Iran. It’s the still will to power Spain through.

Result: 1, GG

Croatia v Denmark

*Croatia are one of the sides not many would look at as a serious World Cup contender simply because they are blinded by the favorites tag. But in this team lies enormous competitive edge and balance to see off any challenger and Denmark won’t be an exception.

Result: 1, (Possibility of a penalty incident)
