The second round of group stage matches concludes on Monday as Groups G and H take the field once again. Brazil will be reduced to their match against Switzerland while Portugal and Uruguay meet in today’s match at 2 pm ET.

South Korea vs Ghana

8 a.m. ET Monday, FS1

South Korea will be in a great position to enter their final game against Uruguay with a win over Ghana. The Ghana side’s loss to Portugal was a thrilling five-goal game and they will have to be better at defending against Heung-Min Son’s South Korea. Under 2.5 goals it’s at -190, so we’ll take South Korea for the win.

Brazil vs. Switzerland

11 a.m. ET Monday, Fox

Brazil will be without Neymar and Danilo due to ankle injuries but this is one of the deepest teams in the tournament. Switzerland’s long prospects are tempting given the turbulence of the World Cup so far, but Brazil will have to mind business. Under 2.5 goals at -115 is our game.

Portugal vs. Uruguay

2 p.m. ET Monday, Fox

Much like the United States on Friday, a tie isn’t the worst thing in the world for Uruguay, especially if South Korea loses to Ghana. But Uruguay want to stay on four points after Monday’s matches while Portugal can advance to the knockout stages with a win. We pass 2.5 targets at +115.
