Everywhere you look on the TV, at almost every time of the day right now, there are matches.
Wednesday is no different, as the various tournaments continue around the world.
At the Women's World Cup, Group D will be decided, but it is the Scotland-Argentina match that could decide which team advances to the knockout rounds as a third-place team. Scotland knew coming in that this match would probably be the one it needed to win, and the team has just that chance. A win by Argentina would definitely send the country through to the Round of 16.
At the Copa America, Argentina is back in action, after it was stunned 2-0 in the opener by Colombia. The panic has started to set in, but a decisive victory over Paraguay could change the narrative, especially after tournament favorite Brazil was booed off the pitch in a 0-0 draw last night with Venezuela.
Colombia can all but win the group with a win over Qatar.
At the Gold Cup, Mexico will look to win Group A with a win over Canada.
In Norway, the NM Cup returns for the third round today. Since the picks went pretty well last time, there are 14 of the Round of 32 matches, and many have heavy favorites, just like last round.
For everyone that is new to betting, or may not know what the Asian handicap is, here is a quick explanatiom from AmericanGambler.com:
"With a quarter-goal handicap, that really means that your stake is being split in two. Half goes on the nearest whole number handicap, and half goes on the nearest half-goal handicap.
So if you see a handicap of -0.75, your bet splits in two. Half the stake goes on -0.5, and the other half on -1. The half-stake on -0.5 will either win or lose, as usual. If the winning margin is 1 to the favorite, then the other half of your bet pushes. Any two goal-plus win for the favorite means the whole bet wins."
