Uruguay takes on England in the crucial World Cup Group D game in Sao Paulo. The game kicks off at 3 p.m. Eastern time. Both teams need a win to have realistic chance of qualifying to the second round, whereas a tie will keep both teams alive, for now. It’s the kind of key game like this that World Cup betting is made for.

LIVE ODDS:

England 9/1

Uruguay 1/2

Tie 5/2

So here are the odds for this game you need to know:


1. England Is the Favorite

There is not much value out there if you want to bet on England for the win. The best odds you’ll find are the 19/20 that’s going at Sky Bet. Although, historically at World Cup’s, England hasn’t done well when it got the favorites tag.


2. Uruguay Is a Better Bet

The Uruguayan team are the marginal underdogs for this game, but it might be more fun to bet on them. You can get odds of 14/5 at Winner. The odds on Uruguay may change dramatically once the bookmakers get a look at how fit Luis Suarez is for Uruguayans.


3. England Needs to Win

If Italy beats Costa Rica on June 20, then the Italians will have qualified for the second round. That means Italy may rest players for their final group game with Uruguay. England needs to take advantage today, against a potentially shaky Uruguay team. That result will eliminate Uruguay and all but guarantee England’s passage into the last 16. With that in mind, a tie is an outside bet, being offered at nearly the same odds as a Uruguay win. The 13/5 odds at Tote Sport are the best we could find.


4. A 1-1 Tie Is the Favorite Result

With odds of 6/1 in most places, a 1-1 between these two is the favorite result. The best odds on the scoreline is 7/1 at Bet Fred. Expect England to score at least once at this game, considering Uruguay is without its best defender, Diego Lugano, who misses out through injury.


5. Luis Suarez Is the Second Favorite to Score First

Despite nobody knowing how injured Luis Suarez may be, the betting sites have installed him as the second favorite to score first. He’s as low as 4/1 with Bet Fred but as high as 32/5 with Bet Fair. The favorite to grab the firs goal is England and Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge. The best odds on him is 5/1 on Bet 365.

If you think this is the game where Wayne Rooney finally scores a World Cup goal, he’s going for 7/1 to get the first goal at Ladbrokes.
