Proceedings in World Cup Group D get underway when Uruguay take on Costa Rica in what is widely expected to be a cake-walk for The Sky Blue One in Fortaleza.
Costa Rica would do well to avoid finishing bottom of Group D with England and Italy the other teams involved and it's no surprise to see them as long odds outsiders for this match. Two-time World Cup winners Uruguay were not at their best in CONMEBOL qualification for Brazil 2014 and had to contest an intercontinental play-off to make the finals this time, but are nonetheless overwhelming favourites to succeed in this match.
Taking Uruguay to win with a clean sheet will add a level of value to your bet as most will leave the extremely short match odds alone in this encounter. A Correct Score bet of 3-0 to Uruguay may also be worthy of investment with the likes of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani expected to wreak havoc on the Ticos' defence and the attacking duo will dominate most punter's thoughts in the goalscorer markets. However, Christian Stuani may start up-front if head coach Óscar Tabárez opts to keep one or both of his prize assets fresh for more difficult matches and he will be available to back at bigger odds.
