South Korea vs Portugal Betting Odds

South Korea take on Portugal in their final group game at the world cup, and of the many teams South Korea has faced, this could be a trying task for the team from Asia. Portugal has shown they can progress in major tournaments previously, but with key men not showing their best domestic form, will the team be able to adapt and go on to win from behind if needed?

South Korea vs Portugal Matchday 1&2 Recaps:

When it comes to the World Cup 2022, Group H has thrown up some interesting fixtures, and it hasn't exactly been plain sailing for any team in the group. Uruguay vs South Korea was the first game in the group, and following that match, it was South Korea vs Ghana just four days later. Neither game was a particularly easy task for the South Asian powerhouse, especially as defence has never been their strongest asset.

For Portugal, performances have been hit and miss when it comes to major tournaments, with some of their biggest players blowing hot and cold, both in front of goal and in defence. Portugal vs Ghana was the opening game during their World Cup 2022 campaign, and this was followed by a second-round Portugal vs Uruguay game which saw many top-class players face off against each other in what many called the game of the group.

South Korea Portugal Betting Tips

There haven't been many head-to-head matches between South Korea and Portugal during the world cups, and when the two teams met previously in 2002, it was a cagey affair, with South Korea snatching a 1-0 win. Heading into this South Korea vs Portugal game, the drawn home side will be hoping that Son Heung-Min is back in the starting line-up, as they will need his attacking form to get past the group stages. However, his first team game time could be limited, which means we're heading more towards Portugal in the betting instead of the South Koreans.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been the catalyst behind many Portugal match wins. However, in South Korea vs Portgual, the striker may not get his day given he's not in the best of form for his club side. That said, Portugal still has a number of players who can turn the tide in a world cup game between the two teams, so we're going for a Portugal win as one of our top betting tips. But if you're looking for something a little more before kick-off, why not try a correct score bet of 3-0 to Portugal?

If you like the factor of Portugal to win to nil and you like to avoid both teams to score bets or correct score bets, why not go for something a little different? Instead of going for the full-time result, why not select a first-half result and place your bet on Portugal to be winning at half-time? Then you can watch the 2nd half with a potentially winning bet in your pocket.

South Korea vs Portugal Best Betting Odds

Double chance bets are always popular within our best odds betting markets as this offers either team to win the match or a draw. However, when it comes to Portugal's most recent form, we'd tend to edge caution if you're a fan of the score in both halves markets.

With those factors in mind, we think the best betting odds for this game fall in the total goals market. Over 2.5 goals is normally favoured, by most bettors, but with the attacking players in the Portugal lineup, we're pushing the boundaries one further to over 3.5 goals.
