Odds, picks & predictions

Spain: -190
Draw: +310
Morocco: +600

Moneyline pick: Draw +310

Spain started the 2022 World Cup with a dominant 7-0 victory over Costa Rica. However, the last two matches didn’t follow the same script. Instead, Spain drew with Germany 1-1 and lost to Japan 1-2. The Spaniards were vulnerable to the counter attack in both matches, especially against Japan. Spain will look to control possession and build chances, but Morocco are capable of finding its own looks on the counter attack. The Moroccans are more than fine yielding possession, as they only had 33% of the ball in their 2-0 victory over Belgium and 41% in a 2-1 win over Canada.

Even though Spain have the better players while sitting No. 7 in FIFA’s World Rankings, Morocco’s style could create problems. This should be a tight match throughout, and taking Morocco to advance (+295) is also worth a look at DraftKings Sportsbook.
