South Korea could climb to Group H’s top spot by defeating Ghana. That’s if Uruguay manages to defeat Portugal. On the other hand, Ghana will try to get its first victory in a World Cup since 2010. I think that’s the recipe for a highly entertaining game.
Let’s check the latest World Cup odds, stats, injury reports, and World Cup lines for South Korea vs Ghana. We’ve plenty of World Cup betting odds for you to consider.
Draw 1-1 (+600)
First of all, we’re talking about similar forces. Disciplined teams that like to play on the counterattack. Son Heung-min, Lee-Kang-in, Na Sang-ho, Andre Ayew, Inaki Williams, Mohammed Kudus, are some of the players that will be on the field. What do they’ve in common? Speed.
Ghana drew in three of its last five official matches. Two of those draws were against Nigeria, allowing them to seal their ticket for the World Cup. On the other hand, South Korea drew in two of its last five matches. Here’s another thing they have in common, they never give up.

Ghana to Score Last (+125)
Ghana is a well-balanced team. However, the Black Stars aren’t known for taking initiative. The last three times they lost, including the fast-paced match against Portugal, they fell behind. That also includes a defeat against Japan, a similar team to South Korea.
As for the Tigers of Asia, they scored first in three of their last five games, including a victory over Cameroon, a similar team to Ghana.
In this case, you could win $125 per every $100 wagered on them. In other words, the risk isn’t very high.
51-60 Minutes Time of First Goal Brackets (+400)
As mentioned before, I expect the match to finish 1-1. That gives us plenty of time for the first goal to be scored. Hey, just watch the game between Iran and Wales, in which the first goal wasn’t scored until the 98th minute. I don’t think we’ll have to wait that long on Monday, but the first half will end with a goalless draw, just as it happened in two of Ghana’s last three games. Let’s not forget that we’re talking about the WC, so teams are allowed to be a bit nervous at first and change their strategy as time progresses.
