South Korea vs Ghana Betting Lines
South Korea: Discipline at its Best
Including the goalless draw against Uruguay, South Korea has lost 1 of its last 10 games in all competitions. Additionally, the Tigers of Asia finished with a clean sheet in six of those matches. I can’t think of a better word than discipline to describe this team.
Despite there were no goals, the match between the Tigers of Asian and Los Charruas was far from boring. South Korea finished with seven shots in total, while Uruguay finished with 10. Son Heung-min and Darwin Nunez didn’t stop running throughout the whole game.
South Korea played three friendly matches prior to the WC, one was against Cameroon, a team similar to Ghana. The Tigers of Asia won 1-0 thanks to Son, who scored in the first half. South Korea also won possession with 64 percent.
Head coach Paulo Bento is another huge reason to consider including South Korea in your soccer picks. Bento coached Portugal from 2010 to 2014, embracing a winning mentality and a competitive spirit, something he has tried to establish in the Tigers of Asia since 2018. Spoiler alert, he has done a great job.

Ghana: So Close…
Ghana made its debut against the betting online favorite to win Group H: Portugal. The Black Stars put up a good fight, enough for the first half to finish 0-0. Things got wild in the second, and Portugal ended up winning 3-2, but the African side could have scored the equalizer on the last play of the game.
Andre Ayew and Osman Bukari scored Ghana’s goals. Ayew and Bukari are exceptional, but they aren’t the best on the team. In other words, the Black Stars have talent to spare since their roster also includes Inaki Williams, Thomas Partey and Mohammed Kudus, who play for Athletic Bilbao, Arsenal and Ajax.
If that’s not enough for you, let me remind you that Ghana finished the qualifiers with a 4-3-1 record. In the third and last round, they eliminated Nigeria, a team led by Victor Osimhen, who’s the Italian Serie A top scorer.
Head coach Otto Addo isn’t as experienced as Bento, but prior to accepting the job, he was crucial for Borussia Dortmund to remain in the elite from 2019-21. The Black and Yellow won the DFB Pokal with Addo as an assistant coach.

South Korea vs Ghana Picks & Prediction
- Is it Worth betting on the Moneyline?
Yes, steady hand included. South Korea is offering a +150 price in the sportsbook to win straight up. On the other hand, Ghana is offering a +205 price. In other words, if you were looking for an underdog to include in your soccer betting ticket, the Black Stars could be the answer.
Last but not least, the draw is offering a +215 price. These two have met six times and have never tied. Hey, there’s always a first time for everything, and what better setting to rewrite history than the WC.
- Is it Worth betting ATS?
Not really. The risk is higher than the one you would be taken with the moneyline. As if that wasn’t enough, In South Korea’s case the reward would be lower.
- Is it Worth betting on the Totals?
Again, not really. We’re talking about two equal forces here, and the total is set at two goals, with the over offering a -125 price and the under a +105 price. Don’t get me wrong, I do believe both will score, but not enough to avoid the push.
Score Prediction: South Korea 1, Ghana 1
