Iran Vs. Portugal Betting: Odds, Picks For World Cup 2018 Game

A win and Iran is in.

Monday’s contest between Iran and Portugal has plenty of big implications. Spain and Portugal sit atop Group B with four points apiece, while Iran is just one point behind heading into the final game.

Portugal controls its own destiny. A win or draw and it is through to the Round of 16, but a win for Iran would send it through and certainly would be a stunner.

Let’s look at the Iran vs. Portugal betting lines.

Current betting line (via OddsShark.com):
Iran win: +520
Portugal win: -152
Draw: +240

Total goals: 2
OVER: -125
Under: +105

NESN.com’s picks: Portugal win, over
It is enticing to want to pick Iran to either upset or draw. But Portugal certainly has the advantage from a talent perspective, and we can’t help but believe it will ensure that this one doesn’t get interesting. Bet on Portugal.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been one of the more prolific goal scorers this tournament and he’s sure to create a challenge for the Iranian defense. Especially if Iran sneaks in a goal of its own, this one likely will feature a few tallies. Bet the over.
