They added a scoreless draw with Venezuela, and finished group play with a pair of 2-1 losses to Peru and Brazil.
Regular time ML pick: Uruguay +140
Team to advance pick: Uruguay -150
Best bet: Uruguay to advance -150
Sure, maybe Uruguay only managed to score three goals throughout four games (Bolivia helped them out by adding an own goal as well), but they have plenty of pieces needed to get the job done in the likes of Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez, Federico Valverde, and Facundo Torres who are all more than capable of banging in a goal or two in any given situation. Their defense is just as tough, with Cagliari’s Diego Godin and Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez holding down the line in front of goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. Colombia just doesn’t have the firepower or the defensive line to handle the opposition as Uruguay is expected to cruise to a win in their first knockout game of this tournament.
