Uruguay vs South Korea Bet Builder Tips
Both our selections for our Uruguay against South Korea Bet Builder tips come from the shots on target market, where first up we are backing Federico Valverde to hit the target twice or more.
For Real Madrid this season the midfielder is averaging 3.2 shots per game in the Champions League and scored twice in five appearances in that competition. In La Liga Valverde has scored an impressive six goals in just 12 starts in 2022/2023 and we are backing him to be one of the stars to shine out in Qatar at this World Cup. Paddy Power have 7/1 on show for those looking to back the 2+ shots on target as a single, which is considerably bigger than the 7/2 on show with both Skybet and bet365.
For the second half of this 34/1 double we are backing South Korea’s Son Heung-min to register 2+ shots on target. The Spurs man was the joint top scorer in the Premier League last season and has scored in four of his last five appearances for his national side.
This double of Son Heung-min and Federico Valverde pays just 13/1 with Skybet and 16/1 with bet365 so we’d certainly recommend using Paddy Power for this one. It’s also worth noting that existing Paddy Power customers will receive a free Bet Builder for the England vs USA game on Friday.
