2010 FIFA World Cup Expert Picks: Round of 16

Can Brazil, the world's best team, reclaim their World Cup crown? (Ronaldo, "The Simpsons," 'Marge Gamer,' April 22, 2007)

It’s now time for the Round of 16, kicking off with Uruguay and South Korea. There’s plenty of action between now and Tuesday, so turn on your TiVos (TiVoes?) and catch all of the action. I hear the North Korean squad’s execution will be broadcast live on ESPN2. With the Group Stages over, the SoB staff (the remaining seven of us anyway) are hear to give you their choices for the next round. Was Japan able to garner some votes? Can the U.S. move through? Spain and Portugal (#2 and #3) are set to face off, so who will win? Can England, after their embarrassing GOAL!!!!!!!! against the Americans, pull through against WWII rivals Germany? These questions will be answered … right now.

Brazil and the Netherlands were picked unanimously to win, which would set up a huge quarterfinal contest. Uruguay, Argentina, and the United States were all all but unanimously picked, while Spain should defeat Portugal, Paraguay should beat Japan and Germany should beat England, but at 5-2, those games could produce upsets easily, at least easier than the other games. The United States and Ghana is looking to be the game that will go the furthest to the wire, assuming you think America will win. Perhaps not so surprisingly, Brazil looks to have the easiest time.

A correct pick for the winner of each game in the first sudden-death round is worth two points. In addition, experts will also be picking the minute of the game in which they think the winning goal will be made. (If, for example, someone thinks the U.S. will win 3-1, they’ll be guessing the minute in which they think the U.S. will score their second goal.) A correct pick to within fifteen minutes earns one point, and a correct pick to within five minutes earns two points instead. There’s a lot of points (32) up for grabs, so check below to see how everyone is thinking the Round of 16 will go.
