World Cup Preview

Now for a few picks from a different type of football, soccer.

Overall, I'm not going out on a limb too much and think that Spain or Brazil is probably going to win the Cup. I'm leaning strongly toward Brazil, but you can't ignore how great Spain is offensively.

I'm going to post the two teams I think will advance out of each Group and then each day in the morning, I'll post my picks for each match that day.

Group A

Group B

Group C
United States

Group D

Group E

Group F

Group G
Ivory Coast

Group H
