Spain and Portugal battled to a 3-3 draw in the most entertaining game of the tournament thus far. That opened the door for Iran who sneaked by Morocco 1-0 on an own goal.

Spain is dealing with a new coach as Julien Lopetegui was sacked on the eve of the tournament after agreeing to become Real Madrid’s new coach. The replacement is Fernando Hierro and the team seemed to rally behind him in the opener.

Diego Costs scored twice and Nacho scored once. The Spanish trailed 1-0 and 2-1 before going ahead 3-2. Ronaldo then scored the equalizer on a free kick in the 88th minute.

Iran’s win over Morocco was their first in the tournament since 1998. They were content to play a countering game as their foe controlled the ball 63% of the time. The winner came five minutes into stoppage time with Aziz Bouhaddouz accidentally tipping the ball into his net.

The win put Iran into first in group B. Another here would book their spot and be the shocker of the tournament.

Bovada Sportsbook currently have the Spain listed as -600 ML Favorites versus the Iran, at +1700 ML Undergod while the Draw is at +575.

The Bottom Line:
Spain is -600 favorites and Iran +1700 underdogs. The draw is +575. I do think Iran is a dangerous underdog that certainly got a jolt of confidence in their win, but it’s hard to go against Spain here. The Pick: Spain 3-0.
