Over / Under (O / U)
LESS THAN 2.5 (+125) is a bit risky, as France has the potential to open up against South Africa.
The latter has shown an exceptional defense against a decent Japanese team and will seek to play a game of possession by keeping him away from the Blues. South Africa should be able to slow down enough for the Under result.
