Basically, if I see an edge, I’ll share it.

Great start so far, going 2-0 on my Day 1 picks.

Let’s jump into the fun with a few bets I’m making for the second day of the tournament.

Philippines vs. Switzerland1 a.m. ET Friday, FS1 and the FOX Sports app

Philippines/Switzerland Under 3.5 goals (-172)

I don’t see many goals being scored in this game. Switzerland is clearly the better side, but in six games this year, they have scored just five goals, three of which came in a game against Zambia.

It might be a bit expensive for some at -172, but I’m always willing to pay for an extra insurance target. If you’re feeling a bit bolder, you can go Under 2.5 for a better price (+156).

Pick: Philippines/Switzerland Under 3.5 goals (bet $10 to win $15.81 total)

Spain vs. Costa Rica3:30 am AND Friday, FS1 and the FOX Sports app

Spain -4.5 vs Costa Rica (-130)

With Alexia Putellas, Esther Gonzalez and others, there is no shortage of goal scoring options for Spain. Although it was not the strongest qualifying group, The Red ripped through the group with a 53-0 lead and is far too deep and talented for Costa Rica.

Depending on your willingness to set a price (which is something I have no problem doing when I feel the odds of a hit are slim), the “No” on BTTS (Both Teams to Score) is -450 ($10 bet to win $12.22 total). Without a penalty or a fluky own goal, how are Costa Rica scoring?

Spain won easily.

Pick: Spain to win more than 4 goals (bet $10 to win a total of $17.69)
