FYI, when you're making your picks, be sure to click on the "I" button next to each matchup.

You'll see the percentages picking a Win for either side, or a Draw. They also show the trends in final scores that are being chosen.

For example, 59% are picking Mexico over South Africa in the opener, and most think they'll do it by a 2-1 score.

We're a week away from the first match, and there's still plenty of room in the group.

Get signed up, and your picks ready!

It comes down to the last day.

If Netherlands wins, Aussiepepe wins. If Spain wins, I win.
