Cameroon v Brazil Odds & Betting Tips – World Cup 2014 Betting
Cameroon v Brazil Betting Preview – World Cup 2014
Even though the Selecao stumbled in their second group match against Mexico, looking decidedly average in a 0-0 draw, they should have more than enough to get past Cameroon who are already out of the qualification race after back to back defeats. Brazil really need to find a way to get the crowd back on their side by stepping up their performance, because it was poorer than expected against the Mexicans. With Croatia hammering Cameroon 4-0, that is what Brazil have to try and live up to in this one.
Cameroon are lacking serious quality in their ranks and are yet to put a goal on the board so far at the World Cup. They lost their opener 1-0 against Mexico and were then played off the park by Croatia. However, if you are looking for a positive and a potential upset, then the Indomitable Lions did win the last time they played Brazil which was in the 2003 Confederations Cup. It was Samuel Eto’o who netted in a 1-0 win for them. Over a decade on and Eto’o at 4/1, is Cameroon’s shortest priced option in the anytime goalscorer market against Brazil.
That has been the only victory for Cameroon against Brazil, having suffered three defeats in their previous four comings together. Also, that goal by Eto’o was Cameroon’s only goal against the Selecao in those four matches. Cameroon have had 30 shots in the World Cup so far, but only three have been on target. They are unlikely to trouble Brazil. The only game between them in the World Cup was won 3-0 by Brazil back in 1994. This will be Brazil’s 100th World Cup match, with only Germany having played more (102).
Brazil should get on the scoreboard as Cameroon have only managed one clean sheet in their last 18 World Cup matches, and the Africans have lost their last six World Cup matches on the bounce. Brazil just couldn’t find a way past inspired Mexican keeper Guillermo Ochoa in their second match, but have big forward options in Neymar, Fred, Jo and Hulk, all of whom are odds-on in the anytime goalscorer market. The last time that Brazil failed to top their group was back in 1978, the last time the World Cup was held in South America (Argentina). Would expect them to see this out comfortably.
