Brazil World Cup 2018 Betting – Odds, Group & Prediction

Brazil

Brazil, the most successful nation ever in the history of the World Cup will be out to prove a point in Russia during the summer. 4 years ago they were embarrassed in the semi-finals by eventual winners Germany. But they look to be returning even stronger and even more of a threat this time around.

Winner Odds*

Germany 9/2, Brazil 4/1, France 13/2, Spain 6/1, Argentina 10/1, Belgium 11/1, England 18/1, Portugal 25/1, Uruguay 33/1, Croatia 33/1, Colombia 40/1, Russia 40/1, Poland 50/1, bar 100/1* (betting odds taken at 7:46 p.m. on April 5th, 2018)

 

Brazil Group Stage

The Selecao will be looking at filling their boots in the group stage. The draw that they have received is pretty manageable and there’s no reason really whey they shouldn’t be able to fulfil their expectancy of actually winning the group. They open with their toughest game which is against Switzerland on June 17th, but after that, it should be plain sailing for them. That having been said of course, while Switzerland are looking to be in a good, positive state at the moment it is Brazil who should collect the three points.

Brazil look very good at the moment, arguably strong and better balanced than they were four years ago. They have fantastic attacking options and strength in the middle of the park. The one question mark will always be over their defence but they have two super keepers in Ederson and Alisson to hold them together. One of the key factors about their campaign is going to be keeping Neymar fit. The fitter he is, the strong the chances of Brazil winning the cup will be.

Neymar is the even-money favourite at be365* (betting odds taken on April 6th, 2018 at 16:01 p.m.) to be Brazil’s top goalscorer in their World Cup 2018 campaign. Following their duel with Switzerland, Brazil will go on to face Costa Rica and then Serbia, again matches in which they will be expecting to pick up three points. It’s hard to see where they are going to be tripped up at all. They will be in the knockout stages of the competition.

Brazil Stage of Elimination Odds

Where does Brazil get tripped up in the World Cup? It’s not likely to be in the group stage and if they win their group it would likely put them against Sweden or Mexico in the round of sixteen. You can see the Selecao moving through to the quarter finals easily enough. That’s when the level of competition is going to be stepping up as they could face potentially Belgium there and the interesting thing about the draw is what could be waiting in the semi-finals.

If both Brazil and Germany win their respective groups, they would be on for a semi-final duel. Just as it was four years ago when Germany thumped the South Americans 7-1. It would be a fantastic occasion if the Brazilians got to go out and play for some revenge there. The question is, would their fare any better this time around against the team? Brazil are 4/1 odds at bet365* (betting odds taken on April 6th, 2018 at 16:01 p.m.) to exit at the semi-final stage again, while the shortest price on them is a round of sixteen exit at 10/3 odds* (betting odds taken on April 6th, 2018 at 16:01 p.m.).

World Cup Record

No one has a more illustrious history at the World Cup than Brazil do. They have won it five times before and have finished in the top four in four of the last six editions. It’s not a bad record at all. Their first titles came in back to back editions in 1958 and 1962 and then they made it three as they took first place at Mexico ‘70. They had to wait until USA ‘94 to get another title under their belt and they got it again for the fifth time in 2002.

After back to back quarter-final exits in 2006 and 2010, they were running well four years ago on home soil until they ran into Germany in the semi-finals. They will have hurt not being able to convert on home soil and the manner in which they crashed out. Brazil have a W10 D17 L17 record at the World Cup.

Brazil Prediction

They have everything they need to go all the way and collect the title. Qualification was a breeze, they look stronger and far more balanced right throughout the squad than they were even four years ago. They are just well worth a punt at 9/2 odds with bet365* (betting odds taken on April 6th, 2018 at 16:01 p.m.) to win the thing outright.
