The World Cup is fast approaching and we are going to get you covered for every group with free World Cup 2014 betting tips and predictions.
We begin with Group A which includes Brazil, Mexico, Croatia and Cameroon. The World Cup 2014 betting odds show the hosts are big favourites at 1/20 to qualify with Bet365 and are also the favorites for the competition, followed by Mexico at 6/5 to qualify also with Bet365, Croatia are 11/10 with Coral and Cameroon are rank outsiders at 5/1 with Bet365.
As you can see from the above, there is little value in backing Brazil. However, with Mexico and Croatia so close in the odds, there is definitely value to be had there. Mexico are not the side they once were and scraped in to the World Cup after 4th out of 6 in the last round of North American qualifying and beating New Zealand in a Play-Off. Playing less accomplished opposition in that case and they may struggle on the big stage.
Croatia also had to go via a Play-Off, against Iceland after finishing second in their group. However, they were with Belgium who ran away with the group and are a lot of people’s dark horses for the competition. Their squad boasts the likes of Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Ivica Olic and Bayern Munich man Mario Mandzukic, plenty of European pedigree.
Mexico struggled to get to Brazil and against a cultured Croatia side, they may drop out in the group and the Croats are definitely the best bet at 11/10 with Coral.
Brazil should walk this group, after their Confederations Cup performance and the class of the opposition put against them, anything less than nine points and top spot will be a huge disappointment. As I already mentioned, little value there. However, pair them in a straight forecast with Croatia, there is value. Winner are offering 7/4 on Brazil to finish first and Croatia to finish 2nd and for a bit of a bigger price, this is worth a flutter.
