The final round of pool games for the 2014 FIFA World Cup will tomorrow morning see an appearance by Group A favourites Brazil, aiming to seal top spot with another thumping victory over lowly African rivals Cameroon, whose chances of progression to the knockout phase have all but evaporated leading into the match.
For Brazil, victory over Cameroon would not only secure top spot in Group A and allow for an easier path through the sudden death phase of the 2014 World Cup, it would also remove the a lot of the pressure and expectation that comes from hosting the world’s headline sporting tournament in a football-crazed nation.
Cameroon, on the other hand, have lost to both Mexico and Croatia in the 2014 World Cup so-far and are unable to progress past the Group stage as a result, playing for nothing but pride and a confidence boost when meeting Brazil
Brazil Vs Cameroon Special: Brazil to beat Cameroon by more than 4 goals – $4 at Ladbrokes.com.au
While drawing nil-all with a spirited Mexico in their most recent World Cup fixture, Brazil comfortably took care of Croatia 3-1 in the tournament-opener last week and as a result are specials in betting markets to continue their red-hot run of form tomorrow morning at a quote of $1.13 at leading bookie Ladbrokes.com.au, who currently offer Cameroon little hope of success at generous $17 odds.
While not necessarily offering punters exceptional value in head-to-head betting markets, those who believe Brazil will definitely leave the Estadio Nacional de Brasilia with a victory over Cameroon may find value in adding the World Cup favourites as a fold in a multi-bet, along with their selections for all other fixtures tomorrow morning. Currently, a multi-bet featuring Brazil to beat Cameroon, Spain to beat Australia, Croatia to beat Mexico and the Dutch to beat Chile can be taken at $11.26 odds at Ladbrokes Australia.
Unable to find the back of the net in their well-contested stalemate with Mexico last week, Brazil were offered several good chances to break the deadlock and have therefore gained value in betting markets in terms of who will be the first goal scorer. Clear favourite to open their account as a team at short $1.14 odds, Brazil strike weapon Neymar was offered at $2.40 to score the first goal against Mexico, but has opened at a quote of $3.20 to put his name on the scoresheet first against Cameroon.
Known for a defensive line who are not shy to push up the field and aim for goal, placing an anytime scorer bet on a player like David Luiz, who was unlucky to hit the crossbar against Croatia, is well and truly worth consideration, particularly with the $8 odds offered by Ladbrokes.
For those who believe Cameroon can repeat the efforts of Mexico and hold the talented Brazilian side at bay for 90 minutes, there is a range of particularly lucrative betting options to take advantage of.
Having studied the style and pattern of play utlisized by their central American counterparts, Cameroon will be looking to ‘park the bus’ in front of goal, fielding and largely defensive formation with sole-striker Samuel Eto’o likely to lead the attack, and are therefore a chance of keeping Brazil scoreless; currently offered at $13 odds.
