Group A Betting Odds
Host nation Brazil, favorites in World Cup 2014 betting, are expected to dominate in Group A. Mexico and Croatia are expected to fight a close battle for second place in Group A, and a ticket to the Round of 16. Cameroon, a 500/1 longshot to claim the title at Brazil 2014, is expected to finish at the bottom of Group A.
Here are the Group A teams and their odds to win the group at Bovada.
Brazil leads the way in World Cup 2014 betting, sporting odds of 3/1 to win their sixth World Cup title. As host nation, Brazil did not have to endure qualification matches. However, that has not kept the squad from being dominant in international play since winning the 2013 Confederations Cup.
Croatia returns to the World Cup stage at Brazil 2014 after failing to qualify for the tourney in 2010. The squad’s World Cup 2014 odds currently sit at 150/1; no surprise given Croatia’s struggles during qualification. Croatia will also be without star forward Mario Mandzukic for their match against Brazil while he serves a one-game suspension.
A squad in turmoil in 2013, Mexico will try to draw on their success as the 2012 Olympic champs when they take to the pitch at Brazil 2014. While a distant underdog in Group A, Mexico is favored to be the top North American team in World Cup 2014 betting. The keys to success in Group A for Mexico will be their matches against Croatia and Cameroon.
Cameroon’s World Cup 2014 odds are long, pegged at a distant 500/1. The Cameroon squad is young and skilled, but is thought to lack the offensive abilities of the other teams in the group. Cameroon is most likely best suited to play the role of spoiler in Group A. An upset win by Cameroon over Croatia or Mexico would likely put an end to those squads’ dreams at Brazil 2014.
