Chile Knocked Spain Out but Not Expected to Win Against Unbeaten Brazil
Brazil cruised through its group in first place but now the World Cup host team now faces a big test in the second round against Chile.
Luiz Felipe Scolari’s Brazil team is a strong favorite at -167 after staying unbeaten so far in its first home World Cup since 1950. Chile impressed when knocking out holders Spain, but is a +450 outsider to shock the host nation in Belo Horizonte.
“Brazil made a slow start, but with the 4-1 win against Cameroon the Selecao showed real signs of being a potential World Cup winner,” an oddsmaker at AllYouBet.ag Sportsbook told me yesterday. “Still, we shouldn’t underestimate Chile. Five different players have scored goals for Jorge Sampaoli’s team, so we know they are capable of threatening from a number of routes.”
Brazilian golden boy Neymar has impressed in the first three matches, and is one of bookmakers’ favorites to win the Golden Boot, awarded to the tournament’s top scorer. The 22-year-old can be backed at +185.
