Brazil begins its World Cup journey on Sunday when it faces Switzerland in Group E action. Neymar is back and Tite’s team is looking to bring home the country’s sixth World Cup, with the team having all the pieces needed to do so.
Grouped with Serbia and Costa Rica, this is an opportunity for either team to jump-start their World Cup, but it would be a massive upset if Switzerland can get three points. They know a thing or twoo about starting off the World Cup well, beating Spain in their opener in 2010 before the Spanish went on to win the World Cup.
Brazil enters the game healthy when it comes to the players it took to Russia, but the team will likely miss defender Dani Alves, who injured his ACL before the tournament. The big injury concern was Neymar though, and he’s bounced back by scoring in both of Brazil’s last two friendlies.
The 2018 World Cup is off to a thrilling start and gets underway again when Costa Rica and Serbia go head-to-head in a Group E matchup at 8 a.m. ET. Sunday’s slate also features a marquee bout between the top teams in Group F, Germany and Mexico, kicking off at 11 a.m. The afternoon finale will showcase Brazil—the tournament’s favorite—beginning its quest for a record-extending sixth title against Switzerland at 2 p.m.. It’s sure to be another action-packed day of soccer, but fans can opt to make things even more riveting by placing a wager on the outcome of one or all of these games.
Oddsmakers are favoring the Serbs in the first match, installing the Eagles as -115 (risk $1.15 to win $1) chalk against Costa Rica. The Ticos are large, +370 underdogs (netting $3.70 for every $1 wagered), while a draw is thought to be a bit more likely at +225 odds. The Germans are unsurprisingly projected to win big in Sunday’s must-watch contest against El Tri and are even -140 favorites when laying one (-1) on the goal line. This is also expected to be the highest scoring match of the day due to the total goals pegged at 2.5 and the over side of the bet a -135 favorite, compared to the under at +110. The most lopsided showdown, at least on paper, is in the afternoon’s final game. Brazil is overwhelmingly favored with -260 odds to beat its Swiss opponent. Even when spotting Switzerland 1.5 goals against the spread, the Selecao come in as the slightest of underdogs at +110.
