When it comes to strength in depth, Group G is probably the toughest of the eight at the 2014 World Cup. The quality of Portugal, Ghana and USA will make formidable opposition but Germany have sufficient class to justify the favourite's tag and emerge group winners.
We've got World Cup betting from the leading bookmakers on Freebets.com where you can compare prices for teams to win Group G along with World Cup odds for other Group winners and the outright winner.
Joachim Low introduced some promising young players in South Africa four years ago and they have not disappointed with the help of World Cup stalwarts, Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger. The squad will be among the strongest to assemble in Brazil and Germany are rated the best European hope in the outright betting market, ahead of World Cup holders Spain.
Portugal remain a mystery and a high risk betting proposition, flattering to deceive on too many occasions. They are blessed with skillful talent and one of the best in the world in Cristiano Ronaldo but are guilty of frequent underperformance, as witnessed during their qualifying campaign.
USA and Ghana both pose a serious threat to Portugal's chances of progressing to the Second Round. Jurgen Klinsmann has forged a competitive USA squad with a winning attitude and Ghana survived the toughest qualifying group in Africa to make it to Brazil.
Group G games will be played at Salvador, Natal, Forteleza, Manaus, Recife and Brasilia
