With tournament hosts Brazil widely expected to top Group A at the World Cup, it could be worth backing them to win every game in the Group Points market.
At odds on to top Group A with most online bookmakers, Brazil are expected to encounter little difficulty in making the second round, but punters will be put off by such short prices. However, Betway's odds of 7/5 on them taking 9 points in Group Points betting offer a relatively appealing opportunity for punters to get involved.
Brazil hosted the 2013 Confederations Cup 12 months ago and showcased their talented squad on the world stage when reaching the final with ease before beating current World Cup holders Spain 3-0 with relative ease to lift the trophy.
The samba nation will contest the tournament's opening game with Croatia on June 12th when the Blazers will have their work cut out in Sau Paulo. Croatia sneaked into the tournament through the play-offs and may struggle to compete at their best in the Brazilian climate. Luiz Filipe Scolari's side should have no problems picking up three points and a win will send them into the game with Mexico on a high. El Tricolor will of course be more suited to hot and humid conditions, but their suspect defence is likely to be found out by Neymar and company, making a further 3 point haul for Selecao the probable outcome in Fortaleza. Making sure of top spot will be a priority for Brazil as they look set to face either Spain or Netherlands in the Second Round if Group B plays out as expected. Cameroon probably have the weakest defence in Group A, so it's hard to see Brazil coming up short in Brasilia and they can go into the last 16 with some good momentum.
