Chile and Australia get their respective World Cup campaigns underway in Cuiaba and both sides will be hoping to get off to a good start with extremely difficult fixtures to come in a highly competitive Group B.
Chile look best equipped to oust either Spain or Netherlands and make it to the Second Round and are a relatively safe bet to beat Australia in the match odds market. Not so long ago the Socceroos were on a terrible goal drought and although recent improvements in their attacking displays may have papered over some cracks, Chile will be a step up in opposition and taking the South American side to win with a clean sheet will boost your potential returns.
Correct Score bettors will find little difference between the odds for a 1-0 or 2-0 Chile victory, but the more adventurous punter can get a tidy payout if successful in backing La Roja to win 3-0. Those playing the goalscorer markets will be drawn to Alexis Sanchez after his good performances in qualification for Brazil 2014, while Arturo Vidal makes appeal as an Anytime Goalscorer bet from midfield. As difficult as it is to see Australia finding the net, Tim Cahill is a difficult player to deal with at set pieces and looks to be their main goalscoring threat.
