Group F underdogs Iran get their World Cup campaign underway against Nigeria in Curitiba and will be looking to upset the odds to give themselves a chance of making the Second Round.
Even though this looks to be the easiest of Iran's three Group F games, Nigeria have more accomplished players throughout their squad and are likely to be too strong for Carlos Queiroz's side. Super Eagles look a good bet at around the even money mark in the match odds market, but they aren't expected to run away with the game and a Correct Score punt of 2-1 makes appeal at the current odds.
Those playing the goalscorer markets will be drawn to Peter Odemwingie after his promising displays for Stoke this season, while Victor Moses makes a strong case for consideration with his goal-scoring record from midfield and may be available to back at far bigger odds. If you fancy Iran to net the first goal then Javed Nekounam looks the safest bet as their main attacking outlet.
