Betting tips for World Cup Group E for Brazil 2014 as we look to predict who will win the group with a 13/5 value betting tip today.

Group E in Brazil consists of Ecuador, Honduras, France and Switzerland. France are the red hot favourites to pass through the group stages in top spot (best priced 5/6). However, a Swiss side who were immaculate in qualifying are perhaps overpriced at 13/5 and can ensure that the French don’t have it all their own way.

France: 5/6 to win Group E with Paddy Power.

The 1998 champions endured a below par route to the finals and their place in Brazil was decided thanks to a much needed second leg turn around against a resilient Ukraine in the play-offs. There is no doubt that this France side are a group of high class players, which includes the likes of exciting young players; Paul Pogba and Clermont Grenier. If things come together as expected for the French then we predict they should have no problem progressing to the knockout rounds.

Honduras: 33/1 to win Group E with Coral.

Honduras have made history for themselves by qualifying for back to back World Cups for the first time.  This being said, any further record breaking looks unlikely for a side who appear to lack any real threat. Wins against the USA and Mexico and finally a 2-2 draw with Jamaica secured third spot in qualifying for the Hondurans, but having kept just two clean sheets during their route here it would be a big surprise if they were to avoid an early exit.

Ecuador: 9/2 to win Group E with William Hill.

As for Group E’s South American challengers, Ecuador are a side who may just be capable of surprising a few in our World Cup 2014 tips, after all they are the ones who are likely to be more accustomed to the conditions in Brazil. Reinaldo Rueda’s men secured the final automatic spot in qualifying, courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Uruguay. A team with plenty of pace and attacking threat is perhaps marred by a lack of discipline, this is something that has already shown as they failed to win any of their away games on route to Brazil, a statistic which could ultimately contribute to their downfall during the finals.

Switzerland: 13/5 to win Group E with Betfred.

Last but not least, although coming through a relatively easy group, Switzerland enjoyed an undefeated campaign during the qualifiers and made it to Brazil with a game to spare courtesy of 7 wins, 3 draws, scoring 17 goals and conceding only 6 in the process. Ottmar Hitzfeld’s team are a side who should not be taken lightly at these finals. Players such as Haris Seferovic, Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri have proved themselves in two of Europe’s best divisions this season (La Liga and Bundesliga) and are capable of helping what looks a good side progress through the World Cup group stages. At best odds of 13/5 it is Switzerland who are my World Cup betting tip to upset odds on favourites France and make through Group E in top spot.
