World Cup 2014 betting tips and prediction for betting on Group A, will Brazil win the group and go on to win the World Cup this summer?
As international domestic seasons draw to a close we switch our attention to the 2014 World Cup which begins in Brazil on 12 June. Group A consists of host nation Brazil, Croatia, Cameroon and Mexico. Brazil kick off the 2014 World Cup against Croatia as firm favourites, not only for the group but the tournament too. Cameroon and Mexico will play out the second group match the day after.
World Cup Group A Latest Odds: Brazil 1/4, Croatia 9/1, Mexico 9/1, Cameroon 33/1. Get a free £200 World Cup at Bet365 via this link.
As the host nation and clear strongest team in the group Brazil’s World Cup odds on qualifying from Group A are low with most places giving 1/20 or less. Their odds of winning the group outright are not too far away from that with Betfair the pick of the bunch at 1/4. Mexico and Croatia are joint group second favourites to qualify, reflecting their similar levels. Most places have them as evens to qualify. To win the group it pays to shop around with both Croatia and Mexico available at 9/1 with Sky Bet and Betfair respectively.
Bringing up the rear of the group is Cameroon, which is a fair reflection on their level relating to the other teams. Bet365 are best priced for Cameroon to qualify from the group with odds of 5/1 available. You can find odds as high as 33/1 with Bet Victor for Cameroon to top the group.
With the group seemingly sewn up by Brazil before kick-off, the best value resides in place betting for our World Cup Group A betting tips. A Brazil-Croatia winner-qualifier forecast is available from Ladbrokes at 6/4 while a Brazil-Mexico forecast is available for the same odds with Paddy Power. Bookmakers lean slightly towards Brazil-Mexico for the most likely result due to Mexico being better acclimatised to the summer conditions in South America.

Which is why Cameroon, although the weakest team on paper, do have a chance of getting some results within the group. They have some good players who are used to paying in big games and in harsh weather conditions. I think they could surprise some people, if not actually doing enough to qualify. I think they could come third in the group with Croatia being served a double blow by facing Brazil in their first game and not being able to pick up momentum in the tournament and by being the least capable of the Group A teams to acclimatise to conditions. For an outside World Cup 2014 tip take the Brazil-Mexico-Cameroon tricast at 9/1 with William Hill, leaving Croatia finishing bottom of Group A at the 2014 World Cup.
