Thursday 7pm: Brazil v Serbia
TV: BBC

Brazil -1

2022 World Cup favourites Brazil get their campaign underway on Thursday as the five-time winners face off against Serbia.

Brazil went unbeaten in qualifying for the World Cup, with Tite’s side winning 14 and drawing three of their 17 games.

They also scored 40 goals and conceded just five times in that period.

Brazil have a world-class squad and Tite has plenty of options all over the pitch. His front three will likely be Neymar, Vinicius Jr and Richarlison so Serbia will have their work cut out.

We fancy Brazil to win, however, the odds aren’t worth getting behind. Instead, we’re siding with Brazil -1 on the Handicap betting.

Neymar to Score Anytime

Neymar is Brazil’s main man and they’ll be relying on him to guide them to their sixth World Cup.

The 30-year-old has been sensational for PSG this season, with the forward netting 15 goals and chipping in with 11 assists.

Neymar averages 2.7 shots per game for PSG in Ligue 1 and the Champions League and he’ll be shoot on sight in Qatar for Brazil. Neymar to Score Anytime makes plenty of sense.

Neymar Anytime Assist

Sticking with the theme of Neymar being the key to Brazil’s success, we also like him to set up one of his team-mates against Serbia.

We’ve mentioned he’ll be up top alongside Vinicius Jr and Richarlison but Tite can also call upon Gabriel Jesus, Antony, Gabriel Martinelli, Raphinha, Rodrygo and Pedro.

Brazil’s attack will be free flowing and Neymar already has 11 assists to his name for PSG. Neymar Anytime Assist is the third leg of our Bet Builder.

Over 2.5 Goals

Finally, we’re backing Over 2.5 Goals. We’re already expecting two goals to fly in (Neymar scoring and setting one up) so we only need one more for this selection to land.

We know of Brazil’s deadly attack and they could easily score three on Thursday but Serbia can also call upon Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic and Dusan Vlahovic of Juventus.

The pair have scored 16 goals in all competitions so far this season and they’ll be a handful for any side at the World Cup.
