World Cup Group G Prediction
Brazil has a whopping five World Cup titles to its name and is the favorite to be the last team standing in December at +320 odds. It has also finished at the top of its group in every World Cup since 1982. Neymar should have no trouble leading a team filled with stars to an unbeaten record in group play.
The battle to keep an eye on in Group G is the one for the second spot. Switzerland is the betting favorite and is one of only three European teams to reach the knockout stage in each of the last four major international tournaments. The Swiss know how to keep games close through all 90 minutes.
Serbia is attempting to advance to the knockout stage for the first time across what is now four World Cup appearances. Aleksander Mitrovic brings an aggressive style of play up front that makes him a threat to score at any time. An underwhelming defense will be what keeps Serbia out of the running.
Cameroon will be a tough matchup for all three competitors, but it's a team that has stumbled in recent play.
Group G Standings Prediction:
- Brazil (3-0-0)
- Switzerland (1-1-1)
- Serbia (0-2-1)
- Cameroon (0-1-2)
