Cameroon vs Brazil betting preview

Cameroon showed fighting spirit in their draw against Serbia this week. They were 3-1 down before Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored within heartbeats of each other to grind out a point. If they go down two or three goals to Brazil, however, the outcome could be very different.

Brazil are yet to concede this tournament, which only further complicates the mission for Cameroon. They will face either Ghana or Uruguay in the round-of-16, so may well decide to rest some players here. They have won all 6 of their last games across all competitions and can afford to rotate things a little without sacrificing much in the way of quality.

Even with Neymar (who scored two against Cameroon when they last met) recovering from a light injury, this squad is packed with depth. West Ham’s Paqueta will likely log some minutes, while Manchester United’s spin-happy Antony, and Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus could also factor. That’s three top premier league players coming in as depth pieces. There’s a reason why Brazil is favored to win it all.

Unfortunately, despite the numerous upsets we’ve seen already, I think this story only has one ending.

Cameroon vs Brazil betting pick

Parlaying Brazil with any other selection from today’s slate of games is probably the best way to go about this. The five-time World Cup winners boast too much quality to be rocked by Cameroon, despite the fact they’ll likely be playing with an extra fire inside. Brazil move the ball too quickly and fluently for Cameroon to keep up a high-paced attacking mentality and this could lead to a 2/3 goal win for Brazil.

You could bet Brazil -1.5 if you’re feeling brave and wanted a wager on this game.
