Group A looks like shaping up to be a two-horse race between Brazil and Mexico after both sides won their opening matches. Brazil beat Croatia 3-1 in Sao Paulo, but they were far from convincing for much of the game. While Mexico showed good attacking intent in their 1-0 victory over Cameroon (and would have scored more but for a couple of bad decisions by the officials). Read on for the latest betting odds comparison and tips as we take a look at what might transpire when the sides meet on Tuesday.

Brazil are favourites to win the World Cup on home soil this summer and though they didn’t put in a vintage performance against Croatia, the three points will serve to settle their nerves. With Neymar scoring twice without playing particularly well, he has a great platform on which to build. Looking shaky at the back, Brazil will rely on their attacking players if they are to go all the way and we think they will show more of what they can do in this match.

With Mexico also better in attack than defence we anticipate a high-scoring affair here, and instead of taking the betting odds of 1/3 on offer with various bookies for a Brazil win we like the look of the 5/2 available with Totesport for Brazil to win and both teams to score in what should be a fantastic match for the neutrals.
