Group G is one of several at this World Cup that could well be labelled the “group of death” and before a ball was kicked separating Germany, Portugal, USA and Ghana looked a tough task. Germany were always clear favourites in the outright winner market for Group G but picking out who would qualify alongside them looked difficult to say the least. Read on for our outright betting tips and the latest live odds comparison as we take a look at how Group G stands after the first round of matches.

Germany more or less ensured they will top the group by hammering Portugal 4-0 with a hat-trick from Thomas Muller after Portugal’s Pepe was harshly sent off for touching heads with Muller. It was a resounding performance and whilst Cristiano Ronaldo may not have been fully fit the score sent a message to the rest of the teams: Germany will be a major force at this World Cup.

In the other game the USA did their hopes of nicking second a huge favour by scoring a late goal to see off Ghana 2-1. The African’s had the better of the game for long spells and managed 21 shots, more than any side in the World Cup thus far, but with only three on target Tim Howard in the US goal was rarely troubled.

Germany are unbackable in the outright group winner betting at odds of just 1/12 with Coral so our main betting tip for Group G is an audacious tricast of Germany/USA/Ghana – with Portugal to finish bottom – at nice odds of 4/1 with Sky Bet.
