This game sees the first appearance at these championships of the tournament favourites, so Brazil vs Serbia betting tips will inevitably favour the South Americans. They are massively fancied to win this fixture, with a short price as low as 1.50, although odds can of course change right up to kick-off.
Serbia may well have their eye on the final game in Group G against the Swiss, which could easily prove to be a winner-takes-all match. Here we look at some of the markets available for this game and offer a brief preview.
Wherever the Brazilians play at any of these tournaments, they guarantee a full house, such is their appeal, so there won't be a single-seat spare at the magnificent 80,000-capacity Lucail Stadium, on the 24th of November, when they begin their Group G campaign against Serbia, kicking off at 10 pm local time. Just 10 miles outside of Doha, this is the show-piece ground, that will also host the Cup Final at the end of the competition.
I want to finish 2022 with the World Cup title. I’m preparing myself both physically and mentally so that everyone goes well, and we have a ‘Brazilian World Cup’ this time. I’ll give my life for it, I have played it two times now and I know how it works. - Neymar in an interview before the tournament, Daily Post
It is fair to say most nations would have hoped to avoid the favourites for the WC 2022 when the groups were drawn, although sometimes in past events the Brazilians have not always lived up to top billing. It does, however, look like three teams battling for that other qualifying spot, so the Serbs will be hoping to put in a strong performance, as they will not want to be under pressure should they be on the end of a heavy defeat, in what does on paper at least, appear to be a WC 2022 sure bet. If that were to happen then they would be playing catch-up in the next two games against Cameroon and Switzerland.
These two met at the 2018 tournament in Russia, with Brazil gaining a relatively comfortable victory, and not only are they expected to stroll through the group, but anything other than being crowned champions will be seen as a failure, for the five-time winners. The Serbs on the other hand, will probably just want to get out of the group and then take it from there. They should not, however, be underestimated, as proven when they overcame a very good Portuguese outfit to claim top position qualifying to get into these finals. The likelihood and Brazil vs Serbia best prediction is for the talented South Americans to slowly ease themselves into the tournament with a narrow victory.
The Brazil vs Serbia winner odds for this fixture reflect the general feeling coming into this tournament, that the mighty Brazilians are going to take some stopping. They are a very skinny 1.50 to win here, whilst it is possible to get 7.00 on the Serbs, who are certainly no mugs. Even the draw at 4.20 doesn't suggest a close encounter.
In the other markets, there is a little more value to be found with Brazil vs Serbia odds for a correct scoreline of 2-1 at 9.50 and 3-1 at 15.00, both worth some consideration. A 1-1 draw at 8.50 doesn't make a great appeal, but a 1-0 win in Serbia's favour at 19.00 certainly does, especially if anybody senses a bit of a shock result. Remember to check the latest Cameroon vs Serbia odds we gathered in the related preview - you'll be surprised how many great prices you can already take advantage of ahead of this second-round Group G fixture.
Those firmly in the Brazilian camp and believing it will be an easy win may like the look of Brazil to win by four or more goals at 9.25. Alternatively, if the belief is for a very tight contest, with a late decider, then the time of the first goal being between 81 minutes and full time could be a very tempting 21.00. In the half-time/full-time market, the Serbs to win at 45 minutes, but losing at the end is 21.00, which might be worthy of a small gamble. Whichever bet is chosen, visiting one of the leading brands, such as Bet365, William Hill, or Unibet is recommended, as they regularly have some of the best offers and prices online.
3. Brazil vs Serbia Prediction
It somehow doesn't feel like a true WC competition until the Brazilians get involved, so punters will have had to wait until the last day of the first round of matches for their entry, and the anticipation surrounding it could have an effect on any Brazil vs Serbia predictions, as sometimes it can all become a bit of an anti-climax.
That said, this does look like something of a WC 2022 sure bet, with so much talent littering the South American squad, against an admittedly talented Serbian side, but lacking in quality in important areas, particularly defence. We drew similar conclusions in our Brazil vs Switzerland betting picks from the related article, so you can already bet on the second Canarinhos match in the group stage.
A considered Brazil vs Serbia betting prediction could only really look towards a Brazilian victory. So the Brazil vs Serbia best prediction is for the Serbs to try to frustrate their classy opponents, but lapse in concentration at least a couple of times, which will probably be costly.
