The Beautiful Game: 2014 FIFA World Cup Opening Match Betting Odds

Top chalk Brazil battles Croatia in Group A opener

Arena Corinthians in São Paulo, South America, hosts the lone World Cup opening day match as Brazil is set to battle Croatia at 4:00 PM ET on June 12, 2014. This is rematch of the 2006 Group F opening round game that saw Brazil defeat Croatia 1-0 in Berlin, Germany. Though it won’t be a stroll across the pitch, this is fairly soft opener for the Brazilians who are thick -347 chalk in this contest. We’ll wager 500 units on the hosts here.

Argentina opens Group F World Cup play versus Bosnia & Herzegovina

Football powerhouse Argentina, a country populated by over 40 million people, begins their path to World Cup glory with a match versus Bosnia and Herzegovina a tiny country on the Balkan Peninsula that’s home to just under four million people. Having met twice previously (never in World Cup play) Argentina owns a 2-0 series advantage thanks to a 5-0 win in 1998 and 2-0 triumph in their latest match played on November 18, 2013 at Busch Soccer Park in St. Louis, MO. Liking the reasonable odds – we’ll bet 500 units on Lionel Messi & Co.
