Brazil

Brazil is the only nation to participate in every single edition of the World Cup, and they have finished top of their group in every World Cup since 1982. The last time Brazil failed to get out of their group was in 1966. They enjoyed a superb qualifying campaign with 14 wins, three draws, and not a single defeat.

It’s been 20 long years since they last won, so they will be desperate to lift the trophy in Qatar. With eight goals and eight assists in just the qualifying campaign, Neymar proved once again exactly why he is still the standout star in this exceptionally talented squad. Not just that, but he’s enjoying a brilliant season with Paris Saint-Germain, with 13 goals scored and 12 assists in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.

Regarding the starting lineup, Alisson and Thiago Silva are front runners, along with the midfield trio of Casemiro, Fred, and Lucas Paqueta, although Brazil’s firepower is their best weapon. They were drawn into Group G together with Serbia, Switzerland, and Cameroon and are priced at +375 to lift the trophy with the latest soccer odds.

Serbia

Serbia failed to make it to Euro 2020 but secured a place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar by finishing top and unbeaten in a tough qualifying group that included Portugal. They will be looking for revenge for their early exit from the previous World Cup in Russia when they finished third in their group behind Brazil and Switzerland.

The playmaking, creativity, and experience of Dusan Tadic combined with their attacking firepower in Aleksandar Mitrovic, Luka Jovic, Dusan Vlahovic, Filip Kostic, and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic should be enough for Serbia to qualify in the knockout stages. They play as a unit, have a great fighting spirit, and will definitely be a team to watch and include in our soccer picks and parlays.

Aleksandar Mitrovic, Serbia’s all-time leading scorer, was crucial to Fulham’s promotion to the Premier League last season, scoring 43 goals in 44 fixtures. He’s already enjoying a superb EPL season, with nine goals netted this term. Few teams have as accomplished attacking players as Serbia, and they’ll need to be firing at full capacity based on their group.

Switzerland

Switzerland knocked France out of the Euros and topped a World Cup qualifying group with Italy. They are in a tough group but have all the potential to meet qualifying expectations. After a poor start in 2022, they bounced back, beating Portugal and Spain in the Nations League, and will head to Qatar as the 15th team in the FIFA rankings.

Switzerland remained unbeaten during the qualifiers and conceded only two goals. Along with talisman Xherdan Shaqiri, Premier League players Fabian Schar, Manuel Akanji, Granit Xhaka, and Denis Zakaria will be key. Switzerland has named an experienced squad and hopes to build on their impressive performance at Euro 2020. Their top keeper Yann Sommer returned from injury, providing a boost for the Swiss. They are very organized at the back, so if you’re betting online, don’t expect them to allow many goals in the group stages.

Cameroon

Cameroon is back on football’s biggest stage after a dramatic extra-time winner-take-all victory over Algeria in late March. They will now make their eighth appearance in the World Cup and finished third at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations on home soil. It’s been 20 years since Cameroon last won a World Cup match.

Their star striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is on fire. He has scored 11 times in 16 appearances across all competitions for Bayern Munich this term despite a difficult start to the season with a groin injury. On top of that, Cameroon will arrive in Qatar with some great Serie A players, such as Napoli’s midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Inter Milan’s first keeper Andre Onana.

They have a new coach, legend Rigobert Song who replaced Toni Conceicao, but they have struggled under him with four losses in seven matches, failing to find the back of the net in five of them. Cameroon will probably finish last in this group.
