Neymar Anytime Goalscorer (ATG +120)
Neymar was injured by a brutal Nikola Milenkovic tackle in the World Cup opener. It was a huge hit toward coach Tite’s plans but it seems that the Paris Saint-Germain forward is fully fit and ready for another great match.
It’s going to take a ton of Croatian defensive effort to handle this brilliant player. Neymar is in the form of his life and he’s fully motivated to lift the World Cup trophy this year. He should score against Croatia. We even expect him to offer an assist for Richarlison and we will definitely include him in our soccer picks and parlays.
Richarlison ATG (+175)
Everyone’s talking about Neymar but Richarlison is by far the most important player for the Selecao in the World Cup this year. His sensational brace against Serbia was a stepping stone toward greater things. His second goal is probably going to win the most beautiful goal in the tournament, but his overall performance in Qatar has been a joy to behold.
He has been in massive form in this World Cup and his contribution could once again be the key. He has been consistent in front of goal at this tournament with three goals to his name and his involvement in this game could be the deciding factor.
Richarlison was on target for Brazil against South Korea in the Round of 16. If the Tottenham striker wants to be crowned as the best striker in the tournament, which appears to be heading the way of France superstar Kylian Mbappe, he is probably going to need to score in this game. We believe he stands a good chance of doing that as he has been so bright and sharp in Qatar and has played a huge role for his country.

Ivan Perisic ATG (+600)
Ivan Perisic looks like an excellent candidate to find the back of the net against Brazil. Richarlison’s teammate from Tottenham contributed to the scoresheet against Japan and is now Croatia’s all-time leading scorer in FIFA World Cups. He’s averaging three-plus shots per game in Qatar so he should see a chance or two come his way against the Selecao.
The intelligence of understanding when to push forward, his composure, quality in the final third, and pace to dart past opponents are all we need to take this longshot bet.
