Bet the 2010 World Cup
Brazil is the winner of Group G and Chile is the runner-up of Group H.
Oddsmakers from online sports book have made Brazil the favorites to win with a betting line of -215 while Chile comes in at +600. A regulation draw has a money line of +300.

Brazil hasn’t struggled much in World Cup play, winning its first two games decisively while drawing with Portugal in a game that had no bearing for either team. Brazil has tremendous talent and scoring potential. Its defense could be a little improved, but both goals it allowed came when it already had a comfortable lead.

Chile has been a bit of a surprise as it went 2-1 in the opening round. The lone loss was 2-1 against Spain as Spain had everything to play for and Chile had little to lose. Chile has played well on defense, but it is facing its greatest opponent in this match. The key in this game will be for Chile to keep the game as low scoring as possible.

Brazil is just too good of a team to drop this game. Look for the Brazilians to jump out to an early lead and then keep Chile in check. We like Brazil to win this game 2-1.

Our World Cup Free Pick for this matchup is: BRAZIL -215 and OVER 2.5
