Cameroon v Brazil: Chelsea man a great price to notch anytime

| 22.06.2014

The Brazil fans were enjoying quite a vibrant house party at the World Cup, until Mexico came along playing the role of party-pooping police, now though they have the chance to restart the good times against Cameroon.

The Samba Boys are heavy favourites at 1/8 to win the game, while Cameroon are 20/1 to cause an upset of epic proportions. With the draw an equally unfancied 8/1, we’ve steered well clear of the match betting market when looking for the three best bets in the game. Read them below:

Both teams to score – No @ 1/2

Although they showed some spirit before Alex Song’s red card against Croatia, Cameroon have been poor at these finals.

The African nation are yet to score a goal in Brazil, losing to nil against both Mexico and Luka Modric’s crew, and are still uncertain over the fitness of star striker Samuel Eto’o.

At least one team has failed to score in all of the last three meetings between the two nations, giving further credence to the punt.

Brazil to score over 2.5 goals @ 13/20

In Brazil’s run of 11 unbeaten games, they’ve 10 times and helped themselves to a few goals along the way.

They’ve hit the net three times or more on six occasions in that time, including three in the last four matches.

Meanwhile, Cameroon conceded four against Croatia last time out, as well as five against Portugal in a recent friendly.

Oscar to score at any time @ 6/4

With so many Brazil goals expected, taking up the option on Neymar’s boosted price to score first is certainly a worthy strategy.

However, if the strikes are shared around the Chelsea midfielder is a decent price to notch at any point in proceedings.

Having scored in three of Brazil’s last seven internationals, Oscar is certainly best placed to provide scoring back up to the Barcelona star, especially with Fred looking so abject up top for Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side.
