Brazil Stats & Form
When you think about football, the first country that comes to your mind is Brazil. They are the most successful country in the history of the World Cup lifting the trophy five times.
Brazil is among the top favorites to win regardless of the competition. Their style of play is unique and most of the teams have not found a solution for them.
Neymar will lead the Brazilians once again and hopefully, they will make it to the very end.
Brazil finished on top of the CONMEBOL qualifying group with 45 points as they had 14 wins and 3 draws in 17 games.
Brazil is the only nation that has played in every World Cup. They have won the trophy 5 times, most recently in 2002.
Serbia Stats & Form
After missing the tournament in 2014, Serbia has made it to the World Cup for the second consecutive time. Their best results were when the country was Yugoslavia and in recent years, they are considered a team with great individuals but the team’s success is yet to be made.
Serbia had a tough qualifying group but they managed to beat Portugal in the last round and book their ticket for Qatar avoiding the Playoffs. Fulham’s striker Aleksandar Mitrovic was the hero of the nation with a last-minute goal against Portugal. He, Luka Jovic and Dusan Vlahovic are maybe the best striking trio at the World Cup.
Team captain Dusan Tadic is one of the best playmakers in the world and he will be the main man in the team of coach Dragan Stojkovic who was one of the top stars in the 1990 World Cup.
Serbia has won 7 of their last 10 games and are ready for redemption against the team they lost 2-0 to in Russia in 2018.
The last time Serbia made it out of the group stage was in 1998 when they lost to Netherlands in the round of 16. In their last two appearances at the World Cup, Serbia finished in 23rd place.

Brazil vs. Serbia Betting Odds
Brazil is a huge favorite in the game against Serbia with -211 odds in their favor while Serbia is at 575. The odds for a draw are set at 342.
The total goals margin is set at 2.5 with -121 for over and -102 for under.
Brazil is always among the favorites no matter what football competition is in place. The five-time world cup winner has a young team led by Neymar who has a lot to prove in the national team. The Brazilians play their own game for which not many teams have a response. They will definitely have the possession against any team including Serbia. The Serbs have not made any significant football success but when you take a look at their roster, they are definitely a team that deserves every respect. Dusan Tadic is one of the best playmakers in the world of football and with strikers such Dusan Vlahovic and Aleksandar Mitrovic, no defense will have an easy job against this Balkan nation. Brazil does not have a defense that will hold Serbia scoreless and therefore placing a bet on over 2.5 goals seems like the right choice for this game.
