Brazil Likely to Win World Cup Opener, but Can They Go All the Way?

Intertops Sportsbook Expects World Cup Opening Win for Brazil but Wonders if Home Team can Handle the PressureWorld Cup expectations of the Brazilian team are very high. They'll most likely win their opening match against Croatia but you have to wonder if they can handle the pressure and go all the way to winning the Cup.

Brazil has won five World Cup titles -- more than any other country.  They'll also have home-advantage this time around so it could happen!

Right now, Intertops Sportsbook bookmakers strongly favor the home team (-303) to beat Croatia (+900) in the World Cup opening match on Thursday, but they aren’t entirely convinced the Selecao can live up to the enormous pressure to win the title.

“Brazil does, of course, have a good chance of going all the way,” observed an Intertops bookmaker, “But their South American rivals, Argentina, will also be a big threat, especially if superstar Lionel Messi can find his top form again after his rather disappointing end to the season. Who knows – but I somehow doubt the Cup will be coming back to Europe this year!”

I do too!  After all, no European team has ever won the title in South America.  Plus, European teams have suffered some serious injuries lately, including reigning World Footballer of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) and Spain’s prolific goalscorer Diego Costa. Another title hopeful France has already lost the services of Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery with a back injury.

Intertops Sportsbook will take bets on every World Cup match in Brazil. In addition to outright winner, it has posted dozens of bets on every game including Half Time Results, Correct Final Score and Time of First Goal.
