Odds, picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: Brazil -6000
There are a lot of spots in this tournament where upsets can happen. This doesn’t seem to be on of them. Brazil are entering this World Cup with wins over Germany and Chile after a string of poor results. They’ll also be confident and determined to start legend Marta’s final World Cup off in style. On the flip side, Panama just got blasted by Spain and Japan ahead of the competition with a -12 goal differential across both matches.
Panama did have a 1-1 draw against Colombia but this team clearly isn’t built to handle more talented teams. Taking Brazil against the spread (-2.5 at -235 and -3.5 +100) is the best way to get value for what should be an easy three points for the South American side.
