World Cup Betting: Brazil vs Croatia Props
The 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals are upon us. The group stage commences later this afternoon as host nation Brazil's national team is set to take the field with Croatia. This means there are plenty of wagering opportunities and exotic prop markets to choose from. Sportsbook Review has assembled a directory of World Cup Prop Bets to optimise your sportsbook shopping experience. These bets are categorised by market type and listed in an easy to use format.
The Brazil vs. Croatia Prop Bets section lists some of the following wagering markets.
Goals Over / Under market
This is a rather straight-forward market which is determined by the amount of total goals scored. The current line is set at 2.5 goals with the over priced at +112 and the under -122. The best lines for either side of this market can be found at 5Dimes Sportsbook and Heritage Sports
Team Total market
This market is graded by the total amount of goals recorded by each side. The line ranges from 2 to Brazil to a half goal with Croatia. Once again, 5Dimes, Heritage, as well as Bookmaker have the best available betting odds.
Corners can be a key point in football matches, and are also a very popular market among sports bettors. Backing Brazil -3.5 is priced at -102 at Pinnacle Sports which is the lowest surcharge, whilst Bookmaker has Croatia on offer at +3.5 +100.
This market is multi-way and graded upon the exact predicted best score. Several sportsbooks offer this market and are featured on the World Cup Betting Directory.
Total Number of Goals: Odd/Even
Similar to a flipping of the coin prop in the American Super Bowl, this market is more of a crapshoot but a fun one enjoyed by soccer bettors. Right now, Pinnacle Sports and Bookmaker have the best return on both sides at -102 for Odd and +100 for Even respectively.
Player Performance Bets
Will Joa Alves Jo Score a goal? Will Hulk score a goal? These betting markets are tied to individual player performance. Fantasy buffs often enjoy betting these as well as those who are mathematically inclined. Pinnacle Sports, 5Dimes, Bet365, and Ladbrokes have the most expansive selection of these betting markets.
