2014 World Cup Free Picks – Group B Chile vs. Australia Odds

Australia vs Chile Prediction – June 13

Chile and Australia kick off their World Cup 2014 campaign June 13 – each team looking for the second qualifying spot in Group B – the #1 spot has all but been conceded to the Spanish who are the class of the Group. [ad-1519080]

Chile (0-0-0) vs. Australia (0-0-0)
Date/Time: Friday 13 June 2014 Kick-off: 23:00 BST
Venue: Arena Pantanal, Cuiaba
Chile vs. Australia Betting Lines 
Chile -1 -115 -200 Ov 2, 2½ -117
Australia +1 -105 +575 Un 2, 2½ -103

Australia looks like the weak cousin in the Group while Chile should be right in the mix along with the Netherlands to move on to the knock-out stage.

Chile qualified for the World Cup with relative ease and has opened a few eyes along the way. An opening match against Australia may exactly what this team needs to build up a little mojo for the rest of the tournament.

The attack seems solid but the defense has and still is a huge question mark for this team – they surrendered almost as many goals as they scored during qualifying.
Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal are a world class attack – as mentioned goal scoring shouldn’t be a problem in the first game against Australia. But look to Chile to work on their much maligned yet experienced defense corp. in Game 1.

The Chileans have a terrific opportunity to work out a few of the obvious kinks as Australia isn’t expected to pose much of a threat.

Not a whole lot is expected from Australia in 2014 – Chile looks as though they will be the first team to make an example of the team from down under.

Australia was OK during the Asian qualifying stage but will likely be in tough on football’s biggest stage.

Despite Australia’s unforeseen success in 2010, an aging group of players has the potential to be run all over in 2014.

Tim Cahill, age 34, Mark Schwarzer, age 41 and Mark Bresciano, age 34 are well past their prime but are still Australia’s best players. Experiences aside, the Australians don’t seem to have the speed or the class to keep up in this one.

Betting Prediction

It is widely expected that Australia remains winless in the World Cup. It isn’t a matter of IF Chile will win it is more a matter of how much they will win by. Chile, on their home continent, against an aging, slowing Australian team should win this game easily.

Chile -200 on the Moneyline is a safe play but I am looking at playing Chile -1 (-115) as well. The opener for both teams has a 3-0 or 4-0 score written all over it. Chile makes a huge statement on June 13 at the expense of the team down under!
