Will Brazil win the FIFA World Cup 2014

Brazil may beat Germany to win soccer’s World Cup and also will score the most goals, according to a survey across 52 countries.The tournament’s host nation eclipsed Germany and Argentina as the top choice in a Bloomberg News poll published on Tuesday. Brazil is also tipped to find the net the most times, topping Argentina,Spain and Italy .

Projections of a sixth World Cup victory for Brazil mesh with bookmaker odds and forecasts based on economic models created by Goldman Sachs Group Inc., UniCredit SpA and Danske Bank A/S.

“It’s kind of hard to bet against Brazil—they have home advantage, the climate, crowd and recent record,” said Peter Dixon, a poll participant believes. “It’s pretty obvious if you look at Brazil’s soccer rankings who should win.” Respondents were asked to select their top four teams for the tournament, which kicks off on 12 June with Brazil playing Croatia in the opening match. The competition ends on 13 July with a final taking place at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Football is 90 minutes and rest is theory, no matter what the surveys project, probably the best World Cup betting news will give an expert insight behind every game , where you have everything to win.

The predictions for the World Cup winner centered almost exclusively on Brazil, Germany, Argentina and Spain. While few believe Portugal, Italy and Uruguay might prove to be surprise .

“It seems as if this isn't going to be a wide open tournament,” said Lou Crandall, chief economist at Wrightson ICAP LLC in Jersey City, New Jersey. “I spent a lot of time trying to forge a way for Italy to get as far as the final four, but couldn't get them there.”

England Call
Breaking away from the consensus, most English pundits put their money on England , though they admit the analysis is based on well reasoned arguments such as patterns of World Cup winners and the performance of previous champions. They apply these to a model that points to Brazil having most chance of winning followed by Germany, Spain, and France.
“To leave it at that would be boring and too conventional,” they said. “So we introduce what some would call our bias but we like to think of as a discretionary overlay.”
