thumbnail Hello,

Phil Kitromilides believes that Brazil's recent excellent scoring form will continue and that the price of 10/11 for them to score at least three times represents great value

So far so good for Brazil in terms of their build-up to their home World Cup, with the hosts having won each of their last eight friendly matches.

Though the calibre of opponent has not been the highest, Luis Felipe Scolari's side have been functional and at times flamboyant, with their most recent 4-0 win over Panama an excellent overall performance.

bet365 price them at 1/5 (1.20) to record another win in their final match before the tournament.

Opponents Serbia, meanwhile, are offered at 12/1 (13.00) and the draw is available at 11/2 (6.50).

Backing Brazil in some way is the only realistic option given the gulf in quality and the World Cup hosts have been in fine scoring form.

Indeed, they have netted 16 goals in their last four matches, so investing in them to get on the scoresheet a good few times once more looks like a logical selection for the game.

They are priced at just 3/10 (1.33) to score over 1.5 goals which is too small for our purposes, but the price of 10/11 (1.91) for them to net over 2.5 goals looks generous.

Over the last year this bet has paid out nine times in matches involving the South Americans, while Serbia have not kept a clean sheet in their last five fixtures.

The likes of Panama and Jamaica have managed to find the back of the net against the Balkan nation in recent months meaning that Brazil's in form forwards, including Neymar and Hulk, who both scored earlier in the week against Panama, should have little problem in scoring at least three times.
