Lusail Iconic Stadium World Cup 2022 Qatar
The African nation need a win against the tournament favourites to keep alive their World Cup hopes but the South Americans should be too strong

Cameroon takes on Brazil on Friday, Dec. 2, in what is a must-win game for the Indomitable Lions. If they can secure three points and Serbia can defeat Switzerland, Cameroon has a chance to advance.

The problem is that Brazil have lived up to lofty expectations as the top team in the tournament so far. They've been tough to break down and have yet to concede a goal.

The good news for Cameroon is that Brazil have essentially locked up first place, so they could be resting some key players. With that in mind, let's dive into the best bets and props for this Group G match between Cameroon and Brazil.

Cameroon vs Brazil Current Odds

  • 3-Way Handicap: Cameroon (+675) | Draw (+400) | Brazil (-263)
  • Draw No Bet: Cameroon (+475) | Brazil (-833)
  • Over/Under Goals: Over 2.5 (-152) | Under 2.5 (+105)

Cameroon vs Brazil odds are current as of Thursday, Dec. 1, from BetMGM Sportsbook unless otherwise noted.

Brazil are relatively high favorites, but not as much as you might have expected. This is because they don't have much to play for here and may be resting some of their players.

We're getting some good value on the Under at plus money in this spot. Brazil haven't given up a goal yet, so if that continues, they'd need a 3-0 win to push this Over the number.

Cameroon vs Brazil Prediction

Brazil 2-0 Cameroon

While Brazil may rest some players, they have a stacked team filled with depth. It won't hurt them too much, as there are so many good players on this bench, like Antony and Gabriel Jesus.

Cameroon needed a second-half comeback to overcome a 3-1 deficit against Serbia in their last match. Prior to that, they lost 1-0 to Switzerland.

The Indomitable Lions are overmatched here, taking on a Brazil side that has only conceded a combined 0.62 expected goals in their two games. It's going to be difficult for Cameroon to score.

Look for Brazil to get another win with a clean sheet.

Brazil's 0.62 expected goals allowed is an impressive stat. Through two games, they've given up only 11 shot attempts, none of which went on target.

This is not anything new, as this is a team that allowed only five goals in 17 matches during CONMEBOL qualifying. It's tough to see Cameroon finding a goal here.

While I do like the Under as well, this prop looks safer because there's always a chance that Brazil can pour on goals, especially against a vulnerable Cameroon side.
