Croatia vs. Brazil Prediction, Game Pick, Player Props: Backing Neymar in the 2022 World Cup Quarterfinals

Croatia takes on Brazil during the 2022 World Cup on Friday. A win for either club will put them in the World Cup Semifinals and two games away from winning the biggest tournament in the world.

While Brazil is a heavy favorite to win this match, Croatia has proven that they can beat anyone at any given moment. They aren't the best team, but they find ways to win and that deserves some credit.

Sportsbooks are favoring Brazil at -275 to win this 2022 World Cup game. Croatia, on the other hand, has +800 odds to win the match.

Croatia vs. Brazil Betting

With -275 odds, sportsbooks are saying that they think Brazil is going to win the match and it's tough to argue against that. Not only are they the favorite in this game, but they also have the best odds to win the entire tournament.

Public bettors are backing Brazil as well. While the odds aren't great, bettors with bigger bankrolls could throw a couple of units on this play and take home a nice profit.

Croatia vs. Brazil Predictions

I honestly think this game is going to be different than what most people do. Brazil is clearly the better team and there's no denying that. However, there has to be something said about Croatia.

Winning games at the World Cup is never an easy task and they've found exactly the way to do that. While that will likely come to an end on Friday, they've shown that they will fight and play hard. People are thinking Brazil can win by three goals, but I don't necessarily see that. I think Brazil wins this game by two goals and that's what I'm going to back.

Despite them winning by two goals, the game is going to be a tough battle for them. A win is a win, but Croatia will make it tough on them.

Croatia vs. Brazil Prediction: Brazil +105 (Bet $100 to collect $205) (odds available with DraftKings Sportsbook)

Croatia vs. Brazil prediction: Over 2.5 goals -130 (Bet $100 to collect $176) (odds available with DraftKings Sportsbook)

Croatia vs. Brazil Prop Bet Predictions: Neymar's Time to Shine

Brazil is filled with a ton of stars and that's the reason they're in the position that they're currently in. Whether it be Neymar or anyone else, Brazil has guys that can help them win any game.

However, I think Neymar is still their top guy. I'm a big believer that stars need to show up in big games, in any sport for that matter. Because of that, I'm going to back Neymar to have two shots on the net for -120 odds. That's my favorite play of the day here for Brazil vs. Croatia.

Neymar to score a goal has plus odds, but I rather be safe and take him to have two shots on the net.

Croatia vs. Brazil Prediction Prop Bet: Neymar to have two shots on the net -120 (Bet $100 to collect $183) (odds available with DraftKings Sportsbook)
