Chile and Australia are the other game in Group B action (I already did a post for Holland vs Spain). Group B is really supposed to be a 3-horse race for the top 2 spots in the group. Spain, Holland and Chile are seen as top quality teams, while Australia was unfortunate to be drawn into this group and will really now try to play the role of spoiler in this World Cup. This also means that this game is pretty close to a must win for Chile. They will not be happy with a draw here because both the Dutch and Spanish are expected to win their games against Australia.

Here are the 1×2 odds for this game. Bet365.com has 131 other lines that you can bet on for every single World Cup match. This is just the main betting option, but for those more adventurous bettors I suggest checking out the props available at Bet365.
I like Chile to find a way to win this game. Like I said before this is close to a must win game for Chile and they will understand how important the three points are in this game. I expect Australia to play a very defensive game, but Chile has the talent and offensive ability to break through Australia’s defenses and score enough goals to win the game.
Chile has scored many goals in their qualifying matches and this will be a big game for Alexis Sanchez who is 50/1 to win the golden boot if he is going to have a shot at it. Australia has been known to give up a lot of goals to quality teams (6-0 loss to France in November, 4-3 loss to Ecuador in March) and I think Chile falls into that category. Look for Chile to control this game from the outset and put the ball in the back of the Australia net a few times to come away with an easy win and 3 points.
My Pick: Chile @ 1.44 from Bet365.com.
