Get ready for FIFA’s top-ranked team to make its debut at the 2022 World Cup with the latest Serbia vs. Brazil odds and betting insights from FanDuel Sportsbook.
With the 2022 FIFA World Cup kicks well underway, one of the anticipated first-week matches of the tournament takes place on Thursday, Nov. 24, between Brazil and Serbia.
No country has won more than Brazil’s five World Cups. While they haven’t won since 2002, the Brazilians are always a top pick to win it all and won’t hesitate to hit the gas right out of the gate. That’ll make things tough for a Serbian team looking to make it past the group stage for the first time since 1998.
Can Brazil continue their dominance on football’s biggest stage? Or will Serbia be able to dig down deep enough for one of the biggest wins in the country’s history?

Serbia-Brazil Prediction & Pick
The odds point to this showdown being a mismatch and it’s hard to disagree. Brazil is an international powerhouse that doesn’t flinch against teams on Serbia’s level. The Serbians have decent defensive potential, but they have yet to show that they can handle one of the top favorites to win the World Cup.
Serbia also has trouble scoring at the World Cup, tallying just six goals over their last nine tournament matches. Considering how the Brazilians amassed eight goals in 2018 alone and have scored 18 times in their last five international games, I’m going with Brazil to open the event with a victory.
FINAL SCORE PREDICTION: Brazil: 2 | Serbia: 0
