ALL four matches in the Confederations Cup so far have gone the way of the favourites with Brazil, Spain, Italy and Nigeria all winning.

The games tonight look slightly tougher with hosts Brazil facing Mexico (8pm) and Italy tackling Japan (11pm).

Brazil were convincing 3-0 winners against Japan in their opener without really hitting the heights but should have enough to see off a Mexico side who were unlucky to lose 2-1 to Italy.

Neymar got Brazil off to a flier against Japan with a third-minute goal and the Barcelona new boy is 4-1 (various) to score first while the samba stars are no bigger than 2-5 at Ladbrokes, Paddy Power and BetVictor to win.

I think they'll do it but it's a tad short and best bet could be both teams to score at 10-11 with William Hill. Mexico possess a threat from the likes of Javier Hernandez and have netted in their last five meetings with the Brazilians.

Italy had Mario Balotelli to thank for their late winner against Mexico and the Milan star is 4-1 at Ladbrokes and Paddy Power to boost his reputation further with the opening goal.

Japan played well against Brazil and created a few chances but didn't look like scoring. They do lack a top-class No.9 so the danger will come from the likes of Keisude Honda and Shinji Kagawa.

Italy's defence was poor at times against Mexico and both teams to score looks a value bet at 23-20 with William Hill and Paddy Power.

  1. Gerry 7 years ago

    Gone for a £50 double on Brazil and Italy at Hills returns just over £115.

    £2.50 Correct Score Double on Brazil 2-0 and Italy 2-0. £140 return.

    Going to do a few bets at ASCOT today and if any winnings, will stick a few more £ on the Brazil/Italy double!!

  2. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Paul 4/1 is best price online but Ladbrokes shop has Neymar and Balotelli @ 9/2. Two singles and a double for me.

  3. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Paul what about Pirlo anytime @ 11/2

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Chris, I’m thinking about Pirlo. Obviously I backed him to score first last time mainly coz it was his 100th cap. Asking a lot for him to do it again but the 11-2 is tempting.

  4. macca 7 years ago

    1/500 spain are now to win
    over 2.5 goals @ 1/100,,you want to get on chris before the price drops further

  5. RabTheHermit 7 years ago

    I noticed today Paddy is doing a few enhanced specials which would encompass a few of Mr F’s tips. But I am not sure how enhanced those odds are:

    Brazil and Italy to win tonight @13/8
    Balotelli to score and Italy to win @ 7/4
    All 4 teams to score in tonight’s Confederations Cup matches @ 3/1

    Or if you fancied Brazil, Italy and both to score all combined then £10 returns a few pennies short of £125.

  6. Ian Conway 7 years ago

    After my previous efforts, I have only got an outside chance with Mexico and Suarez top scorer.

    Think I will do same as Gerry and see how bets at Ascot go before I do a bet,if any

    P.S. Gael Force Ten won, Just!, so that’s a start

  7. Tommo 7 years ago

    Pirlo anytime 11/2 looks good value.

    Looking ahead to the Spain game, as we all know not much jumping out. As Chris Guy said re Iniesta to score at anytime @ 10/11 is tempting as is the 7/2 for him to score two or more.

    Depending on the starting eleven i think Raul Albiol to score at anytime would be the best value price @ 7/1 with Coral.

    Another i like the look of is Pedro hat-trick @ 7/1 with William Hill.

    No doubt once the line-up is confirmed tomorrow night all market prices will be slashed!!

  8. 1plus2 7 years ago

    Italy to score only 8/5 William hill

    Italy to Score more than 1.5 11/10 Bet365

  9. smokeit34 7 years ago

    nice find 1plus2 will have a look :)

  10. The UHT 7 years ago

    I like BITS in both games, as this tourney seems to have caught teams in end of season mood. They’d like to win, but they’re not looking to spend next month by the pool with their leg in a stukie. For me, stand-out bet is Italy to win and BITS at 10/3 Paddy P

  11. W 7 years ago

    Neymar FGS! :)

  12. weordie 7 years ago

    My favourite part was when people in work kept telling me Neymar would stink up this tourney

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      weordie, don’t think Barca would have paid £50m for a dud. Has always looked class to me.

    • weordie 7 years ago

      Aye Mr F I’ve been a fan of his for a few years now and he looked class when I went to see Brazil vs. NZ in the olympics (yes I know it was only NZ). Some people just need to put successful people down I guess

    • Sly 7 years ago

      Weordie if Ashley got Kinnear earlier he would prolly use his influence to sign him up. Imagine Kebab, Galtieriz and Neymar.

  13. Sly 7 years ago

    Mexico is getting crushed.

  14. weordie 7 years ago

    Sly don’t get me started on that one mate

    • Sly 7 years ago

      Heh i´m just messing with you mate. The Kinnear interview was hilarious :)

  15. Homicide 7 years ago

    I was wrong Neymar 2 goals in 2 so far

  16. Sly 7 years ago

    There you go mates :)

  17. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Neymar First Goal KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!

    Just back from my daughters dance class so missed the goal but heard it was a cracker.

    £550 back

    C’mon the Balotelli to score first goal to turn my £550 into £1705.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Chris, was a superb volley for Neymar and inside 10 minutes again. Let’s hope Balotelli does it again and need Italy for the treble after another long wait although will be watching this one. Will probably back Pirlo as well just in case.

  18. weordie 7 years ago

    Its embarrassing sly, one of our songs is “yohan, yohan cabaye. everybody knows his name” (to Rupert the bear) burrow we’ll have to add in “except our director of football”

  19. Sly 7 years ago

    Lol love geordie sense of humor. I actually read the whole thread on Newcastle online. Im waiting for Glenn Roeder for assistant manager now. He used to do wonders with Anamobi

  20. weordie 7 years ago

    Burrow? Stupid phone that was but now.

    Hahaha aye and graeme souness in as chairman

  21. Sly 7 years ago

    By the way wots Neymar doing? Didn´t Bale trademark that stupid heart celebration? He will get sued :p Oh another goal for Man City reject Jo. Actually thought about putting a cheeky bet on him scoring but forgot. And just give the spanish league already to Barcelona…Messi and Neymar

  22. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Getting on Kagawa anytime scorer 11/2 @ VC

  23. Boogabear 7 years ago

    I had neymar to score first and Brazil win and Balotelli to score first and Italy win double, £5 returns £300, so I got my fingers crossed haha

  24. Boogabear 7 years ago

    Sorry I had BATE to score over 2.5 with that as a treble lol

  25. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Yeah fingers crossed for Balotelli

  26. lee 7 years ago

    Giacxherini 11/2 anytime never heard of him 20 on lol

  27. lee 7 years ago

    Anyone know anything about him?

  28. Sly 7 years ago

    Juventus attacking midfielder mate

  29. lee 7 years ago

    OK cheers is he any good??? At scoring

  30. Sly 7 years ago

    He played 40 games for the italian champions last year, so he should have quality. Scored 2 goals last year. Bit of a midget so he won´t be scoring headers i guess.

  31. Boogabear 7 years ago

    Italy not looking good at all in opening 10 mins :/

  32. Homicide 7 years ago

    Japan look good

  33. W 7 years ago

    Japan are looking very dangerous!

  34. lee 7 years ago

    Cheers sly….. Japan are very good with the ball thinking BTTS

  35. Sly 7 years ago

    Hope you did it mate. Peno for Japan

  36. Homicide 7 years ago


  37. Sly 7 years ago

    Goal Tamagochi Honda

  38. Boogabear 7 years ago

    That’s balotelli to score first out the window. Just hope Italy can come back to win now

  39. Homicide 7 years ago

  43. lee 7 years ago

    Game over kagawa is epic

  44. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Pity about Balotelli not scoring first. Got him on next goal @ 9/2 and last goal @ 4/1

  45. lee 7 years ago

    That premiership flop to get send off? Any prices?

  46. Sly 7 years ago

    Haha Italy getting Olééés from Japan

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Sly, Italy been really poor. Was getting ready to back Japan at 3-1 in-play after their start but my Mac crashed. Btts is my only chance for redemption at the moment.

  47. Homicide 7 years ago

    75 won on japan 2nd goal
    70 won on kawga anytime.

    japan look good I expect more goals

  48. lee 7 years ago

  49. W 7 years ago

    Looks like a complete disaster of losses for me tonight

  50. lee 7 years ago

    Mr.t I can’t see Italy scoring the look really bad

  51. lee 7 years ago

  58. Sly 7 years ago

    Heh Giaccherini off the post. Damm you are really jinxed.

  59. AL 7 years ago

    ITALY to score in the 2nd half @ 4/9 bet365

    Not massive odds but got to fancy them to get at least another goal now they’ve got themselves back in the match just before half time

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      AL, got to fancy that. Will see how the second half starts but may have to back draw or Japan or both. At least Italy were much improved in last 10 minutes.

    • AL 7 years ago

      Was too good to turn down! Lumped on it big time! Easy money! Now hopefully they go on to win as I had a wee bet on the Brazil/Italy double aswell

    • AL 7 years ago

      Penalty to Italy! what a turn around if this goes in!

  60. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Kagawa @ 11/2 get in!!

  61. Boogabear 7 years ago

    F**king yes 2-2 come on!!!

  62. Boogabear 7 years ago

    Penalty lol Italy should win now

  63. Sly 7 years ago

    It ain´t over until Dilma Roussef sings. Italians will end up winning. Much more experienced and better when focused

  64. The UHT 7 years ago

    That was harsh. Get in!!!!!

  65. Homicide 7 years ago

    BTTS italy to win cmon!!

  66. Boogabear 7 years ago

    I had £100 on Italy to win, I had the brazil Italy double, and I had USA Costa Rica brazil and Italy 4fold, so hope this stays this way now :)

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Boogabear, can’t believe Italy have turned it around but not writing Japan off yet.

  67. Boogabear 7 years ago

    I really can’t believe they have turned it around either MrF, and I totally agree with you, this still looks like it could go either way. It’s so nerve wracking watching this match, never imagined the game being like this before kick off

  68. Boogabear 7 years ago

    I don’t think Italy are going to win this now

  69. The UHT 7 years ago

    Japan have been the better side for most of the game, but I still think Italy will nab a winner. Because… that’s what they do…

    • AL 7 years ago

      What a game!! That is all!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      The UHT, not sure Japan look better at the moment.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      The UHT, OK you’re officially a genius. Come on Italy hold on this time.

  70. Boogabear 7 years ago

    F**king yes yes yes yes yes hahahaha

  71. kev 7 years ago

    Spot on uht ;) good shout mr f!

  72. Homicide 7 years ago

    Unlucky japan. They both have played great football. Best game ive seen for awhile

  73. The UHT 7 years ago

    They so don’t deserve it – IF they hold on…! But th-that’s Italy…!

  74. Homicide 7 years ago


  75. The UHT 7 years ago

    Mr F… I am officially a gibbering wreck… What a game!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      The UHT, it was a cracker and great result but I feel for Japan who deserved something. I never got in a position to hedge as it kept changing so happy in the end to get another treble up.

    • The UHT 7 years ago

      Yeah, it’s been a cracking tournament for you and the site so far! Nice work! More importantly, I am now going to bed to tell Mrs UHT I am officially a genius. I’ll let you know if she agrees. ;-)

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      The UHT, she might judge you differently from me. As you say a good tournament so far. Fancy Uruguay against Nigeria but no idea how many goals Spain will settle for against Tahiti.

  76. Homicide 7 years ago

    I have money on italy btts but I want japan to win.

    Italy should hold now but what a crazy game

  77. Boogabear 7 years ago

    This is the most nerve wracking game I’ve seen in a long time, both teams with goals disallowed, and granted Japan have played the better game and should be the winners really, but Italy did what we needed them to do, just glad Buffon didn’t get sent off otherwise it would have been a completely different game. Well done people who had the Italy win

  78. Homicide 7 years ago

    Picked up a nice 190 thanks to that game.
    italy BTTS

    and two In play bets

  79. MrT 7 years ago

    Well done all! Only small stakes myself but seems many had a lot riding on it.
