Friendly international, Maryland, 12am, live on ESPN

USA play host to Brazil in Maryland days after making Scotland play like a bunch of girls.

Their 5-1 win didn't flatter the hosts but the Scots looked well off the pace and I can't imagine Brazil will be swept aside the same way.

The Brazilians, despite having a weakened squad, destroyed Denmark 3-1 at the weekend and with both teams full of confidence it should be a cracking contest. Firstly, I can see there being goals and over 2.75 pays 1-1 at bet365 and BetVictor.

Landon Donovan hit a hat-trick against the Scots and could be joined in the starting line-up byClint Dempsey who has recovered from a hamstring injury. Donovan is 11-1 at Paddy power to score first with Dempsey 8-1 with the same firm.

To net at any time Donovan is a decent-looking 7-2 with Paddy Power while Fulham hitman Demps is 13-5 with the Irish firm.

Brazil’s much-wanted Porto star Hulk hit a double against the Danes and is 8-5 at Paddy Power to net again, 11-2 to score first.

Picking a winner isn't easy but for sure Brazil look a tad short at 5-6 with Coral. The USA are 10-3 at William Hill and Paddy Power while the draw pays 14-5 with BetVictor. I'd consider the US plus one at 10-11 with Paddy Power and that keeps the draw on side.

As always check starting line-ups before having bet, especially on scorers.

    took damiao anytime 6/4 bet 365 and donovan anytime 9/4 same firm

    tempted to get 6/1 william hill with bradley as he came up trumps for me against us at 5/1 last time although brazil will prove a tougher test

    If kick off is 1am what sorta time do you think Line ups will be revealed?
    Ie got work tomorrow so don’t wanna stay up too late but think there’s some good money to be made on the USA scorers!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      George, I thought it was starting at midnight but that could be wrong. You usually get starting line-ups at least 30 minutes before kick-off.

  4. Jonathan Grieve 12 years ago

    Where do u get the starting lineups for all the games guys? Is there somewhere u can get them for all games?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      I’d be looking to get them from ESPN.

  5. craig alves 12 years ago

    google ‘soccerway brazil v usa’ george3rd link down. ive had team news there before but its not there yet, also get form gl scorers etc, both teams won last 5 games so could be one for over 2.5gls, BTTS, 2-1 brazil win according to form but friendlies anything can happen.

  6. James Coyle 12 years ago

    I’ve backed the Americans at 14/5 Draw No Bet. The spirit in which they played against Scotland was very impressive. I won’t see the game tonight but will set it on the Sky+. Best of luck to anyone getting involved.

  8. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Paul did you get the 72 page special from the racing post. It’s brilliant and full of in depth details on all teams. I did say I fancied Spain or Germany. I understand these two are the favs to win but I’m starting to warm to Germany.

    Anyway my eyes nearly popped out my head when I seen an ad in the pullout for new telephone customers betting with Paddy Power. They are offering 9/1 for Germany to win which is a huge gamble they are taking. I had to take a double take. I’ve already got an account but my brother hasn’t :-). Maximum stake is £100. Can you find out Paul if they are offering treble the odds for all teams or just 9/1 on Germany. If they are offering this for all teams then I just might convince my mum and granny to open an account also if you catch my drift lol. 9/1 Germany and possibly 15/2 Spain, Holland 21/1 and France 36/1. Surely not. In that case it will be £100 on each team. Surely a guaranteed money making exercise.

    Can you find this out mate

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, I’ll try to get one tomorrow or pick one up in the office. Still trying to work out all these friendlies and there are loads more at the weekend. But will start looking seriously at Euro 2012 at the end of the week and maybe put up some tips in the paper on Saturday.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, I’ll call Paddy Power tomorrow but pretty sure that offer will only be on Germany. They can take an opinion on one side and lay it off if necessary but they couldn’t do that for every team.

  9. craig alves 12 years ago

    BRAZIL Rafael; Marcelo, Juan Jesus, Thiago Silva, Danilo; Oscar, Rômulo, Sandro; Hulk, Leandro Damião, Neymar
    USA Howard; Cherundolo, Bocanegra, Onyewu, Johnson; Bradley, Edu, Jones; Donovan, Altidore, Torres”

    think these are the teams, not 100% sure

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, that would be pretty much as expected without Dempsey and maybe Torres is in there instead. Looks like a game of goals and I’ll go with the over 2.75 at evens and Hulk or Neymar to score. Would have slightly favoured Brazil if USA hadn’t looked so good against Scotland.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, took Neymar to score after seeing the teams and no Dempsey. Off to bet happy now.

  10. Danny 12 years ago

    never took bradley anytime he will show his defensive ability… cannot stand the american commentators give me gary neville any day

  11. Danny 12 years ago

    big waal he scored a penalty he looks like a wee boy he would get bullied if he went to epl thats why hes not/never will make the european move simply not got the all round ability

  12. Danny 12 years ago

    5 goals not one anytime correct far too sauced just now to bother.. my bank/head will get the bulk of the effect in 7 hours time

  13. craig alves 12 years ago

    wulda bn good if 3-1m bit gutted tbh tho 87 mins, at least get suhin back tho no much but playin £

  14. Marc Currie 12 years ago

    Chris is this 9/1 PP Germany offer for real and still available? I don’t read the racing post but I will pick one up today for the pull out. I bought 442 mag recently for the euros pull out but it is very poor and full of the ‘obvious’ stats and team analysis etc. Very little effort went into it IO feel. Will try RP to see if it’s any better.

    I’ve already backed Germany heavily to reach the semi’s (easy QF if they make it through tough group)at least @ 9/10 with bwin. I flagged it up on here as every othet bookie was around 1/2. Bwin slashed the odds within 48hrs so I hope others got on at the very generous price.

    If this treble odds offer is available I will be on it.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Marc, it’s a promotional offer for new customers.

    • Marc Currie 12 years ago

      Paul, yes I understand this. Sorry if I wasn’t clear but what I want to know – Is this promotional offer still available to ‘new’ customers?

  15. craig alves 12 years ago

    its on all the time i think, either that or bet £50 get free £100 bet a while back.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, due to a technical problem I can’t put posts at the moment but looking at Germany -1 and France to win. Also fancy Scotland Under-21s away to Bulgaria and will that man Rhodes be on target? Back up now so will put some tips on.

  16. mattysmev 12 years ago
