Brazil 1.25

Australia 3.75

Looking at Aussie at the line here. No Anstey but CJ is back and there is enough in this team to at least keep it close. Both Brazil and Australia aren't all that but the game winner is a toss up, give me the points everytime.

Australia is being underrated here.
Sure the Brazil team has Barbosa and Varejao, but Aussies just had a very close match with China and also beat France.
Brazil had a close game with USA which maybe is getting the odds out of whack.

I hope Australia wins some games. They are missing some of the better players as you pointed out, but Bogut is still a star and he can carry them to some wins. And this young fellow Brad Newley has impressed a lot of people. Don't count out Australia just yet.

You may want to take a close look at the draw, they have a nightmare draw mate.
