5. Neymar is Likely to Start With a Bang

Everybody’s favorite for the first goal is Brazil’s Neymar. The best odds on him scoring the first goal at the World Cup 2014 are 400 Ladbrokes. Brazil’s other powerhouse forward, Hulk, is a good bet at 800 with Spread Ex. For Croatia, all of the players are outsider odds with Hull City forward Nikica Jelavic leading the way at 1800 with Bet 365.
