The World Cup bracket challenge is always fun to do with friends (or everyone in the world), whether thatís at the official FIFA site or any major outlet. While itís difficult to get a perfect bracket, itís not impossible to predict every team to make it out of group stage. At the official FIFA game, more points are awarded if you predict a perfect group (15 points) than getting the World Cup winner correct (10 points). The best place to start your bracket is to look at the odds, conveniently available in each group preview provided by RotoWire. Iíll use the odds but also take risks in certain groups where the favorite is less defined. The World Cup is a tournament where underdogs rarely make runs to the final, which means itís usually not a good idea to go against one of the favorites.

For me, there are only six teams that have a chance to win it all (odds from bet365): Brazil (+400), Germany (+450), Spain (+600), France (+650
