Cameroon is an underdog in the soccer odds against Australia.

Why Bet on Cameroon?

Team Cameroon really struggled in the opener against Chile. Cameroon was unable to score in the game, and only got 8 shots on goal. One only really seemed like a great scoring chance. In fact, Cameroon had the possession of the ball just 34%. Cameroon plays a 4-3- 3 attacking style of offense.

The goaltender for Cameroon has been Fabrice Ondoa. The 21 year old has been pretty solid, but appears to be a little overwhelmed in the Confederation Cup action. Defensemen surrounding Ondoa include Collins Fai, Adolphe Teikeu, Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjiu and Ernest Mabouka.

Betting Pick & Prediction

Australia is going to win this match. Whoever loses this match is pretty much eliminated from having any real chance at getting through their group. The Australian team was much more competitive in their opening match, and that expects to be the case in this one as well. Australia will likely blank Cameroon.

Team Australia will get on the scoreboard early, and then keep Cameroon out of the offensive end. It will be a surprise when Cameroon gets shots on goal. In the end, Australia is the easy bet to make here. Bet Team Australia 23/10 odds over Cameroon.
