Switzerland vs Cameroon, Uruguay vs South Korea, Portugal vs Ghana and Brazil vs Serbia

Finally, the last remaining groups to take part in the World Cup finals kicked off Thanksgiving as Brazil and Portugal made their first appearances at the 2022 World Cup.

World Cup favourites are the clear top choice to win Group G while Portugal are the favorites in Group H. While you’ll likely spend more time with family and watch NFL football on Thursdays than you do the World Cup, there are still four games to get some action. Here’s what you need to know.

Switzerland vs Cameroon

5 a.m. ET Thursday, FS1

Switzerland finished third in its group at Euro 2020 but advanced to the quarter-finals, losing there to Spain on penalties after beating France on penalties in the round of 16. Switzerland is right in this place at only -130.

Uruguay versus South Korea

8 a.m. ET, FS1

This is the game that is expected to be the lowest scored game. Uruguay still have Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez on the list, although Darwin Nunes is poised to take the helm of the front line. Heung-min Son of Tottenham is capable of playing a match against himself, especially if he can find space on the table.

Portugal versus Ghana

11 a.m. ET, Fox

How does the turmoil in Manchester United affect the Portugal squad? Captain Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes are no longer teammates after Ronaldo’s contract was terminated on Tuesday. Ronaldo is set to be the starting striker for the team on Thursday, although it’s fair to wonder if Portugal would have a better chance of winning the World Cup if he were on the bench.

Brazil vs Serbia

2 p.m. EST, Fox

Serbia is not a huge underdog from the World Cup favourites, due to the talent on the roster. Aleksandar Mitrović and Duzan Vlahović are a powerful attacking duo and Sergej Milinković-Savic is a player the top clubs have always wanted. We still take the Brazilians to win this one, but our favorite bet is to score under 2.5 goals at +100.
