Switzerland Team Info – A Definite Threat
Switzerland has quite a good track record in the World Cup. They reached the quarter finals in the first two World Cups that were held in Europe, and then they reached the quarter finals once again in 1954, in the World Cup that they hosted. The Swiss team have had some good runs in recent World Cups too, reaching the round of 16 in 2006, 2014, and 2018. They caused shockwaves in the world of football when they beat France in the 2020 European Championship round of 16. In their qualifiers, they also caused some upset as they stole the top spot from Italy, who then lost in the playoffs and did not qualify for the World Cup. Switzerland won 5 of their 8 games, scoring 15 goals and only conceding two times.
Breel Embolo, the young Swiss striker, was the top goal scorer in the qualifier group, scoring 3 goals. In attack, they also have Haris Seferovic, who has scored 25 goals for his country in 86 games. In their midfield, Switzerland have 3 Premier League players in Granit Xhaka, Remo Freuler, and Denis Zakaria, who play for Arsenal, Nottingham Forest, and Chelsea. They can also pick Djibril Sow, Renato Steffen, or Xherdan Shaqiri, who is the current top goal scorer with 26 goals. In defence, they have more Premier League players, in Fabian Schar and Manuel Akanji, who play for Newcastle United and Manchester City. Ricardo Rodriguez, Nico Elvedi, and Kevin Mbabu may also play in the Swiss defence. Their goalkeeper is Yann Sommer, who plays for Borussia Monchengladbach, and was vital in keeping 6 clean sheets in the qualifiers.
Cameroon Team Info – Impressive in Qualifying
Cameroon qualified for their 8th World Cup in 2022. On the back of a third place finish at the Africa Cup of Nations, the team hammered through their World Cup qualifiers, winning 6 of their 8 games and scoring 16 goals in the process. Cameroon is most famous for producing Samuel Eto'o, a player who went on to win the Champions League and play in Inter, Chelsea, and many other historic clubs. Their current team may not have a player of the same calibre as Eto'o, who won 2 Africa Cup of Nations titles for Cameroon, but Cameroon can make an impact at this World Cup.
They have a fairly solid back line, with their goalkeeper Andre Onana, and defenders Nicols Nkoulou, Collins Fai, Nouhou Tolo, Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui, and Ambroise Oyongo. Andre Onana plays for Inter Milan, and midfielders Martin Hongla and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa also play in the Serie A, for Udinese and Napoli. There are also Georges Mandjeck, Pierre Kunde, and Samuel Gouet who can play in the middle of the field. Up front, Cameroon have their current top goal scorer and captain, Vincent Aboubakar. Alongside him, they can play Karl Toko Ekambi, Moumi Ngamaleu, or Bayern Munich's Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Switzerland vs Cameroon Betting Preview
If you want to bet on the match between Switzerland and Cameroon, you will find plenty of great bets. Whether you think one team will hammer the other, or the two are more evenly matched and you are hesitant on which team to bet on, you will be able to find some great bets.
For example, if you think Switzerland will smash Cameroon, you can bet on them to win with handicaps, or bet on them to win and the match to end in over a certain number of goals.
On the other hand, if you think that there is not much of a gap between the two teams, you may be able to pick from bets such as double chance or draw no bet, where you have more insurance.
Double chance is a bet where you can pick two out of the possible three outcomes in a match. In this match, you will be able to bet on Switzerland to win or the two teams to draw, Cameroon or the two teams to draw, or on either Switzerland or Cameroon to win.
Draw No Bet
You can pick the winner of the match between Switzerland and Cameroon with draw no bet. This is a useful bet because you only need to pick the team that wins and if the game ends goalless or there is a late equaliser, the bet is cancelled and you will receive a refund.
Handicaps are bets on a team to win by scoring a certain number of goals or more than their opponent. There are multiple negative numbers with increasing odds and the one you pick will be added to the score of your team, and they should still win the match. Alternatively, you can use a reverse handicap that favours your team. These will be positive numbers that are added to your team’s score but they come at decreasing odds.
If you picked Switzerland to beat Cameroon and applied a handicap of -1.5 then you will need Switzerland to finish the game at least 2 goals ahead of Cameroon. If you applied a handicap of -2 then you will need Switzerland to finish the game 3 goals ahead of Cameroon, but if they only managed to score 2 then the scores will be level and you will receive a refund.
If you set a handicap of -1.75 then your stake will be halved and half of it will be put on a handicap of -1.5 and the other on a handicap of -2. Therefore, if Switzerland won the game by 3 or more goals then both halves of your bet will be fulfilled and you will receive your full winnings. If they only manage to score 2 goals more than Cameroon then the -1.5 half of your bet will pay out in full whilst the -2 half of your bet will be refunded.
Over/Under Total Goals
Total goal bets are not related to who wins the match but only relate to how many goals both teams will score in the match. It uses the over/under format whereby you can bet on the match to finish over or under a line of your choice. For example, if you pick a line of 2.5 and bet over, you will need Switzerland and Cameroon to score a combined 3 goals or more. If you bet under the line of 2.5 then you will need Switzerland and Cameroon to score a combined 2 goals or less.
