2) Quarterfinals: while Belgium is heavily favored to beat Japan, they are going to be underdogs against Brazil (if they meet). Both France and Argentina would be big favorites over either Portugal or Uruguay. Spain and England would be heavily favored in quarters if they get there.

3) Semifinals: Spain versus Brazil is by far the most likely match-up.

4) Finals: Tight would be favored in Spain versus Brazil, but Brazil would be favored at this point.
