I think Neymar and Hulk are deadly on the wings and pretty much the best wing play in the world(Hulk is a bull) but I wouldn't call them the favorites. The new crop of players are new and inexperienced and I don't think they have the mental strength or willpower(as cheesy as it sounds) to beat Spain, Italy or Germany.
A well disciplined team with a very good midfield can get by them easily I think.
