Competition: Copa America
Market: Brazil to win against Venezuela
Odds: 8/13 @ Bet 365
Brazil lock horns with Venezuela in their final Copa America group game, and are desperate for a win to stand a chance of progressing into the knockout stages. All four sides (Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela) in Group C are locked on three points from their first two games, so anybody can still go through or be eliminated.
Goal difference is also identical with all the teams, but Brazil are top based on their goals scored and head-to-head record against current runners-up Peru. They need a win tonight to guarantee a place in the next round potentially as group winners, but a draw could also be enough to finish in the top-two. Third place can still qualify as the best-placed loser, so points are crucial regardless.
Venezuela are in as good a position as any to progress, but they have a task seeing past Brazil. They most recently lost to the un-fancied Peru, so they will have an even harder challenging beating one of the tournament favourites. As a result, Bet 365 are backing Brazil with odds of 8/13 to get all three points tonight to make the knockouts.
