Competition: Brazil Serie B

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 8/15 @ Pribet

Looking to extend on their promotion charge in the early hours of Tuesday, Avai will welcome Novorizontino to the Ressacada.

Starting with the hosts, while Avai might have been disappointed last season as they limped their way to a bottom-half finish, the Florianopolis-based outfit have made a string of improvements this time around. Battling it out at the top of the Serie B table and remarkably setting their sights on a lucrative top-flight return, Time da Raca have gained plenty of plaudits for their rugged approach. However, left disappointed last time out as they signed off June with a 1-1 stalemate against Amazonas, they have had to settle for a single point in all of their previous three Serie B appearances. Nevertheless, looking to make a statement of intent here, Avai have remarkably not suffered a single defeat from any of their last 11 straight outings – a purple patch that stems all the way back to a 2-0 loss against Santos on April 27th. It should also be noted, Tuesday’s hosts have seen six of their previous seven appearances finish with under 2.5 goals.

As for the visitors, while Novorizontino might have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous eight Serie B appearances, Eduardo Baptista’s men are seeking some recent stability. Last seen suffering a collapse on home soil as they played out a 1-1 stalemate against Mirassol, the former Vila Nova boss finds his squad sat in second-tier limbo. Claiming just a sole victory from any of their last four Serie B showdowns, they have failed to muster back-to-back wins since opening up the 2024 campaign. Opening up the midweek fixtures battling it out in the bottom-half of the standings, Tuesday’s guests should also be concerned by their most recent trip to Avai. It should be noted, Novorizontino suffered a 1-0 defeat when they travelled to the Ressacada last season. Likewise, with Baptista’s camp have also seen three of their previous four battles outside of Sao Paulo finish with under 1.5 goals.
