Brazil are second favourites for Copa America glory at an alluring 5/2 with Boylesports and they should get their campaign off to a winning start as they tackle Venezuela. However, bet365’s 1/5 is the best price posted against a victory for Mano Menezes’ charges so a straightforward Brazil success isn’t exactly going to pay off the mortgage.
Nevertheless, punters could still pocket a profit by backing the Selecao in the handicaps where Stan James price the favourites at 4/7 when Venezuela kick off with a goal start. That would require Brazil to prevail by at least two clear goals but Menezes’ troops could run out more comfortable winners and they might be worth a flutter at 7/5 courtesy of Coral, when starting from two goals behind.
More specifically, a 3-0 triumph is a 7/1 shot at Skybet and for banker-hunters, it’s easy to see the eight-times Copa America winners getting their noses in front in the first half so a case can be made for the 8/13 chalked by bet365 against Brazil leading at the interval and the final whistle.
In attack meanwhile, in-demand striker Neymar is 11/10 with Sportingbet to impress potential suitors by getting on the scoresheet.
