Colombians 5/2 ‘Draw No Bet’

Live on ITV1: Fri 21.00: We have two picks including a 5/2 (Skybet) chance as Brazil face Colombia in the last eight of the World Cup.

World Cup hosts and emphatic pre-tournament favourites Brazil predictably find themselves in the last eight but their path to the quarter final has been less than straightforward. Unconvincing at times in the group phase, Luis Felipe Scolari’s side required a dramatic penalty shootout to get past Chile in the second round, as a nation held its collective breath, and the Selecao have plenty to find if they are go on to lift the trophy

Nevertheless, they’re odds-on favourites to reach the semi-final at the expense of the exciting Colombians in Fortaleza on Friday, Winner.com pricing the home side at 5/6 to get through in normal time.

In addition, Brazil are just 2/5 via Stan James to eliminate their South American neighbours by any means but given the respective performances of both teams so far, it would be a bold move to back Scolari’s men at such a slender price. Indeed, bet365’s 15/4 about a victory for Los Cafeteros isn’t without appeal given that Jose Pekerman’s charges have a hundred percent record in the tournament so far and have looked as impressive as anyone.

Naturally, after the Brazilians drew with a similarly attack-minded Chile outfit, BetVictor’s 11/4, for a stalemate after 90 minutes will attract market support while a score draw at 7/2 (Paddy Power) is also set to prove popular but a more tempting alternative is Skybet’s 5/2 marked against the Colombians in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.

The mouth-watering showdown will undoubtedly be billed as a battle between two of the competition’s form players in Neymar and current top scorer James Rodriguez. The former is 4/1 with Ladbrokes to break the deadlock and at the other end, Rodriguez is an 8/1 shot at bet365 to put Pekerman’s troops 1-0 in front. The latter is also an enticing 10/3 via BetVictor to get on the scoresheet at any stage.

Recommended Bets:
Colombia to beat Brazil ‘Draw No Bet’ – 5/2 (Skybet)
James Rodriguez to score at any time – 10/3 (BetVictor)
