Brazil vs. Uruguay: Weather, TV, Broadcast, CONCACAF World Cup Qualifier Betting Odds

Uruguay’s four-day qualifying leg has to be among the toughest faced by any nation in the world involved in qualifying for the World Cup: it goes from losing 3-0 on the road to Lionel Messi and the reigning South American champions, Argentina, even traveling to the Amazon. and the city of Manaus to face undefeated Brazil on Thursday.

Brazil may no longer be perfect after their 0-0 draw in Colombia on Sunday, but they are undefeated and have yet to give up a goal at home in qualifying for the World Cup. That’s how strong No. 2 is. The world ranked 2 team has been with almost a year before the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Comfortably perched atop the South American standings, Brazil (9-0-1, 28 points) is easy to book their ticket to Qatar for upcoming matches, but they measure themselves differently than other nations. When you take the field at the Amazon Arena in Manaus to play for the first time in front of the fans, 14,000 are expected, you will want to win, entertain and concede nothing to the opposition.

Uruguay (4-3-4, 16 points) are also in a decent place: they are in fourth place, which would be enough to secure a direct place to Qatar (the top four teams qualify directly while fifth place is involved in a play) in series). But it will have to fight the challenge of Colombia, Paraguay, Peru and Chile.

With players like Luis Suárez (Uruguay), Edinson Cavani (Uruguay), Neymar (Brazil) and Lucas Paqueta (Brazil) on the field, this is the showdown of the 12 of 18 rounds of matches in South America, even if it feels like it. As we all know, this is likely to happen: Brazil are undefeated at 59 at home (47-0-12) and Uruguay have never achieved a qualifying win in Brazil (although they have three draws).

Brazil vs. Uruguay: betting odds and prediction

Fees courtesy of DraftKings

Choose: Brazil -1 Asian Handicap (-115)

Although Uruguay had their chances against Argentina on Sunday, the 3-0 loss was ultimately an accurate reflection of the talent gap between the two teams. It will be the same case in Manaus, and while the result may not be that uneven, Brazil should at least be a better goal. Brazil also have the best team defense in the tournament – three goals allowed in 10 games – and it won’t be easily scored.

The Asian Handicap Brazil -1 may not be very adventurous, but neither is the game we will see between these two teams. It’s decent protection if the Selecao have a bad day in front of goal.

Prediction: Brazil 2, Uruguay 0

  • Money line: Brazil -210 / Draw +310 / Uruguay +750
  • Spread (Asian handicap): Brazil -1 (-110) / Uruguay +1 (+100)
  • O / U 2.5 total goals: Over +130 / Under -160
  • Both teams will score: Yes +155 / No -205
