Football – Brazil – Serie A Betting Tips

9th placed Cruzeiro will play host to Corinthians as the betting tips continue in Serie A with the hosts looking to return to winning ways following a recent defeat at Atletico PR.

Cruzeiro suffered a 2-0 loss at Atletico PR which resulted in Tuesday night’s hosts losing a little ground in their pursuit of a top six finish, but they’d previously won three of their four matches prior to that loss.

Recent wins over Chapecoense and Parana both at their Estádio Governador Magalhães Pinto, along with a win at America Mineiro had helped Cruzeiro within touching distance of the Copa Libertadores positions. The hosts possess a reasonable record of  9-4-3  21/12 with just one defeat from their last eight on home turf.

Corinthians have produced mixed results in recent weeks which hasn’t helped their cause in trying to lift themselves up into the top half of Serie A as the visitors have registered a win against Bahia at home, but have also drawn with Vitoria and Sao Paulo as well as losing at Santos and Botafogo.

In addition, a poor sequence of results on the road has seen the visitors slump to eight matches on their travels without a win, a run that includes six defeats within an overall poor away record of  2-3-11  15/20.

The hosts do offer some threat in attack though with the likes of midfielder Jadson (4 goals) along with forwards Roger (4 goals) and Romero (6 goals), and whilst they may not take all three points in this encounter, there’s enough incentive for Corinthians to get a result here as they only have a three point lead ahead of the relegation zone.

My betting tips suggest backing Corinthians with the handicap here at good odds.
