Football – Brazil – Serie A Betting Tips

With the impending international fixtures coming in a few days time, this temporary lull in activity gives us a chance to focus on the Brazilian top flight with my next pick featuring Vasco da Gama taking on Atletico PR as the betting tips continue.

Relegation threatened Vasco da Gama return to their Estádio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama where they’ll be hoping to bounce back from their recent 2-1 defeat away at Gremio, and as most of their limited success has been achieved on home turf, the hosts will be looking for at least a point here.

Eight of Vasco’s nine league wins have been recorded at home within an overall record of  8-4-4  26/22 and they’ve lost just once in their last seven matches. However, along with Vitoria, they’ve also shipped 22 goals so far which is the highest at home in Serie A to date and therefore giveds the visitors a chance here.

Atletico PR sit in 7th place and just one point behind Atletico Mineiro who occupy the last Copa Libertadores qualifier spot ahead of their trip to face bottom half outfit, Vasco da Gama on Wednesday night.

The visitors are in reasonable form themselves as they’ve lost just once in their last six matches overall, which was a 2-1 loss away at second placed Internacional, but recent wins against America Mineiro, Sport Recife, Botafogo and Cruzeiro have kept them in the hunt for a top six finish in Serie A.

However, before we get too carried away, Atletico PR remain the only team in the Brazilian top flight yet to register a win on the road this season as they possess a fairly average looking record of  0-6-10  5/20.

In fact, it’s now 18 away matches without a win, a run that includes 6 draws and 12 defeats; but with striker Felipe (12 goals) assisted by midfielder Veiga (7 goals) in their ranks along with Vasco’s uncertain defence, my betting tips suggest backing the visitors to grab at least a point here.

Pick: Atletico PR AH+0.5 @ 1.52 bet365 (odds taken at 00:38 GMT, 13 Nov 2018)
