The top two in the South American World Cup qualifying group go head-to-head in Barranquilla but all the pressure is on the hosts here.
Brazil have already wrapped up first place on the road to Russia 2018, but Colombia are just two points clear of fifth-placed Argentina in a tight tussle for the other three automatic slots.
With winnable games against Paraguay and Peru still to come, the home team could be content with a draw, making 21/10 for that result worth including in our Colombia vs Brazil betting predictions.
A Look At Colombia’s Betting Odds
Colombia have generally been pretty ruthless when it comes to beating the lesser teams in this section, so Thursday’s goalless draw in Venezuela may have been a slight disappointment.
Juan Cadrado and Radamel Falcao caused problems up front with their pace on the break but an athletic home side did also enjoy a few promising moments in that match.
Meanwhile, when entertaining other top-four contenders, Jose Pekerman’s experienced outfit has not been too hot, drawing with Uruguay and Chile and being beaten 1-0 by Argentina.
Only one point was picked up from away games against those rivals and the Selecao on the road, so a score draw at 7/2 here would definitely be acceptable and appeals for our Colombia vs Brazil betting tips.
A Look At Brazil’s Betting Odds
Since starting out with a loss in Chile, Brazil have breezed through qualifying, with an unbeaten run of 14 games featuring 11 victories.
Friday’s 2-0 defeat of Ecuador was a ninth straight success under head coach Tite in this competition, with Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho putting aside transfer speculation and fitness doubts to score.
Barcelona new boy Paulinho had earlier netted from Chelsea star Willian’s corner while Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus had a far-post header brilliantly saved.
The Samba Stars may now take this opportunity to ease off just a little bit, though, so 5/1 for 1-1 takes the eye from the Colombia vs Brazil odds.
