Football betting enthusiasts looking to use bwin’s free £25 bet for new customers on the Copa America will find that there is still plenty to play for in Group B.
Venezuela top the group with four points, while Paraguay and Brazil occupy second and third with two points each with Ecuador holding the group up on one point.
As such, qualification is very much up for grabs as anyone of three teams could top the group, while wins for Ecuador and Venezuela would see Brazil and Paraguay dumped out of the competition at the first stage.
Brazil find themselves in such a predicament after lacklustre performances in their first two games saw them labour to a 0-0 draw with Venezuela and held 2-2 by Paraguay.
However, despite this form, the Samba Boys are heavily tipped to come to life against an Ecuador side that has not won in five matches.
bwin prices the Canarinho at 1/4 to get the win they need to progress, while a third successive draw for Mano Menzes’ men is priced at 17/4.
Fans looking to back an outside bet could be tempted on the 10/1 odds currently being offered on Brazil to suffer a humiliating defeat at the hands of La Tri.
Ecuador boss Reinaldo Rueda has brought a strong squad to Argentina and despite seeing his team billed as underdogs, he will be buoyed by Brazil’s stuttering start and is likely to set his players up with an attack-minded formation.
This could tempt a number of fans to back one of Ecuador’s seasoned campaigners to shock the Brazil fans by snatching an early goal.
Manchester United’s rejuvenated winger Antonio Valencia is seen as an outside bet to score first and can be backed at 18/1, while Edison Mendez and Christian Benitez are seen as a more likely source of goals and are priced at 14/1 and 10/1 respectively to break the deadlock.
However, while Brazil have yet to live up to their pre-tournament hype, Menezes is able to call upon some of the biggest names in world football to see his side through.
Should Brazil perform to their maximum potential, it is highly likely that Robinho, Neymar or Alexandre Pato will find themselves on the score sheet.
Pato is among the favourites to get the game up and running, with bwin pricing the AC Milan forward at 7/2 to score the games first goal, while teammate Robinho offers odds of 5/1 and Santos’ sought-after attacker is seen as a 4/1 bet.
