Why Bet on Santos
Santos is the local team and managed to win again last Tuesday after 5 draws and 1 loss. In addition, the Peixe advanced to the next phase of the Copa Sudamericana thanks to the goals scored since they tied in points and goal difference with Unión La Calera (Chile). At the end of the month, they will face Deportivo Táchira (Venezuela) for the round of 16 of this tournament.
In the Brazilian league, things had started well for those led by the Argentinian Fabián Bustos, but in recent times everything got complicated, scoring just 4 points out of a possible 15, thus dropping several positions in the table.
Santos has his faith in his young star, striker Marcos Leonardo, who has 6 goals in this tournament (top scorer of his team), scored the winning goal last date against Juventude, and on June 12th he scored 4 goals in the 7-0 thrashing of the Brazilian Under 20 team against their counterpart from Uruguay. Also, he has 4 goals in his last 4 games for his club, all very significant.
Why Bet on Red Bull Bragantino
The Braga, unlike its rival, came from less to more. They had 9 games without victories, only with 3 draws, but in their last 3 games, they got 7 of 9 possible points, which made them reach the ninth place and pass the bitter pill of elimination from the Copa Libertadores, where they were last and couldn’t even qualify for the Copa Sudamericana.
Mauricio Barbieri’s men are far from the image they left last year when they were finalists in the Copa Sudamericana (losing against Athletico Paranaense).
Final Betting Analysis: Santos vs. Red Bull Bragantino
Santos vs. Red Bull Bragantino is one of the evenest games of this date, with two teams who are tied on points and if they win, they could reach fourth place, until the rest of the teams play. We predict that it will be a tie.
The numbers at MyBookie.ag have Santos as the favorite, as the Moneyline for them shows +129, meanwhile, Red Bull Bragantino has +225.
In the last game at the Vila Belmiro stadium, Santos won 2-0 and has not lost to his rival since 2018 (0-1). There are 8 games undefeated for Peixe in this duel.
In addition, in the last 5 games, they have scored more than 1.5 goals, and only in 1 of the last 8, have they left with less than that number.
Go for a straight draw in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the draw at +220, you will double and gain $120 for a total payout of $220
