We are jumping into the halfway point of the Brasileirão 2023 Season. We are looking at how things have progressed so far in the current season and we can’t be more excited.
There is a 4 team draw on the 2nd spot of the scoreboard, and then we have the next 7 teams fighting to get higher. In this context, things have been pretty competitive for all of them.
Flamengo is currently in the aforementioned draw for the second spot, and they need to pick up the pace to not be left behind in one of these few weeks. Meanwhile, São Paulo is on the 9th spot on the scoreboard and has been having issues finding their pace, as they have only gotten 1 point in the last 3 matches.
Sunday, August 13th at 4:30 pm ET in the Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro
São Paulo +380
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Flamengo?
Flamengo is coming into this match trying to bounce back into the winning column. They got a 3-0 loss from the hands of a rising Cuiaba.
They definitely need to pick up the pace in this match as not only have they come from a loss, but they also have been caught up by 2 more teams and desperately need to take a victory and leap to the front of these 4 teams 2nd place race.
This is a great opportunity to take the victory, as they are also hosting their opponents in Maracanã with their crowd.
Why Bet on São Paulo?
São Paulo is going through a downward slope as of late, coming in with no victories in their last 3 matches, 2 of them being losses, including their most recent outing with Atletico Mineiro, who handed them a 2-0 loss.
They were, actually, the first victim of Cuibá current stage of form. Since then, the bad results have not stopped and were accompanied by a loss against San Lorenzo for the Sudamericana. Today they’ll face the second leg of that match, so their animus will depend greatly on the result.
The Paulistas have been having a horrible time with Flamengo as of late, as they have not managed to take a victory in this clash since February 2021.
Betting Analysis: Flamengo vs. São Paulo
Things are not looking as great for São Paulo, who is currently in the middle of the scoreboard with such a big “fight” going on between all the teams, as they will likely have issues trying to get through Flamengo.
The Fla needs to get their things together, especially after their most recent loss, but they seem to look in a way better shape than their current opponents, and thanks to the fact that they will be hosting, we expect them to get a 1-0 victory this Sunday.
Go for a Flamengo victory at -130. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $76 for a total payout of $176.
