Brazil to win to nil and Paraguay - Ecuador draw in accumulator of the day

The Punter has spotted some value in today's two games from the Copa America which are being broadcast live on bet365.
Two days into the Copa America and already we've seen a few surprises. Tournament hosts Argentina were held by Bolivia while Colombia only managed a narrow win over Costa Rica.

Normal service should be resumed this evening as holders Brazil take on Venezuela. The five-time World Cup winners are a wafer thin 1.16 to win and with their raft of attacking options should pick their opponents off.

Venezuela punched above their weight in the 2007 Copa America as hosts. They have a poor record against Brazil but did inflict a shock 2-0 defeat on them back in 2008. Don't bet on that happening again which is trading @ 81.0

Elsewhere we have Paraguay taking on Ecuador. Three points is essential for both sides who will be eyeing up second place in the group behind Brazil. Factor in that Ecuador have drawn their last five internationals and that Paraguay's games are regularly going under 2.5 goals a draw looks a likely outcome.

Betting Verdict

The lines on Brazil are too short so for value we fancy them to win to nil @ 1.80 with bet365. Mano Menezes has a formidable backline with the likes of Julio Cesar, Lucio et al. Venezuela will have a job getting past them and you'll get the Selecao @ 1.72 to keep a clean sheet. A draw between Paraguay - Ecuador should be forecast also to top up our double.

Double Tip:
Brazil to win to nil and Paraguay - Ecuador draw @ 6.30

Match Odds: Brazil 1.16, Draw 6.50, Venezuela 17.0 (bet365)
Match Odds: Paraguay 1.80, Draw 3.50, Ecuador 4.50 (bet365)
