Rio 2016 Olympic Games – Football Betting Previews, Odds And Tips
The first semi-final pins Honduras against host nation Brazil. The Hondurans are the Wales equivalent of this Olympic Tournament. Their direct, counter-attacking football defeated team after team, the most recent of them being South Korea, one of the best teams in this year’s tournament.
Many predict that the luck of the small Carribean nation has just come to an end, but really, who can tell? Brazil also had two 0-0 draws during the group stage, so nothing is off the cards just yet.
On the other hand, just like we said above, the Brazilians started this tournament very, very slow. Two 0-0 draws in the first two games meant that they were just one game away from either qualification or disaster.
Thankfully for them, it was the first, as they beat Denmark 4-0 to advance to the knock-out rounds, where they made overcame Columbia at the end of a tight affair. Neymar also scored his first goal of the tournament, bringing his team a little close to Olympic gold.
Although it is a major tournament semi-final, we find this game to be extremely straightforward: Brazil will win. We can even go ahead and suggest a Brazil -1,5 bet since we believe the host nation to win by at least 2 goals.
The Honduran’s luck will probably end, and now they have to face a world-class team. Not a good team, not a great team, but a world-class one. Brazil’s victory should come easy, especially if they score early on.
