Brazil vs South Africa: Rio 2016 Football Betting Tips

Rio 2016 Olympics – Football Betting Previews, Odds And Tips

This year’s Olympic Games host nation, Brazil, begin their quest for the only major international football trophy they lack: the Olympic title.

Their first game will take place on the 4th of August against a South African team which has only qualified for the second time for the Olympic Games, after their participation in 2000, in Sydney. Will the hosts get off to a winning start in their quest to obtain a gold medal?

The Brazilians do seem like heavy favorites for this clash. They feature some exceptionally talented youngsters, like Gabriel Jesus (who recently signed with Man. City) or Luan, not to mention the already famous Neymar, Douglas Costa, Felipe Anderson or Rafinha.

This Brazilian team is clearly one of the strongest of this year’s Olympic games, and has the biggest name of the competition among them: Barcelona-based powerhouse Neymar. He will be looking to lead the Brazilian offense all the way to the title.

On the other hand, the South Africans look like a much weaker team. Most of their players are based in the domestic South African league, with only a small couple playing abroad in less-than-exciting leagues or teams.

They are generally viewed as nothing more than a sparring partner in this year’s version of the games and are not expected to produce any kinds of fireworks and surprises, especially against Brazil.

The public will also back up the Brazilians quite a lot, after their rather disappointing exit in the 2014 World Cup.

From a betting perspective, this game has a clear winner: Brazil. They should also be more than able to put a few past the South African goalkeeper with the immense talent that they have available, especially in attack.

Although the odds might not be the best available for a Brazilian win, it’s still a good idea to consider them – and if you are looking for better odds, try a handicap victory (Brazil -2).
