Brazil vs Chile Betting Odds
Brazil won Group A, but they did not look great doing so and they are big betting favorites facing Chile in the round of 16.
It was a minor surprise that Chile got out of their group, which included the 2010 World Cup finalists in Spain, who they beat in group play, and Holland, who they lost to.
Bovada has Brazil as the big World Cup betting favorite in the match posted at -161 with Chile at +503 and a draw line of +323.
Brazil finished off group play with their best match beating Cameroon 4-1 and narrowly edging out Mexico on goal differential to win the group.
Chile’s defense only conceded three goals in group play, including keeping a clean sheet against defending champion Spain, but they gave up two goals in their last group match facing Holland.
It is pretty obvious the Chilean defense must key on Neymar, who has four goals in three matches for Brazil.
Alexis Sánchez leads the Chile offense they have scored five goals in their three group matches. While they were shut out facing Holland they had their chances hitting a few posts and finding open spaces. They will have to do the later facing Dani Alves and a Brazil defense that only conceded two goals in group play.
Chile has not had much success against Brazil, as in 15 matches facing them they only have one win, 13 losses, and a draw.
The monster in Brazil may have woken up in the four-goal performance against Cameroon in their last group match. Chile will keep it close and can execute the upset here with a well-planned game. We see a 1-1 draw going into extra time with Chile winning and advancing to the quarterfinals, much to the chagrin of Brazil's fans.
