Football Bet of the Day: Back a blowout in Brazil

Santos and Cruzeiro take centre stage in Brazil tonight

Tobias Gourlay reckons the Fish and the Fox could put on a show in Brazilian Serie A tonight

  • Faves Santos have conceded 13 in 7 at home

  • Cruzeiro have netted in 7/10 on the road

  • Back +2.5 Goals


Santos v Cruzeiro
Thursday 23:00

A shock in Brazil last night as Athletic-PR beat 10-man Flamengo 3-0.

We're looking to bounce back in... Brazil. One of tonight's Serie A matches brings 13th-placed Cruzeiro to 17th-placed Santos. We like the big price on Over 2.5 Goals.

Both teams have scored in five straight at Vila Belmiro. The Fish are favourites for this one, despite being seven games without a clean sheet there, conceding 13 times. Four of the last five have hit Over 2.5 Goals.

Cruzeiro won the reverse fixture 2-1 on their home patch. On the road this term, the Fox have produced Over 2.5 Goals in 6/10. Visiting opponents who are outside the top three, they have scored at least once in 7/8. We'll back them to help deliver a high scorer tonight at a plump price.

Back Over 2.5 Goals in Santos v Cruzeiro @ 2.77/4
