Top 2021 Copa America Matches of the Day

  • When: Thursday, June 17

Venezuela +1 ½ (-112) vs Colombia -1 ½ (-113)

  • When: Thursday, June 17

Colombia has played great since June 3. The Colombian’s dominated Peru 3-0 in a FIFA World Cup Qualifying match. Then on June 8, in another World Cup qualifier, the chalk in this drew 2-2 against favored Argentina. In their first Copa America match, Colombia beat Ecuador 1-0.

Venezuela hasn’t won a match since Nov. 17, 2020, when they upset Chile 2-1 in a FIFA World Cup Qualifying contest. Since then, the Venezuelans have struggled, falling 1-3 to Bolivia on June 3, drawing 0-0 against Uruguay on June 8, and losing 0-3 to Brazil in their first Copa America match on June 13.

Colombia beat Venezuela 3-0 in the last head-to-head. Although the Colombians didn’t show their best offense in the win over Ecuador, Venezuela isn’t as good of a soccer team as the Ecuadorians. Colombia should cover this handicap.

Soccer Pick: Colombia  

Peru +1 ½ (+119) vs Brazil -1 ½ (-153)

  • When: Thursday, June 17

The Brazilians have played better than their third in the world FIFA ranking. The Brazilians dominated Peru 4-2 last Oct. 13. Neymar scored 3 goals. Richarlison knocked in the other goal.

In their first Copa America match, the Brazilians got 3 goals, one each from Neymar, Marquinhos, and Gabriel, when destroying Venezuela 3-0. Brazil won their 4 matches before the Copa America tilt on June 13, beating Venezuela 1-0, Uruguay 2-0, Ecuador 2-0, and Paraguay 2-0.

Peru plays tough, but Brazil is, easily, one of the top three teams in the world. Only France and Belgium can say they’re better than Brazil and it’s difficult to put either one of those teams ahead of the Brazilians because Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson is in Brazil’s net.

Brazil should have no issue covering this handicap. Expect Brazil to put on a show. Neymar and his mates should win this by 2. Don’t be surprised if Brazil wins by 3. 

Soccer Pick: Brazil .
