Why bet on Peru versus Brazil?
Sure, Brazil blasted Peru in each squads’ first Copa match. But since then, the Peruvians have played like one of the better teams in South America. The upset win over Colombia impressed big time. Outlasting Paraguay, who was a legit underdog to win the Copa, was huge. Peru allowed 3 goals, but they scored 3 as well. This Peruvian squad is much different than the one Brazil played against a few weeks ago.

Why bet on Brazil versus Peru?
Brazil has zero knocks. We know the names. Silva, Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Fred, Firmino, all play for top club teams. Ederson is Manchester City’s goalie. Brazil has a single draw during the Copa, against Ecuador in their final group play match. The Brazilians should have no trouble getting past a team they’ve already beaten by 4 goals in this tournament.

Final Betting Analysis: Peru vs Brazil
Peru won’t upset Brazil on the moneyline. Even though Peru has shown grittiness that few times show in any international tournament, the Peruvians don’t have the players that Brazil has.
But Brazil hasn’t reproduced the 4-goal victory over Peru. In their last, Chile hung with Brazil in a contest that could have gone either way. Again, that doesn’t mean Brazil falls to Peru, but it does mean the underdog in this has a much better shot of forcing a draw or grabbing a handicap win than the odds indicate.
Peru scored 3 goals against Paraguay. They know that if they open the attack against Brazil, they’re likely to lose by close to 4 again. Instead of opening the attack, Peru will play a more conservative match and hope to beat Brazil via penalty kicks.
That should lead to a Brazil victory, but it won’t be by more than a goal. We’re taking the goal and a half on the Peruvians.
