Why South Korea is a good play versus Brazil

The South Koreans stepped it up when they had to. Most believed Uruguay, especially after the Uruguayans went up 2-0 over Ghana, were going to be the second team from Group H to qualify. 

Instead, South Korea pulled off one of the most impressive and meaningful upsets in World Cup history, beating heavily favored Portugal 2-1 to stamp their ticket to the Round of 16. The Portuguese outplayed Korea for most of the match, controlling possession 62% of the time to South Korea’s 38%.

But the dogs matched Portugal in shots, 13, and shots on goal, 6. If South Korea plays against Brazil the same way they did versus Portugal, who knows?

Why Brazil is a good play versus South Korea

Brazil didn’t have to beat Cameroon but losing 1-0 to a team they should have beaten by 3 goals had to sting. However, Tite’s squad did what they had to do to win their group.

Also, to be fair, Brazil knows the main goal is to win the World Cup. After completing the first task, winning Group G, Brazil has already moved on to the second task, dominating South Korea and moving to the quarterfinals.

South Korea laid it all on the line to get past Portugal. Brazil played a calm easy as it goes match against Cameroon. They don’t care that they lost. The Brazilians should show up on the pitch with more stamina than the Koreans, and that could lead to a blowout victory.

Final Betting Analysis: South Korea vs Brazil 

The most important piece of news in South Korea versus Brazil is whether Neymar plays. If Brazil’s top striker returns to the pitch, the Brazilians will get a huge boost that could lead to a big victory.

Even without Neymar, Brazil wins this match. South Korea is a quality squad. You don’t qualify for the Round of 16 unless you have some talent.

But the Koreans take on the Brazilians after an incredibly hard fought and emotional match. It’s difficult seeing South Korea not bouncing in this. Brazil wins for sure. The question is whether the odds are worth backing Brazil to win by multiple goals.

Once oddsmakers set a spread line, make your bet with value in mind.
