CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying Matches to Bet On This Week
FIFA World Cup Qualifiers – CONMENBOL
- When: Tuesday, June 8
Tuesday, June 8th Matches
- Peru / Ecuador
Based on recent form, Ecuador has nothing to worry about. The Ecuadorians slammed the Colombians 6-1 on Nov. 17 last year. Then in a March 29 friendly against Bolivia, Ecuador beat their rivals 2-1. The 0-2 loss to Brazil on June 4 should worry nobody. Peru is on a 4-match losing streak. The underdog lost all 4 matches by at least 2 goals. Consider backing Ecuador on the handicap.
Soccer Pick: Ecuador
- Uruguay / Venezuela
Venezuela isn’t in a great form. They’ve got a single victory in their last 5. The good news? The win happened against strong CONMENBOL squad Chile. But that win happened back on Nov. 17. In their last match, on June 3 against Bolivia, Venezuela fell 3-1. Uruguay drew 0-0 with Paraguay on June 3. No doubt, the Uruguayans should win this. Star players like Luis Suarez should have a field day against Venezuela’s defense. Here’s another where laying goals looks like the best bet.
Soccer Pick: Uruguay
- Argentina / Colombia
Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, and Sergio Aguero lead Argentina onto the pitch versus Colombia. The Colombians beat Peru 3-0 in their last WC qualifier. Before the victory, though, Columbia had struggled. Uruguay dumped Colombia 3-0 on Nov. 13, 2020. Then three days later on Nov. 16 came the ridiculous 1-6 loss to Ecuador. Argentina rolls.
Soccer Pick: Argentina
- Brazil / Paraguay
Does Paraguay have any shot against Brazil? To win, no. Brazil has won their last 3 World Cup qualifying matches by a combined 5-0. On Nov. 13 last year, the Brazilians beat the Venezuelans 1-0. Brazil beat Uruguay 2-0 on Nov. 17. Then on June 4 last week, Neymar and his mates bested Ecuador 2-0. But even though Brazil looks strong, Paraguay could frustrate the world’s third-ranked soccer team. Paraguay has a victory and 4 draws in their last 5 matches. The win happened against Venezuela. Paraguay may not win. They could force a draw.
Soccer Pick: Draw
- Bolivia / Chile
Although Bolivia beat Venezuela 3-1 on June 3, it will be tough for them to score a goal against Chile. The Chileans are one of the better teams in South America. Chile drew 0-0 with Argentina in their June 3 match. Chile beat Bolivia 2-1 in an international friendly on May 26. Chile is the play.
Soccer Pick: Chile
