Corinthians vs. Botafogo Preview and Free Pick

Last Updated on May 29, 2024 2:51 pm by Erwin Noguera

It’s been two weeks since the Brasileirão had to take a break due to the floods. Some teams kept watching action in the Copa Libertadores and Sudamericana, so we have some margin to see their form. The league schedule suffered a complete overhaul, so we must wait and see how the authorities will organize the rest of the season, dealing with a busy summer featuring the Copa América and Paris Olympics.

Now then, we focus on Corinthians and Botafogo, two teams at different ends of the table, but that are, nevertheless, big institutions with plenty of tradition in Brazil.

When and Where?

Saturday, June 1, 3:00 pm ET at the Neo Química Arena

Why Bet on Corinthians?

The hosts need to regain confidence following the break, as their one win, two draws, and three losses run have them in the 16th spot, tied in points with Fluminense in the relegation zone.

Even though Corinthians have been doing poorly on the Série A, they have been great on the Copa Sudamericana and Copa Do Brazil, in which they have racked up four straight victories.

The team seems to be looking pretty good outside of their league efforts, so maybe the break came at the right moment for them to regroup and be prepared to take the season by storm.

They should look a lot different once they get to the field this Saturday, especially as they host the match in front of their home crowd. They have gotten all their points at home.

Why Bet on Botafogo?

The visitors come with three wins, one draw, and two losses, being the team that scored the most goals to this point. However, they have to fix their defense, as they are tied for the most goals taken in the top 12. Let’s remember that their shacky defense was greatly responsible for their dramatic downfall from first place last season, so this start is not a good omen.

The overall season for the team has been positive. They struggled in the Copa Libertadores in their first participation in many years, but still managed to qualify as second in their group. Meanwhile, they were at the top of the Série A for a short while, but their current form, with a draw and a loss in the last two games, took them down.

Whatever the case, they come with three wins and a draw from their latest clashes in Copa Libertadores and the Copa do Brasil, so the team has achieved some consistency outside the Brasileirão.

They are entering the field as the visitors, but if we solely focus on the results from both teams, the Fogao should have it in the bag.

Betting Analysis: Corinthians vs. Botafogo

In the last 38 games between the two in all competitions, there is great parity, with the Coringao achieving 13 wins against 14 for the Fogao. There have been 11 draws in the meantime.

Last season for the Brasileirão, it was one victory for each one.

We expect this match to be a lot more contested than it may look on paper, as Corinthians has been picking up their performances regarding the clashes outside of their base season.

However, Botafogo has not been doing badly either, so we expect them to be able to not only keep Corinthians around the bottom of the board but also to fight for the lead again. We’ll go for a 1-3.

Go for a win for the visitors at 3.705. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $270.5 for a total payout of $370.5.
