Ecuador vs. Brazil

Thursday, January 27, 2022 – 04:00 PM EST at Estadio Rodrigo Paz Delgado

Undefeated Record on the Line

The ten CONMEBOL teams, involved in the Qatar 2022 qualification group, are failing to contend with Brazil's 13-game unbeaten streak. Capturing 35-points from thirteen World Cup qualifying match days, the Selecao have already booked their place in Qatar 2022.

Brazil manager Tite has exited the pressure-cooker of the qualifiers early, as his squad has dominated the opposition in 11 of their 13 WCQ fixtures thus far, drawing the other two. This accomplishment extends Brazil's impressive World Cup qualifying streak, remaining undefeated since 2015, which accumulates to a 30-game consecutive streak without a loss.

With Argentina creeping on their rivals in 2nd position, a six-point gap will need to grow larger if Brazil maintains the top spot. On the other hand, Ecuador is still vying for a trip to Qatar 2022, and a strong 3rd place is a hopeful position to advance from this stage.

A strong home record is what favors Gustavo Alfaro's men on Thursday, who managed to hold Brazil to a 1-1 draw in last season's Copa America group stage. "El Tri" are fearless in front of goal, and although the Brazilians have conceded a mere four goals in the WCQ so far, the home side has scored on four of their previous five meetings with the Selecao.

Final Thoughts | World Cup 2022 Betting Picks

With Argentina creeping on their rivals in 2nd position, a six-point gap will need to grow larger if Brazil wants to maintain the top spot. While many expect Brazil to become content in their already-qualified position, another winless trip away from home will be a challenge Tite can get up for.

Ecuador has more to lose in this encounter, and Brazil is winless from their last three away games. However, with such spectacular attacking talent looking for praise in Neymar's absence, a plus-money betting price available for a Brazil victory is difficult to pass upon.

Score Prediction: Ecuador 1 – Brazil 2

Chile vs. Argentina

Thursday, January 27, 2022 - 07:15 PM EST at Estadio Zorros del Desierto

The Argentines Chase Number One

Matching their rivals South American rivals with an impressive unbeaten record, Argentina will travel to Chile with a hopeful attitude. They can broaden a 27-game undefeated streak that has stemmed from all competitions. Like Brazil, Argentina also booked their place in Qatar 2022 when the two teams played a drawn game last time out.

However, nothing feels better than finishing in 1st place, so we should expect La Albiceleste to continue playing spoils for those attempting to qualify in 3rd and 4th place.

Having lost 2-0 to Ecuador in their last WCQ fixture, Chile missed the chance to climb the top-four. But with such a closely fought race for qualification between 4-9th position teams, La Roja still has four games remaining to make a difference.

The bad news for Chile is that they've failed to win any of their previous five clashes with Argentina, albeit a sense of confidence can be churned from a 1-1 result in the reverse fixture last year.

Final Thoughts | World Cup 2022 Betting Picks

The top sportsbooks are providing bettors with a similar betting predicament to Brazil's matchup; the moneyline odds on Argentina are too tempting to neglect. Of course, the two most deserving teams have already qualified, but this doesn't necessarily mean we can ignore their talents.

Again, another comparison to Brazil is that star Lionel Messi will be absent from the squad like Neymar, giving the expected goal-scoring opportunities and spotlight to shine on the rising talents.

It won't be a high-scoring affair, and I anticipate a closely fought 90 minutes. Argentina to win and under 3.5 goals is holding incredible value for our second soccer pick, and I'll put my faith in Alexis Sanchez, Eduardo Vargas, or Ben Brereton Diaz stealing the show.

Score Prediction: Chile 0 – Argentina 1

CONMEBOL Pick: Argentina to Win + Under 3.5 Goals (+210) [3.10] [1u wager returns 2.10u of profit] at Everygame
