The Colombian squad is the clear favorite in this match-up, but the odds of ¼ for their win aren't worth it. This time we've chosen to back the underdog with a spread in its favor. The Venezuela +1.5 pick has won in 6 of the last 8 meetings between these sides. We prefer backing the visitors because Colombia's 1-0 victory over Ecuador wasn't convincing at all. Juan Cuadrado and company enjoyed only 42% possession and fell 8 corners behind a team that was once again the underdog.
BTTS – No
Venezuela’s attack is on its bad foot at the moment, with only a single goal scored in the squads’ last 5 games. We doubt that the team will tackle Colombia’s defense and we feel confident in backing the BTTS – No bet. Furthermore, this wager would’ve been successful in once again 6 out of their last 8 games.
Under 2.5 Goals
As we already mentioned, Venezuela’s current Goals For the record is bleeding profusely, which is a prerequisite for an Under 2.5 goals bet. The problem here could be Colombia scoring over 2.5 goals on its own, however, this has only happened once in their most recent 6 matches. Head-to-head, 6 of the last 8 meetings between these clubs had under 2.5 goals.
Colombia vs Venezuela: The latest stats and selection of the best odds
Check out the latest statistical insight for this match-up:
On the opposite sides of the group
Colombia and Venezuela took part in the first two games of the current Copa America edition. Those games finished in the opposite ways for both sides, which also places them in the different ends of the table. Venezuela is currently at the bottom, after suffering a 3-0 defeat to outright favorite Brazil, while Colombia is sitting in 2nd place after getting a 1-0 edge over Ecuador.
In the format of the competition, what’s of the greatest importance is not finishing 5th in the groups. Only one of the five teams in the groups won’t continue to the elimination phase, and after only 2 games in this is Venezuela. It’s too early to speak about that, and every underdog can lend an upsetting victory.
