Coritiba are providing one of the most compelling storylines in Brasileiro Série A at the moment. The Coxa looked doomed to be relegated this season, but they have turned their fortunes around with a late rally that has seen them jump to 15th spot, a full two places clear of the drop zone. Another victory this weekend could see them leap another two places up the standings depending on other results.

In the weeks leading up to our OddsDigger Coritiba vs Ponte Preta preview, the home team have pulled together a five-match unbeaten run, winning three and drawing the other two of their positive set of results. Given that they had failed to win any of their nine league games before that, their turnaround almost defies belief. Marcelo Oliveira’s squad have been scoring their way out of trouble, finding the net ten times in their last three outings alone.
Unfortunately for the away team in today’s Coritiba vs Ponte Preta betting tips, there seems to be no miracle escape on the cards for Coach Eduardo Baptista. Ponte Preta look like they could be exiting Série A with a whimper – the Macca have only won once in their last seven, though that solitary victory came at the expense of champions-elect Corinthians in an acca-busting 1-0 scoreline in the last week of October. Scanning the odds on today’s Brasileiro Série A football, we see that the bookies give the away side little chance of eking out three points to help their cause this weekend.
As we pointed out earlier, the home team under scrutiny in today’s free collection of Coritiba vs Ponte Preta bets have been full of goals of late. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 100% of the Coxa’s last three fixtures. In fact, there were fifteen goals registered in that trio of contests, that’s an average of five goals per ninety minutes played. Looking at the history books, we can uncover further statistical evidence for our prediction.
In four of the last five meetings between the pair, we have seen scores of 4-0, 2-0, 3-1, 3-0, and 2-1. That means that on four out of five occasions they have played, the target of 2.5 goals has been passed. Both defences have conceded exactly forty-three goals each in the 2017 Série A season. There should be plenty of scope for more goals on Sunday. Having considered what’s available at their rivals, Betfred’s odds came out on top in terms of value for our initial pick.
We have selected a home win in the second of this week’s Coritiba vs Ponte Preta predictions for several reasons. The away team have actually beaten the Coxa in four of their last five games against them, though the most salient thing to pick out from that sequence is that all four of their wins came at home, the Estádio Moisés Lucarelli. When the teams meet at the Couto Pereira, the story is entirely different.
Coritiba are unbeaten there in eleven matches against their visitors this weekend – interestingly, the last away win in this fixture came just after the millennium in 2001. Moreover, The Macca’s performances on their travels this season are extremely meaningful. They have taken all three points just once in sixteen games outside Campinas, making them the worst performing squad on the road in Brazil’s top division by some distance. Bet-at-home have you covered with the best odds around for the last of our Brazilian football bets for today.
