Santos vs Vasco da Gama Predictions: Santos Are the Strongest Team in Brazil at Home

  • Santos have only lost once in 8 matches against Vasco da Gama (Santos to win @ ) — 4/6 Coral
  • There have been under 2.5 goals in 10 of Vasco da Gama’s last 11 fixtures (under 2.5 goals @ ) — 5/7 Unibet

Match Preview

Santos will be extremely frustrated at their inability to win more than twice in their last six Brasileiro Série A games. Table-topping Corinthians have been faltering of late but it looks as though Elano’s men have missed the chance to really turn the screw and put some pressure on the title favourites. The gap between second and first stands at six points with six games to play ahead of our Santos vs Vasco da Gama preview, which probably leaves too much work to do for Elano’s boys.

The home team under examination in today’s free Santos vs Vasco da Gama betting tips are the strongest team at their own stadium in the whole of Série A. The Peixe have lost only two of their sixteen contests at Estádio Urbano Caldeira and if the championship was decided by home form alone, they would be leading the division by four points at this juncture.

Vasco da Gama are enjoying a positive late-season surge and are unbeaten in eight. It’s worth noting, however, that five of those clashes ended level, though the Gigante da Colina are still in with a chance of finishing in the money-spinning top six positions. Zé Ricardo’s squad have taken nineteen points on the road in 2017 so far, compared to twenty-five at home. Vasco’s 1-1 draw at home to Vitória at the weekend was their third successive draw.

Santos vs Vasco da Gama Prediction and Betting Advice

The home side featured in our OddsDigger Santos vs Vasco da Gama bets have been incredibly consistent for a while now all things considered. Their 2-1 to Sao Paulo a fortnight ago was their only loss in eight. They have lost just three of their last twenty-seven matches all told, which is an exceptional sequence that has had a large influence over the bookmaker’s Brasileiro Série A football betting odds.

Elano’s squad have a great recent record against their adversaries too – they have only tasted defeat once in eight meetings with the club from Rio de Janeiro. At the Estádio Urbano Caldeira, they have won seven of their last eight clashes with Vasco. We have to go back to 2006 to find the last away win in this fixture. The Peixe’s formidable home form will be key once again on Wednesday, which is why we are backing them to win. Coral have the best odds around for our outright match prediction, so we recommend you use them.

Goal scoring is not something you would readily associate with the away side in today’s Santos vs Vasco da Gama predictions. Ze Ricardo’s attack has been toothless all season, in fact, only the current bottom three in Série A have scored fewer goals than our featured team who sit in eighth. In ten of their most recent eleven fixtures, under 2.5 goals have been scored. Vasco fans must be some of the most excitement deprived supporters in Brazilian football.

The home attack hasn’t functioned much better, they are the lowest scorers in the current top seven of Brazil’s top flight. Six of their last nine outings have also ended with under 2.5 goals struck home. It’s strange to see Elano’s team be such a poor reflection of their coach, who was a free-scoring midfielder in his heyday. When our dissected clubs last took to the field to face off in July, the game ended level after a dour 0-0 draw. If you fancy backing the pick in the final part of today’s free Brazilian football tips, you can do so using the amazing odds we found at Unibet. They are unbeatable in terms of value.
