Conmebol World Cup qualifying continues with matchday 10 and a slew of games that will shape up the standings as five teams look to keep their World Cup positions in South America. After the fiasco that was the Brazil - Argentina match, the Argentines play host to Bolivia who despite a 2-4 loss to Uruguay managed to score two goals and are a tricky opponent. Brazil plays host to Peru who are in desperate need of three points in order to stay alive in qualifying.
Uruguay saw a resurgence in their trashing of Bolivia and play one of the best games of the day against Ecuador in a battle for third place. Colombia will host Chile who need something from Colombia in order to stay alive in qualifying as well.
DraftKings have put out their odds and we have some interesting picks for you to consider in this very important matchday in Conmebol World Cup qualifying. Here are our picks for the day.
Uruguay - Ecuador
Uruguay (-110) comes into this match having snapped a four-game winless streak, while La Celeste kept earning draws, they were relieved to earn three points against Bolivia. Ecuador (+340) is riding high after a 4-point streak which saw them beat Paraguay and draw Chile at home. This game will come down to inches but look for Uruguay to sneak this one out.
Paraguay - Venezuela
Paraguay (-160) has no more excuses; the talented but disappointing Paraguay side need to win against a Venezuela (+500) team that is bottom of the standings. If Paraguay don’t get something from this match Eduardo Berizzo will have to rethink a lot of his strategy. It’s Paraguay’s night!
Colombia - Chile
Colombia (-130) is slowly getting things together after a poor start to qualifying, firmly in fifth place the Colombians need 3 points to possibly jump the standings, while Chile (+400) who have largely disappointed need a win to get into the fight. Look for Colombia to win this one, they are in better form.
Argentina - Bolivia
Argentina (-1100) not only has fresh legs but are playing at home against a Bolivian (+2200) side that has played better this time out in qualification but continue to lose to their opponents. Look for Argentina to light up the scoreboard against Bolivia.
Brazil - Peru
Fresh legs might be a factor in a match that is desperation mode for Peru (+1000) who need something from this game. Brazil (-330) is a team with boatloads of talent and rested and at home look for Tite’s men to continue undefeated in qualifying.
