Brazil is still undefeated in qualification and Argentina are a firm second place. Places 3-6 is up for grabs and when it’s all said and done the table may look dramatically different. Here are the best picks for matchday 11 of CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.
Uruguay - Colombia
In one of the marquee matches of matchday 11 Uruguay (+110) comes into their match against Colombia (+295) riding on a high after their defeat of Ecuador, while Colombia scored a huge win against Chile. Look for Uruguay to play a tight game and a counter attacking style against Colombia who could upset Uruguay in El Gran Parque Central. A draw is not out of the question at +220.
Paraguay - Argentina
It’s a tough match for Paraguay (+475) as they will face Argentina (-145) at home but look for it to be an uphill battle for Paraguay. Argentina is riding high and with their firepower up top and their morale at an all-time high, Argentina should take this one.
Venezuela - Brazil
After the mess that was the Brazil- Argentina match, Brazil (-290) will look to get back to winning ways, they are still undefeated, and will face lowly Venezuela (+850), who even at home should not be a difficult challenge for Brazil.
Ecuador - Bolivia
Bolivia (+1700) may be a tough opponent but they also need to start winning to climb the standings. Ecuador (-700) who was a handful for Uruguay and only lost that match late in the game will look to bounce back with 3 must win points. El Tricolor looks to be a much more polished side and will most likely take this match.
Peru - Chile
This is one of the biggest matches of the day in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying, both Peru (+160) and Chile (+190) cannot afford to lose any more points, one of these teams needs to get a win and while Chile is away from home Peru looks like the more dangerous side. Look for Peru to finally get three points.
