Brazil Currently 1.11 To Defeat Haiti on Wednesday

Published on June 8th, 2016 2:30 am EST
Both Brazil and Haiti will be looking to get their first wins of the 2016 Copa America when they square off on Wednesday evening.

Brazil got off to a quiet start in the tournament, as they played Ecuador to a 0-0 draw on June 4th in their first game of the tournament.

Haiti, on the other hand, lost their first match of the tournament 1-0 to Peru on June 4th.

Given that Brazil is one of the most powerful football nations in the world, they are obviously the clear favourites to win on Wednesday evening. Here are the current betting odds:

Brazil, 1.11
Draw, 8.50
Haiti, 23.00

Here are the implied odds of each team winning:

Brazil, 90.09%
Draw, 11.76%
Haiti, 4.35%

As you can see, Haiti is being given essentially no shot of winning.

While Neymar, Jr. will not be playing on Wednesday night, the Brazilian team enjoys an embarrassment of riches. A team that includes the likes of Hulk, Jonas Goncalves and Gabriel Barbosa will always be a handful to deal with on any given evening.

For Haiti, their squad will be pinning their hopes on Duckens Nazon, Kervens Belfort and Jean-Eudes Maurice to possibly pull off the shocking victory. Haiti's only chance seems to be to play a strong defensive game and hope that they can capitalize on an errant Brazilian mistake, while Brazil will be looking to knock their opponents on their backs early on in the contest.


According to the bookmakers, the likeliest outcome of Wednesday's game is a 3-0 victory for Brazil, which is currently being traded at 5.50 on William Hill.
