Brazil vs Colombia World Cup Odds

Neymar Risks FIFA World Cup Headphones Punishment Ahead of Brazil vs. Colombia

The host Brazil will take on Colombia later today in the quarterfinals of the World Cup. The match will be played in Fortaleza and will certainly have a homefield advantage for Brazil. The World Cup Odds for the match have them listed as a very solid favorite to win.

Draw +285

Brazil had to beat Chile in penalties to get to this point in the tournament. The hosts are expected to run away with the World Cup on their own soil this year, but the world is finding out the sport is getting better and better around the world. All eight teams that won their group stages have made it to the quarterfinals, which should make the games even better.

Colombia has looked like the best team in the tournament at times this World Cup. They have an excellent attacking scheme that allows them good looks at the net but also keeps the other team from getting consistent attempts. Colombia scored nine goals during the group stage, only allowing a goal each to the Ivory Coast and Japan. They also knocked out Uruguay in the Round of 16, picking up a 2-0 victory.

James Rodriguez leads the World Cup in scoring with five goals to this point. Certainly the Brazilian defense will want to shut him down and keep him from having the ball too much in this one. But that is easier said than done. Colombia has been on fire this World Cup and haven't really looked out of control or like they were losing the entire tournament. They probably are riding high with confidence heading into this one, even though they play Brazil.

These two have never met in the World Cup. 

Brazil will count on Neymar to continue to apply pressure up front. Brazil might be a little shaken having to come down to penalty kicks against Chile in a match they were pushed to the edge. The host country's team will have to take it to another level in this game as Colombia believes they can win outright.

But when it comes down to it, either Brazil or Colombia could pick up a win in this match. We like the odds for Colombia, who have just played better than Brazil has. We expect a draw through the first 90 minutes with Colombia winning it in extra stoppage time for the shocker of the tournament.

Free Pick: Colombia 2, Brazil 1 in stoppage time
