Where to Bet on Brazilian Football
The Brazilian national football team may be one of the best known around the world, but the domestic soccer scene in Brazil is nowhere near as well known globally. While the country’s top stars may start out playing at home, eventually most are bought by foreign teams around the world and play out their careers abroad.
That said, there remains a burgeoning Brazilian football scene in the country despite the regular exodus of talent and the 20 team Serie A of the Campeonato Brasileiro remains fiercely contested to this very day.
However, the competition only runs from May to December each year, but the good news is that for the period from January through to April, teams compete domestically in a number of smaller State Championships.
What this means is that whether it is teams battling for State Championship titles, or the Serie A title, there’s always plenty of Brazilian domestic soccer to bet on across the year.
So the question is, which bookmakers tend to offer some of the best options when it comes to Brazilian football betting? After checking bettingwebsites.org and other top bookmaker review portals we couldn’t find any info specifically for Brazil so we’ve outlined the best options below:
The one criticism I have of Coral’s Brazil soccer betting is that it is unnecessarily difficult to navigate to, however once you find it through the World A-Z in the football menu, then you are in for a treat. The site offers a good range of bets from the State Championship season and of course, the Serie A season later in the year.
However, where Coral really scores highly is in the number of different betting markets available on each game which is consistently higher than any other provider. In some cases, Coral offer 63 or even over 120 different betting markets on a game, whereas some other companies only offered one, two or five or six markets on these games.
This combined with generally strong odds when compared to rivals makes Coral the top choice for Brazilian football betting.
2. Bet365 Sport
Bet365 Sport has always been a popular site for football betting and it offers an extensive range of Brazilian football betting on both Serie A and a number of different State Championships earlier on in the year. You can find the full list of Brazilian soccer matches in the soccer menu under “The Americas” tab.
Furthermore, there are a number of different bets available on these games, ranging from the Full Time Result, through to Over/Under 2.5 Goals bets, HT/FT bets, Asian Handicap betting, Goal line bets, HT/FT Correct Score bets and Draw No Bet markets.
2. BetVictor Sport
BetVictor offer extensive football betting markets on Brazilian soccer especially during the Serie A season from May to December, although the site does not offer quite as many options as other sites during the State Championship part of the season.
There is an excellent selection of bets available for each game including Correct Score bets, Both Teams to Score bets and the increasingly popular To Win and Both Teams to Score market.
Betfred offer an excellent service for Brazilian sports betting. Located in the football section under the Rest of the World (ROTW) leagues, the Brazil section offers extensive betting throughout the year on both different types of competition.
While the number of matches offered is extensive throughout the year, BetFred doesn’t quite offer as broad a number of betting markets on each of the games as any of the top sites listed above, but if you generally bet on the more popular markets for Brazilian soccer, Betfred remains a strong choice.
5. William Hill
William Hill offer a more comprehensive service when the Serie A competition kicks into life around May, but for the State Championship part of the season, usually the bets on offer come from a couple of the top state games, plus you can only bet on the outcome of the match and not any other betting markets.
