Brazil Head The Betting To Be Top South American Nation At The World Cup

South America has produced nine World Cup winning teams in the past but none since 2002 and they will be looking to end that drought in Russia this summer. Brazil appear to be the stand-out hope and they are the bookmakers favourites' in the Top South American Team Betting Odds...

Brazil Favourites In The Latest 'Top South American Nation' Betting

Brazil, the five-time champions, were hugely impressive in the CONMEBOL section of qualifying as they topped the table with ease and they look to have a very favourable draw in Russia, where they have been placed in Group E with Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.

Neymar and co. should top that group with ease and they would then meet the runner-up from Group F in the first knockout stage, which is likely to be one of Mexico, Sweden or South Korea - assuming Germany win that group.

Everything looks set for Brazil to enhance a fine record that has seen them reach at least the quarter-finals in 15 of their past 18 World Cup appearances, including the last six in a row (Won-2nd-Won-QF-QF-4th). Brazil are 6/5 to be top South American team and it is difficult to see any of the other CONMEBOL sides outdoing them.

Top South American Team Odds

Argentina are 11/5 to be the best South American team with Betfair but the 1978 and 1986 winners will be relying on the brilliant Lionel Messi to drag them through games. All is not well with Jorge Sampaoli's side after they laboured through qualifying, scoring a paltry 19 goals in 18 games, before succumbing to a humiliating 6-1 defeat to Spain in a recent international friendly.

The weight of expectation weighs heavily on a team that has reached the quarter-finals or better in seven of their past nine World Cup appearances, albeit their run to the final in 2014 was their first time beyond the last-eight since 1990.

Furthermore, their draw is far from straightforward as they are in a tricky Group D with Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria, and they would then face one of France, Australia, Peru or Denmark from Group C in the last-sixteen...

Uruguay are 8/1 to be top South American team with Boylesports as they were quietly impressive during qualifying, finishing runners up in the CONMBEOL section and Edinson Cavani ended as top scorer with 10 goals.

Cavani and Luiz Suarez provide genuine quality in attack and they can make the most of an easy group that includes Saudi Arabia, Russia and Egypt. The two-time World Cup winners (1930 and 1950) should not be underestimated and they were the best performing South American nation as recently as 2010 when they finished 4th.

Meanwhile, Colombia (9/1) did reach the quarter-finals in 2014 and will fancy their chances of coming out on top - ahead of Senegal, Poland and Japan - in Group H. Things aren't quite so clear cut for Peru (50/1) as they gear up for their first finals appearance since 1982 and they are in Group C with France, Australia and Denmark.
