Argentina vs Brazil: who will win the bronze medals?
On August 7, Argentina and Brazil square off in the game for the Olympic bronze. Which team has a better chance of winning the medals? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Argentina is having a good tournament. After losing two matches at the start of the competition (to Russia in four sets and to Brazil in five), the South American team got on a winning streak of four games. In the final round of the group stage, the Argentines defeated the USA (25:21, 25:23, 25:23), and in the quarterfinals, Argentina beat the Italians in a tough five-set match. But in the semifinals, they already did not have enough strength, which resulted in a defeat from France in three straight sets.
Brazilcan hardly be satisfied with their result at the Olympic tournament because they clearly strived to get into the final. The Brazilians lost only to one team - Russia, first at the group stage and then in the semifinals. They won the first set in the semifinal, but in end lost with a score of 1: 3 (18:25, 25:21, 26:24, 25:23).
This bet played in four out of the last five matches of Brazil.
Over 44 points have been scored in the first set in four of Argentina's last five matches.
We believe that in this match the Argentines will overcome their tiredness and will fight for the bronze with a lot of enthusiasm. Brazil is a difficult opponent, but the Argentines look very good at this tournament. We expect Argentina to win at least one set, and for that reason suggest playing the total over.
Our prediction - total over 3.5 sets
Argentina have a good chance to win a set in this match. The Argentines serve very well and make few mistakes in their attacks. Consider playing a positive handicap to the underdog.
Second wager - Asian handicap (+2.5) sets to Argentina
