South American Football Betting Tips & Predictions

South American football betting tips

We in Britain may have invented football, but even we can't match the unbridled passion of South American football fans for the beautiful game. Football is like a religion in Brazil, and there are plenty of other footballing hot beds in the region – in Argentina, Uruguay and Chile to name but three. 

Betting on South American football is ideal for European football fans as seasons in South America tend to run from April or May to November or December, meaning there are games to wager upon during the close seasons of the European leagues.

South American football predictions

It's our aim to bring our site users the very best in football predictions for all global football leagues including the biggest leagues in South America. As well as 'simple '1X2' predictions we make sure that we expand our wagering repertoire to include the best BTTS (both team to score) yes/no bets, over/under 2.5 goals predictions, correct score tips and much more. 

We also keep an eye on players whom have a knack of hitting the back of the net (leading to predictable cries of 'GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!' from over-exuberant commentators) so we can bring you the best first/anytime goal scorer tips. We even at times go as far as bringing you predictions for the number of corners and cards awarded.

What Leagues are in South America?

The two major hotbeds of football in South America are Brazil and Argentina. In Brazil there are two league systems – state and national – and most major clubs compete in both. The national season begins in May and ends in December. State competitions have start and end times depending on the state, but usually run from April to October. 

In Argentina there is one main league – the Primera Division. This is currently a twenty-eight team league where – somewhat uniquely – teams only play each other once each season. 

There are also league systems in many of the other leading football-playing countries in South America, namely Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.

Who are the best clubs in South America?

Probably the most famous club in South America is Santos, primarily because Pele – considered by many to be the greatest footballer of all time – played for them between 1956 and 1974. They are not the most successful Brazilian football team though – that honour belongs to Palmeiras who have won the Brazilian league the most times. Brazilian football has plenty of very strong teams; as well as Santos and Palmeiras there are Corinthians, Sao Paulo, Flamengo, Cruzeiro, Vasco and Fleuminese. 

Other leading football clubs in South America include Independiente, Boca Juniors and Estudiantes from Argentina, Penarol and Nacional from Uruguay and Club Olimpia from Paraguay.
