  • Santos FC - Botafogo RJ

    When you look at this fixture, it's hard at first to see the appeal in backing anything. However upon closer inspection, there are significant reasons to back this being a draw.

    Santos and Botafogo have met 6 times in the past three years and the record looks like this.... Santos: 1 win, Botafogo: 3 wins, Draw: 2 times. Two of Botafogo's victories have been by a solitary goal, so it's bound to be a tight affair, which would suggest a draw is a good bet.
    Throw in the fact that in the league this season, Santos have drawn 6 games out of 9. No other team has drawn more this campaign to date. The two matches Santos have lost this season have been on their travels, they've not been beaten on home soil.

    I feel the draw at odds of 3.30 is well worth looking at.
