- Where: Estadio Centenario, Montevideo, Uruguay
Why bet on Flamengo versus Palmeiras?
The favorite is on fire. Flamengo has won 4 straight with a draw. Even though the draw happened in their last match against Gremio, it’s not a sign Flamengo’s form is disintegrating. Instead, it’s a sign that Flamengo overlooked Gremio somewhat in anticipation of this match against their bigger rivals. On Saturday, Flamengo should make it 5 victories in their last 6.

Why bet on Palmeiras versus Flamengo?
Palmeiras isn’t playing well. But the underdogs could be in line for a form reversal. After 3 straight losses, Palmeiras stepped it up in a decent 2-2 draw versus Atletico-MG. The draw broke a 5-match Atletico-MG winning streak. If Palmeiras can break Atletico’s win streak, there’s a good chance they can turn the tables on their rivals.

Flamengo versus Palmeiras Final Betting Analysis
If you’re a Palmeiras fan, drawing with Atletico-MG is a good sign. The underdog in this match is a decent soccer club.
But the problem Palmeiras has in this isn’t just about turning around their recent form. Flamengo has owned the last few head-to-head matches, winning three and drawing twice.
Flamengo has won the last couple of head-to-head games, including a fantastic 3-1 victory on Sep. 12. Because of Flamengo’s dominance, it’s difficult to even consider backing Palmeiras.
However, there’s a chance Palmeiras tries to extend the game. If the underdog does that, the draw could happen.
Flamengo is the better team, no doubt. Palmeiras understand this, will push for a draw, and hope for either a lucky goal in the extra period or a victory via penalty kicks. Based on the current odds, playing the draw is the way to go.
