Peru and Brazil face off on Monday, July 5 at 7 p.m. ET in the 2021 Copa América semifinals. The hosts are the massive favorite according to DraftKings Sportsbook at -435 while Peru is +1400.

This is a rematch of the 2019 Copa America final, which Brazil won 3-1. The underdogs could be without top scorer Andre Carrillo, who picked up a second yellow card against Paraguay in the quarterfinal to get sent off the pitch. Brazil remains a big favorite to win the whole tournament at -175 and should advance in this match.

Peru vs. Brazil

Peru: +1400 (to advance +550)
Tie: +480
Brazil: -435 (to advance -3000)
Total goals: 1.5 (Over -375, Under +280)

Regular time ML pick: Brazil -435
Team to advance pick: Brazil -3000
Best bet: Brazil over 1.5 goals (-240)

Brazil has been great at putting balls in the net this tournament, scoring 10 goals in four group stage games before hunkering down to protect a 1-0 lead down a man against Chile. Neymar has two goals to lead the team but nine other players have found the back of the net as well. That means its very hard to go with a player-specific bet, but the team is likely to put goals up as a whole.
