Uruguay vs. Brazil Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Uruguay will be looking to dump out one of the tournament favorites, Brazil, when the two nations meet in the Copa America quarterfinals on Saturday.

Taking place at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada at 9 PM ET, this is the final last-eight match and it promises to be an enthralling encounter between two teams steeped in history in this event.

Uruguay vs. Brazil betting picks and predictions

Uruguay to win (+180)

Brazil failed to win their group, finishing behind Colombia after earning five points, and they are not firing on all cylinders ahead of this difficult quarterfinal against Uruguay.

A huge blow for head coach Dorival Junior is the absence of Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior, who picked up his second yellow card last time out and is suspended for this fixture.

Endrick, the Real Madrid-bound wonderkid, could be brought into the starting XI and although he is incredibly talented, there will be a lot of pressure on him to produce the goods at such a young age.

Brazil are unbeaten in their last seven games, but four of those have been draws and it just doesn't seems to be clicking for them right now. This could spell bad news for them now coming up against Uruguay.

Marcelo Bielsa's troops won all three of their group assignments, beating Panama 3-1, Bolivia 5-0 and the hosts United States 1-0, and they have looked good at both ends of the pitch.

It is now four wins on the spin for La Celeste, who have also kept four clean sheets from their last five outings and look to have a real chance of winning a record 16th Copa America.

Darwin Nunez to score any time (+175)

There will be no shortage of attacking options on show at Allegiant Stadium and one player that has caught the eye in the US is Uruguay winger Maximiliano Araujo, who is +500 to net any time.

However, he came off injured in the first half against the Stars and Stripes and doubts remain over his fitness.

Therefore, the safer play here is to back his teammate Darwin Nunez to find the back of the net, something he achieved in the wins over Panama and Bolivia and is +175 to do again.

Nunez, who plays his club football for Liverpool, has now scored five goals from his last four international appearances having notched a hattrick against Mexico at the start of June.

The 25-year-old has taken 13 shots in the Copa America and five of those have ended up on target - only Argentina's Lautaro Martinez has had more shots on target.

Raphinha to have Over 0.5 shots on target (-120)

With Brazil missing Vinicius Junior there will be more responsibility on the other attacking players to step up and Barcelona's Raphinha could be the player to do this.

The 27-year-old has looked lively throughout the tournament and he scored the opener last time out against Colombia, curling in a sensational freekick in the 12th minute.

Having been dropped for the second group game, Raphinha rewarded the manager's faith when reinstalled to the starting XI for that Colombia draw and he will be eager to show his worth again.

While he may not end up on the scoresheet again, Raphinha is more than capable of landing one shot on target.
