Brazil attempt to halt a three-game winless streak when they host defending champion Argentina in a 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifying matchup on Tuesday. Brazil won their first two qualifiers but have since recorded a draw and two losses, including a 2-1 setback against Colombia last Thursday. Argentina, who won their third World Cup title in December 2022, were defeated 2-0 by Uruguay last week after winning their first four qualifying matches.
Kickoff at Estadio do Maracana in Rio de Janeiro is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The Brazilians are +140 favorites (risk $100 to win $140) in the latest Brazil vs. Argentina odds, while the Argentinians are +220 underdogs. A 90-minute draw is priced at +200 and the over/under for total goals scored is 2.5. (For more soccer coverage, click here.)
Before you lock in your Argentina vs. Brazil picks or World Cup Qualifying predictions, you NEED to see what SportsLine's soccer expert Martin Green has to say.
After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since last year's Men's World Cup, Green has been profitable in multiple areas on his soccer picks, including the Champions League (+5.87 units), the FA Cup (+3.07), the EFL Cup (+2.91) and Euro 2024 qualifiers (+6.30), among others.
Green knows Brazil will be hoping to regain the offensive form they had in their opening qualifier, a 5-1 triumph over Bolivia on Sept. 8. Winger Rodrygo shares the team lead with injured forward Neymar with two goals, scoring both in the win against the Bolivians. Forward Gabriel Martinelli netted his first career tally with the national team in last week's loss to Colombia.
The expert also is aware that Lionel Messi continues to be the offensive star for Argentina as he tops the club with three goals. The 36-year-old superstar forward recorded the lone goal in the team's 1-0 triumph over Ecuador in its opening qualifier and accounted for all the scoring in a 2-0 victory against Peru last month. Midfielder Enzo Fernandez and winger Nicolas Gonzalez both have recorded a goal and an assist during qualifying.
