Brazilian Série A Outright Odds for 2023
The Série A is the top division of the Brazilian football league system. The league is considered one of the strongest in South America: eight Brazilian teams are in the top 10 of the continental club rankings. Also, for the past three years, two Brazilian teams have competed in the final of the CONMEBOL Libertadores, the main club tournament in South America.
For bettors, the Série A is attractive due to its "spring - autumn" format. While the top European leagues are on summer break, the Brazilian tournament is in full swing. Here, bets are accepted on both match outcomes and overall tournament results. The list of Brazilian Série A winner odds 2023 is in the table below.

|Red Bull Bragantino
Among the Brazilian Série A favourites, Botafogo has the best chances of winning the tournament. After 26 rounds, the team has a nine point lead, the best goal difference and the best defence in the league.
Palmeiras has good odds to win the Brazilian Série A too. According to Transfermarkt, the team ranks second in the league in terms of squad value after Flamengo (160 million euros), which is almost twice as much as the next pursuer. With such a set of performers, the club is capable of reducing the gap to the leader and fighting for the trophy.
Most Wins in the Brazilian Série A
Palmeiras is the most titled Brazilian club and current national champion. The team from São Paulo has won the Série A 11 times. Santos is in second place with 8 trophies. The last time the team won the tournament was back in 2004. You can check out other Série A champions in the table below:

Brazilian Série A Relegation Odds for 2023
Another type of Brazilian Série A outright odds is betting on a team to be relegated at the end of the championship. According to league rules, the four worst clubs of the season (17th to 20th place) are relegated to the lower division – the Série B.
After 26 rounds, Coritiba and América Mineiro are the main contenders for relegation. Over 25 rounds, they have lost about 60% of their games and trail 16th place by more than 8 points. Taking into account that both clubs have one of the weakest squads in the Série A, their chances of avoiding relegation are minimal.

Brazilian Série A Top Scorer Odds for 2023
In addition to outright Brazilian Série A odds on team results, you can also place player props. The most popular bet of this kind is on the league's top scorer, i.e. a player who will score the most goals.
According to bookmakers, Tiquinho Soares is the main contender for the award this season. After 26 rounds, the Botafogo forward has scored 15 goals, with a three-goal lead over his closest pursuer. Other contenders include Marcos Leonardo (Santos) and Paulinho (Atlético Mineiro).

Factors to consider when betting on the Brazilian Série A
The first association that comes to mind when we talk about Brazilian football is lots of feints and beautiful goals. While feinting is indeed present, there is a problem with scoring goals. This season, the average goal scoring rate of Série A matches is 2.43. And this is not an anomaly – in the previous two years, this indicator was even lower. That is why, we recommend paying slightly more attention to "Under 2.5" options. The exceptions are Coritiba and América Mineiro. In matches with these teams, the 3.5 total option is successful in 66% of cases.
Another trend lies in the advantage of home teams. In this season, clubs gain 65% of their points in home matches. São Paulo (85%) and Fluminense (80%) are particularly noteworthy in this regard. So, when placing 1/X/2 bets, give more preference to hosts.
Are Brazilian Série A betting odds on UKClubSport profitable and safe?

Who won the Brazilian Série A last season?
Palmeiras is the champion of the previous season. In 38 matches, the team won 23 games and clinched the title three rounds before the end of the championship. In addition, Palmeiras players took almost all the individual awards of the 2022 season, including the best goal of the 2022 season.
