Brazil betting, two value bets 12 Oct

Bahia - Cruzeiro, Bahia -0.25 @ 2.15 (bet365)
Bahia have three straight home wins, Cruzeiro three straight defeats on the road. The hosts also stayed undefeated at the hands of Botafogo in previous round which should be a decent morale boost. My only concern is their previous meetings that saw Botafogo winning last four (both home and away) and at the same place they won last time 7-0. But, at this price it’s a decent value on Bahia.
Bet: Bahia -0.25
Odd: 2.15 (Bet365)
Stake: 2/10

Corinthians - Botafogo, Corinthians -0.5 @ 1.88 (Ladbrokes)
Corinthians are the first with great home record 10W-1D-3D. Botafogo are fifth, but it seems they’re in some kind of downtrend. Winless in last three (one win of last six in league), in the previous round played only a draw against Bahia. Nothing much to say, in my opinion this is a good price for a home win.

Bet: Corinthians
Odd: 1.88 (Ladbrokes)
Stake: 2/10
