The Tipster is bitterly disappointed Team GB won’t be featuring in the men’s Olympic final, but he has no choice but to move on and is backing one of his favourite players, Neymar, to score for Brazil against Mexico on Saturday.

Our resident betting expert is also tipping Giovani dos Santos to find the net at Wembley, but still expects Brazil to triumph in what should be a final full of goals.

Neymar to score for Brazil against Mexico – 20/21

In the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi from the Olympic football tournament, Neymar has been the star of the Games. The Santos striker has scored three times en route to the final and the Tipster is backing the 20-year-old to net at any time at Wembley at 20/21.

Over 2.5 goals in Brazil v Mexico – 8/11

Aside from a dull goalless draw in their opener, Mexico’s games have totalled 14 goals – that’s an average of over three goals per game. Meanwhile, each of Brazil’s games on their passage to the final have finished with over 2.5 goals. So the Tipster is backing over 2.5 goals again on Saturday at 8/11.

Brazil to score over 2.5 goals against Mexico – 7/4

Brazil have scored the most goals of any nation at the tournament, netting at least three goals in each of their five matches. True, it’s hardly a surprising statistic, with a squad containing Chelsea target Hulk and Neymar. But the Tipster is still backing Brazil to continue their good form and score at least three goals in the final against Mexico at 7/4.

Dos Santos to score for Mexico against Brazil – 13/5

Dos Santos has put a miserable few seasons at Tottenham behind him during the past fortnight in London, and he has been one of Mexico’s most impressive performers. The 23-year-old has scored three goals in the tournament – matching Neymar – and the Tipster is backing the Spurs forward to bag another goal against Brazil at solid odds of 13/5.

The long shot: Brazil to win from behind against Mexico – 6/1

Brazil may have excelled in attack, but they have struggled defensively over the course of the tournament. Belarus, Eygpt and Honduras have all netted against Brazil, who have conceded a total of five goals. With those stats in mind, the Tipster’s audacious long shot is Brazil to come from behind and beat Mexico at 6/1. You heard it here first.
