I would keep it short and sweet and go with something like this 

“I’m so happy to share this day with my brother. His happiness is something I value more than he knows. Thank you all for being here today with us as we help this couple take their first steps into a very exciting new phase of their lives. To my brother, I wish nothing but happiness for you always, congratulations! 

Boom! Done! If he wants he can focus more on his relationship with his brother and about him wanting to be supportive and always a part of his life. Keep it nice, heartfelt, and short. To the point. 🙂

He can talk about how much he loves his brother, has always been close to him, and wants nothing but the best for him and for his brother to be really happy.  Your SO may not like the bride, but if she makes the groom happy (or honestly, so as not to risk upsetting the relationship between brothers at all, even if she doesn’t) your SO can say “and I’m so, so glad that he has found happiness in his bride, I wish them a long, wonderful, happy marriage, filled with love and everything that my wonderful brother deserves in life. To the bride and groom!” (he can say this because even if he hates the bride, I’m assuming he is wishing his brother will have a happy marriage)

Right. So the best man speech is often designed all around the best man’s relationship with the groom. So I agree with the previous posts to have him discuss what a great guy the groom is and then with the couple well in the future. All I assume would be truthful…as he wants the best for them.
