2021 Copa America Odds, Tips & Prediction

Argentina Copa America odds

Time is running out for Lionel Messi to win his first international trophy as a player and his Argentina side enter the 2021 Copa America as firm favourites.

La Albiceleste are joint hosts along with Colombia for this summer’s tournament but they haven’t tasted continental success since 1993. Runners-up four times since their last victory, should Argentina finish top of their group, they will play every match except the final on home soil.

After taking the reigns following Argentina’s disappointing 2018 World Cup campaign, Lionel Scaloni was put in charge of the national team before the 2019 Copa America. However, after being beaten by eternal enemies Brazil in the semi-finals, the two-time World champions are eager to go one better and reach their sixth major tournament final this century.

Priced at 15/8 to win the competition, it’s easy to see why, as Messi will be joined by a star-studded cast this summer. Attacking talents like Sergio Aguero, Paulo Dybala, and Angel Di Maria are expected to shine for the hosts and on paper they are clear favourites at a time where Brazil and Chile are not what they once were.

Brazil Copa America odds

Victory over Peru in the 2019 Copa America final was Brazil’s ninth continental title and the reigning champions will be looking to make it number 10 in this year’s edition as the second favourites alongside arch-rivals, Argentina.

Dani Alves was an unlikely winner of the Golden Ball three years ago and the ex-Barcelona right-back is in line to make a shock return to the Brazil squad ahead of the tournament. Now playing for Sao Paulo, the three-time Champions League winner has impressed in his new role as a central midfielder for Hernán Crespo’s men.

Alves captained the side in 2019 and will be one of many Seleção players returning to look for a second consecutive Copa America success. Goalscorer in the final, Gabriel Jesus, will be joined by Roberto Firmino, Thiago Silva, and talisman Neymar and despite losing key players down the years, they remain a threat to anyone.

Brazil have retained the trophy twice before and they’re joint-favourites at 2/1 to come out on top in 2021.

Colombia Copa America odds

Relative underperformers in international football, Colombia have only won the Copa America once. Lifting the trophy the last time they were host nations in 2001, record goalscorer and captain, Radamel Falcao will be hoping to steer his country to their second continental title.

Making his international tournament debut ten years ago at the 2011 edition in Argentina, this summer’s tournament is likely to be the 35-year-old's last ever Copa America appearance. The ex-Manchester United and Chelsea striker will be joined by current Everton midfielder, James Rodriguez.

Colombia manager, Reinaldo Rueda, will be hoping the duo channel their performances from the 2014 World Cup, when Los Cafeteros made it to their first-ever quarter-final in the competition. Expected to finish as runners-up in Group B to Brazil, Colombia are backed at 9/2 to become champions of South America for a second time.

Uruguay Copa America odds

With 15 wins to their name, no side has more Copa America titles than Uruguay and Oscar Tabarez’s side are well placed to extend that record this summer.

Last crowned champions in 2011, Luis Suarez netted four times on Uruguay’s route to victory, including the opening goal during their 3-0 win over Paraguay in the final. Having shone for Atletico Madrid in La Liga this season, the now 34-year-old is one of many seasoned pros in the Uruguay ranks.

Current captain Diego Godin and Manchester United striker Edison Cavani came on as substitutes in the 2011 final and will feature heavily for La Celeste at this year’s tournament. They’re 8/1 to replicate their performances of ten years ago.

Chile Copa America Odds

Winners in two of the last three Copa Americas, outsiders Chile are a dark horse for glory in 2021. Firstly in 2015 as host nation and a year later for the tournament’s centenary edition, those two victories remain Chile’s only international titles. Beating Argentina on penalties both times, Martín Lasarte’s side have been drawn against the hosts in Group A this year.

Pivotal in la Roja’s two successful Copa America campaigns, Inter Milan forward Alexis Sanchez has enjoyed a rejuvenated season for the Serie A champions and will be crucial to Chiles’ chances in Argentina and Colombia this summer.

With tournament winning experience in their ranks, Chile might be a long-shot at 12/1, but they’re definitely not to be underestimated.
