ARGENTINA STILL THE FAVORITES DESPITE MESSI’S AGE

Lionel Messi is also three months away from turning 37et.

Yet, Argentina remains the top bet to win the 16-team tournament.

Messi will turn a new leaf on June 24, or four days after the 48th Copa America opens at 14 venues across the United States.

Yet, Argentina is listed as+200 to win it all, meaning a bettor needs to bet $10 to win $30 in total. Based on the list by Fox Sports Soccer Writer Doug McIntyre.

BRAZIL HOPES TO WIN RIGHT AWAY WITH NEW COACH

Brazil follows Argentina at +225, meaning a bettor must bet $10 to win $32.50 in total.

New coach Dorival Junior looks to crowd Messi and Argentina to the top in the tournament that runs from June 20 to July 14.

Injuries to strikers Matheus Cunha and Neymar forced them to be ruled out of Copa America.

However, oddsmakers still believe that Brazil can top Group D which also includes Colombia and Paraguay.

URUGUAY TO RELY ON BIELSA RETURN AFTER 20 YEARS

One thing going for Uruguay (+500) that might have kept bettors invested is the return of the legendary Marcelo Alberto Bielsa in Copa America

Bielsa is coming back to the CONMEBOL Copa America sidelines since 2004 in Peru, where he coached Argentina in the final.

Interestingly, the El Loco last entered the final in 2004 and reached the quarterfinals in 1999.

EARLY FRIENDLIES CRUCIAL FOR COLOMBIA

Colombia is fourth at +900 (bet $10 to win $100 total), with its chances still strong despite the presence of Brazil in the same group.

The Colombians placed third in the 2021 edition in Brazil and will open their Copa America 2024 campaign against Paraguay on June 243 in Houston.

Coach Nestor Lorenzo hopes his team will be tested early when they face Spain and Romania in friendlies on March 22 and 26.

USMNT HOPES FOR DEEP RUN FOR HOME FANS

United States has the home crowd on its side, as the hosts seek to make a deep run and sustain the resurgence of soccer in the country.

The Americans are fifth at +1200 (bet $10 to win $130), with the USMNT also considered by most observers as the strongest team in the CONCACAF.

The USMNT opens its campaign against Bolivia in Arlington, Texas, on June 23 before taking on fellow Group C mates Panama in Atlanta on June 27.
