Copa America 2024 Winner Odds & Predictions

Last Updated: Jun 12, 2024

Copa America traditionally crowns the top footballing nation in South America. However, this summer’s edition has expanded beyond the continent.

As was the case for the 100-year anniversary tournament in 2016, Copa America 2024 will take place in the United States and feature 16 teams across CONCACAF and CONMEBOL — the North American and South American football associations.

How will the United States, Mexico and Canada hold up against the likes of Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia? Only time will tell.

Let’s look at the latest Copa America 2024 betting odds and pick out our best bets to win the tournament.

Copa America 2024 Winner Odds

Soccer odds for these Copa America 2024 winner picks are current as of Wednesday, June 12, and courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

  • Argentina (+175)
  • Brazil (+225)
  • Uruguay (+500)
  • Mexico (+1100)
  • USA (+1200)
  • Colombia (+1200)
  • Ecuador (+1600)
  • Chile (+2800)
  • Peru (+5000)
  • Venezuela (+7000)
  • Paraguay (+7000)
  • Canada (+7000)
  • Costa Rica (+10000)
  • Jamaica (+15000)
  • Panama (+20000)
  • Bolivia (+20000)

After winning the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, it’s no surprise that Argentina are the favorites to defend their Copa America crown.

Lionel Messi and Co. defeated host nation Brazil in the 2021 Final to win the tournament for a 15th time, matching Uruguay for the most titles in the competition’s history.

It’s no surprise that those three teams are at the top of the odds board, while the U.S. and Mexico fall further down the list.

Copa America 2024 Winner Best Bet

Brazil (+225)

WAGER: 1 Unit • DraftKings Sportsbook

When deciding between Argentina and Brazil, you’re essentially splitting hairs. These are the two most talented teams in the tournament, so I’ll take the slightly longer odds with the Selecao.

Dorival Junior’s squad features a pair of recent Champions League winners in attack, with Real Madrid stars Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo likely to complement Barcelona winger Raphinha at the top of Brazil’s preferred 4-3-3 formation.

Vinicius has made clear his intentions of winning the prestigious Ballon d’Or, annually awarded to the best player in the world the previous season, and leading his country to a title over Messi, the 2023 winner, will surely help that cause.

Look for the lightning-quick winger to make his presence felt and lead his country to the title after its 2021 heartbreak on home soil.

Copa America 2024 Contenders

Argentina (+175)

Argentina have won their last two major tournaments and are likely to continue benefitting from the consistency of working under head coach Lionel Scaloni.

However, some of the key figures of the World Cup-winning squad are getting up there in age. Messi, Angel Di Maria, and Nicolas Otamendi are 36 now, and it’ll be interesting to see how Scaloni balances their minutes and tries to integrate some of the younger talents.

Still, given their form over the last few years, I would be surprised if Argentina aren’t in the Final.

Uruguay (+500)

Uruguay beat Argentina and Brazil in the last cycle of CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying, so they definitely could pull this off.

La Celeste continue to produce top talents up front, with Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez leading the forward line in the spot that was previously occupied by Luis Suarez.

Uruguay’s midfield is anchored by Real Madrid’s Federico Valverde and Tottenham’s Rodrigo Bentancur, while the defense boasts Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa, formerly of Leeds United, is one of the most highly regarded coaches in the sport, and will have his squad organized for any challenges that lay ahead.

Copa America 2024 Sleepers

Colombia (+1200)

If you’re looking beyond the favorites, Colombia could be the team to back.

Nestor Lorenzo’s squad is currently on a 22-match unbeaten run, which it extended with a 5-1 victory over the United States on Saturday.

Liverpool winger Luis Diaz leads the way for this well-balanced squad that still features former Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez.

United States (+1200)

The USMNT hasn’t looked great in pre-tournament friendlies, but there’s only so much we can read into that right now.

This U.S. squad is a very talented group led by talisman Christian Pulisic, who just completed the best season of his career at AC Milan.

However, there are some questions in defense, especially at right back with Sergino Dest injured. And starting goalkeeper Matt Turner is struggling a bit for form after not playing for much of the season at Nottingham Forest.

Still, the United States should get out of the group and could surprise some teams in the knockout rounds.

Chile (+2800)

Chile won this tournament the last time it was hosted in the United States, so the vibes will be there for La Roja.

However, several mainstays of their golden generation, like Alexis Sanchez (35) and Eduardo Vargas (34), are getting up there in age.

The talent is there, but we’ll have to see if they can roll back the years.

Canada (+7000)

Further down the board, Canada are intriguing for a number of reasons.

New manager Jesse Marsch is very highly regarded and believes in a high-pressing style that could work for this young, athletic squad. His team also just earned an impressive draw with France in a recent friendly.

Canada features a world-class talisman in Alphonso Davies, who plies his trade at Bayern Munich, and a talented young forward in Jonathan David.

It’s unlikely that duo can carry Canada to the tournament title, but a trip to the last eight and beyond could create some intriguing hedging opportunities.
