Brazil edges Argentina on list of Copa America 2024 favourites

In spite of losing the final of Copa America 2021 to Argentina (0-1) at home in Rio, Brazil is seen as the odds leader of the next event by international betting sites. But their chances dropped. Argentina national team is expectedly placed second. And like before Copa America 2021, Colombia took the third place on the list, whereas Uruguay is fourth.

Brazil was the absolute favourite of the last event. They have justified it at first: Brazil finished the group stage as the leader of the pack and won over each playoff opponent before the final against Argentina. Brazil was close to finishing the tournament in their favour but had little success with a few key moments and lost.

The Brailians are one of the strongest teams in the world right now and the most successful at the World Cup with 5 titles. Brazil to win the title for the 9th time is priced with the odds of 2.70 (+170 American; 17/10 Fractional), which equals an approximate probability of 37%

Argentina is the current champion and the most successful team at Copa America events with 15 titles. They were the absolute favourites of their group and finished first without a loss. Argentina easily won over each of their opponents in the playoffs and edged Brazil.

Strong side of Argentina's roster is individual players’ performances. Lionel Messi has been the top scorer and the top assistant at Copa America 2021 by a giant margin.

Argentina to win the next Copa America event comes with the odds of 3.00 (+200; 2/1). Chances are around 33%.

Colombia and Uruguay are the third and the fourth by betting odds, respectively. Colombia had had problems in the group stage and had finished third, but then they showed solid performance in the playoffs and were close to even qualifying for the finals. But Colombians were unlucky to meet the current champions in the semis and lost on penalties (1-1; 2-3).

Uruguay shined in the group stage and finished second, but a lot of mistakes in the quarter-finals did not let them unfurl their skills in the playoffs.

Colombia to win the next Copa America is priced with the odds of 6.50 (+550; 11/2), chances are around 15.5%. The same outcome for Uruguay comes with the odds of 10.00 (+900; 9/1) and 10% probability.
