2019 Copa America Betting Preview

The 2019 Copa America has begun, and will wrap up during the first week of July. Brazil is the host nation for the 49th running of this event, and they also come into this tournament as the heavy favorites to win the title. This event is a nice warmup for the World Cup, and it features some of the best players and best soccer teams in the world. This event competes against the Women's World Cup which is taking place in Paris, France, but there is still plenty of intrigue surrounding the Copa America. Let's take a look at the current odds to win the 2019 Copa America and highlight a few of the teams participating.

Current Odds to Win 2019 Copa America:

Brazil +125: Brazil is the host country of this event, and they are also the heavy favorite to take home the title. Team Brazil comes into the tournament having won four of their last five matches, and they will be extremely hard to beat on their own soil. Brazil should have a pretty easy time of it in Group A, and they should be pretty fresh heading into the quarter final stage.
Argentina +350: Argentina hasn't won this event since 1993, but this feels like their best shot to end that drought. Argentina should roll through Group B, and they feature the best individual player in Lionel Messi. Argentina has ran into some tough luck in recent Copa America events, but this could be their best chance to breakthrough. They should advance to the semifinal round with little trouble.
Uruguay +700: Uruguay is the heavy favorite to advance through Group C, but they should have the toughest opposition to get the job done. Uruguay has won this event 15 times which is the most by any country participating this year. Luis Suarez is the best player on the Uruguay roster and this might be his final chance to win this event. If they can get through Group C unscathed then they will be a team to keep an eye on.
Chile +1400: Chile is the reigning champion in this event, having won the title in both 2015 and 2016. Chile will be playing in Group C with Uruguay, and they pose the biggest threat to take down one of the top three team. This is the most experienced team in the tournament by a large margin, and they know how to put it together in this event. Don't be surprised if Team Chile pulls off a few upsets again in 2019.
Peru +2000
Paraguay +3300
Venezuela +3300
Bolivia +5000
Ecuador +5000
Japan      +5000
Qatar      +8000

The Pick:

There is just no way that we can pick against Brazil in this event. The host nation comes into this event playing great team soccer, and they have the individual talent to get the job done. There are some other teams that will pose a significant threat, but the home fans are going to get to watch their team lift the trophy in July. Bet Brazil +125 over the field in the 2019 Copa America soccer tournament.
