Place Winning Bets on Copa America Football Matches
First played in 1910, Copa America is undoubtedly the oldest football competition in the world. The first official edition of the competition was held in 1916. Three teams that are favorites to win the tournament participated, namely Brazil, Uruguay, and Chile.
Uruguay is at the top of the food chain, with a total of 15 title wins. It’s closely followed by Argentina and Brazil, with each taking pride in having 14 and 9 titles respectively. Other top contenders such as Chile, Paraguay, and Peru have two titles each.
Let’s dive in and look at the four best markets to place accumulator bets.
As the name suggests, you will choose which team to win or draw. This is the most popular market in the football betting industry. Concisely, you select the home team to win, the away team to win, or the match to end in a tie (draw).
Its simplistic nature makes it popular and ideal for new football bettors. However, it is prudent to do extensive research on each team’s performance, especially head-to-head statistics.
In addition, with high-profile tournaments such as Copa America, bookmakers set a fine line behind the no-value and value bet. The pricing in this market is usually too lean. Therefore, it is wise to place an accumulator bet instead of placing single bets to increase the likelihood of winning.
Both Teams to Score
Usually abbreviated as BTTS, virtually all the companies allowed to operate in Canada offer this market. Like the previous market, your bet wins only if both teams score at least one goal.
However, you can choose BTTS No option, which means that only one team will score while the other will maintain a clean sheet. The average odds on this market range between 1.60 and 2.20. Limit yourself to two or three matches per bet.
Win and BTTS YES
Win and BTTS is an improvement of both teams to score market. You win by predicting that either Team A or Team B will win, but both teams will score. Due to its tricky nature, the odds often range between 3.00 and 10.00.
Over and Under 2.5 Goals
This is for Copa America teams that have no problem going aggressively attacking and scoring many goals. Currently, the average stands at 3.18 goals. As with the other markets discussed above, look at the head-to-head statistics to get an idea of how the teams play each other.
Place over 2.5 or over 1.5 goals for teams with a history of scoring more than two goals per match. Under 2.5 or 1.5 is ideal for low-scoring teams and matches involving two equally matched teams.
Increasing the number of matches in the bet increases the odds of winning. Stake wisely and always compare the odds offered by different bookmakers to get the highest value possible. Follow top tipsters to fine-tune your bets, but do your research. Please don’t take their predictions as the gospel truth, and always remember: any outcome is possible.
