Tuesday, June 18
Venezuela vs Brazil
- 2019 Copa America Odds: Venezuela +1830 / Brazil -714
Brazil was on fire in their first Copa America match. They dominated Bolivia 3-0. Going back to their last tune-up battle, the Brazilians put a 7-0 beat down on Honduras. They should beat Venezuela on the handicap here.
The Venezuelans drew 0-0 with Peru but before that they lost 0-3 to the United States. Brazil wins by at least 3 goals.
Soccer Betting Pick: Brazil handicap
Peru vs Bolivia
- 2019 Copa America Odds: Peru -212 / Bolivia +615
Peru had their chances in the 0-0 draw with Venezuela. The match probably shouldn’t have been a draw. The Peruvians had good enough chances to beat Venezuela by at least 2 goals. Expect Peru to pick it up here versus Bolivia.
The Bolivians looked terrible versus Brazil. They didn’t play well in their three matches before the Copa America either, losing 0-2 to France, and 0-1 to both Japan and South Korea. Peru takes this.
Soccer Betting Pick: Peru
Wednesday, June 19
Qatar vs Colombia
- 2019 Copa America Odds: Qatar +769 / Colombia -277
Colombia has beaten their last 3 opponents, Panama, Peru, and Argentina a combined 8 goals to 0. Colombia should outclass Qatar here. Qatar is a decent soccer squad. They drew with Paraguay and only lost 0-2 to Brazil. However, they aren’t on Colombia’s level.
Expect the Colombians to post another clean sheet. They’re a good bet at -1 ¼, -123 on the handicap.
Soccer Betting Pick: Colombia handicap
Paraguay vs Argentina
- 2019 Copa America Odds: Paraguay +592 / Argentina -222
After the 0-2 loss to Colombia, Argentina must really step it up against Paraguay in their second match. Messi’s squad doesn’t seem to have it. They missed some chances versus the Colombians, though, and Paraguay isn’t close to being as capable as Colombia.
Argentina must be aggressive here while Paraguay could only draw 2-2 versus Qatar. Faith in the Argentinians means the -1 ¼, +100 handicap bet is the way to go.
Soccer Betting Pick: Argentina handicap
Thursday, June 20
Japan vs Uruguay
- 2019 Copa America Odds: Japan +1098 / Uruguay -416
This sets up as another handicap bet on the chalk. Japan beat El Salvador 2-0 in their last international friendly match. Before that, they drew 0-0 versus Trinidad and Tobago. Japan is in good form, but they have no chance against Uruguay.
Uruguay can win the Copa America. They’ve outscored their last 4 opponents: Uzbekistan, Thailand, Panama, and Ecuador, a combined 14-0. They beat Ecuador 4-0 in their first Copa America match. Uruguay rolls. Back the Uruguayans on the handicap.
Soccer Betting Pick: Uruguay handicap
Friday, June 21
Chile vs Ecuador
- 2019 Copa America Odds: Chile -121 / Ecuador +345
On paper, Chile looks like the better soccer team. They drew 1-1 with the U.S. and then beat Haiti 2-1 in their last couple of international friendly matches. But, Ecuador might have a shot.
Although Uruguay dominated Ecuador 4-0 in their first Copa America match, the Ecuadorians hung with Mexico 3-2 in their last international friendly. Ecuador has a shot to keep this one close. The draw at +225 might be the way to go.
Soccer Betting Pick: Draw
