Why Argentina is a good bet -126?

Brazil beat Argentina 2-0, but before losing to rival Brazil, Argentina had dominated both Qatar and Venezuela. The Argentinians beat both Qatar and Venezuela by a 2-0 score.

Argentina is likely to produce a formation much like the one they used to beat Venezuela with Messi patrolling the middle behind Aguero and Martinez. That formation might be more effective than the one they had against Brazil. Argentina has a real shot of beating Chile on Saturday if Martinez and Aguero are in top form.

  • W – 2-0 vs Venezuela
  • W – 2-0 vs Qatar
  • D – 1-1 vs Paraguay
  • L -0-2 vs Colombia

Why Chile is a good bet +326?

The 0-3 loss versus Peru got out of hand. Chile entered that match a favorite, but once Peru went up 1-0, the Chileans became deflated. One of the issues in the loss might have been because they had to lay it all on the line in their quarterfinal matchup with Colombia.

Chile beat Colombia on penalty kicks. They looked like a tired team against Peru. If Chile can muster some energy on Sunday, they can surprise Messi and Argentina. That Chilean team, the one that drew against Colombia and ended up knocking out the Colombians, can beat Argentina.

Form Last 5

2019 Copa America Third Place Soccer Betting Analysis

Argentina is the more quality squad in this matchup. The Argentinians looked great in victories over Qatar and Venezuela. They showed up with a slightly different formation against Brazil. That may have cost them at least a draw.

Even if they produce the same formation they did versus Brazil, Argentina should win this in regulation. The Chileans were like a balloon that lost all of its air in the loss to Peru on Wednesday. Chile came out and played worse in the second half than they did in the first.

It’s going to take a lot for Chile to get over the loss while many of Argentina’s players, especially 21-year-old Lautaro Martinez, will be fired up to just be on the pitch. Argentina wins.
