Copa America: Argentina Clear Soccer Betting Favorite vs Paraguay
The world’s oldest international soccer tournament, the Copa America, is set to begin, with Chile serving as the host nation this time around. Uruguay is the defending champion, but it is Argentina and Brazil who most see as soccer betting favorites to win the 12-team tournament that runs from June 11 through July 4. Argentina get the tournament underway against Paraguay on Saturday night at the Estadio La Portada.

The World Cup in France in 1998 looked as though it was going to be the start of a new era for Paraguayan football. They qualified for the 3 World Cups that followed that one, and even managed to get into the quarter finals in their best appearance. It has been a team in disarray since coach Gerardo Martino left to take over the reins of the Argentinian squad in 2011. 3 coaches came and went in the years that followed before Paraguay finally settled on Ramon Diaz. It has been an inauspicious start for the new coach, though, as he has failed to get a win in the three games Paraguay have played under his tenure.

Consider This Before Placing Your Bets
History has not been kind to Paraguay when they face Argentina, as they have only managed 15 wins in 103 attempts. I don’t see them getting number 16 here, and I like Argentina to come out with a 4-1 win.
