Online Betting: Uruguay Looks To Repeat As Copa America Champ
It’s never easy to repeat as a champion in any tournament, but it becomes even tougher when you have to go against some of the best international teams in the world. That is what Uruguay have to face as they head to Chile in an attempt to win back to back Copa America tournaments. They will start their campaign as online betting favorites against Jamaica on Saturday night at the Estadio Regional de Antofagasta.
Copa America Uruguay vs Jamaica: Online Betting Preview
Date: Saturday June 13th, 2015
Time: 7:00PM ET
Venue: Estadio Regional Calvo y Bascuñan, Antofagasta
Opening Line: Uruguay -400
This will be the first appearance for Jamaica at the Copa America, and you get the sense that the Reggae Boyz may be in over their heads here. The last appearance for Jamaica on the world stage was at France 98, where they earned some fans, thanks to their wide open style of play. They have failed to qualify for the World Cup in the 4 tournaments that followed that one, but they did manage to add 4 Caribbean Cups to their trophy cabinet during that stretch. Jamaica really hasn’t played anyone of note since they met France last year. That might be a good thing, since they went down 8-0 in that game. I have a feeling that thing could be just as unpleasant for them in their first run at the Copa America.
Key Betting Trends
These teams have never met before, but both teams have won 4 of their last 6 international matches (the other 2 games ending in ties)
Consider This Before Placing Your Bets
This is probably the best opening game that Uruguay could have hoped for, as they are up against what is arguably the worst team in the tournament. This should be very comfortable win for Uruguay, possibly in the 4 or 5 goal region.
