2021 Copa America futures odds, best bets: seasoned football expert reveals picks to win, team to avoid
The South American football championship will be on the line when the 2021 Copa America kicks off on Sunday in Brazil. The 105-year-old tournament, which is the oldest national team competition in the world, brings together 10 teams divided into two groups: Group A (Argentina, Bolivia, Uruguay, Chile and Paraguay) and Group B (Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru). The month-long tournament begins on Sunday with Brazil v Venezuela and the 2021 Copa America ends in the final on July 10.
Host nation Brazil are the +120 favorite (risk $ 100 to win $ 120) in William Hill Sportsbook’s 2021 Copa America odds, while Argentina are next at +275. All other teams are +600 or more. Argentinian Lionel Messi is the favorite +400 to be the tournament’s top scorer, while Brazilian Neymar is next with +450. Before making any choices or predictions on Copa America 2021 futures, you need to see what SportsLine football insider Roger Gonzalez is saying.
Gonzalez grew up playing competitive football before going on to become one of the world’s greatest football journalists. After covering football around the world – a Champions League final in Italy, the Copa America, and professional leagues in Argentina – Gonzalez returned to the United States as CBS Sports’ top football expert.
Now Gonzalez has broken down the 2021 Copa America from every possible angle and revealed which teams you should support and which team you should avoid altogether. You can visit SportsLine now to see his picks.
Copa America 2021 best predictions
After studying all the teams on the pitch, Gonzalez completely wipes out Argentina, which is rated +275 at William Hill, behind only Brazil. Ranked No. 8 in the world, the Argentines have not been beaten since their loss in the 2019 Copa America semi-finals to Brazil. They are emerging from a 2-2 draw with Colombia in the World Cup qualifiers on June 8.
In that game, Argentina lost a 2-0 lead, giving up the crushing and equalizing goal in the 94th minute. “This national team barked everything and no bites, and it’s been like that for a while now,” Gonzalez said. “He’s too dependent on Lionel Messi and, with a questionable bottom line outside of Cristian Romero, I think the two-time World Cup champions will need a mini miracle to win the Copa America.”

Gonzalez analyzed 2021 Copa America support from all angles and locked in his pick to win and a top scorer pick that would come down to 4-1. He only shares his top picks here.
