thumbnail Hello,

South America's big two lead the betting odds, with bookmakers forecasting them to meet yet again in the final at a short price before a ball has been kicked

Hosts Argentina have been installed as the bookmakers' favourite to reclaim the Copa America on home soil.

Lionel Messi and company are trading @ 1.90 with Unibet to win their first South American crown since 1993. The Albiceleste have triumphed on six occasions when the tournament has been played in Argentina and a price less than evens does not scream value.

Holders Brazil are a longer 2.85 to make it a hat-trick of Copa America in the home of their fierce rivals. New boss Mano Menezes has yet to convince the Brazilian public of his merits but the Selecao have won four of the last five events.

Brazil and Argentina have met in the previous two finals and are a short 1.60 to do so again.

Uruguay have won the Copa America a joint record 14 times but are well behind the continent's big two @ 12.0. Last year's World Cup semi-finalists won the tournament most recently in 1995.

Chile are 14.0 to win their first ever Copa America crown. Barcelona-bound Alexis Sanchez could be the man to help the nation yearning for a South American title. His side are 2.30 to win their group which features Uruguay, Mexico and Peru.

Paraguay upset the odds to reach the World Cup quarter-finals in South Africa and are a lengthy 20.0 to go all the way in Argentina. Colombia (34.0) should progress with Argentina out of Group A and will look to Porto superstar Falcao to supply the goals.

Ecuador have never reached the final and are unlikely to do so now at a price of 50.0 with Unibet. Punters fancying Mexico (50.0) to add the Copa America to their Gold Cup triumph should tread carefully as they are fielding a young experimental team without Chicharito in their ranks.

Venezuela
reached the quarter-finals as hosts in 2007 before being thumped by Uruguay 4-1. An unlikely victory is 100.0 with Venezuela 35.0 to top Group B ahead of fancied Brazil.

Perennial quarter-finalists Peru (120.0) have suffered with injuries to many of their key players and are 30.0 to top Group C, which features Chile, Uruguay and Mexico.

Little is expected of Bolivia (150.0) and Costa Rica (150.0), who are drawn together in Group A.
