Argentina v Chile betting odds – Albiceleste big favourites

Until recently, Argentina were going to host the 2021 Copa America although the COVID-19 pandemic is somewhat rife in this country and that means that La Albiceleste must instead travel to Brazil to compete in a tournament where they don’t have a particularly strong track record.

While Lionel Scaloni can still count on Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero to deliver goals for the national team, there are question marks over the team’s big tournament pedigree and the preparations have been thrown into disarray due to having to relocate.

Argentina Odds-On in 2021 Copa America Betting

Argentina are trading at Copa America betting odds of 4/6 to claim a victory at the Estádio Olímpico Nilton Santos in Rio de Janeiro, with the bookies anticipating that they can edge out their opponents and the two teams met just a few days ago where a 1-1 draw was played out at the Santiago del Estero in Argentina.

On that occasion, a Lionel Messi penalty was cancelled out by an Alexis Sanchez equaliser, with both teams playing at a fairly pedestrian pace and there isn’t a huge amount to learn from this match considering that the intensity levels will be much higher in the tournament.

This could feasibly be the final Copa America for Messi who is among the favourites in the Golden Boot betting odds, with Aguero having recently joined his friend by signing for Barcelona and perhaps he’ll get the opportunity to rove forward in this clash.

Can Chile Rediscover Magic Touch at the Copa America?

Chile are in a good place right now and will have drawn plenty of confidence from that 1-1 draw against Argentina which acted as a warm-up clash for the 2021 Copa America.

Alexis Sanchez has been a reliable operator for La Roja despite having a mixed time of things when it has come to his club career, while he is flanked by plenty of other members of the old guard and that includes Charles Aránguiz and Eduardo Vargas, while Gary Medel and Mauricio Isla are experienced operators in front of Claudio Bravo so they can't be easily discounted.

What Are the Best Bets for Argentina v Chile?

Indeed, there’s definitely a case to be made for opposing Argentina in this clash and it should be noted that there will be eight of the ten Copa America side featuring at the quarter final stage, so this is by no means a must-win clash for two teams who will have ambitions to go far.

We think that the BTTS Yes option is worth pursuing and we can also bet on the draw with a degree of confidence, with another 1-1 scoreline one to consider at betting odds of around 6/1.
