As most of us probably expected, Argentina, Uruguay, and Colombia have all made it to the semifinals of this Copa America 2024 tournament. However, instead of another classic South American nation like Brazil filling that last spot, it’s Canada, who did so in their first ever Copa appearance. Unfortunately, we don’t expect the debutantes to make too much noise.

Argentina vs. Canada Best Bet:

Under 2.5 Total Goals (-128) | Betway

These two nations met in the match that kicked off this tournament a couple of weeks ago, and we expect this one to go similarly. While we feel confident about Argentina’s chances, however, we don’t love the moneyline odds we’re getting on them from sports betting sites.

Therefore, we look elsewhere, and offering much more reasonable soccer betting odds is the under on this match’s total goals prop. Six of Canada’s last seven matches, including all four at this tournament, have gone under 2.5, and the same goes for 12 of Argentina’s last 16, including all four of their Copa matches as well.

It would also continue the trend at this tournament, as eight of the 12 matches since the start of Matchday 3 have seen two goals or fewer.

Argentina vs. Canada Best Bet:

Lautaro Martinez Anytime Scorer (+110) | Betway

While Messi has disappointed us to no end at this tournament, his forward-mates have been picking up the slack and then some. Lautaro Martinez has been particularly effective, scoring as a sub in the first two matches.

After that, he took over the starting role from Julian Alvarez, and scored a brace against Peru in the final group match. The first time he took on Canada at this Copa, he scored a goal and had another big chance go begging in just 15 minutes of action. With a full 90, we expect him to find the back of the net again at lovely +110 soccer betting odds.

Uruguay vs. Colombia Best Bet:

Both Teams To Score - Yes (+105) | Betway

As you can tell from the moneyline odds for this one—Colombia at +180, Uruguay at +170—it’s pretty much a toss up. These two teams have probably been the most impressive at this tournament, but there can be only one winner here, and we’re not going to wade into those waters.

While both squads have been impressive defensively, they’ve looked even better when attacking the opponent’s net, as Uruguay has tallied nine goals and Colombia has slotted in 11. Both teams have put up big xG numbers in every match at this tournament, and we expect that to continue.

In their last 27 matches, Colombia has been shutout just three times. Since the start of the 2022 World Cup, Uruguay has been held off the score sheet just a quartet of times in 21 contests. The last time these two met, they played to a 2-2 draw. That’s the type of game we expect—but also that we hope for. And hey, we’re not kicking the +105 odds we’re getting from Ontario sportsbooks out of bed either.
