The final four teams to debut at Copa America 2024 will take the field for the first time in the tournament on Monday, June 24. Brazil will take on Costa Rica with the Brazilians coming in as the massive favorites, while Paraguay will contest a supposedly much tighter match with Colombia earlier in the day. We’ve got you covered with a can’t miss parlay for this pair of Group D debut matches.

Colombia vs. Paraguay Best Bet:

Colombia to Win (-143) | Betway

These two South American teams know one another well, with 19 matchups since the turn of the century. Unfortunately for the Paraguayans, they are 4-3-12 in those matches, which doesn’t bode well for them in this fixture considering Colombia has gone 8-2-1 against this nation since 2008.

Colombia has only lost to Paraguay once in the last decade and a half, so the -143 moneyline odds from sports betting sites for Los Cafeteros are a bit surprising here, but we’re not turning our nose up at ‘em either.

If that didn’t convince you, try this: Colombia has won eight straight games leading into the tournament, including wins over Mexico, Spain, and Brazil. Meanwhile, Paraguay has won just one of their last nine outings. This should be an easy start to the parlay.

Brazil vs. Costa Rica Best Bet:

Brazil ML & Over 2.5 Goals (-175) | Betway

Brazil is the No. 4 ranked nation in the world, while Costa Rica is ranked No. 52, representing one of the largest single-match discrepancies you’ll come across in this tournament.

Brazil hasn’t been performing well in the lead up to this Copa, but this Costa Rican side represents an ideal sort of “tune up” game for A Selecao, as Los Ticos have lost their last seven matches against nations that qualified for this tournament.

On the total goals side, Brazil has scored three goals by themselves in two of their last three games, while Costa Rica has seen 3+ total goals in eight of their last 10 outings. The -175 odds from Ontario sportsbooks seem a bit short for a two-piece bet like this, but it’s as close to a lock as you’ll find for this match.

Brazil vs. Costa Rica Best Bet:

Endrick (-115) | Betway

We’re expecting Brazil to score a lot of goals in this match, but the usual suspects haven’t been finding the back of the net much lately.

One man, or, perhaps more accurately, kid, who has been beating the keeper in the leadup to this tourney is 17-year-old youngster Endrick, who has scored in three of his last four Brazil caps, which all took place in 2024.

What makes that feat even more impressive is that he scored all three coming on as a sub. With this match expected to be over early, Endrick is likely to see a lot of run once again.
