While the results from Matchday 1 of Group A group play at the 2024 Copa America were pretty much what most would have expected, the way those games actually went was a little bit surprising. Those first two games will help us to gauge where all four teams are at, and cook up the perfect parlay of value picks for June 25’s slate!

Canada vs. Peru Best Bet:

Canada to Win (+130) | Betway

There weren’t many giving Canada a chance in heck in their opener against Argentina, but they put forth a very impressive performance, keeping the match scoreless for the first half before conceding twice in the later stages.

However, they had more than enough chances of their own, showing that they not only had the quality to create issues for the No. 1 team in the world, but that they had the belief to keep pushing and play Argentina in a shrewd but cheeky manner.

Manager Jesse Marsch doesn’t sit back, so he’s going to have the Canadian squad pushing for all three points here. Peru did have their moments in their first match as well, but against a much lesser team. This Canadian squad feels like it’s on the verge of popping so we like them to win here—and the plus money we’re getting on this pick from sports betting sites doesn’t hurt either.

Argentina vs. Chile Best Bet:

Argentina to Win (-222) | Betway

Chile controlled most of their opening match against Peru, coming away with 65 percent of the position. However, they were only able to challenge the Peruvian goalkeeper once, while the Peruvians themselves got four shots on target.

Argentina missed a handful of seemingly gift-wrapped chances against the Canadians, so it does feel like they’re due for a positive regression here as well.

Chile has also been historically awful against Argentina, winning just eight of their 95 fixtures over the years. In competitive matches, Argentina has gone 7-2-2 against Chile since 2011, and La Albiceleste has never lost a game to Chile in regulation time at the Copa. Ever. The odds from Ontario sportsbooks are a little bit steep, but you always need a lock for a solid parlay.

Argentina vs. Chile Best Bet:

Lionel Messi to Score Anytime (-110) | Betway

We mentioned that Argentina is due for some positive regression after missing some big chances against Canada, but we really meant that Messi is due, because, wow, he missed a couple of breakaway chances that were unconscionable for a player of his caliber.

Messi usually loves playing against the Chileans, having scored in five of nine fixtures against these South American foes, which includes a run of three goals in his last four appearances against them. Betway is being very generous with the -110 odds here.

Parlay Summary

Canada to Win+130
