Copa America Betting – The Teams That Should Emerge From The Copa America Quarterfinals

The sports betting odds for the quarterfinals of the Copa America in Argentina won’t be out for a few days as the group stages are wrapping up and the quarters actually start on Saturday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look ahead. Here are our picks for the teams we think will make the quarterfinal round, and then their chances of advancing to the semifinals, which begin next Tuesday.

Colombia

The Colombians were the surprise of the group stages, winning Group A over the hosts from Argentina, and they didn’t allow a goal throughout the group stages. They’re a well organized group with a striker that should be getting more attention in Falcao, who scored a pair of goals against Bolivia. They have a good pedigree in this tournament, winning in 2001 and a fourth-place finish in 2004, so a trip to the semifinals isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

Betting Edge: Advance

Argentina

The hosts should be able to beat Costa Rica in their finale to get to the next round, but they should have also beaten Bolivia and possibly Colombia, instead settling for a pair of draws. Lionel Messi is drawing fire for not scoring, but the team as a whole hasn’t been that good. Until an Argentinean coach finds a way to replicate Barcelona’s system, we’re afraid they won’t get the best out of Messi (although Argentina doesn’t have the quality of Barca)

Betting Edge: Advance

Brazil

The defending champions have been brutal on both sides of the ball as they have to beat Ecuador to get to the next round, and Neymar has definitely faded under the spotlight as he was one of the players to watch in the Copa America. The defense has looked slow and cumbersome at time, and Robinho has struggled as well. The young midfield may be the thing that is holding this team together. It’s going to be tough for the champions get to the quarters, much less the semis.

Betting Edge: Fail To Advance

Paraguay

Many soccer betting players thought of Paraguay as a darkhorse that could take down teams like Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, but they missed a golden opportunity to hurt the Brazilians by losing a late lead in a 2-2 draw. They did well to pounce on the Brazilians’ mistakes, but shaky defending brought them down and now they have to beat Venezuela just to get to the next round. That defending will be their downfall.

Betting Edge: Fail To Advance

Chile

Chile may be the most entertaining team of the tournament so far, and even though they need a draw with Peru to go through to the next round, they’re going to go for a win. Alexis Sanchez scored the equalizer for Chile in their 1-1 draw with Uruguay, and he is one to watch as he is reportedly close to sigining with Barcelona. Their go-for-broke style will be rewarded in a trip to the final four.

Betting Edge: Advance

Peru

Peru should be sitting pretty, but a late draw with Uruguay in their opener has tem needing a draw with Chile in their next match. The Peruvians should go at Chile in what should be an enthralling game, but like many of the teams in the tournament, Peru has had some shocking defending late in matches. They’ve reached the quarterfinals in each of the last four editions of the Copa America, but again, their journey stops here.

Betting Edge: Fail To Advance

Uruguay

Uruguay has to rely on being of the top third-place teams to get to the quarterfinals, and they’ve been just as disappointing as Brazil or Argentina. Diego Forlan looks like a shadow of the player who fired Uruguay to fourth place in the World Cup, although Luis Suarez has looked extremely good for his team. But one man can’t carry a team in a tournament as close as this and unless Forlan finds his form of last summer, Uruguay will crash out.

Betting Edge: Fail To Advance

Venezuela

Venezuela is leading their group with one game to go, but a loss to Paraguay could relegate them to the final quarterfinal spot. In all honesty, just getting out of the first round for the first time since 1967 is a big enough accomplishment for the country, but the Venezuelans don’t have the quality to compete at this stage of the tournament, so stay away from their online betting odds.
