Group A action continues in Copa America 2021 with Uruguay and Bolivia facing off in the early game with Chile and Paraguay meeting in the primetime slot. Here’s how the public is wagering on both games.
June 24 betting splits
Bolivia vs. Uruguay
Bolivia (+1400): 19% handle, 7% bets
Tie (+510): 4% handle, 3% bets
Uruguay (-480): 77% handle, 90% bets
Uruguay is the heavy favorite at -480 and bettors are reacting, with 90 percent of the public taking the favorite. Bolivia is getting about a fifth of the money but those bettors are likely going with a high risk, high reward approach rather than actually thinking the team will win.
Chile vs. Paraguay
Chile (+160): 87% handle, 79% bets
Tie (+188): 4% handle, 12% bets
Paraguay (+215): 9% handle, 9% bets
Chile has yet to lose in Copa America and is rightfully getting a majority of the money and bets, but Paraguay is no pushover. The odds suggest this will be a decent contest, but Chile is the pick here.
