Copa America 2015 Group Betting Tips

Although Chile are the favourites to win Group A, we’ll be putting out money on Mexico who look very convincing at 7/2 with Betway.

Group B is not really worth betting on, with Argentina a shoo in and at the short odds of 2/7.

For Group C, your best bet is a shock Colombia first place over favourites Brazil. Colombia are priced at 2/1 to cause an upset and top the group.
