What is Copa América?

Copa América is the premier cup competition for national soccer teams in South America, with a few out-of-region guests sprinkled in to fill out the field of 16 teams.

International football is divided up into regions. Countries in each specific region compete against each other not only for qualification to major events like the World Cup, but there are also Cup competitions that award more local honors. In South America that competition is the Copa América.

Held every four years, Copa América captivates fans not just in South America, but worldwide with its blend of skill, passion, and drama. Copa América is where legendary national teams like Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, and other South American powers meet to determine ultimate bragging rights. Local rivalries will be on full display during the Copa América.

What makes Copa América a great event to bet on?

Copa América is set to be one of the marquee betting events of Summer 2024. Here’s why…

Every match matters

First, Copa América only takes place every four years – so it’s a rare event. Each edition of the tournament arrives with a wave of anticipation from fans and bettors alike. Every match matters, every goal counts, and the stakes are unmistakably high as teams strive for continental glory. The weight of each game amplifies the excitement of betting on the Copa América.

Intense regional rivalries

Since Copa América is a regional tournament, there are intense rivalries at play. The South American nation’s that compete in the Copa América have been clashing with regularity since the inaugural tournament in 1916. There’s a lot of bad blood, leading to fierce competition. No matter if you’re a fan of the sport or not, there’s an extra layer of excitement when major rivals meet on the pitch.

Plus, with the addition of six CONCACAF teams for the 2024 tournament, the rivalries aren’t exclusive to South America.

World class talent

South America is a hot bed for soccer talent across the globe, and the best of the region’s best will be on full display for Copa América 2024. Vinicius Junior, Lautaro Martínez, Federico Valverde, Rodrygo, Moisés Caicedo, Luis Díaz, and of course… Lionel Messi, just to name a few, will all be suiting up to represent their nations.

The perfect time for a major tournament

Held during the summer months, Copa América provides a perfect storm for not just soccer enthusiasts, but all fans of high level sports. At a time when most major domestic leagues like the NBA, NHL, and NFL are not in season, the void is filled with vibrant international football. Betting on Copa América will be one of the marquee events of the summer. Notably, Hard Rock Bet will offer Euro 2024 odds, too.

In essence, the infrequent occurrence of the tournament, combined with the significant impact of each game and its prime summer scheduling, makes Copa América an exceptional event to bet on. It offers a unique and exhilarating experience that captivates both soccer fans and sports bettors, ensuring that every moment is loaded with potential and excitement.

Popular Copa América bets

Make the most of the Copa América betting experience with Hard Rock Bet’s guide to the tournament’s most popular wagering options. From classic moneyline bets to exciting player props, we’ll walk you through the diverse array of markets available for this prestigious soccer competition.

Join us as we uncover the excitement and opportunity that awaits in the world of Copa América betting.

Copa América moneyline bets

Copa América moneyline bets, AKA winner bets here on Hard Rock Bet, are a fundamental wager that allows you to predict the outright winner of a match. At Hard Rock Bet, you’ll find odds on every game, giving you the chance to back your favorite teams with a legal wager.

Notably, group stage matches will be offered as 3-Way winners, with odds for a tie factoring in alongside the home team, or the away team winning. In the example below, the betting odds for Copa América’s opening game include prices of -275 on Argentina to win (bet $275 to win $100), +375 for a tie (bet $100 to win $375), and Canada +700 to win (bet $100 to win $700).

All Copa América group stage games will feature this 3-Way structure.

Once the tournament reaches the knockout round you will still be able to bet the 3-Way moneyline for the 90-minute result, however, one team will have to advance due to the nature of the tournament and an additional 2-Way moneyline will be available where bettors are simply selecting the team they believe will advance.

Spread betting for Copa América

Spread betting for soccer games, including Copa América, involves picking a side to win with a handicap accounted for. With spread betting at Hard Rock Bet, you’re not just picking a winner; you’re analyzing the margin of victory.

Not all teams playing in the Copa América tournament are equal – there are powerhouses like Argentina, the defending World Cup Champions, and there are underdogs that aren’t fortunate enough to have Lionel Messi on their roster. Spread betting helps even the scales, assigning a handicap to the favored teams. For example, Argentina might be a 1.5 goal favorite over another team. If you bet the spread, they will need to win the game by 2 goals to cover the bet.

While it can be more difficult to win a spread bet than a moneyline wager which doesn’t depend on the margin of victory (simply betting Argentina to win is more likely to happen than Argentina to win my multiple goals), the payout can also be greater, making spreads one of the most popular ways to bet on the Copa América.

Copa América futures

Copa América futures betting markets allow for players to make wagers on longer-term outcomes, like group winners or the eventual champion of the tournament.
