Both Chile and Uruguay started their Copa America adventure strongly trying to ensure qualification as soon as possible. They are two of the most attacking teams in this tournament and as long as they are in it they will produce matches which are very interesting for the neutrals.
Lots of Goals
That’s why one of the first bets which come to mind is backing both teams to score in this match and the match to produce more than 2.5 goals. Bookmakers give enticing odds of 6/4 for the match to finish Over 2.5 and both Chile and Uruguay to score.
Punters can even go further than this and back the match to be a four or five-goal thriller. Backing the match to finish Over 3.5 comes with odds of 3/1 while betting on the Over 4.5 market comes with odds of 7/1.
These bets certainly make sense when you consider the fact that players such as Alexis Sanchez, Eduardo Vargas, Edinson Cavani, and Luis Suarez scored 5 goals between them in only 90 minutes of football in the first round.
Chile Won’t Lose
Bookmakers make Uruguay the out-and-out favourites in this match and that presents an excellent opportunity for punters. This is because Uruguay and Chile are very evenly matched teams and giving Chile high odds of 16/5 to win seems like a little disrespectful to Alexis Sanchez and co.
The Manchester United star will probably be one of the players of this tournament and certainly doesn’t lack the motivation to prove everyone doubting him wrong. That’s why we feel that backing Chile to win with a smaller stake is a very smart decision considering the odds they are given.
If you are still not sure, you should definitely go for Chile to win or draw in the Double Chance market. This proposition comes with more than decent odds of 17/20 and is a relatively safe bet in our opinion.
