Having come so close to winning the World Cup in the backyard of rivals Brazil last summer, Argentina are hoping to secure some silverware this season. La Albiceleste lost the 2014 final in Rio de Janeiro due to an extra-time strike from Mario Gotze, but they'll be hoping to use that heartache as motivation in Chile this summer.

With Lionel Messi, largely regarded as one of the best two players in world football, leading them out, it's hard to back against them. The likes of Sergio Aguero and Javier Mascherano add quality throughout, but Tata Martino's men willl have to face holders Uruguay in the group stages.

You can get massive odds of 12/1 for Los Charruas to retain the trophy they have won more than any other team. The reason for such high odds? Probably the lack of talismanic forward Luis Suarez, who is still suspended from competitive international football due to his infamous bite on Giorgio Chiellini at last year's World Cup.

Instead backed in at shorter odds are Chile, who enjoyed some terrific performances against the likes of Spain and Australia in Brazil last summer. With the home advantage, they could be a very good bet to win the whole tournament at odds of 9/2, with Arsenal marksman Alexis Sanchez set to be their key player.

This tournament also represents a chance for Brazil to bounce back to competitive form following their embarrassing semi-final defeat to Germany on home soil last year. 12 months under re-instated manager Dunga appear to have ease worries among the Selecao players and staff - expect Neymar to do all he can to light up the tournament.

Another team backed in at shorter odds than Uruguay is Colombia. Again, this will be due to their fine performances at last year's World Cup where they reached the quarter-finals. A plethora of exciting attacking players make Los Cafeteros one of the best teams to watch and they'll look to play through Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.

Elsewhere, Paraguay, who were runners up in Argentina four years ago, are now out to a huge 40/1. Paraguay and Peru share odds of 66/1 given their recent poor form on the international stage, with outsiders Bolivia, who haven't won the tournament since the 1930s, at 100/1 and an intriguing but inconsistent Mexico outfit priced at 20/1.

Last but not least, Jamaica will take part in this competition for the first time as one of the two 'invited teams' along with Mexico. The Reggae Boyz may come into the tournament on the back of 5 straight victories but 2014 defeats to Canada and France have no doubt played some part in their pricing of a huge 500/1 to win the Copa America.

2015 Copa America winner odds with bet365:

Argentina - 9/4
Brazil - 3/1
Chile - 9/2
Colombia - 11/2
Uruguay - 12/1
Ecuador - 25/1
Mexico - 20/1
Paraguay - 40/1
Peru - 66/1
Venezuela - 66/1
Bolivia - 100/1
Jamaica - 500/1
