Latest outright odds for the 2019 Copa America – preview of the tournament in Brazil and a guide to the range of bets available.

Brazil have not been crowned South American champions on any of their last three attempts, but are warm favourites to lift the 2019 Copa America title on home soil.

After winning four out of five editions of this tournament between 1997 and 2007, Brazil have failed to reach even the semi-finals on all three occasions since then as Uruguay and Chile the last twice have reigned supreme.

But this time around, Tite’s side, who lost to Belgium in the quarter-finals of last summer’s World Cup, have received a very favourable draw with their group-stage opponents being, in order, Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru.

Tite will, however, have to run a tight ship amid rumours that Neymar is unhappy at having had the captaincy taken away from him and given to his Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Dani Alves.

The 5/4 favourites with bookmaker William Hill, Brazil are considerably shorter in the betting than 9/2 second choice Argentina (bet365) who have appointed Lionel Scaloni as manager until the end of the Copa America.

Argentina have been runners-up four times out of the last five and this is likely to be among the last chances for Lionel Messi to finally capture the biggest omission from his glittering CV – a major international title.

Starting their campaign against Colombia in Salvador on Saturday June 15, the Albiceleste have also been grouped with Paraguay and invitees Qatar – who this year were crowned Asian champions and are also the hosts of the 2022 World Cup.

Uruguay are third in the outright betting at 15/2 with Paddy Power and their hopes could hinge on the fitness of striker Luis Suarez, who missed the end of Barcelona’s season after undergoing knee surgery.

First opponents for Uruguay will be Ecuador before they also take on the other invitees, Japan, and defending champions Chile.

The bookmakers believe only two other teams outside of the top three in the betting have a realistic chance of winning the Copa America and they are Colombia and Chile.

Colombia, who were knocked out on penalties by England in the round-of-16 at last year’s World Cup, have a new coach in former Portugal and Iran manager Carlos Queiroz, while Chile’s two Copa America triumphs in the last four years came under Jorge Sampaoli but they now have Reinaldo Rueda in charge.
