COPA AMERICA | Best Longshots Futures Bets

Our Soccer expert is back with a few big price selections ahead of the upcoming Copa America tournament

With the European Championships getting underway earlier this week, the summer of soccer officially gets into full swing on Thursday as the Copa America gets underway.

Our soccer tipster has already named a handful of futures selections for the upcoming tournament – but he has dived even deeper into the three-week competition, picking out a few longshot picks at big prices.

Here are the longshot futures bets for the 2024 Copa America.

TRUSTING LA TRICOLOR

While plenty of pundits will be tipping up the likes of Argentina and Brazil to win the latest edition of the Copa America, there could well be some value in taking one of the outsiders here.

Despite only lifting the Copa America trophy once in their history, Colombia could prove to an interesting selections for the upcoming tournament.

La Tricolor have thrived under the managerial guidance of Nestor Lorenzo = who has helped them go on a remarkable 23-game unbeaten run which stretches over the last two years.

They have beaten some big names during that spell – recording victories over the likes of Germany, Spain and Brazil before thumping the USA 5-1 in their warm up friendlies.

Colombia take on Brazil once again in Group D – who are their biggest threats to win the group. The Selecao may possess the talent of Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr and Endrick – but they have failed to fire on occasions as of late.

They drew with the USA in their last warm up game, and they have suffered defeats to Uruguay, Colombia and Argentina in the last 12 months.

Costa Rica have fallen out of their golden era with Joel Campbell being one of their few remaining stars, while Paraguay have not been influential on the international stage in almost 15 years.

That gives Colombia a chance of topping this group, and then having a nice run to the final.

Their likely opponents in their way of success will be Lionel Messi and Argentina – who are the undisputed favourites for this competition.

If Colombia are at their best here, they could spring a surprise result and claim their second Copa America title.

TIP: Copa America 2024 Winner – Colombia (+1400, FanDuel)
TIP: Copa America 2024 Finalists – Argentina + Colombia (+1000, Fanduel)

GOAL FEST

If there’s one thing soccer fans love, it’s a tournament filled with goals.

This bet has proven to be popular for several international tournaments – and it did come in at +6700 for the 2018 World Cup!

The last two Copa America tournaments have seen every team score two goals, so it shows that teams go all for it on the biggest stage.

While the 2016 Centenario tournament saw three teams fail to hit that total of two goals, this tournament is significantly stronger in terms of attacking presence.

Two goals for each team looks achievable here – and at a nice price too.

TIP: Each team to score 2 or more goals in Copa America 2024 (+800, FanDuel)
