Our Copa America standings page is a stellar way to start your research for betting. It features several great metrics to give you an idea of how well each team is doing.

The standings show the top two from every group in one Copa America league table, which allows you to compare teams and figure out the probable favourites right from the start.

Here’s what you can see:

  • List Icon

    Games played, wins, draws, and losses

  • List Icon

    Goals for, goals against, and goal difference

  • List Icon

    Points from a team's respective group

The true star of the show is the form guide, which displays the results of the last five matches. This is perfect in such a short-form tournament, so make sure to check this out when you’re betting on the Copa America.

One of the highlights of our Copa America tables is the player stats. With over 22 metrics and dozens of sub-metrics — from goals and assists to dribbles, key passes and tackles, there is something for every part of the action.

However, with all this at your fingertips, you’ll need to know how to use it. Firstly, navigate through the various statistics and look for data that might stand out. For example, in 2021, Lionel Messi created three goals and two assists in the group stage alone — numbers like that are worth punting on for individual matches or outrights. Apart from single bets, these stats are also excellent for bet builders.

Copa America Top Scorers

Betting on the top scorer is always a fun market; but with some of the very best players in the world, predicting the Copa America top scorers might be tough. 

That’s where our football stats come in handy! Head to the player statistics and toggle to the goals metric. You’ll then be able to compare several metrics, including shots, pens, or assists to figure out who’s likely to score more often.

Historical data can also be helpful. Numbers don’t lie and looking at the previous tournaments' top scorers could be an indication to whether they’ll repeat their feat.

Copa America Assist Leaders

Assists — a classic betting market with great odds and an air of unpredictability that top goal scorer betting just doesn’t have. How can you make the most out of it? Firstly, checking out the player section and toggling to assists will give you some excellent metrics to understand who to bet on.

Another good way to find useful insights is to look through the stats from the past. Specifically, you can look at the players that topped the assists on each of the last tournaments:

Form plays a massive role in major tournaments, so another set of statistics which we suggest considering is the domestic goal involvement for the top players from South America. Julian Alvarez reached 11 goals and 10 assists, while Darwin Nunez hit 11 goals and eight assists. Both are entering the competition at their very best.

It’s important to remember that some players might perform much better or much worse internationally. Take Harry Maguire, who always plays well for England but had an irregular season with Man United, or Lautaro Martinez, who had a terrible world Cup but was a star man at Inter.

One other metric from the past which could be great for Copa America 2024 betting is looking at the all-time stats. If there are players there that are still active, they might be worth punting on.

We’ve got not one, but two tables that are tailor-made for team statistics. While both are very useful to punters, their focus is slightly different, so we suggest comparing them to see which one holds most value for you.

Team Stats Table

If you’re a statistics head, this is perfect for you! It’s all about the numbers, providing the totals for all the metrics available. Want to know which team got the most yellow cards in Copa America? This is where you’ll find it. With 17 metrics and dozens of sub metrics, the table is as in-depth as they get.

Here are a couple of examples:

  • List Icon

    Cards: If two teams have already received many cards, the match between them will likely be filled with occurrences. Last edition’s top two-carded teams Argentina (19) and Colombia (18) met in the semi-finals — the match saw 10 yellow cards. On the other hand, Uruguay only saw four cards during the whole tournament. Betting on cards could be ideal.

  • List Icon

    Half-time goals: In general, most goals are scored in the second half. The last Copa America saw 29 goals during first half, and 36 goals during the second. Looking further into it, Argentina scored a massive nine first-half goals, but only three second-half goals. Therefore, a bet on Argentina to score in, or win, the first half could be ideal. Brazil was the exact opposite with only four goals scored during the first half, but eight scored during the second half.

Betting Stats Table

More interested in the betting side of team statistics? This table serves as an in-depth look into the competition, featuring over 20 metrics and lots of sub-metrics for each. These parameters are all focused on betting, for example, instead of total cards, you’ll find over 2.5 cards, and the percentage of times that a team has had it in a match.

While being brilliant for accumulators, the stats are useful for gathering valuable data from specific metrics. These are a few of our top choices:

  • List Icon

    To win either half — In high-stakes matches, leads can be lost and won in an instant, so winning either half could be a great market to try.

  • List Icon

    Corner betting — Similar to the previous one, corner markets are becoming increasingly popular and have some great value. Last competition saw a 100% record for over 9.5 corners from Ecuador.

  • List Icon

    Multi-goal betting — This involves predicting the range of goals to be scored in a match. The last three Copa America editions averaged over 2.3 goals per match.

With 16 teams competing in a month-long tournament, Copa America fixtures come hard and fast, and you’ll need a way to keep up. Not to worry, the fixtures tab has it all.

Firstly, you can toggle by round and date to keep as informed as possible. You can also check the Copa America schedules by pressing the right arrow or check out the results by using the left arrow.

The best feature is the betting odds. You can find the best odds for outright match markets, meaning that you'll get the best betting options available.

The importance of using statistics while betting on such a major tournament is staggering. Analysing Copa America stats allow you to make more informed and strategic decisions by highlighting key trends and patterns. Detailed metrics, including our player stats, team stats, or form guides, will provide a deeper understanding of potential match outcomes.

Author Tip

If you know that Argentina is creating the most chances by far, you can predict that they’ll have more goals, assists, shots, or corners — which are all great for betting. Stats can give you much better insights and create opportunities to find diamonds in the rough.   

Data-Driven Betting Decisions

When it comes to decision-making, you can get an inside look at the patterns and trends in Copa America that may not be immediately obvious. This data-driven approach helps in understanding team performance, player form, and head-to-head records, leading to more informed betting decisions.

This is especially useful when forecasting match outcomes, as you can use the information you’ve collected to compare teams. During international tournaments, particularly in early rounds, matches tend to be more predictable, enabling stats to provide you a greater edge.

Spot Undervalued Betting Opportunities

The Copa America finals are a great place to spot some betting opportunities, but how can you find them? This is all about getting the best out of your bookies. Imagine that an underdog team is on form, but a bookmaker still gives them high odds — you could capitalise on this and get a better bang for your well-researched buck.

Another way you could go about finding value is looking out for bet boosts offered by bookmakers, and then researching the metrics related to those boosts. If they’re worth betting on, you’ve just found a hidden gem.

The Copa America is the oldest continental football competition in the world and began all the way back in 1916. Throughout the 100+ years of history, there have been countless changes and improvements. The tournament started with a four-team round-robin, before evolving to the classic group and knockout format we see today.

Usually, the competition occurs every four years, but this sometimes fluctuates. The number of teams is also constantly changing, as CONMEBOL regularly invites teams from other confederations. The minimum number of participants is 10 — every country in South America, plus two extra teams that are often added.

The South American crown is hotly contested, and the trophy has seen eight different winners. Apart from the invited nations, Ecuador and Venezuela have never finished in the top three. Other notable performances include Mexico, finishing second twice as a guest, and Honduras, who placed third once.

It’s the second time that 16 teams are featured after the 100-year edition, in 2016. In addition to the regular 10 participants, six nations from the CONCACAF were invited to the 2024 tournament.

The Copa America stats page could be your key to unlocking even more success when betting. With comprehensive and superbly useful data, the extra research can be the difference between winning and losing a punt, so use it well!

The Copa America takes place every four years. The next competition will start on the 20th of June 2024, in the USA.

It’s a tie between Uruguay and Argentina, both on 15. Brazil is third with nine. Argentina are the current favourites, and they can overtake their Uruguayan rivals.

No. Messi shares the 7th position with Norberto Méndez and Zizinho, with 17 goals apiece. Messi could overtake them if he has an inspired run.

Argentina is dominating here; they’ve won 15 Copa America finals, whereas Brazil has only managed nine.

There are several ways to do so, and we have outlined them in this article. The best ways are to find some patterns in the stats, which could give you further insight into making bets.
