Argentina vs. Canada best bet

  • Pick: Argentina and under 3.5 goals
  • Odds: -115 (BetMGM)

Taking strictly the moneyline on Argentina is incredibly poor value, so combining the under on 3.5 goals can help you get near positive odds. 

Argentina have kept three clean sheets at this tournament so far and are yet to score over two goals in a game.

Canada are also a side struggling to find the back of the net, having scored only two goals in four games.


Argentina vs. Canada prop bet

  • Pick: Lautaro Martinez anytime goalscorer
  • Odds: +115 (BetMGM)

Lautaro Martinez was on fire in the group stages for Argentina and currently leads the tournament with four goals to his name. 

He’s also been playing alongside Messi as the two strikers up top, helping him see more chances and opportunities to get his name on the scoresheet. 

  • Pick: Alexis Mac Allister to score or assist a goal
  • Odds: +250 (FanDuel)

The Liverpool man has two assists in four games at the Copa America this year and against Canada in the group-stage match found plenty of room in between the defense and the midfield, allowing him to roam free and unmarked.

He’s also coming off the back of an exceptional debut season at Anfield, where he’s proved to be a constant threat when going forward.
