Copa America 2021 concludes with Argentina and Brazil facing off in the dream final for the competition. Lionel Messi and Neymar go head-to-head as the Argentine star looks to capture an elusive international trophy while Brazil’s main man hopes to repeat as a Copa America champion. The hosts are favored in the match and should get Gabriel Jesus back after his suspension.

Here’s how the public is betting on Saturday’s final courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Saturday, July 10 betting splits

Argentina vs. Brazil

Argentina (+275): 54% handle, 44% bets
Tie (+220): 10% handle, 16% bets
Brazil (+110): 37% handle, 40% bets

Argentina is getting more money likely due to the value at +275. Messi and Lautaro Martinez lead a talented unit into the final and should be lesser underdogs than the line suggests. While the handle is leaning Argentina’s way at 54 percent, the number of bets coming in both sides are close at 44 percent for Argentina and 40 percent for Brazil. This is a classic rivalry matchup between two top teams, so even splits among bettors should be expected.
