Opening odds, Final
Argentina vs. Brazil
This is the match-up everyone has been hoping for as we’ll get to see Lionel Messi and Neymar go head-to-head in one last battle before Copa América comes to a close. Although Brazil is favored to win, it could be anybody’s game as both teams are closely matched. Neither side has lost a game in this year’s edition of the tournament, either. Messi leads the pack in offense as he’s notched an impressive six goals and six assists, while Neymar has five goals and five assists as well. In a star-studded game that could very well come down to penalties, the world will be watching this final as it could be a win for either side in the end.
