Argentina put in their first solid performance of his year’s Copa America last time out, beating invitees Costa Rica 3-0.
Despite that result coming on the back of two lacklustre draws against Colombia and Bolivia, the hosts are odds-on favourites to pick up speed and put Uruguay to the sword in the quarterfinals.
bwin prices La Albiceleste at 3/5 to get the win they need to remain in contention to win the cup for the first time since 1993, while Uruguay, who last lifted the Copa America in 1995, are seen as 9/2 outsiders.
Fans expecting the game to require extra time or even penalties could be tempted to back the game ending in a draw after 90 minutes at odds of 53/20.
While Sergio Batista’s men regained some form with their three-goal drubbing of Costa Rica, fans are still waiting for the hosts’ impressive front line to come to life.
Sergio Aguero is leading the scoring charts with three goals from as many games, while Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, want-away Manchester City star Carlos Tevez and Real Madrid ace Gonzalo Higuain have so far failed to live up to their pre-tournament hype.
However, these players are likely to come alive in the latter stages of the competition and with Luis Suarez, Diego Forlan and Sebastian Abreu looking to fire the Charruas to glory fans, could be tempted to back a high number of goals.
bwin has extended its usual goal bet market in anticipation of a free-flowing game and football betting fans can back a wide number of goal options.
Zero, one, two and three goals exactly are priced at 27/4, 17/5, 5/2 and13/4 respectively, while four goals (21/4) and five goals (10/1) are also options.
In addition to this, bwin has offered odds on exactly six goals at 25/1, exactly seven goals at 50/1 and eight or more converted efforts at 80/1.
Fans wondering why such odds are being offered should bear in mind that two of the last five games between these sides have finished with Argentina running out 4-2 winners.
