USA-Argentina in Huge Semifinal Clash

United States Lionel Messi Argentina Copa America

In a match that will no doubt have Houston rocking Tuesday night, the United States faces Argentina in the first Copa America semifinal. The USA has played well to get this far, but has what is undoubtedly its toughest opponent on tap in the form of tournament favorite Argentina.

SHARK BITES
  • The previous two meetings between these two have been draws.
  • USA has won six of their last seven matches overall.
  • Argentina is 3W-1D-2L against the USA all time.

Argentina is a big favorite at online shop Bovada, currently priced at -210 in moneyline markets while the USA is +600 and the Draw is +325. Argentina, a one-goal fave in spread betting is currently -125 while the USA is +105 as the dog. Finally, in totals markets, OVER 2.5 goals is -120 while UNDER is Even odds.

The USA won Group A with six points – ahead on goal differential over Colombia – and defeated Ecuador 2-1 in the quarterfinal matchup.

The Stars and Stripes did lose Jermaine Jones to a red card, however, and have appealed the decision in an attempt to retain the midfielder’s services for Tuesday’s contest. They also protested Bobby Wood’s second yellow, which also means he’ll miss the Argentina clash if this decision is upheld.

Argentina, who is the -175 fave to win the tourney, has easily justified the price thus far. They cruised to three wins in three games in the group stage - outscoring their opponents 10-1 – and easily dispatched Venezuela 4-1 in the quarters.
