Only 4 days remain in Africa’s biggest football tournament. Here are some of the betting favorites to win the Africa Cup of Nations.

2017 Africa Cup of Nations Betting Odds
- Egypt: 3.00
- Ghana: 9/4
- Cameroon: 3/1
- Burkina Faso: 4/1
They were matched up with fellow North African team Morocco in the first game of the knockout stage and won the closely contested match 1-0. They take on Burkina Faso, one of the biggest Africa Cup of Nations underdogs next, and with a win will find themselves in the finals. With Bet365 odds of 3.00, Egypt is currently at the top in the list of betting favorites to win the Africa Cup of Nations.
Ghana has been one of the best African football nations for years, and be looking to capture their 5th Africa Cup of Nations trophy with 2 more wins. They bounced back from a loss to Egypt with an impressive victory over the DR Congo in the knockout group, and are now inching towards the top of the Africa Cup of Nations betting odds according to all online sportsbooks in the UK.
The upcoming game against Cameroon is one of the most anticipated of the whole tournament. Both teams are extremely talented, and the winner may end up as the tournament champions. Ghana’s odds to win the Africa Cup of Nations sit at 9/4.
After just 1 win and 2 draws in the ACON group stage, not many football betting experts predicted Cameroon would win the tournament. They earned their spot in the knockout stage, and won a dead-even game against rivals Senegal in the shootout.
Burkina Faso: 4/1
Burkina Faso have the chance to make the Africa Cup of Nations finals for just the second time in their history. Their team may lack some of the star players that Ghana and Cameroon have, but they still have a solid shot to win.
They are taking on one of the betting favorites to win the Africa Cup of Nations next, and if victorious, may becoming one of the ACON favorites themselves. Burkina Faso’s odds to win the Africa Cup of Nations are currently set at 4/1.
