What are the best top Goalscorer odds for Copa America Centenario?

Before you bet on sports it’s a good idea to look at past events, and the recent winners of Top Scorer at Copa America competitions makes for interesting reading. Peruvian Paolo Guerrero has topped the charts in the past two competitions, last time sharing it with Chilean (copa winner) Eduardo Vargas.

Outsiders:

  • Sanchez @ 15.00
  • Hernandez @ 21.00
  • Bacca @ 21.00
  • Gabriel @ 34.00
  • While world famous players have the lowest odds at online sportsbooks in the UK, it’s worth checking out some lesser known names. Last time it only took 4 goals to top the charts, and only 5 the year before that. Only once in the past 50 years has somebody – Adriano in 2004 – scored 7 goals in a Copa tournament. This means that the top goalscorer crown can be effectively sealed by a very strong performance in the groups. So, when checking out top goalscorer odds for Copa, it’s important to look at the early fixtures.

    Main Contenders:

    • Messi @ 6.00
    • Aguero @ 7.00
    • Higuain @ 9.00
    • Cavani @ 12.00

    Both Brazil and Argentina have fairly weak groups: this means the odds of world class forwards like Messi, Aguero and Higuain are fairly low. Messi didn’t even score in the last tournament, so he might not deserve his status as favourite. Higuain, though, has been scoring more than ever: he is the best candidate from Argentina. Brazil is a more interesting case, as they are missing leading scorer Neymar. This could be the moment for young striker Gabriel to shine. The Santos 19 year-old is wanted by clubs all over Europe and scored on his debut for Brazil.

    At online sportsbooks in the US, Uruguay may not be as strongly fancied with the absence through injury of Luis Suarez. However, this could make Edinson Cavani are far better bet for top goalscorer. He has scored 25 goals this season, and will be the leading man in Suarez’s absence. Abel Hernandez may play, and he’s scored plenty this season: however, his form has come in the English Championship so can’t truly be replied upon.

    In addition to group stage results, for Top Goalscorer odds for Copa make sure your chosen pick will be leading the line. Javier Hernandez is the leading striker for Mexico, and he’ll certainly look to score against Jamaica and Venezuela. His incredible form for Bayer Leverkusen this season makes him a good bet. Alexis Sanchez of Chile can’t be written off either, but even when Chile won in 2015 he wasn’t top scorer. So, along with his less-than-sensational form for Arsenal, he isn’t worth the risk.
