ARGENTINA kick off Copa America in the early hours of Saturday morning and are dead certs to win.

The hosts are a biggest 1-9 with Stan James to beat Bolivia and a convincing home win looks on the card.

At 1-9 you won't get rich quick son instead consider them at 3-10 (888sport) minus one or 5-6 (Coral) minus two.

Skybet go 8-13 on Argentina to win to nil and it’s 4-6 with Betfred for Lionel Messi to score.

Argentina are expected to bring home the bacon but fierce rivals Brazil could spoil their Copa America party.

The Argentines are hot favourites at 11-10 with totesport but the weight of expectancy could be too heavy on the shoulders of the likes of Messi and Carlos Tevez.

And Brazil, as they gear up to host World Cup 2014, could be ready to take advantage. The samba stars are a best 2-1 with bet365 and could have the edge on the hosts with a solid defence.

Stan James rate Mano Menezes’ troops 2-5 to run out Group B winners and they kick off their campaign against unfancied Venzuela. Brazil are a best 1-5 at Ladbrokes to win and 4-7 with sportingbet to do so by at least two clear goals.

In Group C, Chile and Uruguay battle for favouritism.  They are joint third favourites in the outright market at 12-1. Given their quality in attack it’s the Uruguayans that should come out on top but the Chileans are an exciting young side.

Paraguay are next in the tournament betting at 18-1 with Coral and should reach the quarters behind Brazil in Group B but the surprise package could be Paddy Power’s 33-1 shots Colombia.

With much-wanted Porto hotshot Falcao leading the line they provide an attacking threat and look a steal at 1-2 with William Hill to win their opener against an under-strength Costa Rica.

Argentina v Bolivia is live on ESPN at 1.45am on Saturday. It's also streamed free on bet365.
