Battle Of South American Giants
This year’s tournament boasts the most competitive field of teams for some time and that should lead to a cracking event as the continent of South America looks to recover from the flop of World Cup 2014.
Argentina, who finished runners-up last summer in Brazil, will be firm favourites for the title and it’s not hard to see why as the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria and Carlos Tevez look to fire the Albiceleste to equal Uruguay’s record of 15 titles.
The holders will be looking to Luis Suarez, who was named best player in 2011, to inspire a successful title defence. Host nation Chile, alongside Colombia, will be looking to build on positive World Cup campaigns and could be prominent dark horses.
Meanwhile, Brazil are looking for redemption after that humiliating defeat to Germany last summer. Dunga has done a good job since replacing Phil Scolari as Selecao boss, but this is a step up in quality so it will be interesting to see if the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Douglas Costa can do it on the big international stage.
Whatever happens, it should be a roller coaster ride packed with thrills, spills and plenty of skills. And better still, you can watch and bet on the action live!

Copa America 2015 Betting Tips
It’s set to be a brilliant Copa, not least because there are a good four or five teams with genuine hopes of lifting the title. However, from a betting perspective, that does make choosing a winner quite difficult.
Fans of the Premier League will naturally be eager to see how the various English-based stars do at the tournament and there are a number of brilliant attacking players on show.
Of those, Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez is the one we’re most excited about. The Gunners man is the main hope for his side, who will also fancy to enjoy a very successful group stage. Considering Sanchez played competitive football more recently than the other Premiership stars, courtesy of last month’s FA Cup final, we think he could be a great shout to outscore his rivals on home turf.

One of the most exciting stories will be to see how Dunga’s Brazil perform. The Selecao have impressed since the former World Cup-winning captain took charge for the second time, but the nightmares of 2014 must still haunt them.
There is quality in this side, though, and captain Neymar is certainly the flag bearer. After clinching the treble with club side Barcelona, we expect him to continue his incredible international record with a few goals in Chile. He will face competition from clubmates Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, but at 13/2, we think he’s great value for the golden boot.
