Chile Vs. Peru Copa America 2019 Betting Preview
What a surprise is to see Peru at this stage in the 2019 Copa America. The Peruvians are one win away from getting to the tournament’s final. But they will show up to their semifinal meeting against Chile as big underdogs in the odds for this matchup. Let’s just say not many had Peru reaching the Copa America semifinal. After getting slammed by Brazil 5-0 in their last meeting of the group stage, it was safe to say, the Peruvians were expected to lose against Uruguay in quarterfinals.
Chile Vs. Peru Betting Odds
|-0.5 (-117)||Spread||+0.5 (-112)|
|Over 2 goals (-116)||Totals||Over 2 goals (-114)|
Yet, Peru buckled up and played a terrific defensive matchup forcing the result to the penalties. Then, it happened that Barcelona striker Luis Suarez missed his penalty and here we are. The Peruvians are now +800 to win the Copa America as the longest shot from the remaining four teams in the competition. Peru is the weakest side out of the four still alive. Brazil and Argentina will meet in the other semifinal while Chile is the current champion of the tournament. That’s why is no surprise the +800 odds are only giving the Peruvians an 11% of implied probability to win the Copa.
Chile, on the other side, is having a love affair with the Copa America and the fans don’t want it to end. The Chileans won the Cup in 2015 and 2016, both times beating Lionel Messi’s Argentina in the final. Now, here they are again, just two wins away from a third consecutive title. Against Colombia in the quarterfinals, they were slight underdogs coming into the game. Yet, the Chileans played better, and the penalties kicks went their way once again. You can tell the team feels very comfortable in this competition and plays aggressive soccer than just confuses any opponent.
Chile is listed +400 at MyBookie.ag to win their third straight Copa America title. That play has a 20% chance probability of being the winning bet. With Argentina and Brazil still alive, it’s very likely the Chileans will be underdogs against either of those teams in the final. The good news if they will avoid one of the two, making their road to title a bit easier. For this semifinal matchup against Peru, Chile is -114 in the money line odds at MyBookie. It’s a low price for a team that has played better than their opponent over the past three weeks.
The bet as a 53% implied probability out of the three possible outcomes. In soccer, we have to include the possibility of a draw and a winner coming out of the penalties. This game should be decided by one-score difference. The people making the odds put the game total to just two goals when it is usually at 2.5. There are no expectations of a high scoring matchup between these two teams. Either way, I’m taking Chile to reach a third straight Copa America final by winning this semifinal game.
