The Copa America 2021 has entered its most exciting stages and the grand final is getting close. As expected, Argentina are the favorites in their semi-final matchup against Colombia according to bookmakers. Lionel Messi and his teammates have led La Albiceleste to a strong start and they hope to bring the trophy home.

It's been a long time since they were crowned in Copa America but this time they might have what it takes to live up to the expectations and secure a much-needed title. Therefore, it's no surprise that they are favorites to win this one and get into the final.

Colombia have not performed well so far yet they managed to reach this stage. They have failed to win after Matchday 1 and knocked out Uruguay on penalties to reach the semifinals. Understandably, DraftKings sees Argentina as favorites to remain alive in the tournament.

At -127, Argentina are strong contenders to win and get into the Copa America 2021 final, while Colombia are underdogs at +410. Lionel Messi's side is in much better form and is expected to win, nonetheless, Los Cafeteros shouldn't be underestimated.

Betting on an over of 2.5 would result in an interesting payout at +143. Despite it may seem like a bold move, Argentina already put three past Ecuador in the quarterfinals, proving they are capable of winning comfortably.

Argentina vs Colombia Picks: Goal Scorers

An interesting place to bet is the game's first goalscorer, and Lionel Messi could be a great player to bet on at +360. The Argentine superstar has not only been delivering outstanding performances in Copa America 2021 but is the tournament's leading goalscorer as well.

However, this match could also be tight and hard-fought. Considering it could remain goalless wouldn't sound crazy and it would result in a +650 payout. Meanwhile, going for a Colombian player as the first goal scorer of the game could hand the bettor good earnings. Duvan Zapata could be a smart choice at +800.
