The 2021 Argentine Copa de la Liga Profesional Playoffs continue this week with clashes on Monday, May 31, 2021. These two Semi-Finals matchups pit four soccer clubs with very different histories against each other. In the first one, Racing Club will come against Boca Juniors, while Colon will face Independiente in the second game.

The Academy had to get past Velez Sarsfield to get to this stage, and the Blue and Gold have set up a meeting with Racing in the semis thanks to a victory over River Plate in the Quarter-Finals. Meanwhile, Independiente beat Guabira in the previous phase of the Playoffs, and Talleres Cordoba failed to stop Colon from entering the Semi-Final.

This stage provides an opportunity for the bettor to play around with parlays, picks in the over/under, or goalscorers. Here are some betting predictions to consider when placing a bet on these Copa de la Liga Profesional Semi-Finals matchups.

Racing Club had to get past Velez Sarsfield 1-0 to get to the Argentine Copa de la Liga Profesional Playoffs 2021 Semi-Finals. On the other side, Boca Juniors have set up a meeting with Racing in the Semi-Finals thanks to a thrilling 2-1 victory over River Plate in the Quarter-Finals. All odds are in favor of the Genoese. DraftKings see them as the firm favorites and thus, they have given them -104 odds to progress to the 2021 Argentine Copa de la Liga Profesional Final. Racing Club, meanwhile, have +300 odds to cause an upset and go to the grand final, while a tie would result in a +205 payout. 

Considering the fact that Boca are the reigning Argentine champions, it would be unlikely not to see them play in another final. Thus, betting that the game ends in a 2-1 win for the La Boca side could be a sure bet, at +850, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $850. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Carlos Tevez, as he is at +510 to be the first one to score.
