We’ll have our expert soccer predictions throughout Copa America as well as EVERY Euro 2024 game, but for now, let’s dive into our 2024 Copa America best bets for Monday, June 24.

Brazil vs Costa Rica best bet: Brazil ML & Under 2.5 goals (+310)

Brazil get their Copa America campaign off and running against Costa Rica in Inglewood tonight and the pressure is already on for the 9-time champions, who have struggled in competitive games recently. They have won just 2 of their 6 World Cup qualifying games so far. Interim head coach Fernando Diniz was relieved of his duties due to Brazil’s poor form and his replacement Dorival Junior has overseen an upturn in fortunes since taking over in January, and we predict things to improve further for them this week. They are unbeaten in 4 exhibition games under Junior with a 1-0 win over England followed by a 3-3 tie with Spain, a 3-2 success over Mexico and a 1-1 tie with the USMNT earlier this month.

Things will need to improve further if they are to win their 10th Copa America crown and they have already seen bitter rivals and tournament favorites Argentina make a winning start to the competition. Brazil have a good record against Costa Rica, having beaten them in each of the last 9 games, while the most recent 3 have also come with shutouts. Therefore, it’s worth taking Brazil to win a low-scoring game at big +310 odds.
