The USMNT is back in action in the 2024 Copa America on Thursday, June 27, as they prepare to build on their opening-round win over Bolivia and this time take on Panama. Panama vs USA is scheduled to kick off at 6:00 pm ET and will air live on FOX, while immediately following that matchup we have more Group C action with Uruguay vs Bolivia at 9:00 pm ET also on FOX. 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 Thursday.

Panama vs USA best bet: USA Win in Shutout (+105)

The USMNT battles face Panama in the second round of Copa America group games on Thursday and a win would secure qualification for USA. And the host nation should be able to make the most of this opportunity against a Panama team that has lost 4 of its last 6 games. The USMNT registered a shutout against Bolivia in their opening game and their defense should be enough to contain Panama, who have drawn blanks in 3 of their last 5 games and managed only a last-minute goal in garbage time when losing 3-1 to Uruguay last time.

Uruguay vs Bolivia best bet: Uruguay Win in Shutout (-145)

Uruguay started their Copa America campaign with a 3-1 win over Panama and they can get another 3 points on the board against Bolivia at MetLife Stadium. Bolivia endured a 2-0 defeat to tournament hosts United States in their Copa America opener and are famously bad away from the high-altitude arena of Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz. They have lost their last 4 games, conceding 9 times and scoring just once. They now face a Uruguay team that has won 5 of their last 8 games, registering a shutout in 4 of those victories.
