 The odds heavily favor Argentina to win the Copa America final. The British online betting website Bet365 (new window) offers odds on Argentina at 1.80 (4/5), compared to Brazil 4.33 (10/3), and 3.50 (5/2) for a draw in regular time. Live betting will be available at the bookmaker.

 The classic 3-0 win of Argentina against Mexico at the semi-finals made the bookies bump the odds on the team to win for the 15th time. On Wednesday night goals by Gabriel Heinze, Lionel Messi and Juan Roman Riquelme gave the win to Argentina, sending Mexico home. All eyes will be on these three players again on Sunday night.

 Brazil struggled to reach the final, beating Venezuela at the semi-finals 5-4 on penalty kicks following a 2-2 tie.

 In the past Argentina and Brazil met at the Copa America Final in 2004, and back then Brazil won the Cup by penalty kicks after 2-2 in the normal time. Last year Argentina played against Mexico for the Copa America, winning 2-1.

On Saturday Mexico beat Uruguay 3-1 for the third place at the Copa America.
