The opening match in Group C will see the United States take on Bolivia on Sunday afternoon at AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas. Head-to-head in eight all-time meetings both teams have defeated each other twice and on four occasions they have shared the points. More recently in their last two encounters USA has comfortably defeated Bolivia totaling seven goals and collecting two clean sheets.

USMNT came into this tournament with some seeds of doubt to make a title run with Gregg Berhalter at the helm. Their first tune-up friendly against Colombia saw them get soundly defeated 5-1. With the panic setting in it wasn’t the mood the Yanks needed heading into their second friendly match against Brazil. The Stars and Stripes managed to collect a draw against the soccer powers calming the nerves of the fans and setting a positive tone heading into the tournament.

Meanwhile Bolivia in the past year has struggled to get the ball rolling, in their last 13 matches they have only managed to pick up two wins. Currently in the FIFA world rankings Bolivia sits as the lowest member in the CONMEBOL region and this whole tournament positioned 85th overall.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favorite picks for the USA vs. Bolivia match.

USA vs. Bolivia Betting Prediction

USA Preview

The United States as the hosting nation in the 2024 Copa America Tournament will have high expectations. The Yanks are no slouches either as they are currently ranked 11th overall in the FIFA rankings and more recently added new silverware to their cabinet capturing the CONCACAF Nations League. Vital pieces such as Christian Pulisic, Giovanni Reyna, and Weston McKennie will be leaned upon to carry the United States deep into the competition.

Captain America aka Christian Pulisic is one of the pivotal players on the U.S. squad. In 36 matches with Serie A giants AC Milan, Pulisic found the back of the net 12 times and collected eight assists in the first season in Italy. Representing his country 56 times and counting, Pulisic has 36 goal contributions including 19 of his 24 goals scored he has managed to register them in open play.

Bolivia Preview

The Copa America hasn’t been accommodating to Bolivia since 1997, where in their last nine showings they have escaped out of the group stage once. Also, in that same span La Verde has struggled to secure wins as they have only collected one victory in the last 29 matches in the tournament. The 1963 Copa America champs are hoping their blend of veterans and youthful players on this squad can help change their fortunes.

Upfront on the attack, the most trustworthy member of the national team is the veteran Rodrigo Cornejo. The 33-year-old has 41 international caps under the belt and has notched seven goals for his country, making him the active current scoring leader internationally for Bolivia.

USA vs. Bolivia - My Pick

The situational spot Bolivia is in could spell trouble throughout the group stage of Copa America, their away performances have been abysmal. La Verde has lost 15 of their last 17 matches away from playing on their home soil. Factor in the Stars and Stripes will have the home faithful backing them, it could be a long 90 minutes on Sunday for Bolivia.

On the other hand, the United States going into this bout has two major beneficial trends, The first is they play solid at home only losing four times in their last 21 affairs on U.S. soil. Second, they don’t often lose to countries ranked outside the top 30, with Bolivia priced at +1600 to pull off the upset in this fixture, it’s likely the Yanks dazzle the crowd by taking on a less inferior opponent winning the opening group match in comfortable fashion.

Bet on USA -1.5 (-167) at bet365
