With all the hype surrounding the Euro2016 tournament it is easy to forget that there is another big competition going on in America at the same time. The Copa America celebrates it’s 100th anniversary and Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez will be hoping to retain the trophy for the first time in Chile’s history. The Premier League may be over but we certainly won’t be short of games concerning Arsenal players for the next month or so….
So everyone in Europe and America are having their early warm up games this week, and I think I may have an accumulator bet on all the teams with Arsenal players in it to win it! To start with on Friday we have Petr Cech lining up for the Czechs against minnows Malta. Obviously the Czechs are a short-priced 3/25 to win but should bag a hatful. Maybe even Tomas Rosicky may get a run out to prove his fitness as well…
Also on Friday, England and Jack Wilshere are 1/4 to beat the Aussies, and then very early on Saturday morning (1.30 am UK time) Alexis and Chile are 1/5 to beat Jamaica. Joel Campbell could be out with Costa Rica a couple of hours later and they are 13/20 to beat Venezuela.
On Sunday night, Ozil and Germany are at home to Slovakia and are 3/10 to take the win, and they are followed by Giroud and Koscielny playing for France against Cameroon in the Stade De France.
All these look like easy home wins for our Arsenal players so I will be doing my accumulator and following their progress on GUTS.com. Now this is why online sports betting is better than land based betting shops because I can bet from home and can get instant updates on the games at any time, especially for the games in the middle of the night from the Copa America matches and warm ups.
Chile’s first game is against Argentina so will give us a good indication if Alexis Sanchez’s side are still in confident mood after last years victory. This game is being played at 3 am UK time, so it looks like I am going to getting an early alarm call on June 7th. Come on Alexis!
