* odds as of 4/15/24

The group stage runs through July 2, with the quarterfinals taking place July 4-6.

Doug McIntyre's prediction for the tournament winner

"It won’t be easy for Argentina to repeat Spain’s feat from earlier this century and sandwich its World Cup win between a pair of continental crowns. But the Albiceleste is more than capable of doing so, even though Lionel Messi turns 37 four days after his country kicks off the 16-team event, and despite the stiff challenge they could face from a Uruguay team that recently handed Messi & Co. their first loss since becoming world champs. 

"Another reason Argentina is the prohibitive favorite? Brazil, which Argentina beat to win the Copa América in 2021, is in dreadful form with USA 2024 now less than six months away." 

PICK: Argentina (+200) to win Copa América 2024

McIntyre's insights on USMNT Group C matches

USMNT vs. Bolivia, June 23, Arlington, Texas

"There will still be considerable pressure on the U.S. in its curtain-raiser at the Dallas Cowboys' home stadium. Anything less than three points for coach Gregg Berhalter's team would make its second match a must-win game ahead of the group finale against Uruguay."

USMNT vs. Panama, June 27, Atlanta

"In front of what could be a heavily pro-USMNT crowd in Atlanta, the 12th-ranked U.S. should be able to handle FIFA's No. 41 team in theory. In practice, Los Canaleros have for years been a thorn in the Americans' side, particularly in tournament play.

"While the USMNT holds a 17W-2L-7T advantage all-time, Panama beat the U.S. during the last World Cup qualifying cycle. They also eliminated the hosts from two of the last five Gold Cups, including in 2023."

USMNT vs. Uruguay, July 1, Kansas City, Mo.

"The USMNT must wait until its final Group C match to take on one of South America's best. Uruguay certainly is that. La Celeste has been a revelation under new manager Marcelo Bielsa, who took over after Uruguay's disappointing showing at last year's World Cup. 

"Last month, Balsa's team handed Argentina a 2-0 World Cup qualifying loss at the famed Bombonera Stadium in Buenos Aires — the first defeat for Messi & Co. as world champs."
