USA – Bolivia betting tip, prediction & odds 24.06.2024

USA – Bolivia betting tip

The power density in North and South America is not high enough to organize an intercontinental tournament competition with 24 teams on roughly the same level as in Europe.

Nevertheless, the comparatively smaller Copa America 2024 should be no less exciting than the European Championship currently taking place on the Old Continent.

In any case, the host nation’s opener should be a complete success. According to my USA Bolivia betting tip, anything other than a clear victory for the Soccer Boys would be a huge surprise

It is still hotly debated whether Gregg Berhalter should have been allowed to continue coaching the US boys after all the scandals.

In addition, the European Championship betting providers in Europe have also caught wind of the fact that the USA’s recent international appearances have not exactly produced satisfactory results.

However, after carefully weighing up all the data available to me, I stand by my USA Bolivia prediction, which was already made long before the start of the tournament: anything other than a win for the hosts would be almost scandalous.

The prediction of the bookmakers?

With their USA Bolivia odds, the sports betting providers are making no secret of the fact that the hosts should have little or nothing to lose here.

In any case, you can expect USA odds of around 1.20 for an opening three-pointer, which represents a probability of around 83%.

Personally, I would put this percentage even higher, as the performance gap between the two nations is huge.

Accordingly, if the underdog is successful, you will get 15 euros back on the betting markets for every euro you stake!

Analysis: USA vs. Bolivia

The USA have had some less than satisfactory results in the weeks leading up to the tournament, and there’s no sugar-coating it.

It seems to be more important for Gregg Berhalter that his team continues to grow in the run-up to the 2026 World Cup so that it can then reach its full potential.

Nonetheless, a crushing 5-1 defeat like the one his boys suffered against Colombia in a test match in the second week of June weighs heavily on the team’s morale.

However, the US team were able to sell themselves much better in the following game against Brazil.

Even though the Brazilians had a clear advantage in terms of playing time, the North Americans at least managed to salvage a 1:1 draw, which should have restored their self-confidence to a certain extent.

When we look at the current Copa America betting odds together, it quickly becomes clear that the bookmakers prefer other nations to the US boys. My personal favorite, by the way, is Uruguay.

Nonetheless, my USA Bolivia betting tip is all about the outcome of the opening game, and in this respect I simply can’t imagine anything other than a clear victory for the hosts.

Gregg Berhalter has the option of fielding a starting line-up made up entirely of players from Europe’s top five leagues, including Christian Pulisic (Milan) and Yunus Musah (Milan).

Quota analysis

My thoughts on this game clearly revolve around a 3-0 or possibly even 4-0 win for the Americans.

All related USA Bolivia bets are therefore welcome and with regard to the odds, I can also give you a thumbs up.

This applies in particular to the betting offer of the bookmaker Oddset for the events USA wins with HC -1 or HC -2, which are currently being traded at odds of 1.60 and 2.55.

Depending on how high your individual risk appetite is, you can opt for one of these two special bets.

Bankruptcy and breakdown bulls

The headline is of course a little exaggerated, but should remind you that the Bolivians are actually always in last place in almost all rankings in South America.

Ten of the last twelve international matches were lost, sometimes with high scores such as 1:5 against Brazil in the fall of 2023 or a 0:3 against Colombia a few days ago.

Two games were won in this period, but Andorra (1-0) and Peru (2-0) were not exactly nations that I would consider to be successful endurance tests for a clash with the USA

USA with a similar home bonus to the Germans!

If the circumstances were different, I wouldn’t be so optimistic about the US boys sweeping the Bolivians.

But the game is taking place in Arlington, Texas – and the anticipation among US soccer fans is simply huge!

We have already seen what the “home advantage” can unleash in the opening game of the European Championship taking place overseas, when the DFB team swept away the courageously fighting Scots like a hurricane with a 5:1 victory

In fact, there has already been one Copa America duel between the two nations, which dates back to a time when the great expansionist MLS policy had not yet got underway and “soccer” still had a niche existence in the States: 1995.

However, this 1-0 Bolivian victory was followed by two test matches in 2016 and 2018, which ended with results in favor of the North Americans that I can very well imagine happening on Monday (3-0, 4-0).

In this context, it is interesting to note that in the last joint showdown in 2018, the starting midfield of the US team, which was already considered young at the time, consisted of Pulisic, Weah and McKennie.

Thus, this squad has had plenty of time to grow together over the years. Over the last few years, some extremely talented players such as Yunus Musah have also come on board.

Incidentally: Timothy Weah scored the 3:0 against Bolivia in 2018. The bookmaker Betano is rewarding a goal from George Weah’s son against the South Americans with odds of around 2.20 on Monday night.

This is an offer that I wouldn’t turn up my nose at, given the abundance of US goals I’m expecting anyway.

My USA Bolivia tip:

The USA will be cheered on by the home fans on Monday in a similar way to the Germans against Scotland.

Bolivia are also considered the weakest South American nation and have put in some extremely poor performances in recent June test matches.

Last but not least, the USA are clearly superior in all positions and will be highly motivated to make amends for their recent humiliation against Colombia in their Copa America opener.

My USA Bolivia prediction: The Stars & Stripes win with HC -1.
