The expanded 16-team Copa America will begin with tonight's matchup between Argentina and Canada.

Argentina is the defending champions and will have Lionel Messi on their squad for the tournament. Ultimately, this could be one of Messi's final times putting on an Argentina jersey for his career. He'll turn 37 during the Copa America and hasn't really talked about his plans for the future.

Either way, coach Lionel Scaloni told fans through the media to not worry about the future and just enjoy the now.

Messi has made 140 apperances with the national team and has helped Argentina win multiple major tournaments including the 2021 Copa America and 2022 World Cup.

Let's see if Argentina can start off this tournament with more success.

Take a look at the Argentina vs. Canada odds and betting data below.

Argentina vs. Canada Odds and Betting Data

Argentina Win-36078.26%
Canada Win+10009.09

Argentina has a 78.26% chance of defeating Canada tonight with a -360 price tag. Meanwhile, Canada doesn't even have a 10% chance of winning, with odds of +1000.

Finally, a draw is more likely than Canada winning outright. A draw is projected to happen 17.86% of the time, with +460 odds.

Argentina vs. Canada Prediction

Argentina is known for its offensive gems, but the defense probably doesn't get enough credit.

When qualifying for the South American World Cup in 2023, Argentina gave up just .30 goals per 90 minutes. Argentina allowed two goals to Uruguay, but it didn't allow many created chances from Uruguay or any other team during that tie.

Therefore, it'd be shocking to see Canada even find the back of the net tonight. You can get Canada to score no goals at -145.
