Betting on COPA America 2011 - Chile v Mexico

When it comes to betting on COPA America 2011 in the early stages, Chile v Mexico appeared to be a competitive matchup but there is turmoil on the Mexico side.  Eight players from Mexico's team for the Copa America were suspended Tuesday for six months for violating team training rules.  Copa América Apuestas

Chile v Mexico had odds that favored Chile only slightly at 4/7 while Mexico promised a lucrative payout potential of US$400 on a US$100 bet or US$40 on a US$10 bet.

US gamblers could still get a good price on Chile under these circumstances at Bookmaker, which had them listed at -157 Tuesday 2 pm ET.

Expect Chile to have much less favorable odds in the coming days, so lock in the current price now if you still can.

The players named as part of the suspensions include: Israel Jimenez, Nestor Vidrio, Jonathan Dos Santos, Marco Fabian, Jorge Hernandez, Javier Cortes, David Cabrera and Nestor Calderon.

Mexico also will be without stars such as Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
