Brasil 2019 - Copa America - Bet on it! This year's Copa America will take place in Brazil at a total of 6 venues and in 5 different host cities.

Brazil, as the host city, is being given the big edge to win by the sports books, despite the fact that Chile is the two-time defending champion.

There are a total of 12 teams in this tournament that span two different federations. You have your traditional South American teams from CONMEBOL, as well as two invited clubs from the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) - Japan and Qatar. Qatar is looking for all of the experience that it can get in bigger tournaments, as they will be hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Here are the three groups - the top two teams automatically advance to the next round, while the 3rd place team in each group can potentially advance to a knockout stage game:

Group A

Brazil
Bolivia
Venezuela
Peru

Group B

Argentina
Columbia
Paraguay
Qatar

Group C

Uruguay
Ecuador
Japan
Chile

The final game of this tournament will take place at Rio de Janeiro on July 7th. According to the bookmakers, Brazil is expected to be there.
