Best Copa America top goalscorer odds

The favourite: Messi (+300)

Unsurprisingly, Messi is the favourite to win the Golden Boot at this summer's Copa America.

At the 2022 World Cup, he finished second in the race behind France's Mpabbe who he won't have to worry about in this tournament.

The man who many call the greatest of all time has scored 108 goals in 180 caps for his country. If Argentina goes deep, Messi will be a top contributor.

Although he's 36 years old, the eight-time Ballon d'Or winner shows little sign of slowing down.

He's bagged 12 goals in 12 starts for his MLS club, Inter Miami, this season and has plenty left to offer on the international stage.

Expect one last push for a second career Copa America trophy for the Argentine.

Other Copa America top goalscorer choices

Best value: Endrick (+2,200)

This is a lot of stock to be putting on a 17-year-old playing for a squad as deep as Brazil but Endrick has earned the hype.

Pending a move to Real Madrid this summer, the teenager has already shown he can handle the pressure on the big stage.

In early April, Endrick came off the bench to score the game-winning goal in a 1-0 win over England. It was the Three Lions' first loss since the World Cup.

Enner Valencia+5,000
Eduardo Vargas+5,000
Johnathan David+5,000
Timothy Weah+5,000
Christian Pulisic+5,000
Cyle Larin+6,600
Jordy Caicedo+7,000
Frederico Valverde+7,000
Gianluca Lapadula+8,000
Alexis Sanchez+8,000
Jhon Cordoba+8,000

In his four caps for Brazil, he's scored two goals and could have a coming-out party at this year's Copa America.

He is projected to be in the starting lineup and if that's the case, expect him to shine around world-class playmakers.

Top goalscorer notes

  • Vinicius Junoir is second on the odds board. The 23-year-old has just three goals in 27 appearances for Brazil. However, he scored 15 goals in 26 games for his club, Real Madrid this past season. It marked a career-best goal-per-game ratio(0.58) for the young Brazillian.
  • Darwin Nunez turns his game to the next level when playing for Uruguay. The 24-year-old striker has had eight goals in seven games for his country since the start of 2023. That includes a hat trick in his one appearance of 2024.
  • Julian Alvarez tied for third at the 2022 World Cup with four goals. However, he has been kept off the score sheet in the nine games he has played for Argentina since. He's still a dangerous striker, scoring 11 goals in 36 appearances for Manchester City during the Premier League Season.
