And then there were four. The Copa America Centenario has reached the semifinals, and as it turns out, the four remaining teams were among the top five on the Centenario futures market going into the tournament. Only Brazil (+450) failed to make it this far. Here are teams who did, with their original Copa odds and their updated odds at press time.

Argentina (+185; –175)
Chile (+700; +325)
United States (+800; +800)
Colombia (+900; +500)

There weren't any major surprises in the quarter-finals, unless you include the severe beating that Mexico (+150) took at the hands of Chile (+190) when they met Saturday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. La Roja scored twice in the first half, then took full advantage of Mexico's 4-2-3-1 formation in the second half, eventually winning 7-0. Eduardo Vargas scored four times to take the lead for the Golden Boot with six goals thus far.

In second place with four goals is Lionel Messi, who scored for Argentina (–450) in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Venezuela (+1400). With a maximum of two matches remaining, it'll be tough for Messi or anyone else to catch up with Vargas. Clint Dempsey has three goals for the United States after scoring the opener for the USMNT (+160) in Thursday's 2-1 win over Ecuador (+165). Meanwhile, no goals were scored in Friday's match between Peru (+475) and Colombia (–175). They went to penalties, with Colombia prevailing 4-2.


If Dempsey can weave his magic again this Tuesday (9 PM ET, FS1) at the NRG Stadium in Houston, it will be a notable accomplishment. The USMNT face Messi and Argentina in the semifinals; at press time, La Albiceleste are –220 favorites, with the US at +650 and the draw priced at +330. These two sides haven't met very often, but their last Copa America match was a 4-1 win for Argentina back in 2007.

The other semi-final, this Wednesday (8 PM ET, FS1) at Soldier Field, figures to be much closer. Chile, the defending Copa champions, are favored at +150, not too far ahead of Colombia at +195 and the draw at +215. In theory, Chile could be overvalued here after dumping seven goals on a quality Mexico squad. Another goalless draw from Colombia could be on tap after they played Peru close to the vest in the quarter-finals. That Correct Score result (in regulation time) would pay out at +650 on the Centenario props market, compared to +950 if it happens in the USA-Argentina match.
