AFCON 2021 odds: Cameroon sure to win Group A, Burkina Faso and Cape Verde aim second

The host nation of 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon, are as good as sure to win Group A of the AFCON, according to international online sports betting sites. The bookies offer odds of 1.50 (-200 American; 1/2 Fractional) on Cameroon to win Group A, which equals a chance of around 65%.

Cameroon have won five AFCON titles to date, which makes them the second most successful team of the tournament. With Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting from Bayern Munich and Vincent Aboubakar from Al-Nassr, the Cameroonian national football team has every chance to top Group A of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Burkina Faso and Cape Verde are more than close in betting odds and will probably battle for second place. Online bookies offer 5.00 (+400; 4/1) on the former and 6.50 (+550; 11/2) on the latter, which equals approximate probabilities of around 20% and 15%, respectively.

Ethiopia are the outsiders of Group A at the AFCON 2021, with the odds of 12.50 (+1150; 23/2) on them to top the group table. Also, they are the only team that is not odds-on to qualify from Group A, meaning they are not likely even to become one of the best four third-placed teams at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations started on 9 January 2022 and will end on 6 February 2022.
