Paraguay are seen as odd-on favourites to progress to the final of this year’s 2011 Copa America, where they are likely to face three-time winners Uruguay.
bwin prices los Guaranies at 19/20 to overcome the challenge of Venezuela at the semi final stage, while La Vinotinto are seen as 29/20 outsiders.
However, after the two sides played out a 3-3 draw in the group stage of the competition, a number of football betting fans could be attracted by the 11/5 odds on a stalemate this time round.
New customers using the site’s free £25 bet option on this bet would see returns of £80.

Punters should also be aware that Paraguay have failed to win any of their games inside 90 minutes so far, drawing their three group games and needing penalties to knock out Brazil.
With six goals being hit the last time the two sides met, a number of punters could be tempted to back which team, or indeed player, will score the game’s first goal.
Roque Santa Cruz, who now has 25 international goals to his name, is seen as a 4/1 shot to open the scoring, while Nelson Valdez, who has 12 from 52 caps, is also priced at 4/1 to achieve the feat.
Luis Barrios is also among the favourites to get Paraguay off to a flying start and also offers odds of 4/1.
Venezuela’s forwards are also fancied to get in on the act, but offer slightly healthier returns in the first goal scorer markets.
Daniel Arismendi offers odds of 8/1 to score first and add to his 11 international goals, while Giancarlo Maldonado, who has 20 from 59, is also priced at 8/1.
With only one win from the last five clashes between the countries, Venezuela are not expected to win.
However the 50/1 odds on a 3-2 win, the result last time they beat Paraguay, could attract a lot of attention.
That said, those looking to back a repeat scoreline could be advised to back Los Guaranies, with a 2-1 or 2-0 win priced at 33/4 and 15/2 respectively.
Football betting fans expecting the draw could see massive returns on a successful bet on a 3-3 scoreline, with bwin offering odds of 66/1.
