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.
