Guatemala vs. Cuba picks and predictions
Guatemala 1, Cuba 0
Guatemala (-225) will cost you over 2 times your potential return if you bet it straight up. That’s too expensive, especially against a Cuba (+650) side playing with some pretty good confidence.
Instead, consider GUATEMALA 1:0, 2:0 OR 3:0 (+120) in the multiple correct score section at plus-money for a much better value.
Under 2.5 (-185) is a little too rich for my blood, too. My personal limit for a total play is -140, and this is just priced way out of line.
Instead, take a chance on UNDER 1.5 (+160) for a light play at plus-money. I also like the halftime and fulltime play, taking TIE/GUATEMALA (+270) for an opportunity to nearly triple up.
