Prediction

Mexico 2, USA 1

Money line (ML)

BET on MEXICO (+125) as it’s the more talented side.

Many of the young USMNT players aren’t in Gold Cup action. The USA managed to take down Qatar and Jamaica but won both games just 1-0.

USA should be able to get on the board, but the Mexican attack will test the American backline, one that could falter against the best offensive side it has played in the Gold Cup.

Without many key players on the USA side and Mexico is led by F Rogelio Funes Mori and F Orbelin Pineda. Both have had high levels of success so far this tournament, so I’d expect Mexico to find a way to break down the US and take the Gold Cup trophy.

Over/Under (O/U)

“LEAN” on the OVER 2.5 (+145) as the best value at plus-money.

The Mexican offense has been solid, scoring at least 2 goals in three of its last four matches. Mexico hit the Over in three of five matches in the Gold Cup.

The USA hit the Over just once in five matches, but playing against the best attack it has seen, it could be a different story in the final.

With F Daryl Dike attacking and M Cristian Roldan distributing, the USMNT scored in each of its five matches. Mexico has two of the top-10 scorers in the tournament.

Bet the Over but only for half a unit.

CONCACAF Gold Cup: Qatar vs. USA odds, picks and prediction

Previewing Thursday’s Qatar vs. USA odds and lines, with CONCACAF Gold Cup betting picks, tips and best bets.

In the semifinals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Qatar takes on USA Thursday. The match will be held at Q2 Stadium in Austin, Texas with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET. Below, we preview the Qatar vs. USA odds and lines, and make our best Gold Cup bets, picks and predictions.

The United States Men’s National Team enters as the favorite despite not bringing its best personnel to the tournament. USA made it to the semifinals following a 1-0 victory over Jamaica Sunday.

As for Qatar, it has been a scoring machine with 3 goals per game through four matches. It’s coming off a high-scoring 3-2 win over El Salvador in the quarterfinals.

The winner of USA-Qatar will take on the winner of Canada-Mexico.

Prediction

USA 2, Qatar 1

Money line (ML)

BET on USA (-115) as it’s the deeper and more talented side. While D Walker Zimmerman is not with the team due to a hamstring injury, the USMNT has not been heavily impacted by his absence.

It has given up just one goal so far this tournament. While Jamaica was stronger in the back than up top, it was still a capable opponent the USMNT handled well.

Qatar isn’t at the same level as Jamaica and looked flawed in its match with El Salvador. Despite dominating offense, USA should be able to get the job done.

Over/Under (O/U)

“LEAN” to the OVER 2.5 (+100) as Qatar should be able to get on the board. Assuming USA still pulls it out in regular time, the Over would hit.

F Almoez Ali, who scored twice against El Salvador, has been terrific in the Gold Cup for Qatar. On the other side, Orlando City F Daryl Dike has played well.

The two teams have combined for 21 goals scored through their eight games in the tournament. As an even-money bet, the Over is the way to go as Qatar should open the game up for it to be a scoring-heavy match.

Qatar hit the Over 2.5 in three of four matches while the USA has hit it once through four games.

CONCACAF Gold Cup: Mexico vs. Canada odds, picks and prediction

Previewing Thursday’s Mexico vs. Canada odds and lines, with CONCACAF Gold Cup picks and predictions.

The CONCACAF Gold Cup continues Thursday with a semifinals matchup between Mexico and Canada. Kickoff will be at 10 p.m. ET at NRG Stadium in Houston. Below, we preview the Mexico vs. Canada odds and lines, and make our best CONCACAF Gold Cup bets, picks and predictions.

Mexico started off with a sluggish scoreless draw against Trinidad & Tobago in the opening match of group play. It has been a machine ever since, and it spanked Honduras 3-0 in the quarterfinals to punch a ticket to Houston, in front of a pro-El Tri crowd.

Canada roughed up Costa Rica in the quarters Sunday, and it won’t go quietly into the night. MF Stephen Eustaquio did his best Lenarduzzi impression against CRC, going for an assist and a goal for Les Rouges. The Canadians are in the Gold Cup semis for the first time since 2007.

Prediction

Mexico 2, Canada 1

Money line (ML)

MEXICO (-185) is favored, as it tries to set up what would be a titanic final in Las Vegas against the United States. El Tri must beat a tough Canadaian side, and USA must dispatch upstart Qatar.

Mexico will have its hands full, but you can expect the favorite to find a way.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 2.5 (+105) has been the play by the public, but I am feeling that side. I expect Mexico finds the back of the net early in the first half, and it’ll likely build a 2-0 lead before Canada makes things interesting late.

CONCACAF Gold Cup: USA vs. Jamaica odds, picks and prediction

Previewing Sunday’s USA vs. Jamaica odds and lines, with CONCACAF Gold Cup picks and predictions.

The CONCACAF Gold Cup continues Sunday with a quarterfinals matchup between USA and Jamaica with a 9:30 p.m. ET kickoff at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Below, we preview the USA vs. Jamaica odds and lines, and make our best CONCACAF Gold Cup bets, picks and predictions.

Team USA went a perfect 3-for-3 in group play, topping Haiti 1-0, then spanking Martinique 6-1 before easing by Canada 1-0 in the decisive match last Sunday.

Jamaica opened with a solid 2-0 victory over Suriname but was a tad bit shaky in a narrow 2-1 win over Guadeloupe. It ended up on the short end of a 1-0 loss to Costa Rica to finish second in the group.

Prediction

USA 2, Jamaica 0

Money line (ML)

USA (-225) is the play even though it’s a little more expensive than I generally care to play on a money line wager. However, the Reggae Boyz are up against it playing in Arlington against a pro-USA crowd which will give the Americans all the energy they need, and then some.

This will be a decisive effort for the home side, and I also like USA TO WIN TO NIL (+120).

Play our new free daily Pick’em Challenge and win! Play now!

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 2.5 (-115) is a good play, as I expect Team USA to post the clean sheet. Jamaica didn’t impress me one bit during group play. In fact, I feel as though it has gotten sloppier as the tournament has gone on.

If there is a concern here, it is a late third goal in regular or stoppage time with Jamaica pinching up out of desperation.

CONCACAF Gold Cup: Costa Rica vs. Canada odds, picks and prediction

Previewing Sunday’s Costa Rica vs. Canada odds and lines, with CONCACAF Gold Cup picks and predictions.

The CONCACAF Gold Cup continues Sunday with a quarterfinals matchup between Costa Rica and Canada in a 7 p.m. ET kickoff at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Below, we preview the Costa Rica vs. Canada odds and lines, and make our best CONCACAF Gold Cup bets, picks and predictions.

Costa Rica won Group C and seemed to get better as the matches went on. It opened with a 3-1 win over Guadeloupe before a 2-1 win over Suriname. It took a red card in the third and final game but topped Jamaica 1-0 to secure the top spot in the group.

Canada blasted both Martinique and Haiti in a pair of 4-1 victories before falling by a 1-0 count to the United States Sunday in the decisive match for the top of the group.

Prediction

Costa Rica 1, Canada 1 (CRC advances on penalties)

Money line (ML)

The best play on the board is a DRAW (+195) after regular time, as I believe this match will be decided on penalties.

My lean is taking COSTA RICA (-125) as the team to advance to the next round, but it is going to be a super tight affair. I also like YES (-105): BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 2.5 (-175) is rather costly, but this will not be a match with end-to-end action. It’s going to be tight with very few scoring chances, especially during the early going as these sides feel each other out.

Yes, Canada averaged 2.7 goals per match during group play, but it was blanked by the USA, as the only legitimate side it faced.
