Canada vs Haiti
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Canada -147 / Haiti +412
Canada’s gotten some action since the betting line was set at Canada -142. The Canadians beat Martinique 4-0, lost 1-3 to Mexico, and then beat Cuba 7-0. Canada heads into this match on a hot streak.
Even though Canada is hot, Haiti is on fire. The Haitians have won their last 4 soccer games, going back to a 3-1 international friendly win over Guyana on June 11. Haiti beat Bermuda and Nicaragua. That was nothing compared to their 2-1 win over Costa Rica. The Haitians will play this game tight, making the draw at +256 a logical wager.
Soccer Betting Pick: Draw
Costa Rica vs Mexico
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Costa Rica +718 / Mexico -256
Mexico appears superior to Costa Rica. However, before deriding Los Ticos for their 1-2 loss to Haiti, we must realize that Costa Rica knew they were moving on during that match. They had no desire to leave everything out on the field with the understanding that they had to battle a team like Mexico in the quarterfinals.
Mexico is a solid squad. They held back against Martinique and still won 3-2. The Mexicans have the best team at this year’s Gold Cup. They should beat Costa Rica. Costa Rica is still the play because the handicap, +1 ¾ -120, makes the most sense.
Soccer Betting Pick: Costa Rica handicap
Sunday, June 30
Panama vs Jamaica
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Panama +156 / Jamaica +200
The oddsmakers feel Panama-Jamaica is the most competitive match this weekend at the Gold Cup. Panama heads into this after an 0-1 loss to the United States in their third match. Jamaica beat Honduras 3-2, and then drew with El Salvador 0-0, and Curacao, 1-1, in their other two group play matches.
Panama has the edge, but Jamaica’s defense is strong. The Jamaicans won’t take any chances here. This is another match where the draw, this time at +181, looks like the optimal wager.
Soccer Betting Pick: Draw
Curacao vs United States
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Curacao +2182 / United States -909
Curacao has no shot of upsetting the United States and this shouldn’t be a draw. The real key is which handicap wager to make, on Curacao or on the U.S.? Curacao offers +2 ¼ -113 odds. The United States offers -2 ¼ -116 odds.
The U.S. has outscored their three opponents a combined 11-0. They beat Trinidad and Tobago 6-0. But, Curacao hasn’t allowed more than a single goal in a loss to El Salvador, a win over Honduras, and a draw versus Jamaica. Curacao is the play on the handicap.>
Soccer Betting Pick: Curacao handicap
