CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying Matches to Bet this Week: Tuesday, Mar. 24th
El Salvador +300 vs Jamaica -102
- When: March 24 at 7:05 pm ET
Neither squad shows good enough form to warrant a wager. Since a 1-1 draw versus the United States on Nov. 16 last year, the home chalk has lost 4 straight.
On Jan. 20, Peru blasted Jamaica 3-0 in a friendly. In their next match, Mexico beat Jamaica 2-1 on Jan. 27. On Jan. 30, Panama handed Jamaica a 3-2 loss, and then in their last on Feb. 2, Costa Rica beat Jamaica 1-0.
El Salvador’s form isn’t much better than Jamaica’s. But the road dog beat Honduras 2-0 on Jan. 30. Also, +300 on El Salvador makes the road team an overlay.
Soccer Pick: El Salvador
Honduras +620 vs Panama -212
- When: March 24 at 9:05 pm ET
Honduras is a massive underdog for a reason. The Hondurans have lost 5 straight matches. The road dog has lost their last three matches, to Canada, El Salvador, and the United States, by a combined 7 goals to 0. Even El Salvador beat Honduras 2-0.
Panama has more than one advantage in this match. Not only does this happen on the pitch at Estadio Rommel Fernández Gutiérrez in Panama, but the home chalk beat Jamaica 3-2 on Jan. 30, and lost by just a goal to Mexico on Feb. 2.
In the last head-to-head, on Nov. 12 last year, Panama bested Honduras 3-2. Expect a similar finish to Thursday’s contest.

Canada +145 vs Costa Rica +215

The Canadians and Los Ticos are both en fuego. The road chalk has won their last 5 CONCACAF FIFA World Cup Qualifying matches.
Canada beat Costa Rica 1-0 on Nov. 12, they dropped Mexico 2-1 on Nov. 16, and they blasted Team USA 2-0 on Jan. 30. Counting the victory over the U.S., the road fave has won their last 3 WC qualifiers by a combined 6 goals to 0.
But although Canada looks tough, Costa Rica is gearing up for a big performance. Los Ticos has won 3-of-5 with a draw. Costa Rica beat Honduras 2-1, they got past Panama 1-0, and in their last, Costa Rica outlasted Jamaica 1-0. The draw happened in a 0-0 match versus Mexico.
Canada should win, but the Canadians have already notched their ticket to the Qatar World Cup. The +215 odds makes the home team an overlay. Go with Los Ticos to win this in regulation.
