CONCACAF Gold Cup Quarter-Final Betting Previews, Best Odds, and USMNT vs Canada Pick

Arlo Gibbons


The CONCACAF Gold Cup, which is currently taking place, has seen some surprising odds at the sportsbook. Despite being the defending champions, the USMNT is priced cheaper than Mexico as a Gold Cup outright winner pick. Additionally, Panama, who is playing against Qatar in the quarter-finals, has garnered more underdog bets as a gold-medal futures pick than Jamaica, who is unbeaten in the championship so far.

The short odds on Mexico and the underdog bets on Panama may be due to the challenging bracket draws for the USMNT and Jamaica. The odds for the quarter-final matchups are as follows:

– Panama vs Qatar: Panama is favored to win at -115, despite never having won the Gold Cup before. However, Qatar has been impressive, beating Mexico in the Group Stage with a clean sheet. The recommended bet is “Both Teams to Score” as “No” at -148.

– Mexico vs Costa Rica: Mexico is a solid favorite at -300 to defeat Costa Rica, who is the underdog at +700. Costa Rica has shown some attacking prowess, scoring 6 goals in a must-win match against Martinique. However, Mexico’s implied casualness in their defeat against Qatar is one of the reasons why they are favored to win. No recommended bets are given for this matchup.

– Guatemala vs Jamaica: Jamaica is a modest favorite at -145 to defeat Guatemala. While Jamaica has a strong lineup with several players expected to start for Premiership teams in the future, they have underperformed in recent tournaments. However, they have been coasting since their impressive performance against Team USA in Round 1 of the Gold Cup. The recommended bet is Jamaica (-145).

– United States vs Canada: The USMNT is favored at -150 to beat Canada in their quarter-final matchup. Canada is unbeaten in the competition and is looking for revenge after their disappointing performance against the United States in the Nations League. However, Canada is dealing with several injuries and full-time replacements, making their squad weaker. The recommended bet is the United States (-150).

Overall, the Gold Cup has seen some surprising odds and matchups. Mexico is favored over the USMNT, Panama is an underdog pick against Qatar, and Jamaica is favored over Guatemala. The tournament has provided some interesting betting opportunities for fans.
