Saturday, June 15
Martinique vs Canada
- 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup Odds: Martinique +585 / Canada -217
Martinique is 4-1 in their last 5 matches. They beat Guadeloupe, Antigua and Barbuda, the British Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. The loss happened against Panama 0-3.
Canada is 5-0 in their last 5 matches. One of the victories was an 8-0 thumping of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Canada towers over Martinique in terms of talent. They should beat their Saturday rivals by at least 2 goals.
Soccer Betting Pick: Canada
Cuba vs Mexico
- 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup Odds: Cuba +4900 / Mexico -9999
Nothing in Cuba’s form says they hang with the Mexicans in this match. Cuba has 3 wins, a loss, and a draw in their last 5. However, not a single one of the victories can be considered a quality victory. The draw happened against Bermuda while Haiti beat them 2-1.
Mexico lost to Argentina in a friendly back in November. Since then, they’ve beaten Chile, Paraguay, Venezuela, and Ecuador. Don’t be surprised if the Mexicans dominate the Cubans by 3 or more goals.
Soccer Betting Pick: Mexico
Sunday, June 16
Bermuda vs Haiti
- 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup Odds: Bermuda +794 / Haiti -303
Haiti isn’t a great soccer team. They did beat Guayana and Cuba and lost only 1-2 to Chile in 3 of their last 5 matches, though. That’s much better than what Bermuda did against Cuba two matches ago, losing 0-5.
Bermuda could play Haiti tough. The Haitians should get at least one goal, though, while Bermuda might get 0.
Soccer Betting Pick: Haiti
Nicaragua vs Costa Rica
- 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup Odds: Nicaragua +1328 / Costa Rica -555
Nicaragua heads into this match after a 1-5 drubbing against Argentina. The Nicaraguans beat Barbados 1-0. They could only draw versus Bolivia 2-2 three matches ago.
Costa Rica is 2-3 straight up in their last 5. The Ticos only yielded a single goal in their last couple of losses. Not only that, but when the U.S. beat them 2-0 on Feb. 2, that was in a friendly match. Costa Rica should dominate Nicaragua on Sunday.
Soccer Betting Pick: Costa Rica
Monday, June 17
El Salvador vs Curacao
- 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup Odds: El Salvador +199 / Curacao +236
This projects to be one of the most competitive games on the first match day at the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Curacao is 4-1 in their last 5, but the teams they beat, Vietnam, India, Guadeloupe, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, aren’t exactly soccer heavyweights.
El Salvador has wins against Haiti, Peru, Jamaica, and Guatemala on their resume. They did lose 0-2 to Japan in their last. It makes sense to give Curacao a shot to upset El Salvador on June 17.
Soccer Betting Pick: Curacao
Honduras vs Jamaica
- 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup Odds: Honduras +235 / Jamaica +121
Jamaica is in better form than Honduras. The Jamaicans beat the U.S. 1-0 in a friendly game on June 5. They also lost by only a single goal versus Costa Rica on March 26.
Brazil dominated Honduras 7-0 in a friendly on June 9. Honduras could only draw with Paraguay 1-1 on June 5 in a friendly. Jamaica has the edge based off their victory against the United States.
Soccer Betting Pick: Jamaica
Tuesday, June 18
Trinidad and Tobago vs Panama
- 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup Odds: Trinidad and Tobago +309 / Panama -104
Trinidad and Tobago is 1-1-3 in their last 5 matches. Panama is 0-1-4 in their last 5 matches. Although it appears as if Trinidad and Tobago has the edge, they might not. The win happened way back in September and it was against United Arab Emirates.
Then again, Panama has lost their last two matches against Uruguay and Colombia a combined 0-6. Trinidad and Tobago has enough of a shot to justify backing at the decent odds.
Soccer Betting Pick: Trinidad and Tobago
Guyana vs USA
- 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup Odds: Guyana +4119 / USA -4999
The United States is 0-2 in their last couple of matches. The team doesn’t look that great. Jamaica beat them 1-0 on June 5 and then Venezuela dominated them 3-0 on June 9. Although Guyana appears to be in better form, the U.S. is the play.
Guayana hasn’t battled a quality squad in their last 5 while the loss to Venezuela occurred only four days after battling Jamaica. The United States will go all out in this. They should beat Guayana by at least 3 goals.
Soccer Betting Pick: United States
