Wednesday, June 19
Canada vs Mexico
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Canada +858 / Mexico -344
Mexico has played great in their last 5. In their Matchday 1 battle, they dominated Cuba 7-0. Before that, they had beaten Chile, Paraguay, Venezuela, and Ecuador. They face a somewhat difficult test versus Canada, though.
The Canadians are 4-1 in their last 5 matches. They beat Martinique 4-0 in their first CONCACAF Gold Cup game. Canada will put up a fight in this, but Mexico should prevail. It’s difficult to back the Mexicans on the handicap even though they should win by at least 2 goals.
Soccer Betting Pick: Mexico
Martinique vs Cuba
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Martinique -200 / Cuba +537
Cuba’s gone 0-2 in their last couple of matches, including a 1-2 loss to Haiti in a Gold Cup Qualifying game. Mexico dominated Cuba in both teams’ first match at the 2019 Gold Cup.
Martinique was on a 4 match win streak before losing to Canada. Martinique most definitely can win this match, but they offer underlay odds here. Cuba’s worth backing at the odds.
Soccer Betting Pick: Cuba
Thursday, June 20
Haiti vs Nicaragua
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Haiti +110 / Nicaragua +236
Haiti beat Bermuda 2-1 on June 16. Nicaragua has been outscored a combined 9-1 in their last couple of matches. However, the Nicaraguans battled Argentina in an international friendly on June 7 and Costa Rica on June 16 in their first Gold Cup match.
Costa Rica and Argentina are two very good teams. Nicaragua can surprise Haiti on Thursday. They’re the pick.
Soccer Betting Pick: Nicaragua
Bermuda vs Costa Rica
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Bermuda +2531 / Costa Rica -1428
Costa Rica should cruise right by Bermuda. The handicap is high, Costa Rica must win by more than 3 goals at -129, but this is a massive mismatch. Los Ticos showed what they could do in the 4-0 beat down they put onto Nicaragua in their first Gold Cup match. They dominate Bermuda by 4 to 6 goals on June 20.
Soccer Betting Pick: Costa Rica
Friday, June 21
Jamaica vs El Salvador
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Jamaica +120 / El Salvador +229
This is a really interesting match. Both Jamaica and El Salvador won their first Gold Cup games. Jamaica took it 3-2 over Honduras while El Salvador beat Curacao 1-0 and Jamaica beat Honduras 3-2.
Jamaica allowed Honduras to score a couple of goals. El Salvador’s defense might be the leading factor here. Backing the El Salvadorians at the better odds.
Soccer Betting Pick: El Salvador
Curacao vs Honduras
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Curacao +193 / Honduras +141
Curacao and Honduras are similar in talent. Curacao played a great match versus El Salvador while Honduras played a tight match against Jamaica. This one could go either way. When faced with a tight match like this, it makes sense to back the team offering the better odds. That’s Curacao.
Soccer Betting Pick: Curacao
Saturday, June 22
Panama vs Guyana
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Panama -588 / Guyana +1178
Panama has their first CONCACAF Gold Cup match on Tuesday. Although they should beat Trinidad and Tobago, even if it’s a tough battle, the Panamanians will have no trouble versus Guyana on Saturday, June 22.
Panama has lost their last couple of matches by a combined 0-6. But those two games were versus Colombia and Uruguay. Right now, the Colombians and Uruguayans look like the two best teams at the 2019 Copa America. Panama dominates Guyana on Saturday, which means you should consider the handicap at Panama -2, -126 if you wish to play this.
Soccer Betting Pick: Panama handicap
Trinidad and Tobago vs USA
- 2019 Gold Cup Odds: Trinidad and Tobago +1250 / USA -714
Like Panama, the United States plays their first match versus Guayana on Tuesday, June 18. USA is a -9999 favorite over Guayana. The handicap is -4 ¼, -114. Trinidad and Tobago should put up more of a fight than the U.S., but you’ve got to believe the Americans come out ahead.
However, it’s impossible to wager on the USA either straight up at the terrible odds or even on the handicap where they’re giving up 2 ½ goals. Trinidad and Tobago at +2 ½ , -126 makes the most sense.
Soccer Betting Pick: Trinidad and Tobago handicap
