Gold Cup Betting Preview


AFTER the Confederations Cup we have the Gold Cup but this could be short on quality.

Three groups of four feature powerhouses such as French Guyana, Martinique, Nicaragua, Curacao and Jamaica.

Bookies expect hosts USA and Mexico to contest the Final but both have named weakened squads. USA coach Bruce Arena is looking at new faces and stars such as Clint Dempsey, Jozy Altidore and Tim Howard have been given a pass.

Mexico’s main men were at the Confeds in Russia so their squad all play at home and many are uncapped although extremely talented.

The Mexicans are 7-5 tournament favourites with Marathonbet while USA are 7-4 at Betway but don’t rule out challenges from Costa Rica or Panama.

Costa Rica are without Real Madrid keeper Keylor Navas but have Sporting Lisbon attackers Bryan Ruiz and Joel Campbell on board as well as MLS stars Rodney Wallace and Johan Venegas. Sunderland’s Bryan Oviedo and Giancarlo Gonzalez of Bologna are also included.

The 2014 World Cup quarter-finalists are third favourites at 7-1 with bwin and look worth an each-way bet considering they are close to full strength.

It all kicks off at midnight with Canada tackling French Guyana in Group A followed by Costa Rica v Honduras. A double on Canada and Costa Rica not to lose pays 6-5 at Marathonbet and I put that up as a Super Single.

Panama, semi-finalists in the last three Gold Cups, tackle USA on Saturday night in the Group B opener and both should progress by beating minnows Martinique and Nicaragua.

A draw tonight wouldn’t be the worst result for the duo and pays 13-5 at Marathonbet. USA look a bit short at 3-4 with Marathonbet while Panama are 9-2 at McBookie.

That looks big considering they’ve brought most of their main men to face a USA B team so consider them draw no bet at 14-5 with McBookie.

In the absence of Dempsey and Altidore the States could turn to Dom Dwyer for goals. The English-born striker had a trial with St Mirren four years ago but a loan move was blocked by his club Sporting Kansas.

He has gone on to net 60 goals in 133 games since and netted on his US debut in a friendly against Ghana last week. Dwyer is 9-2 at bet365 to score first and 24-13 with 10Bet at any time.

You can have 20-1 at Betway on Panama and the fourth favourites are also each-way value.

Mexico launch their campaign in the early hours of Monday morning against Jamaica and are a best 3-10 at Ladbrokes.

The Gold Cup jollies should be too good for the Reggae Boyz who are in transition and consider them minus one at 10-11 with Ladbrokes.
