THE opening games in Group A went just as I expected … with the two underdogs winning. Panama beat a weakened Mexico while Martinique stunned shot-shy Canada in the other contest.

First up in the early hours of Friday morning it's Panama v Martinique (1.30am) with the winners making the semi-finals. It's a massive carrot for both and while the Caribbean country's win over Canada can't be underestimated I can't see past a win for Panama who have been consistently good performers in this tournament for many years.

Only a late Clint Dempsey goal for the USA denied them a place in the Final two years ago and Panama should be too good for Martinique. They look a decent bet at 19-20 with bet365.

The Mexico-Canada game (4am) is tougher to call. Both were poor in their openers and Canada have now lost one of their better players, former Norwich striker Simeon Jackson who has flown to Germany to sign for Braunschweig.

Picking a winner is tough but it looks like an unders game so I'll be on under 2.5 goals at 19-20 with bet365. Most of the money is on Mexico but remember this is their second-string side with no Confederations Cup players included so consider the draw at 19-5 with BetVictor.

    Whats the double pay?

  2. Ed 8 years ago

    It’s pretty simple maths, Jacko.

    19/20 is 1.95.

    1.95 x 1.95 is 3.8025.

    So the double pays a shade under 3/1. Not a bad return really although I’m unsure about backing unders in a game featuring a side as poor as Canada.

    Good luck to those betting nonetheless :)

      Ed, with Mexico fielding a second string it’s two poor sides really. Not staying up but confident I can recoup losses on Europa League. With St Pat’s scoring only Videoton, who always net, let the treble down. Good to see Chikhura get a result at Vaduz after all the talk earlier about the home side being good .. and SWISS!

    When do these games take place? Is it Saturday morning or Friday morning as Saturday is the 13th not Friday

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      John, defo Friday morning. Reckon I put Saturday’s date down coz I’d just finished my Record column which will focus on USA v Cuba.

  4. kyle 8 years ago

    Mr f, the ladbrokes site says that these matches are on the 12th of july in the early hours. Meaning in a few hours??

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Kyle, they are in a few hours, early hours of Friday morning.

    I have been following your tips for 2 weeks now and I would just like to say that your tips are great.I will definitely become a regular here.

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Monty, every tip is well researched and never randomly picked. Sometimes they’re great and other times they’re not. Gold Cup’s been good so far but Europa League today was disappointing.

    Unlucky on earliers trebles mr F,

  7. kev 8 years ago

    U going for costa rica and usa -2 double tomo mr f? Got on it before odds change. Canada looked shocking at the back the other night cant see past a mexico win tonight. Paddy power doing 6/4 for panama and mexico both to win

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Kev, probably be on that. USA -2 for sure and Costa Rica -1 or -2 depending on the price. Pretty sure about Panama but need to see more of this Mexico side before being convinced by them.

  13. Titou 8 years ago

    Anyone know if Joel Campbells with the Costa Rica squad in the Gold Cup ?

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Titou, no Joel Campbells in the squad list I have.

    • bad jasper 8 years ago

      racing post tipping Haiti v Trinidad btts.
      haven’t they seen trinidads scoring record.
      before the el Salvador game, no goal in 6 games, including belize.
      Haiti conceded goals recently, but they were against the likes of Italy and spain etc

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      bad jasper, I think T&T will score. A lot of the games you refer to are friendlies and also the fact they scored two against El Salvador suggests they’ll score against a weaker Haiti team.
