HOSTS USA are massive favourites to reach the last four of the Gold Cup tonight by beating El Salvador (9pm).

The tournament favourites are 2-9 (various) to win after picking up maximum points from their three group matches.

I can't see anything but a USA success against a side who qualified despite their only victory being a 1-0 success over Haiti.

That 2-9 is fairly restrictive though so consider USA -1 at 8-15 Stan James while some may look at -2 at 6-4 with Paddy Power and bet365.

Strangely the USA conceded to minnows Belize and Cuba while hitting 10 goals of their own so there is a chance of both scoring at 6-5 with boylesports.

Chris Wondolowski has netted five goals despite starting just twice and is 11-4 at William Hill to bag the opener and 8-13 at Skybet to score at any time.

He's the man I'll be on and I hope penalty taker Landon Donovan doesn't deny me.

Tonight's other games sees Honduras face Costa Rica at midnight and it's tough to call. Both sides have played well to qualify but neither look as if they have too many goals in them. This may need extra time and draw pays 23-10 at Paddy Power.

    3 of last 6 usa games heve been under 2.5.
    The 4, 6, 6 they scored were v guatamala, belize and cuba, no surprise there.
    the others
    1-0 v costa rica
    1-0 v honduras
    2-0 v panama
    They dont have to hammer salvador
    1 or 2 nil will do.
    salvador conceded 3 in 3 games.

    My tip is dont waste money on this pointless cup, but if you must bet, under 3.5 or, 2-0 or 3-0 for me.

  2. bad jasper 7 years ago

    Oops, 2-0 already.
    never heard of the scorers though

      bad jasper, not the usual scorers but at least btts is up at a decent price.

    You thinking unders on costa rica game?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Max, I was thinking unders but at around 4-7 for under 2.5 I’m not so sure.

  4. Rory 7 years ago

    What’s the verdict then for the Honduras guys overs or unders or what u think about just a Costa Rica win mr f at evens

  5. Jack g 7 years ago

    Made my 500 back that I lost with liverpool with this usa win :D

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Jack g, another predictably easy win for the USA. Made a few quid on the handicaps and btts but lost on Wondolowski scoring none of the five goals.

  6. Jack g 7 years ago

    @ Rory ,

    Usa seem to be only team you can put any sort of trust into in this competition, going for a all out win for either Costa Rica or Honduras is very sketchy in my opinion!

  7. Jack g 7 years ago

    I just went big on usa -2 luckily they wanted to score goals tonight! ,

    When is your treble coming on mr F? And how did it get on today? Didn’t get chance to get on it today!

    Hi everyone, I’m a long time lurker, first time poster.

    Anyway, had USA -2 earlier so showing profit there.

    Gonna go with Draw HT/Draw FT @11/4 (PaddyPower) for the Honduras Costa Rica game.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Clarkey, USA did the business for us eventually and you might be right with Honduras-Costa Rica which should be tight. I tipped USA to win the tournament at the start and they look pretty much unstoppable.

    The groundsmen who put the nets up for the Honduras-Costa Rica game needn’t have bothered. Could’ve put all the money in china on this game going under 2.5!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Hank, that was my feeling but as I said earlier pretty short and an early goal can change that. I’m off now but hope to wake up and see it’s been 0-0 or 1-1.

  10. The UHT 7 years ago

    This Honduras game’s sprung to life! Half an hour to get to over 2.5 from 1-0…? I’m on!

  11. The UHT 7 years ago

    Doh! Plenty enough chances, though…

  12. Clarkey 7 years ago

    How on earth Costa Rica haven’t scored there I don’t know, missed 2 sitters and had a decent penalty shout turned down in added time.

    Great defending from Honduras but easily the worst game I’ve seen in the Gold Cup that.

    I bet on 1-0 too to cover my HT/FT bet, but on Costa RIca unfortunately.

  13. RabTheHermit 7 years ago

    I went on over 2 goals UHT. The captain at the back for Honduras was immense though. I really thought that goal would have opened it up and led to a goal for someone either on the attack or counter.
