USA v Honduras, 12am, live ESPN
Panama v Mexico, 3am, live EPSN

I'VE won money backing USA in every Gold Cup game so far and hopefully we'll make a few more dimes tonight.

USA face Honduras in the first clash in Arlington, Texas and are no bigger than 2-5 at William Hill and Paddy Power to beat Honduras.

The hosts have notched 16 goals in their four matches and the only time they failed to hit a streak was in the meaningless final group game with Costa Rica which they won 1-0.

Honduras qualified courtesy of low-key wins against Haiti and El Salvador before losing to Trinidad and Tobago. They have netted just four times in the tournament – one fewer than USA hitman Chris Wondolowski – and there are question marks about their attack.

I can't see past USA and while betting them to win to nil is tempting they have conceded in three of their four outings. So for me the best bet is USA -1 at 1-1 with Paddy Power while instead of Wondolowski I'm back on Landon Donovan at 7-2 with Skybet to score first after hitting five in his last five internationals.

The later game sees Panama take on Mexico and these two sides met in Group A at the start of the tournament. Panama won 2-1 and I can see a similar sort of result.

They eased to Group A triumph with two wins and a draw against Canada when it didn't matter. Mexico's second string side have bounced back well from that early loss to beat Canada, Martinique and Trinidad and Tobago but none of those are a patch on Panama who look big at 16-5 with Paddy Power and BetVictor.

At that price you can back them +1 and still get 4-5 with the Irish firm.

Gabriel Torres has been Panama's star man with five goals and is 12-5 at Skybet to net at anytime.

    Paul and everyone else just a heads up. Go onto the Skybet website and there is a price boost section for the game. Donovan is 9/2 from 7/2 which is a fantastic price considering 3/1 everywhere else.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Chris, think I quoted 7-2 so 9-2 is good. Must have a decent chance.

  2. Max 7 years ago

    Which of these would be your super single mr F? Ypur favourite of the two games? Was going to create a double but what you thinking?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Max, definitely the USA the favourite.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Dee, I’ve posted my tips on all of these games.

    • Dee 7 years ago

      MrF – Sorry, thats not my actual question I’ve done a wrong post in hurry.

      My doubt is instead of putting wins on AMG & Panama why don’t we go for these bets to be on safe side.Odds really looking good. As in case if matches draw and after all those extra time and penalties.

      Atletico MG v Olimpia Trophy Winner @ 2.40

      Panama v Mexico To Qualify @ 2.55

      Cheers :D

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

    USA @ 1.40
    Atletico Mineiro @ 1.40
    Universidad de Chile @ 1.40
    Over 2.5 @ 1.57

    SORRY LAST ONE WAS Millonarios v FC Porto Over 2.5 @ 1.57

    • Sly 7 years ago

      I think it can happen. Fc Porto made some changes with a new managers, sold Moutinho and James Rodriguez but bought some decent players. They are playing extremely well in this pre season and have a 27-2 goal ratio in their friendlies. They have already played Millionários twice beating them 2-0 and 2-1. The over +2.5ft has happened in all Porto games in this pre season. Millionários just lost one of their main players Montero that was bought by my club Sporting Clube Portugal. But they found a good replacement in international Dayro Moreno. They have an important game in 3 days so they will rotate i guess.

  6. Max 7 years ago

    Cheers mr f gone for that! Fingers crossed hour till kick off!

  7. deeky 7 years ago

    you right they score a lot but millonarios no mugs recently acco to stats?? be fun if you cant sleep! Sly mate pat on the back you are a football encyclopedia!

  8. Madi 7 years ago

    Just seen Universidad are playing tonight :) but the bets il be on is USA -1 and -2 and then atletico to win the copa straight after. Lost out on the barca game, with it being a friendly I didn’t go big on it. Hope to claw it back with the US tho

  9. Sly 7 years ago

    Heh ty mate but it´s a simple explanation for that. I´m portuguese so i have indepth knowledge of portuguese teams.

  10. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    No Wolfinski he’s on the bench

  11. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    £100 Donovan First Goal @ 9/2
    £110 Donovan to score anytime @ 10/11
    £50 Donovan to score in both halves @ 8/1

    Good luck if you are having a bet.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Chris, Donovan’s the main man really. Good luck with the to score in both halves bet, decent odds.

  12. John 7 years ago

    That’s alot of your money back anyway Chris :-)

  13. Dee 7 years ago

    Chris – Good start of the day with Donovan to score anytime.I did £150 on him. Won ;) Congrats :D

    You are very near to your 3rd bet now. Good Luck matey :)

    Who is your bookie for DONOVAN to score in both halves as I couldn’t find it in BET365.

    Cheers :D

  14. John 7 years ago

    I was looking for goalscorer markets on paddy power earlier but you’d have more luck finding the holy grail

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      john, I had same problem with the Atletico game later. Most bookies not pricing these. Right, I’m off. Got tonight’s treble down to about eight picks so need to cut it down in the morning.

  15. lee carswell 7 years ago

    have 4 bets on

    over 2.5 goals at 10/11
    over 3.5 goals at 9/4
    usa – 1 at evens
    usa -2 at 5/1

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      lee, all look good at HT. Let’s hope US don’t take their foot off the gas.

  16. Madi 7 years ago

    Mentioned it earlier but didn’t bet on it as I’m on USA and then atletico but my favourite team for overs Universidad de chile are 1-1 31st minute. Can always rely on them for goals!

  17. Madi 7 years ago

    Well done chris :) great price aswell

  18. Dee 7 years ago

    Chris you cheeky…did it again :D

    Donovan scored in both halves. Happy Days Again.

    Enjoy your day matey :D :D

  19. John 7 years ago

    Well done Chris, great price and cheeky bet if you can find the things :-)

  20. Clarkey 7 years ago

    Good nights work.

    Money on Bayern. Check
    Money on USA -1. Check
    Money on USA HT/FT. Check

    Also had over 3.5 goals in the Bayern Barca match and Paddy Power refunded my bet. Running gooood.

  21. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Thanks everyone. Glad to see a few winners on the us game. £260 on for me and £660 back so £400 profit. Can’t complain.

  22. MrT 7 years ago

    Why did paddy power refund your Bayern overs bet?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      MrT, could have been due to length of the game. Someone said it was being played over 80 minutes and that may not have been advertised. If that’s the case some bookies may refund stakes.

  23. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Oh and the bet was with Skybet. 8/1 to score in both halves or 9/2 to score 2 or more. I decided on the 8/1 as I expected USA to score a few and with Wolfinski out Donovan was the man. Pity he never got first but we can’t win them all.

  24. Madi 7 years ago

    Universidad de goals finished 2-2, just like last week!

  25. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    £50 Marco Fabian first goal @ 7/1

  26. Bob H 7 years ago

  30. Max 7 years ago

    Big shoutout to Mr F asked him for the best one in his opinion took it and it came through! Well done to chris and dee who seem to have done unbeleivably well also! Cheers guys!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Max, they both came through anyway but Panama was more of a long shot.

  31. Clarkey 7 years ago

    Mr T, I have no idea. I’d imagine it was due to the length of the game changing.

    But I thought I’d spend the money before asking questions ha.

    Excellent tip on Panama Mr F, thanks. Just a little frustrated I only had £15 on it after spinning up a decent amount on Bayern and USA yesterday.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Clarkey, always nice to wake to a profit. Panama, USA and Atletico Mineiro all came good for me overnight. Like you I did small stake on Panama and a bigger on Panama plus one as the prices reflected they weren’t expected to win.

    Paul great pick with Pananma. Didn’t see it myself

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Chris, when Panama beat Mexico 2-1 in the group stage I tipped them +1 at 11-8. They usually do well in the Gold Cup and nothing had changed since that earlier meeting so 2-1 wasn’t a huge surprise although bookies got it wrong. Hoping that’s it though for Panama as I have USA on the outrights and tipped it at the start of the tournament.

      Recommended Bet

      USA

  33. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Well done Dee

  34. MrT 7 years ago

    At the start of in-play it was switched to 80 mins but after about 30 mins inplay froze and went back to 90 mins. Full 90 mins were played so refund seems strange. I’d love to get my losses back but need a reason.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      MrT, maybe it froze and you couldn’t get a bet on. Anyway, off to play a few holes, will check in later.
