USA v Panama, Sunday, 9pm

IT'S the final of the Gold Cup tonight and that's a shame as the tournament has been a bit of a money-making machine.

Hosts USA, my outright tip at 13-8, face Panama in Chicago and it's apt the two best teams are meeting in a trophy showdown.

USA have slammed in 19 goals in five games while Panama have conceded just three and between them the sides have won eight out of nine games.

Landon Donovan's been the star of the show with five goals and seven assists but his haul has been matched by team-mate Chris Wondolowski and Panama's Gabriel Torres.

Even if I hadn't tipped USA at the start I'd been on them to win as they've been rock solid throughout and consistently banged in the goals.

However, Panama deserve respect and while I've backed USA -1 or even -2 in most of their previous matches I can see this being quite tight, possibly 2-1 in their favour.

Jurgen Klinsmann will be watching from the stand after being handed a one-match ban for ranting at officials during the semi-final but it shouldn't make much difference and I'm on his men to triumph at a best 1-2 with Coral and I'm considering a small stake on them to win by one at 5-2 with Paddy Power and bet365.

Donovan has played all but 18 minutes of the tournament and is leading all-time scorer with 18 and three winner's medals. It would be a fitting finish if he could score and my Super Single is the LA Galaxy striker at 11-10 with bet365 to net at anytime.

He is 4-1 with William Hill and bet365 to score first ahead of five-goal fellow striker Chris Wondolowski who is 5-1 at bet365. Panama's Gabriel Torres is the other player on five goals and he is 8-1 at William Hill to break the deadlock.

USA have conceded in every game bar a 1-0 win against Costa Rica. That included big wins over minnows Cuba and Belize so you have to fancy both teams to score at 6-5 with boylesports.

    Wondolowski on the bench, all the more reason to back Donovan

  5. Mike 7 years ago

    Been a while since I’ve been on here! Never bet out of season! First bet in a while is Donovan FGS!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Mike, Donovan should have scored first but kindly let his team-mate take the glory!

  6. Craig alves 7 years ago

    donovan 1-0 USA is what your wanting now Chris, forgot all about this beingvon but bet365 stats show not much of a game

  7. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Not watching the game but according to ESPN the USA have had 76% of the ball but that’s no good without a goal. If this game was to end 0-0 it would be disastrous for me and I’m guessing most people.

  8. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    I’d take either USA to win by 1 or Donovan first goal. Hopefully we will see some action in the second half.

  9. Clarkey 7 years ago

    I’m watching on Paddy Power.

    All USA but Panama have 11 men behind the ball at all times, not many chances created at either end.

    But yeah as Chris said, 0-0 is disastrous.

  10. Madi 7 years ago

    Not looking good. Went with Donovan anytime and btts . Destined to finish 0-0? Might have a punt on that

  11. Clarkey 7 years ago

    Boom 1-0 Brek Shea, first touch of the ball for him after coming on 45 seconds before

  12. Clarkey 7 years ago

    And wow how Donovan didn’t finish it I don’t know.

    6 yards out and he air shotted it which left it to Shea to tap in virtually on the line.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Clarkey, Donovan cost me a few quid but still won on the match with USA, USA to win by one and the outright result so not a bad night.

  13. Greg Browning 7 years ago


    Put a single on over 0.5 goals at 8/13 with 25 mins to go and have a single on USA to win at 1/2

    Can now cover it and ensure today is a great day! :)

  14. Madi 7 years ago

    Didn’t go for the 0-0 thankfully!

  15. Alex 7 years ago

    I have never posted on here before but always follow your tips and after a disastrous day, I have made a tidy profit on the USA.

    £20 on Under 2.5 goals
    £10 on USA by 1
    £50 on USA to win tournament before it started.

    Makes up for Internacional messing around earlier on!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Alex, USA have made me a profit in every game so far so it’s a shame the tournament is ending. Anyway here comes the new season.

  16. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    £200 on USA to win by 1 goal @ 5/2 returned £700.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Chris, that would have been my Super Single if I’d picked it today but anyway it was one of my main recommendations as thought it would be close.
