Canada v Martinique (10.30pm), Mexico v Panama (1am)

I HAD great success on the Confederations Cup games but I'm not sure about the Gold Cup.

Most of the sides are less well know but one thing I'm pretty sure of is that the USA are likely to emerge as tournament winners.

The United States and Mexico have dominated proceedings with 10 wins in the last 11 tournaments but as I said yesterday Mexico have taken a second team to America with none of their Confederations Cup squad involved. In fact, all of their players are home-based so for Mexico look too short at 2-1 with Betfred and others.

So I'll be on hosts the US at 11-8 with William Hill and they warmed up with a fine 6-0 win against Guatemala with LA Galaxy star Landon Donovan playing a starring role.

Costa Rica, 12-1 at Paddy Power, could be worth an each-way bet. They sit second behind the US in World Cup qualifying and their squad looks stronger than Mexico's.

The action starts tonight with Canada against minnows Martinique. Canada are no bigger than 13-20 with BetVictor to win the game but need to improve on current form. They have lost five and drawn one of their last six and netted just one goal in three warm-up games for the tournament.

I'm assuming a narrow Canada win and under 2.5 goals pays 5-6 at Paddy Power. Norwich striker Simeone Jackson is Canada's top man and is 7-2 with Paddy Power to score first.

Martinique, a non-FIFA member who usually play sides such as Virgin Islands and Barbados, are a best 11-2 with the likes of William Hill but will take heart from the fact they've drawn their last two Gold Cup meetings with the Canadians.

Mexico kick off their campaign against Panama at 1am against and the same teams recently drew a World Cup qualifier. The second string of Mexico are just 13-20 at BetVictor but I don't think Panama, 11-2 at Paddy Power, should be under-estimated.

This could be a draw but best bet is Panama plus one at 13-10 with bet365.

      Unhinged, I’m aware of that but will be listed as a Norwich player until he signs for someone else.
