THE big guns came out firing in the Concacaf Gold Cup on Sunday with Mexico and Costa Rica both winning 5-0.

I tipped them to romp to opening victories and it could pay to back the favourites on Monday.

Both matches kick off at midnight BST so only the hardiest of punters will stay up to watch.

But it could be worth while if you have a double on Jamaica v Grenada and Honduras v Guatemela.

Jamaica are a best 2-7 with Coral while you can have 11-1 on their opponents with the likes of bet365, Chandler and Stan James.

The handicap market may be the best way to go and Jamaica are 19-20 with Stan James minus one.

Honduras are third favourites on the outrights but have lost British-based full-backs Maynor Figueroa and Emilio Izaguirre as well as having a new coach in the shape of Luis Fernando Suarez on board.

The only fear for the Hondurans is that they take time to settle but they should be too strong for Guatemala.

Honduras are a best 2-5 at Ladbrokes with their challengers 8-1 at Chandler.

Again look at the handicap market where Honduras are 11-8 with Stan James minus one.

The third game on Monday is a friendlly between Ukraine and France and it seems to be at the worst possible time.

France looked jaded after a long season as they drew in Belarus on Friday while Ukraine will be hoping to impress.

I can't see Ukraine losing this against a weakened team and they are 7-4 with Ladbrokes. France are the same price with William Hill while the draw pays 23-10 at Ladbrokes.

Best bet could be to take the first goal after 27 minutes and this 5-6 with various firms.


Honduras -1

(11-8, Stan James)

Ukraine v France first goals after 27 minutes

(5-6, various)
