CONCACAF Gold Cup 2019 predictions
The last nine CONCACAF Gold Cup tournaments have been won by either the USA or Mexico, so it's no surprise to see these two teams at the top of the odds list wherever you prefer to place a bet.
Mexico is easily the strongest team in the competition and it's not hard to see why - soccer is their national sport and they are the second-most populated country involved. They made it to the Round of 16 at the World Cup at the most recent event in Russia, a feat they have managed for seven consecutive tournaments, and they also qualified for this tournament as the number-one seed.
The majority of the team play in Mexico's Liga MX, which is arguably the best quality league in the region, and they can also call on overseas stars like captain Andres Guardado (Real Betis) and Raul Jiminez (pictured), who is fresh off an emphatic season in the English Premier League. They have plenty of quality and it really is their tournament to lose. Opening at 2.40, Mexico has solid value.
Meanwhile, it's a little less straight-forward to predict the chances of the USA. The Americans are the defending champions, having defeated Jamaica in the final in 2017, yet they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup - something they had not done since 1986.
They will be hungry to make amends, although their best side on paper will struggle to beat Mexico's top side.
On the other hand, they do have the luxury of hosting the tournament, although that has been the case since the inception of the Gold Cup and hasn't always meant success for the home team.
They also face a tricky group featuring World Cup qualifiers Panama and Trinidad and Tobago, who infamously knocked them out of 2018 contention with a win in Couva. With best price odds of 2.50 at Betway, they appear a little light on value.
Jamaica are rated an outside chance of winning the tournament despite having made the final of the competition in 2015 and 2017. The island nation knocked the USA out of contention four years ago, only to be defeated comfortably in the final by Mexico, while it was the reverse in 2017 when they beat Mexico in the semi-finals before losing to the US in the decider.
They've shown they can match it with the best on their day, but the question is whether they can lift in consecutive matches.
Out of the top contenders, it really has to be Mexico and they are our pick for the outright CONCACAF betting odds market.
Does Canada have a chance
While the last nine tournaments have been won by the USA or Mexico, the event prior to that was won by the Canadian soccer team. Incredibly, Canada only made it through the group stage thanks to a coin-toss, which was required to separate them and guest nation Korea.
From there they came from behind to beat Mexico with a golden goal in extra time, knocked out Trinidad and Tobago despite the presence of Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke, and defeated Colombia in the final. What a time to be alive for Canadian fans.
Canadian soccer has come a long way since then, and the establishment of the Canadian Premier League is a step in the right direction. Canada are currently ranked sixth in CONCACAF, ahead of the Jamaicans, which is an indication of their progress.
So is there a chance history could repeat in 2019? Well, it's a long shot but it's not out of the question.
Canada's group features Mexico, which will be their first hurdle, although they shouldn't have too many problems against Cuba and Martinique. If they do progress in second-place, they will likely face Costa Rica in the quarter-finals, although they won't have to play Mexico again unless both teams make the semi-finals.
It's never easy to beat the Mexicans, although they did it in 2000, so there's a chance it could happen again this year, and if they can do that - it just could be the Canadian's year to celebrate. Bettors get huge outsider odds of 29.00 for Canada to win the Gold Cup at William Hill.
How to bet on the CONCACAF Gold Cup
Betting on the CONCACAF Gold Cup is not limited to the outright market. There are a stack of options available when you're looking at betting on soccer - here are the best of the bunch:
CONCACAF Gold Cup Moneyline Odds
The easiest and most popular type of soccer wager is a moneyline bet, although unlike most North American sports there are three possible outcomes rather than two. This is because the moneyline market focuses on the 90-minute result.
In the group stage, games have no overtime and a draw is an outcome that occurs around 15% of the time, while in the knockout stage you can still have a game that results in a draw, although there will be extra-time and penalties that don't affect the moneyline result.
For example, two of Mexico's knockout matches at the 2015 Gold Cup went to extra-time, and while they eventually won each match, the result for the moneyline market would have been a draw, as that was the correct result after 90 minutes. The draw is usually available for odds around 3.50 or more, so it is an enticing bet in a game featuring low-scoring.
CONCACAF Gold Cup Draw no Bet Odds
If three outcomes isn't for you, all sportsbooks will offer a Draw No Bet line, which essentially eliminates the draw from the equation. The odds you'll see will be lower, although a drawn match will result in a refunded bet, so it's a smart choice in a game where there's not likely to be much between the teams.
CONCACAF Gold Cup Over Under Odds
The over/under market is quite popular in international soccer. The line for this market is usually set at 2.5 goals, although there's always the option to pick your own line. The overs will normally be the favourite in a group stage game, as there is often a lare gap in quality between the competing teams, while the knockout rounds tend to be much closer and less likely to go over 2.5 goals.
CONCACAF Gold Cup Correct Score Odds
Picking the score is tough, but well worth the effort if you can get it right. Typically a 1-0 victory to the favourite team will be the lowest-priced betting option, and that will normally get you in excess of 7.00, so it's a great market to make a lot of cash in a hurry. In 2017, Jamaica knocked out Mexico with a 1-0 victory, a result that was paying around 15.00.
CONCACAF Gold Cup Odds/Evens Odds
If you're more of a roulette gamer, the odds and evens market lets you choose a straight up 50-50 bet on whether there will be an odd or even number of goals in a particular fixture.
CONCACAF Gold Cup Both Team to Score Odds
This line is a hidden gem of soccer betting, although it can be more treacherous than one may think. It seems reasonably likely that both teams will score in a match, although the chances of it happening are around the 65% mark.
For that reason, the 'yes' option is usually the favourite, but when betting on a team with a good defensive record, you may be better off selecting 'no'. The last two CONCACAF Gold Cup finals have seen both teams score.
