MEXICO vs USA
The final that everyone expected was confirmed when the USA coasted to a 3-1 victory over Jamaica in the semi-finals. Mexico had already booked their ticket to Chicago courtesy of a win over Haiti, although they were made to work for the victory as the unfancied Haiti side took them to extra time.
It sets up a fascinating contest on paper. The USA had a terrible preparation for this tournament, losing in their warm-up games and looking fairly average on the pitch. Yet they've now put together five straight wins with a goal difference of 17-4, and enter the match with good prospects.
Mexico has not been as convincing, although they did have tougher opponents in the knockout stage. In any case, this is a match that you would expect Mexico to win.
English Premier League striker Raul Jiminez has been the difference for the Mexicans in the crunch games, and expect him to be key in leading his side to victory on the road.
Given that Mexico has been taken to extra-time twice in a row, there is a sense this one could also go the distance, although we're picking a 90-minute victory for the Mexicans at very decent odds. Go for Mexico to win (2.15).
HAITI vs MEXICO
Haiti's incredible run continued with a big comeback over Canada in the quarter-finals. However, it's going to be very tough for them to beat Mexico, a team that is a class above at this tournament. While Mexico needed penalties to overcome Costa Rica, and even though Haiti did beat Costa Rica in their final group match, this is still a game Mexico should win comfortably. The odds are quite low for Mexico straight up (1.24), but the value pick is for under 2.5 goals (2.05).
JAMAICA vs USA
Both these teams recorded narrow 1-0 victories over their quarter-final opponents, and despite USA's clear favouritism leading into this one it is bound to be another tight affair. We can't see Jamaica causing an upset on American soil, so the head to head pick is USA (1.44). If you are looking for a wager with better odds, we think that there will be goals in this match - go for Both Teams To Score (2.54).
Quarter Finals Picks
HAITI vs CANADA
Haiti shocked Costa Rica in their final group match, which means that Canada potentially have a better chance of going deep in this tournament. This is a hard match to call, but considering both teams have hit the back of the net in all their matches so far, there is a good chance that both teams will score here (1.82).
MEXICO vs COSTA RICA
Two big teams will go head to head in the early knockout stages, which should really open up the tournament. Mexico will start as the clear favourite (1.57), although the team does not have a great record in knockout competition. We expect Costa Rica to be much better in this match, and think they can at least take the match to extra time. That means, you should select the draw at great odds (4.00).
JAMAICA vs PANAMA
This one really could go either way. Panama showed against the USA that they are a compact side that is tough to beat, while Jamaica thrive on the big tournaments and are notable over-achievers in the knockout stages. This is another match that we see going to extra time and potentially beyond, so pick the draw here.
USA vs CURACAO
Team USA has been flawless so far in the tournament and that is almost certain to continue against Curacao, a team that was never expected to reach the quarter-finals. While the odds on a USA win are far too low to consider a bet, the smart pick is 'no' in the both teams to score market, as Curacao has only hit the back of the net twice in this tournament. The USA are unlikely to concede to them at home.
Round 3 Picks
CANADA vs CUBA
Canada are solid favourites against Cuba, and should walk away with the three points to take them into the next round. Pick Canada to win (1.17). We also expect Cuba's defensive woes to continue - bet this match is over 2.5 goals.
HAITI vs COSTA RICA
This is another group stage match that should be straight forward. Costa Rica beat Nicaragua 4-0 in their opener, and we expect a similar scoreline here. While odds on Costa Rica aren't overly high for the win, you will find value in 'Both Teams to Score' market. Select 'NO' to add some dough to your bankrolll.
HONDURAS vs EL SALVADOR
This is easily the biggest match of the final matchday. These Central American neighbours have a long and tense history, and Honduras has historically had the better results in this fixture. The loser of this match could be packing their bags, so it's crucial. We are backing Honduras to get another win over their rivals and progress to the quarterfinal knockout stage of the tournament.
PANAMA vs USA
Team USA will face their biggest test of the tournament versus Panama, as this match may decide who finishes first in Group D. Despite huge odds, we are predicting a close match and like Panama's chances to get a point here. Though the USA is heavy chalk to win - bet a Draw in this final Group Stage match.
Round 2 Picks
MEXICO vs CANADA
Canada looked good in their easy 4-0 win against Martinique, although they will have to really step it up against a Mexican side who demolished Cuba 7-0 in their opener. Mexico are the big favourites to win the tournament, and really should be too good for the Canadians in this one. Choose Mexico for the win (1.21) and pick over +2.5 goals for the match (1.61)
CUBA vs MARTINIQUE
After both sides suffered heavy defeats in their respective openers, it's tough to pick a winner - although Martinique were definitely the more dangerous of the two sides. They start as favourites, and look the stronger of the two teams. Go for Martinique for the win (1.50).
EL SALVADOR vs JAMAICA
Jamaica were finalists the last time the CONCACAF Gold Cup was played, and while they face a strong looking El Salvador team, it would be a shock not to see them come away with the points here. You will see very good odds on the Jamaicans here - 2.23 for the win.
USA vs TRINIDAD & TOBAGO
Team USA didn't have the best preparation for this tournament, although this is one game they will be ready for. Trinidad & Tobago was the team that knocked them out of World Cup qualification in 2017 (video below), and revenge will be on the minds of the home side. Expect USA to win (1.14) and also expect several goals in this one - go for over +2.5 goals.
Round 1 Picks
CANADA vs MARTINIQUE
Canada open their Gold Cup campaign against Martinique, a nation they have only defeated once in four meetings. Yet this current side is more than capable of topping the group, and we expect Team Canada to get off to a winning start (1.35). There are rarely a lot of goals in opening matches, so also go for the under +2.5 total goals option (1.76).
MEXICO vs CUBA
Mexico are the tournament favourites once again and should make light work of their qualifying group. They face a Cuba side who have only won once in sixteen matches against them, and the last two fixtures at previous Gold Cup tournaments finished in 5-0 and 6-0 wins for Mexico. The head to head result is assured but not profitable, so we recommend the over 2.5 total goals option (1.12).
COSTA RICA vs NICARAGUA
Costa Rica are another team of making serious progress at this tournament, and should easily account for Nicaragua in their opening match (1.17). The interesting statistic about their recent matches is that they have all finished 1-0, so we're going against the grain and picking the under +2.5 toal goals (2.25). We also don't think Nicaragua will score, so another option is "no" in the both teams to score market (1.50).
USA vs GUYANA
The United States national soccer team will be one to watch at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, and will win comfortably in their opener against Guyana despite a poor preparation. All the odds are with the home side, so there's not too much value in the main markets, so we recommend "no" in the both teams to score market (1.48), as we can't see Guyana troubling the scorers in this match. You could also try and pick the correct score - we're going with 6-0 to the USA (9.75).

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 2.37, 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.

- Grupo B: Bermuda, Costa Rica, Haiti and Nicaragua.
- Group C: Curaçao, El Salvador, Honduras and Jamaica.
