USA The Early Favorite To Beat Jamaica In Concacaf Quarterfinals

Posted on July 23, 2021

The EURO and Copa America tournaments might be over, but Concacaf Gold Cup action is taking place this weekend. Team USA is still in the fight after squeezing past Canada in a 1-0 thriller.

Now, Jamaica is in the crosshairs.

Both teams will go head-to-head this Sunday in the Gold Cup quarterfinals. You can catch all the action at 9:30 p.m. on FS1.

While a handful of different teams get down to business at the Tokyo Olympics, Team USA soccer will be camped out in Arlington Texas.

This is the third-straight Olympics that the men’s team failed to qualify for.

A gold medal might not be in its future this year, but a different kind of gold could be.

The team has won the Gold Cup six different times in the past, with the last win coming in 2017.

The US will have to get through Jamaica first before it can worry about winning the tournament.

Thankfully for fans that like to bet on soccer, you can wager on all the Gold Cup action in Indiana.

DraftKings Sportsbook has Team USA as the early favorite against this Jamaican squad.

  • USA: -175
  • Draw: +320
  • Jamaica: +500

Oddly enough, Team USA had to take down Jamaica in the final game of its Gold Cup run back in 2017.

The two teams seem to always run into each other during the tournament. They’ve faced off in the last five Gold Cups, with the US taking a 4-1 record in those games.

Here’s a quick look at the odds for some of the top Gold Cup teams:

  • Mexico: +150

  • Costa Rica: +1,000
  • Qatar: +1,200
  • Canada: +1,400

For example, you can bet on the over/under of the total number of goals scored. FanDuel Indiana has that value set at 2.5 right now.

Just like any other sporting events, there’s a litany of prop bets and other options out there including:

  • First and last team to score
