Gold Cup Final 2019: Mexico vs. USA – Betting Odds And Expert Picks
Mexico vs. USA Gold Cup Final 2019 Betting Preview
The two favorites to win the 2019 Gold Cup are set to meet in the final on Sunday Night, when the United States and Mexico clash in the CONCACAF derby, at the Soldier Field in Chicago.
Whenever CONCACAF sets the Gold Cup brackets, they hope for the final to have either the United States or Mexico. If they manage to get both in the last game of the tournament, then they have hit the jackpot.
MyBookie.ag listed Mexico +100 to win this game outright in the money line. The Mexicans were the favorite from the start listed at +135. Their road to the final, however, hasn’t been easy.
They needed extra time both against Costa Rica and Haiti to win their matchups. Against the Ticos, they even required penalty kicks to advance.
Mexico vs. USA Betting Odds
|+100 (Draw +206)||Moneyline||+250 (Draw +206)|
|-0.5 (+102)||Spread||+0.5 (-136)|
|Over 2.5 goals (-112)||Game Total||Under 2.5 goals (-117)|
The problem with this Mexico team is their attacking form. They don’t seem to create enough opportunities to score regularly.
Coach Gerardo el Tata Martino said his team has improved on each game. But that looks like a political answer from a manager that knows they have disappointed to a degree.
Team USA gets to this final after beating Jamaica 3-1 in the semifinal. The game was somehow out of the ordinary after it was delayed for a couple of hours due to lightning in Tennessee.
The first few minutes, at least, saw the American team being aggressive up front looking to score early. It also helped that the Jamaicans seems to be much disorganized on defense
The United States has played well during the tournament, but Jamaica was their biggest test of the competition, and it didn’t look like a test at all.
Against Mexico, they will soon realize what their reality is. A +250 bet on the Americans winning this game has an implied probability of 29% of being collected.
History says the Americans don’t do well in Gold Cup finals played against Mexico. The Mexicans have won four of the five finals they have played against the United States. The one that they lost was actually played at the Soldier Field ten years ago.
I don’t see any of these two teams imposing their will over the other. They have a very similar level, and it’s fair to say this game could go either way. Christian Pulisic is the Americans’ best player, but he’s yet to show us his best form.
He scored twice against Jamaica, but he took advantage of some rebounds to score with an empty net, both times. Mexico has Raul Jimenez as their top player.
Jimenez scored goals against Costa Rica and Haiti, but he’s that type of player who can’t create his own shot. He needs the help of his teammates to be in a position to score.
Rather than give you a winner, the best bet on this game is the UNDER with a -112 value. I can’t see many goals on this one; especially with both teams struggling to create scoring chances.
