USA Vs. Jamaica: Gold Cup Semi-Finals 2019 | Expert Picks And Betting Odds
USA Vs. Jamaica Gold Cup Betting Preview
Team USA will enter their 2019 Gold Cup semifinal matchup as the favorite over Jamaica, but after barely beating Curacao in the quarterfinals many wonder if the Americans can pull this one off. MyBookie.ag has team USA as big favorites to win this semifinal matchup and advance to their 11th Gold Cup final. At -188 there is an implied probability of 65% the Americans win outright. The United States beat Curacao 1-0 in the quarterfinals but left a lot of doubts about their game, especially their attack. Curacao should have been an easy opponent, but the Americans never put them away, and they had to sweat more than expected to get the W.
USA Vs. Jamaica Betting Odds
|-188 (Draw +276)||Moneyline||+567 (Draw +276)|
|-1 (-109)||Spread||+1 (-120)|
|Over 2.5 goals (-104)||Game Total||Under 2.5 goals (-126)|
Team USA remains as the second-best option out of the four remaining in the Gold Cup. The Americans are listed +135 to win the tournament. They are the current champs, but they haven’t given us a glimpse of their best form yet. That future bet has an implied probability of 43% of winning. Only Mexico at -125 has better chances, according to MyBookie. Jamaica is no piece of cake. In fact, other than Mexico it might be the biggest threat for the United States to win another Gold Cup title. The Jamaicans are underrated because they haven’t completed a run to the title. They have reached the final in the last two editions, but lost both times; once to Mexico and the last one against the USA.
There is a lot of value on betting Jamaica to win this tournament for the first time. The Jamaicans are +1000 in the future odds with a 9% of implied probability to make it happen. Their 1-0 over Panama in the quarterfinal showed they are a well-organized team that feels comfortable in this tournament. One of the most intriguing odds around this game is the spread where Jamaica is +1 at a -120 value. With this bet, there is a possibility of collecting with two different results. We will win if Jamaica beats the United States in regulation time or extra time.
We would win if the matchup ended up in a draw and the winner is decided by penalties. There is some sort of safety net with this bet because even if the Americans win by one score, the wager will end up in a PUSH. It’s not the result we want if we take this bet, but we don’t often get to play with a safety net like in this case. Either way, this game should be a close one, decided by one score at the most. The 2.5 goals total seems too high for two teams with struggling attacks and good enough defenses. So take the Under with a -126 value as well.
