Jamaica v Mexico Gold Cup Final Betting Tips: Match Preview
While their opponent is no surprise to reach the final, Jamaica truly astonished the world by managing to eliminate United States, the host and 2013’s trophy holder of the tournament. If there’s one word to describe this team is, consistency.
Jamaica topped group B, with 7 points winnings 2 games and drawing one, scoring just 4 goals in those games and conceding 2. A rather easy opponent in the quarter-finals (Haiti), minimal victory with 1-0 and on paper seemed like the team will surrender to the much classy USA. However two first half goals, did the job, and United States wasn’t able to recover from them.
After the 3 losses recorded in Copa America 2015, Jamaica started this tournament with a draw vs Costa Rica followed by 4 consecutive victories. Performance rating @ 64% with a record against Mexico W1-D1-L4. The last and only victory was back in 2008 for a World Cup qualification, a home victory with 1-0.
Being able to eliminate the strongest team in the tournament, gave Jamaica the moral boost and we expect them to come out in this final with a lot of self-confidence and lift the trophy with betting odds @ 3.10 from bet365. Though we are uncertain of the method of winning this final, we believe the Draw No Bet Jamaica @ 3.25 with bet365 is another good bet, with a lot of value.
We are still waiting for Mexico to show their true potential in this tournament. Though the team has reached the finals, it failed to impress at any stage of the event. Being placed in Group C with teams like Trinidad and Tobago, Cuba and Guatemala, everyone expected Mexico to top the board, but that didn’t happen, and the team qualified as 2nd after 2 draws and a victory.
The quarter-final against Costa Rica was more of the same old, after a 0-0 in regular time and a 1-0 in extra time, Mexico advanced to the semi-finals to face Panama, and after a 1-1 in regular time won with 2-1 in extra time. What’s interesting about this game is that Mexico received a penalty in the 100th minute after 10 minutes of injury time, and scored from a 2nd penalty in the 105th.
Would be interesting to follow if they would have the same amount of luck in the final match as in the previous game. Despite their performance record of 71%, unbeaten in 7 games with 3 victories and 4 draws, and record against Jamaica W4-D1-L1, they would be facing a far more consistent team that only recorded 1 draw and 4 consecutive wins afterwards.
We do believe Mexico is a favorite for this match, but the odds @ 1.85 are unjustified, considering their way of qualifying to the final and overall performance.
While Mexico is a favorite for this match with far more class and experience, the odds that bet365 is giving us @ 1.85 seem too low, for a team that has qualified with 2 penalty goals in 10 minutes injury time, and 5 minutes in over time.
Jamaica on the other hand is making a surprising appearance in the final, after eliminating the host and favourite to win this tournament USA who were flawless until that match. Ironically both Jamaica and Mexico participated in Copa America 2015, and left after the group stage, but reached the final here.
We are going for the long shot here with Jamaica to lift the trophy @ 3.10 and Draw No Bet Jamaica @ 3.25 as we believe they have shown us consistency which we can back.
