USA v Cuba Betting Tips: Match Preview
Despite the fact that coach Jürgen Klinsmann gave a rest to most of his starters in the match with Panama, his team managed to avoid defeat, and finished first in the group with 7 points and no losses. Current performance rating 93%, with 6 victories and 1 draw in the last 7 games.
United States, a favorite to win this event from the beginning looks more certain now than ever, facing a rather easy opponent in the quarter-finals. Against Cuba, the team has 5 games and 5 victories, scoring a total of 20 goals in those games (an average 4 goals per game) and conceding 3.
Obviously backing USA @ 1.08 has no value at all, so we gotta look at the Asian Handicap betting markets. Considering the statistics and handicap from -2.5 goals and up is a good idea. In 2013 when both teams met in this tournament, United States easily won with 4-1. In the 2003 edition of this tournament, USA won with 5-0.
Tough luck for Cuba, after qualifying for the quarter-finals as the second best third team, they will face the favorite and host of this tournament United States. A hundred percent loss ratio against this opponent, scoring just 3 goals in 5 games and conceding 20. The team hasn’t done more in CONCACAF Gold Cup 2015 either, scoring just one goal and conceding 8.
Despite the fact that the team managed to record a victory against Guatemala, the other 2 games were heavy losses, where no goals where scored, and 8 were conceded. Current performance rating 29% with 1 victory and 4 losses in the last 7 games. Great value in the betting odds for Cuba @ 29.00 to win the match and 9.50 to record a draw in regular time.
Close to impossible, we believe this is where Cuba’s participation in this tournament ends.
It’s quite difficult to find a worthy bet in this match, considering the class difference between both teams. Bet365 is giving out USA -2.5 @ 1.63 which seems somewhat all right and safe, considering that on average, United States scores 4 goals against Cuba.
Makes sense to look for a lot of goals in this match. A regular Over 2.5 Goals won’t do, as the odds are below 1.30. However an Over 3.5 Goals @ 1.73 seems well worth and safe considering the average of 4.6 total goals per game.
