USA v Jamaica Predictions




USA v Jamaica Betting Tips Explained

Twelve teams arrived in America earlier this month and now just two remain, as USA and Jamaica battle it out for the title on Thursday.

The Americans are aiming for a sixth title as they prepare to make their sixth final appearance in the last seven editions of the Gold Cup.

Bruce Arena’s men, who are now unbeaten in 13 matches since he took over from Jurgen Klinsmann, secured their spot with a 2-0 victory over a resistant Costa Rica on Sunday.

La Sele held firm until the 72nd minute when Jozy Altidore broke the deadlock, before Clint Dempsey sealed the win with his 57th international goal – becoming his country’s joint all-time leading scorer with Landon Donovan in the process.

What a stage this would be for Dempsey to break the record outright and it is worth a punt on him doing so by finding the net at any time here.

Although, standing in his and the hosts’ way is Jamaica, who are appearing in a second straight final and seeking a first title.

Theodore Whitmore’s men are here courtesy of a dramatic victory over Mexico on Sunday, when Kemar Lawrence struck in the 88th minute to secure just a second win in 15 attempts against El Tri.

The Reggae Boyz may have won just once in their last four attempts against USA, but the sole success did come in the 2015 Gold Cup semi-final and that will stand them in good stead on Thursday.

As with all finals, we can probably expect a close fought contest with neither nation wanting to overly chance their arm or give too much away.

Therefore, given their experience of the big occasion and slight advantage in terms of quality, it is worth backing a narrow victory in favour of the States. 

Just one goal is all it takes to win a tournament and that could well be the case for Arena’s men here.


USA v Jamaica Stats
