Bet on USA because…
New manager Bruce Arena has been brilliant with his lineups. Arena brings Clint Dempsey, arguably the greatest player in USA Soccer history, off the bench. Dempsey has grabbed his new role and run with it. With Dempsey coming off the bench, USA can put a great, fresh, striker into the second half of every match.
Bet on Jamaica because…
Jamaica upset Mexico this past Sunday, July 23. The Jamaicans beat Mexico 1 to 0 in a game they were supposed to lose. How did the Reggae Boyz do it? I’m not sure. That’s why the win was so impressive. Jamaica played an incredibly patient game versus El Tri.
Expert Pick & Gold Cup Final Prediction
There’s history between these 2 teams. In 2015, Jamaica knocked the USA out of the Gold Cup Finals, and into the third-place game. The Americans should be fired up to make amends on Wednesday.
But, Jamaica beat El Tri on Sunday. Is that a reason to believe the underdog Reggae Boyz have a shot against USA? I don’t think so. Mexico obviously looked past the Jamaicans in their big upset loss. El Tri already had their sights on USA. They didn’t play nearly as well as they usually do.
What it means to me is that USA, who hasn’t allowed a goal in 3 straight matches, takes it to Jamaica on Wednesday. I don’t see the Jamaican’s putting up to big of a fight.
I think Team USA beats Jamaica by a sweet 2 to 0 score.
