Mexico, US headline Gold Cup quarters


Mexico and the United States are favoured to reach the final four of the 2017 Concacaf Gold Cup as the quarter-final of the biennial competition begins later this week.

The El Tri, who won two of three group stage games to finish top of Group C, will meet Honduras at the University of Phoenix Stadium to see who will advance to the next round.

The US, who also won two of three games in the group stage to finish as Group B co-leaders with Panama, will host El Salvador at Lincoln Financial Field.

A win by Mexico against Honduras is backed at 1.52, while a -1.0 handicap against the 2015 Concacaf Cup champions is priced at 1.93, which is understandable after Mexico thrashed Honduras 3-0 in a World Cup qualifier earlier this year.

In the match between US and El Salvador, the hosts are heavily favoured to beat the visitors at 1.23 in 1×2, though a 1.99 price is offered if they can win against a -1.75 handicap.

Costa Rica, who topped Group A with two wins in three games, are backed to defeat Panama at 2.12. The Costa Ricans have yet to taste defeat but will be up against the Panamanians, who stood toe-to-toe with US in their first game in the tourney.

Group C’s Jamaica, who have two draws in three fixtures, will face Canada and the meeting between the pair is expected to be the closest in the last eight. In the 1×2 price of this match, a win by the Jamaicans is priced at 2.83, while a win for Canada is backed at 2.65 and a draw is offered at 2.86.

Mexico are favoured to win it all at 2.50, while second in the betting are the USMNT at 2.80.
