States The Obvious Choice

Live on Eurosport 2: From Sun: The CONCACAF Gold Cup starts on Sunday evening; USA have a good chance to win it at 13/8 (bet365)

Reminiscent of the Scottish Premier League, the CONCACAF Gold Cup has become something of a two-horse race in recent renewals with all but one of the last ten tournaments won by either USA or Mexico and bookies rightly expect that pair to duke it out for the honours this time around too.

Mexico are the defending champions having hammered the States 5-0 in the 2009 final and Jose Manuel de la Torre’s men are Paddy Power’s 6/4 favourites to retain the trophy while USA are 13/8 courtesy of bet365 to go one better than they did two years ago to register a fourth success in the competition in six years.

William Hill mark 9/1 against the next team in the betting, Honduras, illustrating just how difficult it is to see past the two dominant forces in the tournament but which of the duo will ultimately come out on top?

As the odds suggest, there’s little between them but with home advantage and eager to gain revenge after their humiliation in 2009, Bob Bradley’s charges might sneak it even if Manchester United’s Mexican star Javier Hernandez does look primed for a big tournament.

Meanwhile, in the group betting, Mexico and USA are short price favourites at 1/5 and 1/4 respectively to top their pools but there’s some cash to be made by backing Honduras to clinch Group B at 1/2 with bet365.

Costa Rica look a banker at 1/2 with William Hill as they face Cuba in the first phase of fixtures and Sportingbet offer an identical price for Honduras have to see off Guatemala. Subsequently, with Mexico a touch prohibitive at 2/9 (Labdrokes) against El Salvador and USA (2/5, Totesport) facing a tricky ‘derby’ against North American rivals Canada, the Costa Rica and Honduras double is worth a flutter at 23/20 with Sportingbet.

Recommended Bets:
USA to win the CONCACAF Gold Cup – 13/8 (bet365)
Double on Costa Rica and Honduras to win their opening matches – 23/20 (Sportingbet)
