The US have gotten off to a strong start in their CONCACAF Qualifiers but they are still off of the top spot at the moment. That could all change with a strong performance against the Jamaicans on Friday.
Jamaica will need all of the luck to fall in their favor on Friday evening if they are to take any points away from the match. The odds are stacked against them but there may yet be an opportunity with the right betting markets for Jamaica.
Team USA got off to a less than ideal start to their campaign with 2 draws against El Salvador and Canada. They would have been hoping to at least take 3 points off of El Salvador. They followed up their 2 draw with an impressive 4-1 win against the Hondurans where the US forwards seemed to be in a far more confident mood. All in all, the US will surely be looking to take a convincing win against Jamaica, as the Jamaicans have been struggling to find their feet so far in the qualifiers.
You could forgive Jamaica for being beaten by Mexico in a narrow 2-1 in their opening fixture but the 3-0 loss to Panama put a real dent into their World Cup dreams. The Jamaicans have seemed downtrodden in their games and have lacked any real confidence going forward. The attack has been toothless and the defense has been porous to say the least. If Jamaica are to get anything out of their match against the US it is going to require a massive rub of the green for them.
The head to head record is abysmal for the Jamaicans against the US. They have not won a competitive fixture against the USA since 2015. The overall stats for this fixture don’t make for great reading either as the US have won 18 from their 29 matches played.
My CONCACAF betting tips for this one are obviously leaning towards a convincing US win but you may still want to take a look at a couple of my statistical highlights for this fixture if you are looking to bet on specific markets.

My CONCACAF betting tips UK for this fixture are simple, an outright US win. You could play around with the amount of goals scored by maybe going for over 2.5 goals but I would strongly suggest keeping things simple for this one and going for a US win.
As I have already suggested, the Jamaicans just won’t have enough fire power for this fixture. The US are a well drilled team that are very good going forward as well. They have plenty of players that play in the best leagues around the world and with that kind of pedigree you can only really see one winner out of these two sides.
With that being said, you never know what might happen in football. It’s not outside the realms of possibility that the Jamaicans take home at least a point but to say that it is unlikely would be an understatement. I think it’s best to keep things simple here with your wagers, as the US are strong favorites to take home all 3 points.
