The United States will meet Jamaica on Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Dallas for CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals. The Yanks go into the quarterfinal after topping Group B. Meanwhile, Jamaica finished second in Group C following a matchday 3 loss to Costa Rica.

The team that wins the quarterfinal clash between the United States and Jamaica will theoretically have an easier route to reach the final than the lower half of the bracket. Either Qatar or El Salvador will meet the winner of Sunday’s game in Dallas in the semifinal.

The United States are one of the favourites to win the CONCACAF Gold Cup this summer. The Yanks are at betting odds of 7/4 to win the Gold Cup. They have the second-best odds to win the Gold Cup and are only behind Mexico in sportsbooks’ betting odds. The Mexicans are at betting odds of 6/4 to win the competition.

Coach Gregg Berhalter has a squad mostly made up of Major League Soccer-based players. Jamaica have reached the semifinals in each of the last three Gold Cups. In 2015 and 2017, Jamaica reached the final and in 2019, the Reggae Boys finished fourth.

USA vs Jamaica Betting Odds


The United States have played 10 times in 2021 with just one match ending in a loss. That loss came against Switzerland in a very competitive match in late May. The Yanks have won nine of their 10 games this year. Berhalter’s team have posted two wins to nil in three matches at the Gold Cup. Those two matches finished with under 2.5 goals scored. Leading sportsbooks’ best betting odds have the United States at 61/100 to win the quarterfinal fixture against Jamaica and qualify for the semifinals.

Jamaica have blown hot and cold in 2021. The Reggae Boys have played six times with two matches ending in wins two in losses and one in a draw. Jamaica started the Gold Cup in excellent form picking up wins against Suriname and Guadeloupe. However, Theodore Whitmore’s team were brought back to Earth thanks to a 1-0 loss to Costa Rica.

Sportsbooks’ best betting odds for the quarterfinal against the United States have them at odds of 5/1. It would be quite a shock to see Jamaica upset the Americans. The Reggae Boys have reached the semifinals in each of the last two Gold Cup tournaments.

USA vs Jamaica Team News

Berhalter’s United States team suffered a key injury against Canada as centre-back Walker Zimmerman strained his hamstring. The Nashville SC defender will miss the remainder of the Gold Cup and much of the next few weeks for his club. New England Revolution defender Henry Kessler is likely to replace Zimmerman in the team.

The United States defeated Canada but struggled to do so. Berhalter has tried to mix and match his players and formation. Against the Canadians, the manager chose a 3-5-2 formation. He used a 4-2-3-1 formation at the start of the tournament against Haiti.

Colorado Rapids defender Same Vines has received rave reviews this summer. New York City FC defender James Sands has also received praise for his performances. Both players are now attracting attention from teams across the pond.

Jamaica manager Whitmore has little need to change his team. The manager is likely to play Leon Bailey and Bobby Reid in attack. Reid scored a goal versus Suriname on matchday 1 of Group C. Bailey is yet to find the back of the net. The attacking duo will hope to shock the United States. However, after disappointing against Costa Rica, Jamaica could struggle versus the Americans.

USA vs Jamaica Prediction

Both teams to score: NO @ 20/23 - BET NOW


The Yanks have kept two clean sheets at the Gold Cup and our prediction is that they will make it a third this weekend. Yes, Jamaica have a talented team and have played decently at times at the Gold Cup. However, their loss to nil versus Costa Rica was a sign that the stronger teams in CONCACAF are still too strong to overcome. Our betting tips experts expect both teams not to score in this one.

Daryl Dike to score anytime @ 11/8 - BET NOW


Daryl Dike has two goals at the Gold Cup and should start in attack for the United States. Dike is one of the best young prospects the Americans have in the team. Berhalter actually has quite a number of strong, young players who have come through MLS clubs’ academies. Dike has scored three goals in six appearances for the US national team.

Under 2.5 goals scored @ 17/20 - BET NOW

\

Our betting experts have looked over the games at the Gold Cup and predict under 2.5 goals between the United States and Jamaica. Two of the United States’ three games finished with under 2.5 goals. Jamaica saw under 2.5 goals in two of their three games. However, our betting tips experts note that Jamaica played two weaker CONCACAF teams to open the tournament.

Jamaica should struggle with the Americans’ attacking play. The Reggae Boys are likely to spend much of the match on Sunday in defence. The United States should get the win on Sunday and punch their ticket for the semifinals against either Qatar or El Salvador.
