Mexico vs. Jamaica Betting Preview
The heightened pressure is likely to come on Mexico’s shoulders on Sunday, as they will be expected to claim victory and secure their place in the finals of the Nations League. They currently sit top of the Group A standings, which means that they only need to avoid defeat to reach the next stage. However, their qualification for the Gold Cup is already assured.
Mexico has won twice and drawn once in their three matches in the group to this point. The nation boasts the best-attacking record, registering six goals, while they have allowed just one. They set up this winner-take-all showdown after claiming a straightforward 2-0 away win on Thursday against Suriname.
However, they were made to work hard for maximum points, with the deadlock not being broken until the 64th minute by Johan Vasquez. Mexico surrendered a number of chances on that win, and they can’t afford Jamaica the same luxury on Sunday. But, all the Mexico stats point toward a home win.
Making Jamaica picks for this fixture on Sunday could be a lucrative selection, given that they are massive outsiders to claim victory against Mexico. However, they at least come into this showdown on the road with a fighting chance of reaching the Nations League finals. Jamaica has won once in their three matches, with an away draw against Suriname looking to be a damaging result in hindsight.
Jamaica has certainly impressed in their first campaign in Nations League Division A, but the lack of quality in the final third could be a factor that holds them from progressing further.
The soccer stats also make for grim reading for the visitors this weekend, as they have lost 21 of the previous 30 meetings against Mexico. That includes a run of three without victory heading into this weekend.
Mexico vs. Jamaica Betting Picks
The Mexico vs Jamaica odds appear to have the result of this match correct. We find it challenging to take on the hosts, as they have the better quality across the field.
Their ability to score goals could be the decisive factor in this Group A showdown on Sunday, and we could see them registering a 2-0 win to reach the finals of the Nations League.
- Pick: Mexico to win 2-0 (+500)
