Gold Cup Group A Betting

The 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup has the largest field of any Gold Cup yet. From 2000 to 2017, the competition featured 12 teams, but the powers that be decided to bump that up to 16 to give more countries an opportunity to make it to the biggest regional stage. Debutantes like Bermuda and Guyana will have their first chance to shine, and they will look to make the most of their opportunity.

Group A is not expected to be much of a competition. Overall tournament favorites Mexico are the heavyweights in the group, and Canada is expected to finish behind El Tri to advance to the quarterfinals. Cuba and Martinique round out the group, but few observers are expecting much of them. They will look to turn that conventional wisdom on its head.

Best Gold Cup Finish: Winners (1993, 1996, 1998, 2003, 2009, 2011, 2015)

Former Atlanta United head coach Tata Martino is the man in charge of Mexico coming into the Gold Cup. This will be his first major competition as coach of El Tri, and the expectations are for Mexico to win it all.

Mexico is certainly the most talented team in the region. This might end up being the last major competition for some of their veterans though, as they are getting up there in terms of age. Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa is likely to be the man in net, and he is now at 100 caps for Mexico. Captain Andres Guardado is going to be the man in the middle of the pitch trying to make it happen, while the wonderful Chicharito remains the team’s top forward.

El Tri did not look sharp after the World Cup, losing five of six matches, but they won their first two matches under Tata in March. They beat both Chile and Paraguay by two goals.


FIFA Ranking: 78

Best Gold Cup Finish: Winners (2000)

It’s hard to know what to make of the Canucks. This is a perennially underachieving team, and although they posted good results in Nations League Qualifying, they mostly played small island nations without much real talent. Canada beat the US Virgin Islands, Dominica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and French Guiana by a combined score of 18-1.

Atiba Hutchinson is the most capped player on the team (81), and he is expected to play a big role for the Canadians once again. The top attackers are all young though, and the two most talented players are Besiktas’ Cyle Larin and Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies. Canada is widely expected to finish second in the group.


FIFA Ranking: 174

Best Gold Cup Finish: Quarterfinals (2003, 2013, 2015)

The Lions of the Caribbean last made it to the Gold Cup in 2015, and they ended up making it to the quarterfinals despite finishing third in their group. Cuba was placed in the same group with Mexico then and got blasted 6-0 by El Tri, and they were crushed by the same score line by the United States in the Quarterfinals.

Cuba went 3-1 in Nations League qualifying, beating Grenada and the Dominican Republic before losing to Haiti. This is a team that doesn’t have all the talent that it could due to defections over the years, but Luis Paradela and Yordan Santa Cruz were two of the leading scorers during qualifying.

Best Gold Cup Finish: Quarterfinals (2002)

For a small island nation, Martinique has performed admirably over the years. They qualified for the Gold Cup back in 2017, and they beat Nicaragua and nearly beat the United States in that competition.

They were one of three teams to win all four of their matches in the Nations League qualifying, beating Puerto Rico, Guadeloupe, Antigua and Barbuda, and the British Virgin Islands. Martinique secured a clean sheet in three of those matches.

Kevin Parsemain scored both goals against the US two years ago, and he led the country in goals during qualifying. He is the one to watch for Martinique.

The 2019 Gold Cup is currently set to be the biggest field ever. The field has increased rapidly as interest has picked up in the event over the years, and many Central American and Caribbean nations will send teams to the event. Bermuda and Guyana are making their first appearances in the competition, while Jamaica are out to win the Gold Cup after finishing runner-up in 2015 and 2017.

The Stars and Stripes and El Tri have combined to win the last nine Gold Cups with the United States winning five titles and Mexico winning four. Those two countries are again the favorites headed into this year’s event, and they are expected to meet at the final in Soldier Field.

This will mark the first time that Gold Cup matches are held outside the North American continent. Group stage matches in San Jose, Costa Rica and Kingston, Jamaica will be the first of their kind in Central America and the Caribbean. Those stadiums are expected to be packed for the competition.
