One tip from tonight’s gold cup action, but I will have more tips up at around 9pm for tonight’s MLS action (make sure you enter our £100 competition!!)
USA v Cuba (8:15pm)
Their 6-1 demolition of minnows Belize in their opening game goes to show their intent for this tournament. The fact that this is their “second rate” side actually plays in to our favour. This is for two reasons – 1. the bookies rate them a little weaker 2. the players who are playing have a chance to stake a claim for a regular place in the national side. Cuba’s 3-0 defeat to Costa Rica was convincing, they deserved to lose by three goals, at least. USA, hosts, will come in to this game to make a statement again, only this time they should also keep a clean sheet. It’s not often we use such high lines on the Asian Handicap, but here we actually feel we are ‘playing it safe’ by going with this line. A lot of chances for USA, and ultimately we expect a lot of goals – again.
USA v Cuba – USA -3.75 Asian Handicap (1.77 – 188bet)
