USA to win and over 2.5 goals

When you look at how these two nations fare head-to-head the over 2.5 goals could be described as a coin toss. It’s happened five times in the last 10 meetings. The reason we’re confident this fixture will see goals in excess of 2.5 is two-fold. For starters, the USA squad is in the best shape it’s been for years and their last five games has seen a staggering 22 goals. Jamaica, meanwhile, have a slightly more conservative record with 12 goals across their last five. Considering the fact Jamaica’s squad boasts four centre backs who ply their trade in England’s EFL its fair to say they’ll have their work cut out against the likes of Christian Pulisic, Josh Sargent and Tim Weah.

USA to win – 2 goals

The next of our predictions sees us backing the States to run out comfortable winners. For the game to finish with the minimum of a three-goal margin would buck the trend of the head-to-head record the two teams share; it’s not happened since a 5-0 USA win back in 2002. Still, they are a different beast now even compared to a couple of years ago. Their last three games have seen them take their opponents apart; they’ve hit Trinidad & Tobago for seven, beat El Salvador 6-0 and ran out 6-2 victors over Panama. We’re not expecting that sort of margin here but even with a -2 handicap, there is a good chance they edge things.

Sergino Dest to score first

Okay, of all the tips out there backing Dest to score first is the boldest. In fact, it’s probably fair to describe it as a long shot given he’s a right back. That said, the former Ajax man is someone who loves to attack and has quality in the final third. Throw in the fact he’s just scored his second and third Barcelona goals in their comprehensive win over Real Sociedad and it’s likely he’ll arrive in high spirits. If he gets a chance to have a shot, there is a big chance he’ll take it in his current form.

USA vs Jamaica Preview: USA to Score Big Again

USA

The strength of this current USA squad is as good as it has been for years. Even with big players missing from the roster this time – notably the likes of Weston McKennie – they can still brag some serious quality. Pulisic, Sargent and Weah all carry a big goal threat. We’ve not even touched on the likes of Tyler Adams and Gio Reyna who could dictate the play either.

Jamaica

If the USA have an abundance of attacking talent in their squad the same cannot be said for Jamaica. They suffered a big – albeit, hopefully, temporary – blow as Michail Antonio asked for more time before committing his international future to them. They have, however, named eight new faces in their squad. Long term it should make them stronger but initially, you could see a disjointed performance or two.
