Why Bet on Canada?

Contrary to many Concacaf nations that organized some friendly games in January, Canada stayed quiet after their heartbreak at the Concacaf Nations League quarterfinals.  They had their qualification almost sealed after their 2-1 win at Jamaica’s home but fell on North American soil after a penalty by Bobby de Cordoba-Reid sealed the 3-2. Not even a red card to Demarai Grey late in the game was enough for them to reach the draw.

Canada has been the growing force in North America recently, managing to take the first seed at the Qatar World Cup qualifiers. However, they have been unable to consistently fight against Mexico and the USA for titles, and this will be the case again after their elimination.

Names like Buchanan, David, Davies, and Eustáquio stand out in the squad.

Why Bet on Trinidad and Tobago?

The Caribbean nation reached the quarterfinals of the Nations League but didn’t stand much of a chance against the Americans in an unbalanced key.  On North American soil, they managed to stand strong, but a red card to Noah Powder at the 38th minute made things too complicated. After the first goal by Pepi in the 82nd minute came, it was the start of a landslide.

At home, there was a situation similar to the first game, but the other way around. Serginho Dest got a red card towards the end of the first half, and shortly after came the goals by Moore and Jones to complete the comeback in the game, although they were still far in the aggregate score.

They had a couple of friendlies with Jamaica at the beginning of the month, losing one a tying the other.

Final Betting Analysis: Canada vs. Trinidad and Tobago 

Neither of these teams is a traditional contender at the Concacaf level, but they still have the chance to show themselves in a big scenery like the Copa America. Whatever the case, it’s clear that their realities are pretty far away at the moment, and a disaster should occur for the Maple Leaf team to slip here, as the odds show.

Commanded by quality European football players like David and Davies, the Canadians may have too much power for a humble Caribbean nation to take even if they, more than likely, go out with the same mentality that against the United States.

We’ll go for a 3-0.

Go for a victory for Canada at 1.11. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $11 for a total payout of $111.
