USA vs Jamaica: Americans to advance further
USA national team won two most recent head-to-head matches against Jamaica, but should we expect another victory on July 26? What to expect from this encounter? The answer is in our prediction.
USA national team confirmed the status of the favourite of its group. Gregg Berhalter's team performed below expectations in the first match, scoring only one goal in the game against Haiti, but situation changed in the match against Martinique. The Yanks scored six goals in the second match and conceded only one. In the third match Americans beat Canada by a 1:0 score. USA won the group with 9 points.
Jamaica national team was in the group with Costa Rica, Suriname and Guadeloupe. Theodore Whitmore's team secured a play-off spot after first two matches, where Jamaicans beat Suriname (2:0) and Guadeloupe (2:1). In the third round Jamaica had a chance to fight for the first place in the group, but Costa Rica took the victory, leaving Jamaicans on the second position.

So far we didn't see the American team playing in full strength, Yanks won three matches in the group without any problems. There is obviously some difference in class between two teams, even when Americans are not playing with their strongest line-up. USA national team is in great form now, so Jamaicans won't have many chances for a success.

Jamaica is a clear underdog in this match, Americans have a better squad and they were looking better in the group stage. Jamaicans are unlikely to keep the clean sheet, but they should be able to score a goal as well - in the recent head-to-head matches they were scoring goals pretty regularly.
Our second bet is on both teams to score
