USA – St. Kitts and Nevis Odds, Elections, Predictions Gold Cup Preview


The USA men’s team beat Caribbean Cinderella team St. Kitts and Nevis at their first Gold Cup.

The United States drew 1-1 with Jamaica in their opening game, a result that should not surprise some. The reggae boys have assembled a team of five players that will feature in the Premier League next season. While the US has sent home most of the European stars after their victory in the CONCACAF Nations League final.

A day later St. Kitts and Nevis lost their group opening 3-0 to Trinidad and Tobago and the result showcased their impressive form. According to FotMob, the Sugar Boyz only gave the Soca Warriors one big chance to score.

Callahan is still on the board, and the only way to succeed in the Nations League – putting. Your best players on the field and making your job easier – may be to slow down the competition. The difference between the

National League team and this team is good and familiar. This was seen in the first half against Jamaica, whose weak point was the defense.

Finally, the US national team used enough energy to force an error that led the Jamaica defense to a goal by Brandon Vazquez. The FC Cincinnati goal can start after the performance. Especially given the many ways to clear the ball inside the box against the Sugar Boys.

On the other hand, centre-back Myles Robinson may return, although uncertain, after missing the last two games of Team USA with a minor injury. His presence will bring some stability and experience to a side that turns to 19-year-old Jalen Neal in the second half against Jamaica.

St. Kitts has faced a fierce battle before. Not much has happened on his recent travels to give us an idea of ​​his capabilities against the great powers in the region.

Our closest was a 1-0 loss to Canada in a friendly match in 2018.
However, Canadian superstars Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David were still young at the time and the Canucks had not found the form or the footing to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Against T&T, St Kitts unsurprisingly gave up most of the ball possession, but nearly leveled off before Alvin Jones hit it. According to, the difference in expected goals (xG) is less than the result, 1.30 vs. 0. 77, approved for Trinidad and Tobago.

Cardiff Offensive midfielder Roman Sawyers is the best name on this list. After that, defensive midfielder Raheem Somersall has many seasons experience in USL League One, the third level of the American professional league. Goalkeeper Julani Archibald is the captain of the club playing for CF Lorca Deportiva, one of Spain’s fifth regional teams.

USA vs. st. Kitts and Nevis Pick

It has always been a strange game with a very popular band and unknown others. The market can be limited until you’re close to football and it’s best not to be too rigid about the money you put in.

Despite this group’s lack of history, he cooperates a lot with other Caribbean teams in the Americas Gold Cup and tends to score a lot, especially towards the end. Add to that the fact that the Sugar Boyz will play their second game in just 72 hours. And that the Americans, despite being strangers to each other, have more depth. So it would be a profitable bet on the opening game after the first half. Team USA are also looking to widen the goal difference after their draw with Jamaica.

So my best strategy is to score more than 2.5 goals in the second half with -150 probability 40.0% effect. It’s not cute, but history shows it has potential.

Since 2013, the United States has played seven group games against the Caribbean national teams, with opponents finishing third or fourth in their group and St. Kitts will do that. All points in the second half except one were over 2.5.

If you want to be more aggressive, check the DraftKings rates for the USA. The Americans have scored many times. In all six games following the streak, at least one American has scored more than once. I would consider supporting Vazquez (+200) as I believe he will start.

The toughest part of the 2023 Gold Cup group stage for Team USA seems to be over. WE. Men’s National Team.

A 1-1 draw for Jamaica led by four Premier League rivals in Saturday’s inaugural game in Chicago – laying a solid foundation for promotion, possibly America’s toughest challenger for the first time. Including Saint Kitts and Nevis and Trinidad and Tobago.

Their next game is on Wednesday against St Kitts (21:30) ET, FS1) and it seems simple enough. America, St. Before Kitts, the Spice Girls were ranked 139th in the FIFA rankings, and the USA was 13th. The country with a population of less than 50,000 lost their first ever Gold Cup match in a 3-0 defeat to T&T on Sunday.
A large host audience at St. Louis’ sparkling new City Park for Wednesday’s game.

Interiors favorite; FOXBet predicts a 95% chance for USMNT to win.
But on paper this looks like a simple black.

“It’s a cliché, but there are no easy games in football,” US defender Matt Miazga said on Tuesday. “I’ve had similar situations at club level in the past, you don’t have a good goal when you think you’re going to win, you lose the game or it’s a harder game than you wanted.

But beating the Sugar Boyz alone won’t be enough to secure the quarterfinals. If Jamaica still wins, St. Kitts, they, America and Soca Warriors can score even with the ball. It is the same to determine which two teams will advance to the end of the game and which will not.

“We want to play fast, we want to press, we want to control the ball,” said B.J., interim coach of the USA National team. Callahan. “If we do that and we finish at a high level, we believe the goals will come.

“We won’t be thinking about special scores or anything like that,” added Callahan.
“We want to improve Jamaica’s performance.”

There are places. Most Americans in Europe’s top clubs retired after winning the CONCACAF Nations League earlier this month. Q. There are no perfect competitors. He also lost one of the most experienced names in the open. Jordan Morris has not practiced since he injured his knee against the Reggae Boys and is unlikely to play on Wednesday.

Callahan, who suffered a calf injury, said in better injury news that defender Miles Robinson, one of five players on the National League roster, would be available.

But Callahan may not use the same starting line from Saturday, at least if the players can speak to the media this week – Miazga, Gianluca Busio and Sean Johnson are most likely on the bench – that’s one. to show.

It may not be scientific but the coach isn’t denying that this was the best game to loosen things up a bit against T&T in Sunday’s group final, and Team USA has learned not to take it as the worst. There is a problem. In 2017, the United States was defeated 2-1 in Trinidad and did not qualify for next year’s World Cup. “We believe in every player drafted in this 23-man squad,” Callahan said. “We will change.

After all, change can be good. Second substitutes Cade Cowell and Brandon Vazquez provided the burst of energy they needed. When they came out of the bench against Jamaica. A goal scored in the 88th minute saved a match that could have had a big impact. According to Team USA requirements. One or two hitters could start on Wednesday. While there are risks to the team as a whole. There are many newcomers who want to establish themselves where they need to be proven.

shirt, big time,” Miazga said, “because you never know when you’ll be wearing it again, right? You have to make sure that you are ready to be good, motivated and determined. I think a lot of people are ready to do that.
