USA vs. Cuba Betting Odds – 2015 Gold Cup Quarterfinals

A great little matchup on tap as USA vs. Cubs features betting odds of United States -1111, Cuba +2100, Tie +950, Total: 3.5

The United States and Cuba meet in the opening quarterfinal matchup of the Gold Cup.

After winning Group A with seven points from two wins and a draw, the United States will look to ease past Cuba and into the semifinals of the Gold Cup. The USA was less than convincing in the group stage with two one-goal wins and one draw, and the country’s play must improve going forward if it hopes to repeat as champions of CONCACAF’s showcase tournament. Some of the best American players have been in fine form, including Clint Dempsey, who has three goals from two-and-a-half games of action, and Michael Bradley, who has a goal and an assist to his name thus far in the tournament. Jozy Altidore has been omitted from the knockout stage roster due to fitness concerns, and veteran DaMarcus Beasley has been added to the squad. The USA will be confident of its chances of winning comfortably against a Cuba side that advanced to the quarterfinals despite having a -7 goal differential in the group stage.

The Cubans began the tournament with a 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Mexico in a game in which the Caribbean nation was missing its manager and seven players. A more respectable 2-0 loss in the country’s second game was then followed up by a 1-0 win over Guatemala, and the three points proved to be enough to advance. Cuba has certainly improved over the course of the tournament, but the USA is an opponent of the same caliber as Mexico, which defeated Cuba by six goals.

This game will likely feature plenty of attacking action and over 3.5 goals should be scored. Most – if not all – of these goals could be scored by the United States, who should win comfortably, perhaps by a score of 4-0.
